If you want to re-live the action from the first three rounds of the 2020 F1 Esports Pro Series, you can watch the live streams here below:
Round 1 and 2 (Bahrain and Vietnam):
Round 3 (China):
The first of the four events in the F1 Esports Pro Series, each featuring three races, will take place on Wednesday (Bahrain and Vietnam) and Thursday (China) to get a thrilling season underway before it then continues through to December. This trio of races will see drivers tackle the aforementioned Bahrain and China circuits as well as the brand new Vietnamese venue of Hanoi, which should have hosted its maiden Formula 1 race this year. Because of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the F1 Esports World Championship will see competitors take part remotely, as was the case in the exhibition races that were held alongside the Virtual Grand Prix Series that ran from March to June this year.
The first two day event features free practice, qualifying and the races will mark the arrival of our newest signing, Joni Törmälä, a Finnish sim racer, who was part of the Red Bull Racing Esports Team that won last year’s constructors’ championship. Alongside him will be Italy’s Manuel Biancolilla, whom we picked as part of our line-up in the Pro Draft back in August.
The championship uses Codemasters’ official F1 2020 game. The points system remains unchanged and is the same as in the real Formula 1 series, including a point for the fastest race lap. The biggest change is to the race length, which for the first time will be run over 35% of the laps of a real Grand Prix which will make strategy and tyre choice even more important. You can watch all the races live on this same page on our website or on our Facebook page: Wednesday 14 October and Thursday 15 October at 20:30 CEST.
The 2020 Pro Series is still in the starting blocks, but it is already looking ahead to next year. Players from all over the world can try to qualify for the 2021 edition, by getting through available levels on the F1 2020 esports area. The first one is already on line and runs until 31 October.
