To qualify for the semi-finals, the competitors will have to race on the virtual versions of the Monza and Suzuka circuits.
The Top 20 semi-finalists will qualify for the finals, which will take place as part of the prestigious 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this November. At the end of a three-race event, the first Formula 1 Esports World Champion will be crowned on the same weekend as the final 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Alongside the pride and prestige of being the first-ever champion, the winner will also be the Formula 1 Esports Champion Expert for 2018 and will automatically qualify for the semi-finals of next year’s Formula 1 Esports Series.
