Esteban Ocon, a driver for Alpine, believes he can challenge Max Verstappen in a competitive vehicle.

Verstappen’s primary rival since childhood, the French driver, memorably defeated him in the F3 title before the latter advanced to the F1 class. Verstappen has now raced for Red Bull, a team that has won the championship, while Ocon competes for Alpine, a midfield rival.

However, the French driver did record his maiden Formula One victory in Hungary last year.

He believes that with similar equipment, he can compete with Verstappen. Ocon was questioned about whether he could compete with Verstappen in an interview with the Dutch magazine NOS. The Alpine driver responded:

“I am certain of that, therefore I must (be). If you don’t have confidence in yourself, you have no chance of succeeding in this sport. I have a contract that runs until the end of 2024, and this team will make every effort to go closer to the top.”

He went on: “I totally commit to it and have faith in it. I’m not making the drive here to compete, but every weekend, I become better. In addition, the distances between the teams will close over the next several years.”

The two drivers’ relationship was tumultuous when they were kids, but according to Ocon, things are much better today, and they are very respectful of one another.

Ocon stated: “We get along well together now and are very respectful of one another. I send him my warmest wishes. He is now just a tremendous talent. Max has a competitive nature and has been for a long time. Since I was little, I have known it. Ever since he started karting, he won every championship. After that, he drove quickly in every vehicle he got into.”

Esteban Ocon: “Max Verstappen’s world championships are highly earned.”

“His world crowns have earned them handsomely. I already believed that to be true last year, and he is having a strong season this year. I’m happy to see a driver I knew growing up succeeding in this way. Max is an excellent example of my generation. He is a legendary figure in this sport.”
