We were treated to a great night of racing in the first F1 Esports New Balance Pro Series event, and the second live event at the Gfinity Arena in London did not disappoint. Miss out? You can watch the whole event in its entirety here:
Circuit Paul Ricard was the setting for the fourth race in the Pro Series calendar, and the first of this event. With a lot at stake, this was always going to be a closely fought race, and we certainly were not disappointed. After a 5 second penalty was given to race winner Brendon Leigh for causing an unavoidable collision, the win was given to Toro Rosso’s Patrik Holzmann. Upon extensively studying footage, however, the penalty was overturned, and it was Leigh who took the win, with Toro Rosso’s Patrik Holzmann and Frederik Rasmussen taking the other spots on the podium. You can check out the highlights from this race here:
This wasn’t to be the only time that Frederik Rasmussen and Brendon Leigh battled on track, and this is certainly true of race five, on Silverstone, which you can watch below:
Last, but no means least, was Spa-Francorchamps, and it was a dominant Daniel Bereznay who took the chequered flag, but behind him the fight for the last podium place was incredibly close, and you can watch it here:
Here are the top 10 driver standings after six races:
|1||Brendon Leigh||130||2||Frederik Rasmussen||87|
