18 not out and counting for Esteban Ocon

The eye-catching deep reds, greens, yellows and of course the Force India car looking pretty in pink make this a vibrant picture of the day from last weekend's Austrian Grand Prix.

Esteban Ocon ended the race in eighth place, which is his third points finish in succession. In fact, the 20-year-old Frenchman has only been out of the points once all season - when a puncture cost him dear in Monaco.

Even more remarkably, Ocon has now reached the chequered flag in every single one of the 18 races that he's started since making his Formula 1 debut with Manor in Belgium last year.

That's quite the impressive record. It's no wonder that his team mate Sergio Perez looks like he's starting to feel the pressure from the up-and-coming racer. A future world champion in the making? We wouldn't bet against it...
