Esteban Ocon making up for lost time in Abu Dhabi test

Esteban Ocon will return to a Formula 1 race seat in 2020 having spent a year out on the sidelines. The Frenchman is making up for the lost time and enjoyed driving his Renault for the first time during the Abu Dhabi Pirelli testing session. 

"It's crucial and definitely it's going to help me massively, because you arrive to testing in February with an advantage, because you have your position [in the car] fixed, you have things that you verified on track, which it's great to have the chance for that," Ocon said to Motorsport.com. 

"I didn't get much driving time this year, and to have even fewer days in February, it's a big problem.

"So to have these two days here it's basically a counter for the days we are lacking in February."

Ocon will hope to make the most of every session he gets behind the wheel and that he feels confident when the lights go out for the first time in Australia in a few months.
