Esteban Ocon is a French racing driver, who would of competed for Mücke Motorsport at the final round in Hockenheim. But when Daniel Juncadella recovered from being ill, he was dropped after FP1. Yet, when Pascal Wehrlein joined the Manor Racing F1 team, Ocon filled his vacant seat with Mercedes for 2016
Following the familiar path of karting, Ocon débuted in a racing car in 2012, joining the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup for the season. After two seasons, Ocon entered the FIA European Formula 3 Championship in 2014, and would go on to win the series, earning him a place with the Mercedes Young Driver Programme and a testing role with the Lotus F1 Team. 2015 saw him progress into the GP3 Series, which would also end in glory for the Frenchman, and saw him join the new Renault Sport F1 Team as a reserve driver.
Ocon became the latest man to step up to the DTM with the Mercedes Young Driver Programme, when he moved up from being their reserve driver for 2015. In replacing Pascal Wehrlein, Ocon would be the only débutante in 2016, driving with HWA AG.
