Formula 1: Esteban Ocon to be Mercedes reserve and test driver in 2019

Ocon is a Mercedes young driver and Mercedes F1 boss Toto said he would become part of the team as they sought a permanent seat for him in 2020.
Ocon could be promoted to a seat at the works Mercedes team in 2020 as a replacement for Valtteri Bottas as Lewis Hamilton’s team-mate but the world champions insist no decision on that will be made until during next season.
If Mercedes does not choose to promote Ocon, Wolff will try to find him a seat elsewhere.
