Esteban Ocon Blasts Fernando Alonso Over Workload Balance at Alpine

Esteban Ocon made it abundantly clear during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix how he feels about Fernando Alonso leaving Alpine for Aston Martin in 2023.

When speaking with French media that weekend, the Frenchman said, per ESPN, “It's good that he's going to Aston Martin and that we're going our own way. Honestly, the work was 98% on my back and 2% on his. I was overworked. I did all the development on the simulator, the marketing trips.”

Tension within the Alpine camp and between the former teammates became evident as the season started wrapping up.
