Esteban Ocon: “It feels awesome to be back driving a Formula 1 car

Esteban Ocon has returned to Formula 1 ahead of the 2020 Formula 1 season. He will race for Renault and enjoyed testing the car he will race for the first time at the start of the season. 

The Frenchman enjoyed being back behind the wheel and can't wait for the season to start. 

“It feels awesome to be back driving a Formula 1 car," Ocon said. "I had a big smile on my face leaving the garage as it’s been a while since I’ve had my own race car. It’s really cool to think about the thousands of hours which have been put into creating this car and then feeling it come alive on track.

"In terms of our program, we’ve made a solid start and we have a good base to work from. We know we have to keep working this week and make some improvements ready for the first race.

"We have to be precise in our work and make everything count. I’m looking forward to continuing the progress through the week.”

Renault will hope to be more successful than they were last year and Ocon will be very excited to get back to racing.
