F1 Esports Pro Series Event 3 Live This Week, With Trio of Iconic Circuits
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The F1 Esports Pro Series presented by Aramco continued with three dramatic races in Event 2 as Alfa Romeo’s Jarno Opmeer and Red Bull’s pairing of Marcel Kiefer and Frede Rasmussen occupied the podium spots in all three races, each taking a crucial win in the fight for the driver’s championship. You can view the ‘Top 5 moments’ from Event 2 on YouTube here, and are free to embed this in editorial if you wish.

For Event 3, the drivers will take to the track at three of F1’s most iconic circuits, with Wednesday’s double-header featuring races at Silverstone and Spa, before drivers seek to rack up vital championship points at Monza, one of the calendar’s fastest tracks, on Thursday ahead of the Grand Final next month.

The live shows will be streamed online via F1’s official channels on Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and Huya, as well as broadcast on television by international partners such as ESPN (US), Sky (UK) and Ziggo (Netherlands), whilst Qualifying show content will be streamed exclusively on Twitch, YouTube and Huya (China).

Ahead of the penultimate round of races for this year’s Pro Series, we caught up with four of the competition’s stars to get their thoughts on the season so far. Please feel free to use these comments in editorial around the build-up to Event 3.

 

Nicolas Longuet

“I’m feeling really confident for Monza, my pace looks like it’s carried over from last year. I’ve got unfinished business, Daniel Ricciardo style, in Monza so I’ll be trying to finish on the top step of the podium this time.”

“I’m still targeting at least second place in the driver standings. First is difficult at the moment because of Jarno [Opmeer]’s great performances but I’m not going to stop because I’m content with P4 – I’m still pushing for a better result.”

Joni Tormala

“I’m feeling good. It’s been tough couple of weeks now since the gap was so close and we needed to start preparing right away and I don’t think I’ve had a single day off since then. I’m hoping I will be consistently in the points and pushing for a podium which would be a really good achievement.”

“[On winning with the Pro Series team championship Red Bull in 2019] You grow a lot as a person being in a championship fight. This year has been a different approach for the whole team because I’ve come in with that experience and I can help with the preparations as much as possible. It definitely helps having that experience.”

 

Alvaro Carreton

“Silverstone is my favourite track so I can’t wait to race there and hopefully I can do a good job there, with a little bit of luck as well fingers crossed we can get a good result. I’m more confident than ever.”

 

Lucas Blakeley

“I have the confidence that I’m driving at a very high standard and the thing that gets me through the hard times is a core belief in what I can do. I don’t think any results I’ve achieved in the past was a fluke and I have confidence in myself and the team that we can achieve these things again.”

“The level of F1 Esports this year is so high. If you look at previous years, it has never been so close before. I think in Bahrain, where I qualified in P6, the top seven was within 800ths of a second. You’d be lucky to see two cars separated by that margin in F1 so it’s very challenging this year and you need to put every fine detail together to extract the optimum lap time.”

SPORT1 and Psyonix continue cooperation: The new season of the Rocket League Championship Series live on eSPORTS1 and eSportsONE
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The new season of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) will be live on eSPORTS1 and the pan-European channel eSportsONE as well as selected events live on free-TV on SPORT1: Sport1 GmbH and video game developer Psyonix have extended their 2020 cooperation by one year. The deal was brokered by IMG and includes platform-neutral rights to the Rocket League Championship Series for the pan-European area. RLCS Season 2021-22 kicked off on October 15 with the first regional tournament for North America. From October 22 to October 24, the first regional for Europe will now take place, which eSPORTS1 and eSportsONE will broadcast live daily from 5:00 p.m. The decisive matches can also be seen on Sunday live from 8:00 p.m. on SPORT1 on free-TV. Just like last year, selected events of the top-class tournament series will also be shown live on free-TV on SPORT1.

This is how the Rocket League Championship Series 2021-22 works

In Rocket League, players try to get a ball into the opponent’s goal using rocket-powered cars. Launched in 2016, the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) pits the world’s best teams against each other in this esports title. Since last season, the tournament series has been divided into three sections: “Fall”, “Winter”, and “Spring”, each of which includes three regional events for North America and Europe as well as a major tournament. At the end of the season, the best Rocket League team in the world will be crowned in the Rocket League World Championship. 

eSPORTS1 and the pan-European channel eSportsONE will accompany the entire 2021-22 season of the Rocket League Championship Series live. After the season opener last weekend, the EU Regional 1 of the first stage of the season “Fall” is now scheduled from Friday, October 22, to Sunday, October 24, which eSPORTS1 and eSportsONE will broadcast live daily from 5:00 p.m. The decisive matches can also be seen on Sunday live from 8:00 p.m. on SPORT1 on free-TV. The commentators are Pascal Schuster, Florian Merz, Jonas Schaffrick and Fabian Sieroka (see overview for exact line-up). The first seasonal section’s two other Regionals in North America and Europe will take place at the end of October and in November. The first Major event is currently scheduled for December 8-12. Selected events will also be shown live on SPORT1 on free-TV.

G2 Esports Announces its First Ever All-female Team

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

G2 Esports, one of the world’s leading entertainment and esports brands, has announced the launch of its first ever all-female team for VALORANT. G2 Esports is among the most well-known and competitive organisations in the VALORANT scene and esports overall.

The G2 female VALORANT team, known as G2 Gozen, comprises some of the most successful and prominent female esports talent within the industry. The team roster includes Juia “Juliano” Kiran, Michaela “Mimi” Lintrup, Zainab “zAAz” Turkie, Petra “Petra” Stoker and Anja “aNNja” Vasalic. G2 has also completed one of the first ever female player buy-outs in esports for aNNja to help build the team and strengthen the roster.

Team Captain Julia “juliano” Kiran said: “I grew up with gaming since I could walk and talk. I started playing Counter Strike when I was 11 and went to my first tournament at 16. Now that I play professionally, I take my career in esports very seriously. There is no end goal for the team; instead, we strive for greater success and continuous improvement. We all train for eight, nine, ten, eleven, and twelve hours a day in order to continuously improve and win more tournaments.”

Team member Michaela “Mimi” Lintrup said: “It’s surreal. I have never experienced anything like this before, we are all very excited and ready to compete.”

The formation of the team is part of G2’s end goal to empower men and women to compete alongside each other in mixed leagues. In addition to adding further strength and skill to the organisation, G2 strives to hire the best and highest performing gamers in the industry to compete at the highest level possible, irrespective of gender identity. This VALORANT team in particular is made up of all females and overall features some of the world’s top players.

Highlighting experiences with diversity within the esports industry, Team Captain Julia “juliano” Kiran comments exclusively on challenges she has faced playing in a male dominated industry:

“Many people argue that there is no difference between being a woman and a man in terms of skill and they question why there are no women on the top level, however, they are unaware that women make up such a small percentage of the industry. Competing as a woman within this industry means you have to deal with a lot of bullying and a lot of things that men don’t have to deal with, and it can be unnerving.”

Team member Petra “Petra” Stoker said: “Developments have already been made in the industry, many teams are being represented and brought up. Riot’s Game Changers have already made a big difference in both the competitive and viewer scenes.”

Carlos “Ocelote” Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of G2 Esports, said: “To me, they aren’t a female team, they are our VALORANT team. At G2, we build teams and bring in players based on skill and brand fit. These are amongst the best female players in the world and we’re proud to have them. We’ll support them all the way, as we support all our teams, and look forward to seeing them grow and kick some ass as part of the G2 army.”
