The last Hungarian GP stood out for several reasons. One of them was the aggressive defense of Stephen Ocon compared to Fernando Alonso.
In fact, the Asturian pilot said on the radio that he had never seen a defense like his partner’s Stephen Ocon.
Now the French Alpine F1 driver spoke about saying that “That’s racing”possibly he said that to not talk about it,
“We put ourselves in a difficult position when the stop was delayed, we entered a little later. The times with the new tire were good and we should have started with a good lead,” said Ocon.
“After the stop, I tried to defend myself, not necessarily from Fernandobut of all those behind him, “admits Esteban Ocon, although even so Ricciardo would pass them both later.
Of course, with a hard tire at a very low temperature, it was very difficult to defend myself. For that reason, it was difficult to make it work.
In the race, due to the low temperatures on the track, the drive did not work properly until after many laps.
«We need a lot of time to work the hard tire and be fast. I was having a hard time with the traction and the rear compared to other cars. The strategy was probably not the best and neither were the calls to enter the pits »explains the French.
«We add good points before the summer break and that is always positive«, affirms Esteban Ocon being positive.
“It could have been a different story with another idea, but in the end we scored points with both cars”, concludes the Frenchman with the points obtained in the last GP.
It seems with these statements that Esteban Ocon does not want to talk much about what happened with Fernando Alonso in Budapest.
Do you agree with the words of the Alpine pilot?
