Esteban Okon: I drive 200 laps on a simulator

This season, Esteban Okon arrives at the stages of Formula 1 as a backup Mercedes racer and works on a team simulator. The young Frenchman told how exactly the work on the simulator helps him to progress.

Esteban Okon: “I always considered work at Mercedes, the most successful team of our time, as an opportunity to deepen my knowledge. I can say that in 2019 I learned a lot. For example, sometimes I drove 200 laps on a simulator to play one or two tenths of a lap. This year I became better as a racer. “

Speaking about the prospects of returning to the race in 2020, Esteban expressed optimism: “I am in constant contact with the head of Mercedes Toto Wolff. We started negotiations very early on a contract for 2020. Cross your fingers, but I’m pretty sure that everything will work out. ”
