Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

New Force In­dia man Este­ban Ocon will not be avail­able to be called back to drive for Mercedes this year, should the Sil­ver Ar­rows re­quire an­other driver. Ocon, who is part of the Mercedes Ju­nior Pro­gramme, has agreed a two-year deal with Force In­dia. When asked if Force In­dia would al­low Ocon to go back to drive for Mercedes if needed, deputy team prin­ci­pal, Bob Fern­ley, said: “Ab­so­lutely not. He’s a Force In­dia driver for two years, and that’s it. He can’t sub­sti­tute one of their driv­ers, but if they were ask­ing him to test, I’d be quite pleased to let him do that.”
