Esteban Ocon to replace Nico Hulkenberg at Renault for 2020 F1 season

Esteban Ocon will join Renault for 2020, returning to the sport after a year on the sidelines.
Ocon was initially planning to join Renault for this season, only for the team to renege on an agreement to sign him when Ricciardo indicated he was keen to leave Red Bull and join the French car company.
That led to some bad feeling between Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff and Renault F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul, but Wolff had pledged to find Ocon a seat in F1 in 2020 and Renault was the best option.
