29: Ocon Exclusive: Would Rather A Slower Car Than Not Race In F1 At All


Where could Esteban Ocon race in 2019? For Formula 1 fans, this question is as intriguing as ‘who could win the Drivers’ Championship in 2018?’ – and given how the driver silly season has panned out, let’s hope that Ocon gets a suitable car that compliments his talent. 
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we have a special guest – Esteban Ocon himself. The Frenchman rates his performances against Sergio Perez, he answers whether he has done enough to retain his seat at Force India for 2019 and of course, would he rather race in a slower car next year or take a break from the sport? 
The future of Formula 1 could definitely be Esteban Ocon (possibly in Mercedes) resuming his career-long rivalry against Charles Leclerc (possibly in Ferrari) and Max Verstappen (in Red Bull Racing). Let’s remember, these three lads fought hard while karting and in the junior series they competed in. Ocon tells us how he would relish fighting them and how it would be good for Formula 1. Tune in!
