Confirmed, here is Melbourne. Some of you may recognize a few international sports superstars and other names.


But I don't think you need to learn "how to Twitch", I think you just go to his Twitch account page at that time and there it is streaming. Although it says "watch on Veloce's Youtube and Twitch", so probably here.

Formula 1 has today announced the launch of a new F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series, featuring a number of current F1 drivers. The series has been created to enable fans to continue watching Formula 1 races virtually, despite the ongoing COVID-19 situation that has affected this season’s opening race calendar.

The virtual races will run in place of every postponed Grand Prix, starting this weekend with the Virtual Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday March 22. Every subsequent race weekend will see the postponed real-world Formula 1 race replaced with a Virtual Grand Prix*, with the initiative currently scheduled to run until May**.


The first race of the series will see current F1 drivers line up on the grid alongside a host of stars to be announced in due course. In order to guarantee the participants safety at this time, each driver will join the race remotely, with a host broadcast live from the Gfinity Esports Arena (or remotely if required) from 8:00pm (GMT) on Sunday March 22.


The series will use the official F1 2019 PC video game, developed by Codemasters, and the first virtual GP on the Sakhir track will be a 50% length race with 28 laps. The broadcast, which will be available on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch and Facebook channels, as well as F1.com, is expected to run for 1 hour 30 minutes, with a qualifying period where grid positions will be determined based on the drivers’ fastest lap time.

Due to the wide variety of gaming skill levels amongst the drivers, game settings will be configured in such a way to encourage competitive and entertaining racing. This includes running equal car performance with fixed setups, reduced vehicle damage, and optional anti-lock brakes and traction control for those less familiar with the game.

The series is strictly for entertainment purposes, to bring racing action to fans in this unprecedented scenario the world has been affected by, with no official World Championship points up for grabs for the drivers.

During non-race weekends, Formula 1 will also be hosting online exhibition races, where fans from around the world will be given the chance to go head-to-head with F1 drivers. More details of these events will be available across the official Formula 1 social media channels in the coming weeks.

Julian Tan, Head of Digital Business Initiatives and Esports said:
“We are very pleased to be able to bring some light relief in the form of the F1 Esports Virtual GP, in these unpredictable times, as we hope to entertain fans missing the regular sporting action. With every major sports league in the world unable to compete, it is a great time to highlight the benefits of esports and the incredible skill that’s on show.”

Frank Sagnier, Chief Executive Officer, Codemasters added:
“We’re excited to be a part of the new F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix Series. With sporting events currently on hold around the world, it’s great that the official F1® video game can help fill the void by bringing together an exciting line-up of talent to race online during the postponed race weekends. It’s going to be competitive, action-packed, and a lot of fun for everyone involved.”

John Clarke, Gfinity Chief Executive Officer said:
“Gfinity is proud to be playing its part in the design and delivery of the F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series, which will bring exciting virtual racing to a legion of Formula 1 and Esports fans around the globe. The virtual Bahrain GP will feature all the thrills and spills of racing with F1 drivers and special guest celebrities going head-to-head, which promises to put a smile back on the faces of millions of sports fans.”

Lando's twitch streams are going to be how I fill the F1 void. That dude never fails to put a smile on my face.

Did anyone watch that F1 "race". That was comically bad. The Nascar race was not amazing TV, but technically the Nascar production was light years better than the F1 fiasco. They had most of the Nascar drivers, they started on time, they had real commentators and they broadcast it on cable TV. I'd watch another Nascar e-race, I'm not sure that I'm gonna tune in for another F1 e-race.

I didn’t watch F1. I did record the eNASCAR race, simply because it was on TV. It was, as expected, a wreck-fest, but I was entertained. Even got the wife and kiddo to watch with me due to the novelty of seeing iRacing on tv.

Honestly, on TV it’s just about as good as real racing. If the drivers took it more seriously and got better at it (I find iRacing to be much harder than actual racing), and if iRacing put together better production tooling and higher quality rendering graphics for broadcast, I could see this surviving the virus and becoming an actual thing people might follow if they get into it during this pandemic.

I watched the F1 race and It was quite hilarious. I would like to see at least a 50% race next time. And it would be great if more of the current F1 drivers would join in. But if it’s down to this or nothing I’ll watch this all day long.

Watched the F1 race. YEah...a bit comical, but better than nothing.

So how many of you are on iRacing? We should do a NASIOC series!

I’m on iRacing. I don’t do much actual racing though. Mostly just run local test sessions at the ‘ring for fun. Actually racing competitively takes more time than I usually have.

I’d be interested in some NASIOC sessions though. Even if it just popping in for some practice sessions.

I found this kind of interesting that the F1 engineers could make this happen quickly.

This virus needs to go away and motorsports needs to return to regularly scheduled programming asap!

For F1 engineers these respirators are easy engineering- it's just adapting these designs to the manufacturing capabilities that they have available that is difficult. That is what they specialize in for all the "latest development" parts that show up on Friday of a race weekend. Realistically- for any good engineer these respirators are not hard to design or to build (if they have adequate manufacturing capabilities nearby). It's getting the regulatory approval for hospitals to use them and not infringe on other companies patents that is difficult.

Yeah I was thinking that was an April Fool's, too. I don't get it, but I'm not a volcano lair billionaire, either.

Anyone else enjoying the old F1 races that Formula 1 is uploading to YouTube? So far they've put up 1986 Australian GP, 1996 Monaco, 1997 European GP.

Oh for sure. They've got such a catalog, I'm not sure why they haven't been uploading like crazy.

Now is the perfect time to create more desire for a return. What better than showing off where it all comes from. Kimi's win in Suzuka. Vettel's Toro rosso win at the wet Monza. The list goes on and on.

Races like Button's first win in the wet from the back of the grid. Spa 2000 (mika vs. Shumi)

Mclaren's domination at Australia in 98 (iirc).

I guess they want subscriber money? *cough
