Esteban Ocon says that his Renault Formula 1 team mate Daniel Ricciardo has been “blessed” in 2020 after losing out to the Australian once again in qualifying in Bahrain.
Ricciardo has had the upper hand on one-lap pace all season, and at Sakhir he edged out Ocon by just 0.002s as the pair earned sixth and seventh places on the grid.
Ocon had been ahead after the first round of laps in Q3, but ultimately fell behind after Ricciardo’s final run.
The French driver has only outqualified Ricciardo once in 2020, at July’s Styrian Grand Prix.
