Title triumph on the penultimate race weekend.
Esteban Ocon (18, Prema Powerteam) is the new FIA Formula 3 European Champion. The French youngster wrapped up the title on the penultimate race weekend of the season at Imola driving a Mercedes-Benz-powered car. Having now amassed 454 championship points, he can no longer be caught in the three remaining races to be contested during the final weekend of the 2014 season at Hockenheim (18th/19th October).
In his debut FIA Formula 3 Championship campaign, Ocon has so far notched up nine wins, 15 pole positions and seven fastest race laps. In the 30 races contested to date, he has made 21 podium appearances.
