Ocon to make F1 press conference debut


As if he doesn't have enough to deal with, Esteban Ocon, who makes his F1 race debut with Manor this weekend, is also scheduled to attend Thursday's official FIA driver press conference.

The French youngster, who is replacing Rio Haryanto at the Banbury-based team, will join world champions Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, as well as Romain Grosjean, Daniil Kvyat and Max Verstappen.

This weekend's event marks the 60th running of the Belgian Grand Prix and the 48th to be held at Spa-Francorchamps.

World championship leader Lewis Hamilton, who heads to Spa with a 19 point lead, could also score his 50th ever Grand Prix win if he claims victory on Sunday.

Friday's team principals press conference sees Eric Boullier joined by Robert Fernley, Christian Horner, Monisha Kaltenborn, Fred Vasseur and Claire Williams.
