WHAT: F1 Esports Pro Series Grand Final Media Conference Call (via Zoom)
WHEN: Monday 14th December – 3pm GMT
Ahead of the F1 Esports Pro Series Grand Final on 16th-17th December, F1 Esports pundit Nic Hamilton and title contenders Jarno Opmeer (Alfa Romeo), Marcel Kiefer (Red Bull), and Nicolas Longuet (Renault Vitality) are taking part in a media conference on Monday 14th December. The Grand Final will see drivers battle it out at Suzuka, Mexico City and Interlagos.
Racing driver and F1 Esports pundit Nic Hamilton, brother of seven-time world champion Lewis, will be on hand to discuss his thoughts on the F1 Esports championship ahead of the Grand Final. Nic has been a feature of the in-studio analysis team from the beginning of the season, presenting live from the Gfinity Arena.
Dutch driver Jarno Opmeer has been top of the Drivers’ Championship since his win in the first race of the season and is currently totalling 153 points. Red Bull pairing, Frederik Rasmussen and Marcel Kiefer are not far off the top with 134 and 121 points respectively. Rasmussen claimed victory at Spa in Event 3 so will be looking to build on that success and push Opmeer all the way to the end.
Renault Vitality’s Nicolas Longuet has also had a great season and is currently sitting in fourth place on 88 points. Longuet secured the top spot on the podium at Silverstone in Event 3 and will be keen to finish this season on a high.
There is a total of 78 points up for grabs going into the Grand Final so it is all still to play for.
The Teams’ Championship is delicately poised with Red Bull currently leading the way on 255 points and Alfa Romeo close behind on 223. Both teams will be wanting to claim every point possible as they vie for the record $750,000 prize pot.
