Formula 1 star Esteban Ocon was spotted at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with his new girlfriend, Flavy Barla. The couple made their first public appearance together at the Yas Marina Circuit over the weekend.
This comes just months after Ocon's split from Italian model Elena Berri. Ocon and Barla were seen walking around the paddock arm in arm, with Barla also supporting Ocon from the garage as he prepared for testing.
Flavy Barla, a medical student who won Miss Cote d'Azur last year, has gained quite a following on Instagram with 81,600 followers. Her feed showcases a mix of glamorous snaps and behind-the-scenes shots from her studies.
Ocon had been dating Elena Berri for five years before their split earlier this year. Berri, known for her racy Instagram snaps, was often praised by fans as the "prettiest girl ever."
Esteban Ocon finished 12th in the 2023 Drivers' Championship after the season finale in Abu Dhabi. His standout moment came in Monaco, where he claimed his first podium finish since 2021. He is set to continue racing for Alpine in the upcoming F1 season.
