Esteban Ocon

I felt really comfortable in the car today. We were able to do 139 laps and finished all of our planned programmes. We started the day with some aerodynamic tests which went well. Then, in the afternoon, I was able to improve my driving with every lap – especially using the soft tyres. I am really thankful for the opportunity the team have given. It’s really allowed me to learn a lot.
