The young guns of F1 like Charles Leclerc, Lando Norris, George Russell are using the quarantine time efficiently. These young and talented drivers are competing virtually.
Formula 1 is organizing the F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series. It includes the various F1 drivers and sportspersons from different games. The arrangement has been made to empower fans to keep watching Formula 1 races for all intents and purposes. The progressing COVID-19 circumstance has influenced this current season’s initial race schedule.
The virtual races run instead of each delayed Grand Prix. This started with the Virtual Bahrain Grand Prix on March 22. Each resulting race weekend sees the deferred Formula 1 race supplanted with a Virtual Grand Prix, with the activity as of now booked to run until the start of the season. F1 has already conducted three Virtual races with Charles Leclerc winning the last two.
Nine races have been so far canceled/postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It all started with the late cancelation of the Australian GP just hours before Friday’s practice session. The Canadian GP is the latest race to be postponed. The next race on the 2020 schedule is the French GP on 28th June.
