Esteban Ocon is a French F1 driver who first came onto the scene through the Mercedes driving programme. The Frenchman has had several ups and downs in his career and has been a part of several franchises which include Manor, Force India, Mercedes, Renault and, currently, Alpine.
Now reaching a more mature age, it seems Ocon is reaching his full potential as well, for in 2021 he won his maiden F1 race at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Going into the 2022 season, Ocon will look to add to his two podiums and one race win and look to fulfil his potential.
