Ocon will join Daniel Ricciardo at Renault after a year on the sidelines, having been forced out of his seat at Force India following the team’s takeover by Lawrence Stroll over the summer of 2018.

Ocon lost his Force India seat at the end of 2018 in the aftermath of the Lawrence Stroll-led buyout and was unable to find a drive elsewhere.

Having been part of Mercedes’ junior scheme since 2015 he sought refuge as the manufacturer’s reserve driver while trying to land a drive for 2020. He and his management team succeeded and he has joined Renault on a two-year deal, severing ties with Mercedes, to link up with Daniel Ricciardo.

« First and foremost, I am very proud to become a Renault driver,» said Ocon who signed a multi-year deal with Renault, a team for which he tested in 2014 and 2016.

« I have grown up at Enstone, starting with Lotus in 2010 and then with Renault. I am very attached to this team and everyone who works there; they are the ones who opened the doors of top level motorsport for me.»

« Secondly, I am pleased that a team with big ambitions has entrusted me with the opportunity to once again demonstrate my skills at the highest level of F1. It is a responsibility I take very seriously.»

« The confidence they have in me to help the progression of the team is a very positive pressure and I look forward to giving the best of myself.»
