Abiteboul defends Ocon amid 2021 rumours

Esteban Ocon “should not be ashamed” of his performance at Renault so far in 2020. That is the view of his boss Cyril Abiteboul, amid speculation the team might be looking at signing another French driver for 2021 – Monza winner Pierre Gasly. Ocon, who sat out 2019 after being dropped by Force India, has scored 36 points so far this year, compared to Nurburgring podium-getter Daniel Ricciardo’s 78. “If you include the points that he lost due to reliability, he would still be behind Daniel, but pretty close actually. He’s had good teammates and Perez in particular is strong, but I think Daniel is stronger.”.
