F1 Esports Pro Draft
Confermati i qualificati
·        66,000 giocatori hanno combattutto per conquistarsi la qualificazione
·        I team di Formula 1 scelgono i loro piloti ufficiali

La Formula 1®, l'apice del motorsport, ha confermato oggi i 40 piloti online che si sono qualificati per la prossima tappa della serie F1 Esports: Pro Draft. Lunedì 9 luglio a Londra, i rappresentanti dei nove team di F1 che parteciperanno alla serie F1 Esports 2018 utilizzeranno il Pro Draft per selezionare i piloti che si uniranno ai loro team esport per competere come professionisti nell'ultima parte della stagione.

Nel corso dei quattro round di qualificazione online, 66.000 giocatori hanno combattuto per conquistare un posto per il Pro Draft, completando 1,1 milioni di giri. Hanno gareggiato 111 territori (dalla A per l'Albania alla Z per lo Zimbabwe, in F1 2017 - il gioco ufficiale della FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ™, su PlayStation®4, Xbox One inclusa Xbox One X e PC - con la Gran Bretagna in testa con il 23% dei giocatori, seguita dagli Stati Uniti (16%) e dalla Germania (13%).

Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport, Red Bull Racing, Hype Energy eForce India F1 Esports Team, Williams, Renault Sport Team Vitality, Haas F1 Esports Team, McLaren, Toro Rosso Esports Team e Sauber F1 Team, offriranno tutte delle posizioni nei loro team. Ogni squadra deve selezionare almeno uno dei suoi piloti dal Pro Draft.

F1 Esports Pro Draft vedrà i giocatori viaggiare da 15 paesi - tra cui il Regno Unito, il Cile, la Germania e la Finlandia - fino alla storica Silverstone in vista del Formula 1 2018 Rolex British Grand Prix. Lì inizieranno una serie di test, valutazioni e interviste con i team per dimostrare perché dovrebbero essere selezionati. Il Pro Draft sarà trasmesso online su Facebook e sarà anche mostrato in diretta in televisione.

Una volta selezionati, i piloti ufficiali dell’esports rappresenteranno la loro vera squadra durante la stagione mentre si sfideranno nei tre eventi live che determineranno i camptioni mondiali dell’F1 Esports Series Team’s and Drivers’. Ci sarà un montepremi di $ 200.000 assegnato alle squadre in base alle loro posizioni nelle classifiche.
Dei 40 giocatori confermati per il Pro Draft, 36 di essi hanno superato la fase di Open Qualification: quattro eventi online del gioco di F1 2017 seguiti da quattro serie di gare su ciascuna delle tre piattaforme. I più veloci nove giocatori su PS4, Xbox e PC si sono tutti qualificati. Due ulteriori giocatori si sono qualificati attraverso la Online Qualification Wildcard e saranno raggiunti da Fabrizio Donoso Delgrado e Sven Zürner, che si sono entrambi qualificati grazie alla competizione dello scorso anno rispettivamente al secondo e al terzo posto.

La F1 Esports Series vede una parterneship con Codemasters, lo sviluppatore e publisher del gioco ufficiale del franchise di Formula 1 e da Gfinity, una delle aziende leader mondiali dell’esports.

Julian Tan, Head of Digital Growth & F1 Esports di Formula 1 ha affermato:
“La serie dell'anno scorso è stata un grande successo e considerando il livello di coloro che si sono qualificati per il Pro Draft di quest'anno, la stagione 2018 si preannuncia ancora più entusiasmante. I piloti ora si daranno battaglia per un'opportunità davvero incredibile. Con le squadre di F1 coinvolte siamo riusciti a combinare la potenza degli Esports con la magia della Formula 1, stabilendo una serie autentica. Non vediamo l'ora di assistere allo svolgimento dell'azione.”

2017 Finalists Secure Pro Draft Spots

The F1 Esports Qualifying Events saw over 66,000 people attempt to get through to the all-important Pro Draft phase, and after countless hours, laps – and no doubt hitting ‘restart session’ a few times – we’re down to the top 39 racers.
This elite pool of 39 will put their talents on display publicly at the first ever F1 Esports Combine at Silverstone during British Grand Prix week, where they will also take several physical and mental assessments. On Monday 9 July, at the Pro Draft, nine official F1 Esports teams will then get to pick the drivers to represent them in the latter stages of the 2018 F1 Esports Series.
That includes the 36 who qualified directly from the twelve qualifying races, two wildcard entries, and two returning nearly men from last year’s championship. But who are these returning finalists from 2017? Take a look at all of the Grand Finalists from 2017 who have made it through to the 2018 Pro Draft phase…

Fabrizio Donoso Delgado
The teenager from Chile came oh-so-close to taking victory in the inaugural season of F1 Esports,but will get a second bite of the cherry as the series moves into its Pro Series stage in 2018. His memorable last-lap scrap with Brendon Leigh on the final lap in Abu Dhabi was one of the highlights of the event.
Sven Zurner
“It’s really really nice to be here, I love it!” Those were the words of the smiling German as he picked up his trophy for third place in last year’s Abu Dhabi finale. Though he missed out on the top spot, he’ll have the opportunity to ascend the podium even further in 2018 thanks to his efforts in the 2017 series.
Salih Saltunç
The elder of the two Saltunc brothers, Salih made it all the way to the final in Abu Dhabi last year after clinching his spot during the fourth and final heat of the serm-finals. After a tough start in the finale, a spirited effort saw him finish P10 in the Abu Dhabi decider, elevating him to twelfth overall in the standings. He wasted no time stating his intent in 2018, cruising to victory in the first Qualification race in China.
Sonuc Saltunç
Saltunc Jr and his brother were almost inseparable on-track during last year’s proceedings, with the pair very evenly-matched despite Sonuc’s three-year age deficit. He was an unfortunate victim in the deciding race in Abu Dhabi last year, becoming the only DNF of the final and clocking in at 20th in the overall standings. However, much like his brother, he qualified on the very first attempt for the 2018 Pro Draft, finishing second in the China Qualification race on Xbox.
Patrik Holzmann
Veteran sim racer Patrik Holzmann had a shining Esports record in 2017. He memorably fought with Sven Zurner for the final podium position in the Abu Dhabi finale, but couldn’t quite find a way past. Finishing fourth in that race, as well as fourth overall, there’s no reason Holzmann can’t do even better as the Pro Series begins in 2018.
Joni Tormala
The PC racer lingered just outside the top ten in the first two races of last year’s finale in Abu Dhabi, but ascended the ranks to finish a fine P8 in the deciding race, netting a tenth-place finish for the Finnish habitant. He held his nerve to narrowly keep opposition at bay in the PC China Qualifier – and the rest is history. His place in the Pro Draft is booked, how far can he go?
Cem Bolukbasi
Esports in 2017 was a story of what could have been for this highly-rated German. After a poor start to the Grand Final – finishing just 19th in Canada, he bounced back with a thumping victory at the second race in Belgium, before coming home 11th in the Abu Dhabi finale, claiming fifth in the overall standings. Nevertheless, Bolukbasi is back and showed his might in the PS4 China Qualifying race with victory.
Allert Vanderwal
A podium in Belgium and a fine P7 finish in Abu Dhabi at last year’s grand final event helped secure the Dutchman seventh place overall in the inaugural F1 Esports Series. Victory in the Xbox Qualifier around Baku City Circuit ensures he has the opportunity to improve on his position this year as he reaches the Pro Draft.
Cedric Thome
Thome endured a tough fight in the 2017 Esports Grand Final, scooping up seven points in the Abu Dhabi race to wind up 17th overall in the standings. He will be hoping for better this year as he progressed to the Pro Draft, after finishing second in the Baku Xbox race.
Frederik Rasmussen
This Great Dane started strongly in the Finals last year, taking a podium in Canada behind eventual victor Brendon Leigh and third place man Sven Zurner. He endured a tougher race in Belgium, but bounced back to grab sixth place in the race, and overall as well. His place in the Pro Draft was secured with P2 in the PC Qualifier around the Azerbaijan GP Circuit.
Gianfranco Fausto Giglioli
The speedy Italian had a breakout performance in Esports in 2017, and was one of just a select few to score points in every round of the Grand Final. A third-place finish in the Spanish qualifier on PC earned him a spot in this year’s Pro Draft, where he’ll be hoping to improve on his eighth place overall in last year’s standings.
