F1 teams have picked their sim racers for the F1 Esports Series

22w ago


The F1 Esports Series Pro Draft is over and the nine current F1 teams have chosen their sim racers to compete in the second season of the series.

From over 60,000 entries, the pool was whittled down to just 40 gamers who fought for the right to represent the likes of Haas, Red Bull and McLaren through a series of time trials.

Some of the F1 teams have already recruited sim racers meaning that they only picked single sim racers from the Pro Draft, while other teams filled their boots by signing up three participants from the competition.

The picks from the event were as follows:

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport

Daniel Bereznay

Red Bull Racing eSports

Joni Tormala, Graham Carroll

Renault Sport Team Vitality

Sven Zurner, Kimmy Larsson, James Doherty

Haas F1

Martin Stefanko, Michal Smidl

Hype Energy eForce India

Fabrizio Donoso Delgado

McLaren Shadow

Olli Pahkala

Toro Rosso

Cem Bolukbasi, Patrick Holzmann


Salih Saltunc, Allert van der Wal, Sonuc Saltunc

Williams eSports

Tino Naukkarinen

The teams will compete later this year in a three-race championship on F1 2018, fighting for the $200,000 prize fund on offer. We imagine that the series will soon expand to a full racing season that coincides with the proper F1 circuit, but it looks like we'll be waiting until 2019 for that.
