During the Coronavirus outbreak, and the resulting postponement to the F1 2020 Calendar, Formula 1 has turned to Video Games and Simulators to give us our racing fix. Several large Esport groups have organised replacement virtual races in the past few weeks. We have listed some of the ones that will feature F1 drivers and other notable figures in the online gaming world or real world racing communities.
Below we list any that have caught our eye that should offer some exciting and fun viewing experiences. Max Verstappen and Lando Norris are already active in Esports streaming, but expect others to join as the delay due to Covid 19 continues to extend the delay in racing in real life.
Officially organised ESport event from F1, the second race they have organised during the global pandemic will happen on 8pm (UK Time) 5th April (Sunday) and will use the Melbourne GP Circuit (Albert Park):
