Esteban Ocon says he should keep his Force India cockpit for the rest of the 2018 season.

Earlier, there was speculation Lance Stroll could replace the Frenchman during the season, and perhaps as quickly as the recent Italian or Singapore grands prix.

"As far as I know, I'll be with Force India until the end of the season," he said in Singapore.

Ocon is a Mercedes-contracted driver, and his boss Toto Wolff admitted in Singapore to being livid that no rival team bosses will sign him for 2019 for political reasons.
