Toto Wolff has announced that Esteban Ocon will have fewer opportunities to compete in the race next year but will have more opportunities in Formula One.
After the news that Robert Kubica may be another driver of Williams, George Russell, the last door seems to be closed to Esteban Ocon, leaving no room for the grid in 2019 . It will almost be replaced by a new owner of French competitors: Force India, Lawrence Slore, Lance, William, but O'Conn will not leave without work in the next season.
Because Force India and Williams are using Mercedes resources, this could be Mercedes' influence on the reserve pilot's name. Toto Wolff backed it up in a brief statement to Silver Arrows pilots who could spend time on the track next year.
Okon will probably have a test driver next year.
"Next year there will be three test testers: there will be plenty of room for us, the Force India and even the Williams simulator," Wolff told Auto Motor und Sport.
They know that at least Ocon has a safe place for Mercedes by 2020, when they can drive Valtteri Bott for a French talent career. Esteban Ocon wants to talk about the news anyway because the whole world is talking about a clash with Verstappen. But I was more pleased if the contract was on the cover.
