BWT Alpine F1 Team set to part ways with Esteban Ocon

June 3, 2024

French Formula One team Alpine have announced that they have mutually agreed to part ways with their driver Esteban Ocon at the end of the ongoing Formula One season.

The decision comes after a controversial Monaco Grand Prix, where Ocon crashed into his teammate, Pierre Gasly, before retiring from the race. 

Ocon, who joined the team in 2020 during their Renault days, will have spent five years with the team come the end of this season. He has one win to his name along with three podiums during his time at Alpine. His only career win came in Hungary in 2021.

On his departure from Alpine, Esteban Ocon commented:

It’s been a significant period of my life to be racing at this team in Formula 1. While I’ve been here for five years as a full-time racing driver, my professional career started at Enstone back when I was a teenager, so it will always be a special place for me. We have had some great moments together, some tough moments as well, and I am certainly grateful to everyone at the team for these memorable times. I will announce my plans very soon but, in the meantime, my full focus is on delivering on track for this team and having a successful remainder of the season.

Bruno Famin, Alpine Team Principal, said:

We would like to firstly thank Esteban for his commitment to the team for the past five years. During his time, we have celebrated some fantastic moments together, the best of which coming at the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix with a memorable race win. We still have 16 races to complete in 2024 together with a clear objective: to continue to work tirelessly as a team to push for the best on-track results. We wish Esteban the very best for the next chapter of his driving career when that moment comes.
