Esteban Ocon: Filming on Netflix helped me

Three years ago, Liberty Media gave Netflix permission to shoot the Formula 1 series Drive to Survive. Esteban Ocon said that at one time, participation in the filming helped him return to the starting grid after missing the season.

Esteban Ocon: “A lot has changed in sports – it has become more transparent and open to a wider audience. If, as a result, more interest began to be shown in Formula 1, then it was worth it.

Netflix started filming Drive to Survive when I was a backup pilot for Mercedes. Thanks to the show, I was in the spotlight. I don’t want to say that I was invited to Renault due to my participation in Drive to Survive, but it definitely helped me.

As for the last season, it should not be judged by results. The main thing is that we have made progress, although it took a long time to find the causes of the problems.

The season turned out to be busy due to the hiatus associated with the pandemic. It was important to relax with my family – I haven’t seen them for a year. I spent part of the holidays in Normandy, where my parents live, then I did different things.

I train most of the off-season – this is the only time I can work on my fitness. There is little free time between races during the season, so I try to just maintain the physical condition that I achieved in the offseason. “
