Ocon to be Mercedes F1 reserve driver in 2019

Esteban Ocon will carry out reserve and development driver roles for the Mercedes F1 team in 2019, Toto Wolff has confirmed.
Ocon looks set for a year on the F1 sidelines next season with Lance Stroll expected to take his Force India seat, while attempts to find full-time drives at Renault, McLaren, and Williams all failed to come off.
Mercedes has now announced Ocon will take on a non-racing role with the German manufacturer, with team boss Toto Wolff confirming a reserve and development position for the Frenchman in 2019.
