Just how well is Esteban Ocon driving at the moment? 'Best of the rest' once again, the Frenchman also set a new F1 record after another fantastic display.
Matched alongside a dependable and quick driver at Force India, Ocon continued his recent advantage over his team-mate in Austin. The youngster has now finished ahead of Sergio Perez in four of the six races since the summer break, while he out-qualified the Mexican for the third successive Saturday. And that was done while feeling under the weather with a potential migraine.
After holding off Perez while saving fuel in the race, Ocon then expertly kept Carlos Sainz's Renault at bay in what will surely be a fight higher up the grid in the future.
Ocon has now eclipsed Max Chilton's record for most consecutive finishes after his F1 debut with 26 - most of which have been while battling for points. Consistent. Mature. Just superb.
