Esteban Ocon says he would be happy if the Alpine F1 Team extended their contract with F1 legend Fernando Alonso.
Currently, the Alpine F1 Team is reportedly worried about whether to retain 40-year-old Fernando Alonso in 2023 or give F2 champion and promising rookie Oscar Piastri a chance to make his debut. ing.
At the F1 Canadian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso, who was angry at the disagreement during the race, was seen repeatedly hitting the steering wheel, and there were signs of disagreement between Alonso and Alpine F1 Team leaders.
But as far as Fernando Alonso’s current teammate Esteban Ocon is concerned, it sounds happy to have two F1 World Champions in another garage.
“It’s great to be Fernando’s teammate,” Esteban Ocon told DAZN.
“When he joined the team, many were telling me that it would be very difficult, but not all of that is really completely true.”
“I think we have a good pairing and I really enjoy working with him.”
“Of course, Fernando doesn’t have to prove anything anymore. If he wants to continue in F1, he’ll stay. He’s still motivated and always a lion.”
Regarding his personal goals for the rest of the 2022 season, Esteban Ocon admitted that he was on the podium and said, “If there is a win, it will be a great season.”
“I want to win again,” repeated Esteban Ocon.
“But realistically, we’re not in that position. If we get the podium, it’s like a win for us.”
“In the past they have beaten Fernando and are at that level. We can get it done. I believe in this project and that’s why we signed a multi-year contract.”
