Esteban Ocon was originally being primed to take a seat at Mercedes before he joined Renault in 2020.
Renault, now named Alpine, were very clear in their statement that Mercedes would have no say on his career during his two-year contract with the French team.
But the 24-year-old is still managed by Mercedes and remains a favourite of Toto Wolff’s.
Any interest in Ocon may well depend on how he performs this season having struggled in his debut season with Renault but he has a new opportunity in 2021 to compete against two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso.
