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.”

FIFAe Club World Cup 2021 to take football into another world

As the dust settles on the draw for the FIFAe Club World Cup™ zone finals, the remaining 42 teams represented by two players each eye up who stands between them and triumph. The greatest FIFAe club event, played on EA SPORTS FIFA 21, will see the best esports teams in the world battle it out for their share of the $350,000 in prize money.

With the sweet taste of glory resting at their fingertips and teamwork being a decisive ingredient for success, each club will start their journey to the title in the group stage starting on February 24. The best two teams from each of the six zones will then progress to the finals weekend, for their chance to be named FIFAe Club World Cup 2021 zone winners.

This will be the first of several FIFAe tournaments this year, as FIFA continues to invest in growing a new, dedicated esports vertical for future generations. A total of 480 teams from across the globe participated in the online qualifiers throughout four weeks of competition. This was a 150% increase on last year’s tournament, showing the huge appetite from clubs and the community.

As well as increased participation, the level of skill is also at an all-time high making for some thrilling matches. Every fan knows nothing compares to their favourite player running rings around the competition. Ultimately though it’s teamwork, not the individual, that wins big. In this two-person esports competition the same is true – individual superstars are teaming up and will need to be performing at their very best to walk away with the title.

Some of the biggest clubs of the scene such as record-participant Manchester City and reigning champion Complexity Gaming will compete to raise their club badge to new heights and to grow their club legacies.

The new #FameYourGame tagline complements FIFA’s ambition to ensure all competitive FIFA players are given the support they need to establish themselves as global superstars.

Christian Volk, Director of eFootball and Gaming at FIFA commented, “In the next few days we will see the most exciting, talented young esports players the world has to offer and take to the stage to create their club legacy. The FIFAe Club World Cup should be on your watchlist – make sure to tune-in!”

For fans eager to follow the competition all matches until the knockout stage, from 24 to 26 February, will be available on FIFA.gg. The main feed, which will be produced remotely from London, will start at 4.30pm CET on 26 February. Friends who want to watch the action unfold, as if they were in the same room, should check out FIFA’s newly created ‘watch together’ feature.

Aspiring commentators are also being given the chance to get involved in this year’s FIFAe Club World Cup™. Each zone is being assigned a dedicated commentary team to report on live matches.
