Esteban Ocon is starting the week of racing at Zandvoort on the right foot, after a fine comeback from sixteenth place on the grid to seventh at Spa-Francorchamps.
The Frenchman is hoping to get the same number of points this weekend, in what will be his second Dutch Grand Prix in Formula 1.
Are you satisfied with the way the Grand Prix in Spa went?
“Spa was one of our best weekends as a team. I’m happy with the balance of the car and thank the team for giving us a car that flew all weekend. Saturday’s qualifying session was excellent and the race went off without a hitch despite the engine penalty, and we picked up big points by getting both our cars into the top 10. Spa is always a very special place and I’m very happy to know that we will be back next year. In the end, we left Belgium very satisfied, but now we are focused on the next race and need to make sure, going into the Dutch Grand Prix, that we keep this momentum going. »
What memories do you have of Zandvoort and do you enjoy driving there?
“It’s great to be back on such a historic circuit as Zandvoort. The discipline returned to the Netherlands last year and I also raced there in the DTM in 2016. So I know the circuit and enjoy it. The contrast between Zandvoort and Spa is huge. We go from a long and flowing route to a much shorter and winding track. It’s a fun, very hilly and fast circuit that requires a lot of concentration and commitment. The setting is also quite spectacular, being right on the beach yet very close to Amsterdam, a fun and vibrant city to visit. And the local fans are giving us a great show, the atmosphere promises to be electric all weekend. »
Is there a part of the circuit you can’t wait to ride again?
“The circuit is interesting as a whole but maybe the banking, at the end of the lap, which is always fun. It’s unlike any other corner, which is pretty cool. It’s a narrow track which is not necessarily conducive to overtaking, so our position on the starting grid will be very important this weekend. Overall, our goal remains the same. Having a good weekend and continuing to collect points in order to further consolidate our fourth place in the championship. »
