Ocon: "Even if you beat a driver like Alonso, nothing is guaranteed"

After a very good start to the season in 2021, Alpine rewarded Esteban Ocon with a renewal until the end of the 2024 season, betting on the long-term French driver with a contract of a length rarely seen in the top flight. of motoring.

In a world like Formula 1, everything changes very quickly and there are many examples of this. There is a phrase that is very harsh for the drivers and, at the same time, realistic: “You are as good as the result of your last race”, it seems exaggerated, but it really is.

In a recent Esteban Ocon interview with the Italian edition of, the Alpine driver spoke about his long-term contract with the Enstone structure and what that means for a driver at a calm level.

In Formula 1, many drivers attribute their lack of pace to the uncertainty of their future, since the vast majority of them have contracts for only one season and renewing and continuing to be part of the most sought-after grid in motorsport depends on their results. , a really demanding pressure that sometimes destroys the morale of the pilots.

Speaking about his future, the French driver acknowledged that despite having one of the longest contracts in the category, nothing in the world of F1 guarantees you a seat if you don’t get the results the team expects of you.

“I understand that nothing is certain in Formula 1. Even if you have won or stood up to a two-time world champion like Fernando, there is nothing that will guarantee your future .”

Ocon gave the most recent example to show that no matter how well you’ve done in the past, if you don’t perform at a certain point, your self-confidence quickly diminishes and your seat wobbles until you lose it, just as happened to Ricciardo this year.

“We have the example of Daniel, two years ago he was in the group of most valued drivers and today he does not have the guarantee of a seat for next season. You always have to be performing as high as possible, you cannot fall apart in no time.”

At the moment, Esteban Ocon is eighth in the team classification with a total of 66 points, seven more than Fernando Alonso, although in recent weeks the Asturian has greatly reduced the difference after an unfortunate start to the season. However, the Frenchman’s seat for 2023 is assured, while the name of his teammate next season is still unknown.
