22 Aug 2017

Formula One EsportsA new unique experience has been created by the Formula One partnership with two of the most important game developers, Codemasters and Gfinity.

The new season will start in September as to get the same starting point with the original F1 2017. The first month will include a qualification system, through which the 40 fastest drivers will stand out. Following that, 20 live semi-finals will take place at the Gfinity Arena in London on 10th and 11th October. The Top-20 Formula One Esports drivers will qualify for the finals in Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November.

This three-race event will crown the first ever Formula One Esports world champion, at the same time as the Formula One world champion!

Sean Bratches, head of commercial at Formula One, said: “This launch presents an amazing opportunity for our business: strategically and in the way we engage fans. First, it’s a growing category with tremendous fan engagement that we’re entering in a big way; and we are proud to have Codemasters and Gfinity joining us on this ride. Of course, as we do in Formula One, we’ll continue to evolve and innovate in the way we run this virtual counterpart to the Formula One Championship to ensure we provide the most exciting and enjoyable experience we can for our fans.”
