Esteban Ocon to split Mercedes F1 role between track and simulator

Esteban Ocon has confirmed he will split his time between Mercedes’ simulator and supporting the team at the race track through the 2019 Formula 1 season.
Mercedes has described Ocon’s 2019 as being a “gap year” before he returns to racing full-time next year, but the Frenchman has explained how he will still be kept busy in his new role supporting Mercedes race drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
Ocon will work in tandem with ex-McLaren F1 driver Stoffel Vandoorne, who will also undertake simulator commitments for Mercedes through 2019 while racing in Formula E for the affiliated HWA team.
