Formula 1's Bahrain Virtual Grand Prix has wrapped up, with Chinese racing driver Guanyu Zhou coming in first place in what was an unprecedented event for the sport of racing.
So as La Liga's footballers finish up a weekend of Federation Internationale de Football Association 20, the organisers of Formula 1 have announced the F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series, which will see "a number of current F1 drivers" playing Codemasters' official F1 2019 game on PC and having it broadcast worldwide. This way, everyone will have cars with fixed settings, reduced damage, anti-lock brakes and optional traction control for those less familiar with the game.
Driving on Sunday were current and ex-F1-pros such as Lando Norris, Nicholas Latifi, Nico Hulkenberg, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson - as well as celebs like Olympic cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy, golfer Ian Poulter and singer-songwriter Liam Payne.
John Clarke, Chief Executive Officer, Gfinity said: "We are excited to be involved in the delivery of the F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series".
