Will Esteban Ocon be in a position to upset Daniel Ricciardo's possible move to Mercedes for 2019? For that to happen, Ocon will need to beat Force India veteran and team-mate Sergio Perez - expect this to be a tough fight. As for Mercedes, they will need to show Red Bull-style guts to promote their young driver to the works team this early in his Formula 1 career.
In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), we have Esteban Ocon join us on our fun show. We speak to the Frenchman about his views on Force India, his areas of improvement for 2018 and how he plans to counter the Sergio Perez challenge.
