Ocon given 2020 ‘guarantee’
Some intriguing comments from Mercedes boss Toto Wolff about Esteban Ocon’s F1 future last night.

“One thing I can
guarantee to you is that he’s going to be in a good car in 2020 because there
are many teams out there who have an interest in Esteban.”

What chance that “good car” being a 2020 Mercedes?

“They say only fools are optimists and in July I was really

“It’s not our call. Williams need
