Auto Hebdo are running a cover story (above) in their latest edition with Esteban Ocon dressed in a Renault race suit with the title: Marriage of Reason.

The report, in France’s leading motoring magazine, confirming that the deal is done for the Mercedes reserve driver to suit up for the French team next year alongside Daniel Ricciardo which leaves Nico Hulkenberg without a seat.

The cover also claims: The Frenchman makes a return to F1 in 2020 in place of Nico Hulkenberg.

The Ocon decision was key to the Silly Season puzzle and now also confirms that Mercedes have opted to retain the successful partnership between Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, the Finn was the logical choice all along.

With the Ocon question settled, Hulkenberg is the obvious loser in the deal. The German’s best of option of a decent ride next year in the top flight would then be with Haas where Romain Grosjean om shaly as is Kevin Magnussen to a lesser extent.

Report in progress…
