Winner of his first Formula 1 Grand Prix this Sunday in Hungary, at the wheel of the Alpine, Frenchman Esteban Ocon struggled to find his words when commenting on his incredible performance.
" What moment !
What moment !
I feel so good !, he smiled at the microphone of Canal +, euphoric.
We had some difficult times but we managed to overcome that with the team.
His teammate, the two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, played a big role in the Frenchman's victory, long containing the assaults of Lewis Hamilton and thus preventing the Briton from climbing higher than third place.
" What to say ?
Fernando [Alonso] did a big job, the victory is his too.
Thanks to him !, continued Ocon.
It is a team effort.
I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who trusted me through tough times.
Vettel put a lot of pressure on me, but I managed to hold on.
It's amazing to work with Alonso, we form a great duo, we push the team to make improvements on the car.
I very much appreciate our collaboration.
Tomorrow morning, I will have a beautiful Monday.
