Given a sniff of a victory after an opening-lap crash wiped out several of the fancied runners, Ocon inherited the lead on lap five and stayed there for 65 laps, resisting the race-long pressure being piled on him by four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel. In his biggest moment, Ocon didn't flinch – and raised his stock in the process.
Ocon's career looked in strife when he was ousted by Racing Point for Lance Stroll at the end of 2018; now, with podiums on his CV and as the junior partner alongside Fernando Alonso as a Frenchman at a French team, his future looks predictable and bright.
