Emerging from a new generation of drivers who make the step up to Formula One in their teenage years, Esteban Ocon entered the sport with the backing for Mercedes. From the junior stall of Silver Arrows' driver development programme, the Frenchman switched mid-season from DTM to the world of F1 but not before participating in a few test and practice sessions with Lotus, Force India and Renault, serving as a reserve for the French manufacturer in 2016. Racing in single-seaters since 2012, graduating from karts with a few titles in his bag, Ocon has been impressing consistently and is highly rated. He claimed the European F3 title in 2014 and the GP3 championship in 2015. Ocon stayed as a reserve driver for Renault for the first half of the 2016 season before Manor signed him up for the second half of 2016. He made his F1 debut in the Belgian GP. Although his results in the cash-strapped team didn't say much but he had got positive feedback during his short stay with the team. It was positive enough for him to progress to Force India.
