Reigning F3 Champion Esteban Ocon expressed his happiness after completing a 'mega' day of testing for Force India in Austria.

Mercedes-associated drive Ocon, who races in GP3, conducted his second outing of 2015 with Force India and clocked the second quickest time, behind Mercedes' Pascal Wehrlein.

Ocon was able to test some of the updates on Force India's VJM08 and the Frenchman noticed that the car had improved since his run last month in Spain.

"It’s been mega and thank you to Force India for the opportunity once again," he said.

"It was a shame that we had so much rain in the morning, but I’m happy that we were able to run late into the evening.

"The car was brilliant – very enjoyable to drive and I noticed how much it had improved compared to the last time I drove in Barcelona.

"On days like this you learn so much because mileage in a Formula One car is so precious and I was able to test in both the wet and the dry. I didn’t want the day to end because it was such a fantastic experience to work with the engineers and the whole team."
