The Ballon d’Or is a legendary football award given to the best player of the year, and the 2022 award was presented in style thanks to Alpine.
Esteban Ocon drove an Alpine show car, based on the 2012 Lotus, in Paris with the famous trophy placed on the airbox before taking the Ballon d’Or into the event itself.

Fernando Alonso appeared at the awards last year but Estie Bestie’s future teammate Pierre Gasly was there sitting next to his countryman despite all the talk that the two of them don’t get along!
And… @OconEsteban is not the only one who joined! @PierreGASLY @Laurent_Rossi are also here for the #BallonDor ceremony.@francefootball pic.twitter.com/td7L5mapSK
The French award delivered in a French F1 car by a French driver was perhaps fittingly one by France’s Karim Benzema 👏
Nice work Estie!
