Prema Powerteam is glad to announce the agreement reached with Esteban Ocon for the upcoming Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix. The traditional race on the Eastern streetcourse has always been one of the most competitive and exciting of the season, as it features young drivers approaching an old-style venue. Ocon, a Frenchman born on September 17th 1996, is among the front runners in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0. He is also part of the Lotus Formula 1 Junior Team.
“We are happy to have Esteban Ocon in our line-up. He's a young racer who drove with us in Formula 3 testing in the last weeks at Imola and he left us quite favourably impressed. The race at Macau will be a tough test for him but we'll try to assist him in at the top of our possibilities”.
"I am very happy and proud to have the opportunity to do the Macau GP with Prema Powerteam. It's a huge proof of trust from Lotus F1 Junior Team and René Rosin. I will have a lot to learn during this week but as always I'll do my best to score the best possible result".
