Friday, March 20, 2020 March 20, 2020 at 05:29AM - Formula 1 officially goes virtual from this weekend

Like every sport, Formula 1 has cancelled its upcoming events for the next few months - but unlike other sports there's a fairly neat virtual analogue of the real thing where real drivers can compete, and from this weekend onwards there'll be officially endorsed F1 races to replace the cancelled Grand Prix.

It comes in the wake of a busy weekend of virtual racing as the motorsport world moves online in response to the Covid-19 crisis, as drivers like Max Verstappen and Lando Norris took to rFactor 2 and F1 2019 to put on a pretty impressive show.

Those races look set to continue, with another All-Star Esports Battle featuring Verstappen, IndyCar star Felix Rosenqvist and many others - while on Sunday at 8pm there's also set to be an official F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix featuring as yet undisclosed real-life talent battling it out in F1 2019.
