The Stakes Get Higher in the F1 Esports Pro Draft



July 10, 2018

In the Gfinity Arena last night, the top F1® Esports drivers had the opportunity to the attend the Pro Draft. Behind them, representatives from each of the nine F1 teams taking part deliberated on which driver(s) they were going to pick for their Esports team. The atmosphere was incredible – and if you missed any of the F1 Esports Pro Draft action, you can rewatch it all here:

Sixteen of the forty drivers were picked by F1 teams, with Williams Esports picking first. You can read more about how the night went here! And you can check out our Twitter Moment of the night here:

What an incredible night – it was great to see so many of the drivers we watch race, the names we’ve seen on the top of our leaderboards, year after year, get the chance to be picked by actual F1 teams. Congratulations to all of the top 40 Pro Draft drivers, whether you were picked, or whether you weren’t – to get to here is a huge achievement in itself.

We’ve picked some of our favourite photos from last night!
