Alpine driver Esteban Ocon has mixed emotions about this season. Although there were many great things this season, Ocon remembers the bad ones as well. Consistency was the biggest problem for his team. There were numerous instances where they could have avoided and achieved a favorable outcome, yet it's evident that luck was sometimes necessary, alongside crucial quality at important moments.

"No, I think there have been some very good things, some very good opportunities that we took, but the consistency overall hasn't been there. We had too many DNFs. That has cost us. I think it's nine DNFs almost in total, probably the most of any drivers.

If you remove the issue we have with the gearbox in Singapore, the contact with Oscar in Austin, we could have been in the top 10 in the championship, so that's where it's really a bit of a wasted opportunity. ”- Esteban Ocon said, as quoted by crash.net!

He's getting back into training on December 17. He's talked about what he's up to afterward, and it's clear he's aiming high for the future. Right now, all Ocon is thinking about is making next season a success.

Seems like he's maximally-focused and won't let anything stop him "I think 17th of December, that's when I will restart training. So, that's until Christmas. Almost a week. Then from 2nd of Jan until the first test, I will be back fully into training camp.

I'm going to be doing it the way I was doing in 2022, which is no life, flat out, only racing. We've been doing a lot of different things and activations outside the track this year. That's going to change next year. Back to war mode and fully focused on the racing side.

" The phenomenal F1 driver wants to use the moments to be with his family. “But yeah, as I said, 17th of December, before that there's going to be the Christmas party of the team. There's going to be some simulator work, the test going on.

I'm going to be able to have a couple of days seeing my family that I haven't seen for a while. We're going to have some good times with friends as well”.
