The Alpine driver confided in after his fifth place obtained at the Grand Prix of Qatar.
Esteban Ocon (Alpine), 5th: « We don’t have the most competitive car on the grid, but by working hard, because I think we work a lot more than everyone else, we achieve this kind of performance. We did things differently this week, we found things that allowed us to take a step forward, improve and have a more efficient car. We still hope for other surprises in Jeddah (in Saudi Arabia on December 4, editor’s note). It will be another new circuit, like in Qatar, and here we learned more quickly than the others, which we hope to repeat in Jeddah.« .
