Biography of Esteban Ocon

Esteban Ocon is a French F1 driver currently racing for the Alpine team.

Born on September 17, 1996, in Évreux, Normandy, Ocon is now 27 years of age.

Esteban, who claimed his first Grand Prix victory in Hungary in 2021, is one of the tallest drivers on the grid, at a height of 6ft 1ins (1.86m).

Esteban Ocon in F1

Ocon's F1 career got off to a stuttering start but finally appears to have settled down, with the Frenchman currently competing alongside Pierre Gasly.

Ocon joined the F1 grid with Manor at the 2016 Belgian Grand Prix, a deal reached through his connection to power unit supplier Mercedes.

Despite being in one of the worst-performing cars, Ocon registered a best finish of 12th at the Brazilian Grand Prix and was rewarded with a move to midfield Force India for the following season.

Ocon enjoyed an incredible first year with the team, scoring points at all but two races and finishing the year eighth, only narrowly behind teammate Sergio Perez.

In 2018, the relationship between Perez and Ocon caused Force India/Racing Point a number of problems as the pair came to blows on a number of occasions.

After Lawrence Stroll acquired the team midway through the season, it was announced that Ocon would leave Racing Point at the end of the year to make way for then-Williams driver Lance Stroll.

Ocon spent a year on the sidelines as Mercedes' reserve driver but returned to the sport one year later with Renault.

In his first season with the French manufacturer, Ocon scored the first podium of his F1 career, finishing second at the Sakhir Grand Prix.

In 2021, Ocon started strongly but endured a mini-slump at the start of the European swing.

However, a stunning drive in Hungary earned a first F1 victory, with a second podium of the season being denied at the line by Bottas in Saudi Arabia.

Ocon finished the season with a total of 74 points, placing him in 11th place in the drivers' standings.

The 2022 season marked a career highlight for Ocon, propelling him to an impressive eighth place in the driver standings with 92 points. This contribution was instrumental in securing Alpine's best-ever team finish of fourth.

However, 2023 saw Ocon's performance dip slightly, ending the season in 12th place with 58 points. This placed him four points behind his new teammate, Pierre Gasly.
