THROUGH THE VISOR: Esteban Ocon recalls battle to the finish line with Bottas at the 2021 Saudi Arabian GP


On the latest instalment of Through the Visor, Esteban Ocon talks us through the “tough moment” in which he lost out on a podium place to Valtteri Bottas at the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Ocon had been running in third for much of the evening but came under pressure from the Mercedes of Bottas in the last few laps of the race. The Alpine driver did well to stay ahead of the Finn initially but lost out in the dying seconds of the race as Bottas overtook him in dramatic fashion as they took the chequered flag.
