Ricciardo is making Ocon's comeback very difficult

Daniel Ricciardo has an excellent season with Renault in 2020. The Australian regularly scores good points for the team. This makes the return in Formula 1 of his teammate Esteban Ocon all the harder.

Difficult comeback

Jolyon Palmer is full of praise in his column on BBC for Ricciardo: "He is driving the wheels off his Renault and has been unlucky not to be on the podium already this season with fourth places at Silverstone, Spa and Mugello"

"Ricciardo is making it a very tough return season for Esteban Ocon, a young French star who has seemed destined for greatness", Palmer continues. Ocon drove successfully in 2017 and 2018 at Racing Point, then called Force India, where he scored many points for the team.

2021 may be even tougher

According to Palmer, Ricciardo shows great things with a team in midfield. And Ocon is going to have a tough time when the Australian leaves for McLaren and it is known that Fernando Alonso will return to Renault. "Ocon has had promising moments but is yet to be fully on top of things in 2020."
