This year, the Formula 1 virtual racing series is being conducted remotely for the first time, in addition to offering competitors its biggest prize of around $ 750,000.

To coincide with F1 Esports Pro Draft Reveal Show presented by Aramco, pilots take over the F1 Tracks radio waves to select their own playlist.

In the program, teams announced their lineups for the 2020 season for the first time, with each team being required to add at least one member of the qualifying draft to their list of three drivers.

Each driver suggested their favorite tracks for purchase, ensuring that the playlist is as exciting and unpredictable as the action of eSports.

Some of the songs present are Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Mr. Brightside”, “ Down With The Trumpets ”by Rizzle Kicks,“ Don’t Call Me Up ”by Mabel and“ Dancing in the Moonlight ”by Toploader.

F1 Tracks unites music and sport, providing a dynamic platform for fans. The complete list of tracks in the motorsport category can be found on the main digital platforms.

Great Prizes of Virtual Formula 1

Generally, the virtual competition of the sport takes place parallel to the official races. In other words, the competitors gather at the place destined for the physical event that respective weekend in order to participate in the eSports championship.

Due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus, the organization opted for the remote format to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

In addition, the Virtual GPs were very successful before the official start of the 2020 season, as professional runners, idols from other sports and celebrities were invited to participate in the initiative.

Another point is that the eSports betting industry has been growing dramatically since the start of the social distance measures, so most electronic gaming competitions have been able to continue offering live entertainment to platforms around the world.
