He’s dominated in the virtual world, but now recently-crowned F1 Esports World Champion Brendon Leigh is being given the chance to showcase his racing skills in a real-world motorsport competition - and it could see him go head-to-head with some big names from F1.

The gaming ace, who saw off the competition from 19 of the world’s best sim racers to be crowned the inaugural F1 Esports champion in November’s Grand Final in Abu Dhabi, is set to take part in the first ever eRace of Champions in Saudi Arabia at the beginning of February. The new competition, which will run in parallel to the main Race of Champions event, will see Leigh face off against four other sim-racing specialists across a range of virtual and real-world challenges.

The driver with the best combined time will be crowned eROC champion and win a place in the main Race of Champions event, which last year saw Ferrari star Sebastian Vettel go head-to-head with the likes of fellow Grand Prix winners Felipe Massa and Juan Pablo Montoya.

“It was one of my first objectives - to get into real racing cars,” said Leigh. “I could never have imagined it would be at an event like this. I am excited but also nervous as it will be my first ever time in a real racing car. As F1 Esports champion, I'm aware that the spotlight will be on me.”

Now in its 30th year, the Race of Champions will take place on February 2-3 in Riyadh’s King Fahd International Stadium.

La Formula 1 ha appena annunciato la seconda stagione della ormai ben nota F1 Esports Series, ovvero il torneo esport ufficiale legato alla FIA Formula 1 che si disputerà ovviamente con l'F1 2017 Codemasters, unico titolo dotato di licenza. Contrariamente al 2017, quest'anno la prima parte del torneo sarà dedicata alla qualificazione per arrivare ad ottenere nel "Pro Draft" di Luglio un posto virtuale nei vari teams di Formula 1, per conto dei quali poi si andrà a disputare il torneo.

Il primo dei 4 eventi di qualifica partirà il 13 aprile, con la Mercedes di Bottas sulla pista di Shanghai ed accederanno al Draft (dopo i 4 eventi) solo i primi 40 migliori piloti. Nella seconda parte della stagione si svolgeranno poi i tre eventi dal vivo, per arrivare a decretare il campione esport F1, con un montepremi di ben 200mila dollari.

F1® Esports Series is about to start its second season

Formula 1®, the pinnacle of motorsport, today announced that the second season of the Formula 1 Esports Series will start on 13 April and will see the teams who participate in the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship set up their own esports teams to compete in the F1 Esports Series 2018.

This season will be split in two parts. In the first part, online racers will be offered the incredible opportunity to earn a place on the official esports driver line up for a number of F1 teams.

Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport, Red Bull Racing, Force India F1 Team, Williams, Renault Sport F1 Team, Haas F1 Team, McLaren, Toro Rosso and Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team will all be offering positions in their esports driver line ups as part of the series.

The new season of the F1® Esports Series will see the world’s top online racers battle it out on F1 2017, the official game of the FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, in an effort to win a place in the first ever Pro Draft in July. The Pro Draft is where the official Formula 1 teams involved in the F1 Esports Series will select their drivers for the second part of the season. Every team must select at least one of its drivers from the Pro Draft.

F1 2017 players on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC will be able to enter the first of the four qualifying events from 13 April. The first event sees them take control of Valtteri Bottas’ Mercedes in Shanghai hunting down a podium finish from sixth place with five laps remaining on a wet, but drying, track. The fastest ten players to complete the challenge on each platform will then race off in a live-streamed event final with the top three on each platform qualifying for the Pro Draft.

At the end of the four qualifying events and Wildcard stage, the Pro Draft will be held where the top 40 drivers in the world will be eligible for selection by the Formula 1 teams for their respective esports teams (Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport, Red Bull Racing, Hype Energy eForce India, Williams F1 Esports Team, Renault Sport Team Vitality, Haas F1 Esports Team, McLaren, Toro Rosso and Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team.)

The official esports drivers will then represent their teams in the second half of the season as they race in the three live events that will determine the 2018 F1 Esports Series Teams’ and Drivers’ World Champions with a prize fund of at least $200,000.

You can view the rules of the competition, along with the Terms & Conditions.

Prize Fund

The official esports drivers will then represent their teams in the second half of the season as they race in the three live events that will determine the 2018 F1 Esports Series Teams' and Drivers' World Champions with a prize fund of at least $200,000. 

Following the success of the inaugural competition last year, which saw Great Britain's Brendon Leigh crowned as the first ever champion in Abu Dhabi, Formula 1 has renewed its partnership with Codemasters and Gfinity for the 2018 F1 Esports Series. Also, DHL have joined the Series as an official sponsor as part of the extension of their partnership with Formula 1.

Julian Tan, Head of Digital Growth & F1 Esports at Formula 1 said: "It has always been our goal to get the teams involved as soon as possible and we are delighted that they have recognised the potential of the F1 Esports Series at such an early stage. Last year's series was a great success and demonstrated that there is a clear audience and interest in this innovative, exciting form of racing. We will continue to invest in the Esports Series as we feel it is a great way for us to interact and engage with a new audience." 

Frank Sagnier, CEO at Codemasters said: "Codemasters is extremely proud to be involved in the F1 Esports Series. The quality of the racing we saw during last year's series was spectacular and the integration of the teams for the coming season is going to take the competition and its promotion to the next level. We strongly believe that Esports is a platform that allows us to engage with a wide, diverse audience in addition to our traditional gaming community."

Neville Upton, CEO at Gfinity said: "We are excited to be retained by Formula 1 as the events partner. F1 and Codemasters maximised the true potential last year by fully integrating the F1 Esports Series into the final Grand Prix weekend in Abu Dhabi through both their linear TV partners and streaming platforms and we look forward to building on that success in season two with more events and broadcast opportunities."

Qualification begins

Event 1 now live on F1 2017

The first qualifying event of the 2018 F1® Esports Series is now live, giving you the chance to win a place in the amazing Pro Draft that will see real Formula 1® teams select the drivers that will represent them in the second half of the Esports Series season. To take part in qualifying first you need to register here and then start F1 2017 on PS4, Xbox One or PC. Then select Events from the Main Menu and you will see the first qualifying event.

So, how do you qualify?

The first scenario puts you in control of Valtteri Bottas’ Mercedes towards the end of the Chinese Grand Prix. In a repeat of last season’s race you find yourself in sixth place with five laps remaining and an eye on the podium. The track conditions are wet but drying and you are on the Inters chasing down the cars in front. Have you got what it takes to get past the Ferrari of Kimi Räikkönen and the squabbling Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo to claim a top three spot?

The fastest 10 players on each of the three platforms (PS4, Xbox, PC) to complete the challenge will then take part in a live-streamed Event Final (over 50% race distance) around the Shanghai international Circuit to determine the top three on each platform who will qualify for the Pro Draft in July. After Shanghai, the series moves onto the Baku City Circuit, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, and finally Circuit de Monaco. Driver assists are permitted during qualification but score modifiers will be applied. Good luck and we will see you on track!
