And it has nothing to do with Ocon being French .... Not sure why they just don't say that instead of say BS like that. Whatever... I'm sure for those that matter they know Hulk's value.

Does anyone else see the irony in Prost making these statements?

https://www.grandprix.com/news/hulkenbe ... prost.html
Renault ousted Nico Hulkenberg because he is too "pessimistic" and "negative".

That is the claim of Renault advisor and F1 legend Alain Prost, as he explained why the French works team has instead signed up fellow Frenchman Esteban Ocon for 2020.
"We don't want pessimistic drivers, which is why we opted for Ocon," Prost told Sky Italia.
There is no Sky italia piece about this, its just some made up tabloid stuff.
Alot of other not so high regarded sites just ran with it..

Ocon + Gasly would be a fine lineup indeed. :) Would save Renault Sport F1 plenty on driver salaries, that could be better spent on car development.

If Renault reserve driver Sirotkin still has a budget, he would also be an excellent choice to partner Ocon.

Think of the savings. =D>
