Since this season, Ferrari is participating, making the F1 teams grid complete.
The arrival of the Ferrari eSports team is expected to make the F1 Esports championship even more attractive and motivate new simracers to join This year’s F1 Esports has expected more than 100,000 people to join the competiton. The main prize was increased from $200,000 to a very tempting $500,000. The sim racers who will compete in the championship will be selected in the Pro Draft this July.
Training is the foundation of success
Success in the F1 Esports championship is tempting because of 2 things: a) of the grand prizes, b) as well because of the chance to get into a real Formula 1 team. Sim racers will compete in professional racing simulators that are very close to the real Formula 1 car. If the racing driver suceeds in the professional sim racing simulator, there is a great chance he will do well in a real race car (or Formula car).
