the presentation of The team Renault Sport F1 Team has had several players. One has been the RS16, or better said, the car that has worn the ‘new colours’ of the team, although neither is the new car, nor are the tones final. Another was Kevin Magnussen, the brand new signing of Renault Sport that has been left out of the Formula 1 Pastor Maldonado. The latter has been the another addition to the team. Esteban Ocon will be third driver for Renault F1, a condition that is not associated to the ‘Renault Sport Academy’, since it remains covered by the Program of Young Pilots Mercedes.
During the presentation ceremony held in Paris, Esteban Ocon has been shown to be very glad of his signing for Renault F1: “I Am delighted to be part of the return of Renault as a team in Formula 1, “. Even so, the French rider has had time to remark on your situation: “at The end of last year, I teamed up long term to the junior program of Mercedes and now I am very proud to be able to help Renault Sport F1 Team this year. Not only as a French rider on a French team, but also as a pilot that can improve on the base that I received with the guys from Enstone”.

Enstone is an important part of the path of Esteban Ocon: “A
part of my heart is in that corner of the English countryside. I grew up there
and my first visit to Enstone when I was 13 years old and was in
karting. I Was part of the family of Enstone in the lower categories
until 2014“. However, the young frenchman looks with the greatest interest
the future: “I Want to learn as much as you can and get a better grasp as a
sponge. I must be ready to jump in the car at any time and
to help the team in everything I can. This is an opportunity
amazing and I want to be ready to take the next step“.
arrival of Esteban Ocon to the Renault team does not mean your situation
for the season 2016 change in relation to a program in another category: “My
the race is managed by Mercedes since the end of 2014. After
to win the GP3 Series I became a pilot Mercedes to the full. Have
been they who have chosen my new role as third driver
Renault Sport Formula 1 Team. There are some opportunities to compete in
other categories this year, but nothing has been decided yet“.
