Famin: Alpine F1 to Handle Ocon Incident ‘Privately’

26/05/2024

Esteban Ocon apologized for the Monaco incident. Alpine F1 director Bruno Famin assures the matter will be handled internally to maintain team harmony.

In the aftermath, Esteban Ocon took the time to apologize to Pierre Gasly and the Alpine F1 team for the collision in Monaco, which could have been costly if not for a red flag due to another incident.

Bruno Famin, the team’s director, also sought to defuse the situation following his comments to Canal+ suggesting the team might “have to take drastic measures,” implying severe sanctions for Ocon. He did, however, express satisfaction with the point scored by Gasly.

“Today’s result was largely determined by yesterday’s qualifying, and we ended up with a point for us. The feeling is mixed. We probably didn’t maximize our performance on Saturday, but today’s outcome is clearly positive considering where we were on Friday. As a team, we will review and handle the incident between our two cars privately. We must avoid situations that could compromise the team.”

Regarding Ocon and his apologies, he conveyed the following message:

“I made a mistake today, so I apologize for the incident and the retirement to the entire team. Ultimately, the team finished in the points as we planned, and that is the most important thing for our ambitions.”

“My car was too damaged to continue despite all the efforts made during the race stoppage. We will analyze everything collectively to come back stronger together. We give everything we have to score points. Mistakes happen, but we must move forward.”
