Esteban Ocon wasn’t competing last season but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an exhausting year for the then-Mercedes reserve driver.
Racing from simulator to the track, Ocon spent a large part of last season travelling in order to fulfill all his commitments.
It was, quite simply, an exhausting year.
“I mean, the season I had was very very demanding,” he told Autosport.
“I was not sleeping for two days [at a time], it was quite crazy – the amount of travel I was doing, and the amount of hours I was doing in the simulator and then travelling to track, doing stuff for Mercedes.
