Jere commented on the post, Ocon “getting closer” to Ricciardo after settling in at Renault

In the round-up: Esteban Ocon says that, after needing time to settle in and “understand” Renault, the closing gap to Daniel Ricciardo shows that he and the team are working together better.

What they say

Having returned to Formula 1 this season, after a year in the Mercedes reserve role, Ocon says his form improving relative to team mate Ricciardo shows that he and the team are making the right choices:

I’m happy that recently I’ve been getting closer to Daniel. It shows that we’re working better. We are getting closer to where I think I should be and that’s good.

It’s a good sign for the rest of the season. It took me a bit more time to settle in the team and to work [in a] way that we understand each other. And recently it’s been it’s been working well. So I think we have to keep going on that way.
