Ocon getting ready for his first Podium finish

Esteban Ocon is gunning for a podium finish this year after becoming “becoming more and more comfortable” with his Force India car.

Ocon is under a multi-year contract with Mercedes and started with Force India in 2017. The constantly improving French driver has scored points in ten out of eleven races. He feels he has come a long way since his season debut in Australia and intends to keep moving ahead.

Ocon said, “If you look at [the pace in] Australia there was a massive step until now,”

“In the first five races I was continuously improving, then the fine details is the rest that you need to improve and I’m starting to get this.

“This takes a bit more time obviously, and yes, I’m just learning all the time, and I will not lift off until I get my podium!”

Ocon has collected 45 points till now and is happy to be sitting at the 11th place in the championship standings.

“I’m quite happy with how the season went at the moment,” he added.

“The target was to be scoring points in every race and that’s what we’re doing, [apart from] in Monaco where we were a bit unlucky.

“I feel more and more comfortable with the team each time I get into the car and with each race I do, and now I will start being on tracks I know, which helps me as well, which is good.

“I look forward to what the rest of the season brings, but at the moment I’m happy with what I’ve done.”
