Alpine Esports is proud to announce its roster for the 2022 F1 Esports Series. After finishing at 5th place last year, Alpine Esports is hoping that the new line-up will bring a big success, both on track and off. Two new names will drive alongside last year’s rookie Patrik Sipos.

An intense selection process saw the 3 drivers put through the paces to test their ability. Not just by breaking down their performance on the track, but the drivers also went through strict cognitive and physiological tests to assess their talents and find their optimal performance.

The 3 drivers will compete for Alpine Esports in the F1 Esports Series, starting later this year, on the new F1 2022 Game from Codemasters. The drivers will also represent the team through appearances and content including in the 2022 season of “The Conquest”: a mini-documentary series that will follow the challenges faced by the drivers, as they tackle the biggest competition in sim racing.


Re-Introducing Patrik Sipos for 2022

Patrik is an 18-year-old young Hungarian and 2022 will be his second season under the Alpine Esports colours. His first season was convincing for the team, collecting his first points, and making it through to Q3 in multiple races. Patrik is one of the rising stars of F1 Esports and 2022 will be a key year that he cannot wait to get started with! Patrik’s talents are not just limited to the popular F1 games, as he participated in the Le Mans Virtual race with the Alpine Esports n°36 team, managed by Fernando Alonso. He has a clear aim this season: compete at the front of the grid and win his first victory in the F1 Esports Series.


Fresh for 2022: Samuel Bean & Filip Prešnajder

Samuel is an 18-year-old young Spanish driver, whose motorsport career started in karting and soon propelled him to the world of virtual racing. Samuel successfully qualified for the F1 Esports Challenger Series in 2021, and has already gained himself a reputation in the grassroots competition. Samuel finished in 6th place in his first series and fought his way to victory during the season. Alpine Esports believes that this young Spaniard is one of the talents to follow during the 2022 season.

Filip is 19-year-old and from Slovakia. His Sim Racing career started with his victory in the Challenger Series on PlayStation in 2019. He quickly transitioned to PC Sim Racing, where he joined the Scuderia Ferrari in 2020. His first qualifying with the team impressed everyone, by finishing in Q3, and in the top 6 of the race. In 2021, he moved to Alfa Romeo, where he faced a challenging season. Filip is keen to display his true talent and potential with a new team and a new attitude at Alpine.

Heading up the training and development of driver talent at Alpine Esports; Richard Arnaud – Team Principal Alpine Esports

“2022 is a new step in the development of Alpine Esports. Our team has been reshaped this season. We probably have the youngest team on the grid, but we have our ambitions. 2021 was a learning year for everyone with ups and downs, but I believe that we have a very solid base and the chemistry in the team is already extremely positive. We do not expect to be the favourites on paper, our target will be to do as well as last year when we finished 5th and to fight for podiums. The entire team is super motivated to bring Alpine Esports as high as possible!”


Drivers thoughts about their upcoming 2022 season:


Patrik Sipos – Alpine Esports F1 Esports Driver

“I am happy to continue with Alpine Esports, last year was a strong learning year where I was able to score my first points and proved that I am capable to compete at the top. I am hungry and cannot wait to start the 2022 season and put Alpine Esports at the front of the grid!”


Samuel Bean – Alpine Esports F1 Esports Driver

“This year will be my first one. I have a lot of ambitions; one of them is to learn of course, but for sure I aim to score my first points for the team as soon as I get an opportunity. Like Fernando during the Grand Prix, I hope to shine in the virtual world. I will give my maximum to the team!”


Filip Prešnajder – Alpine Esports F1 Esports Driver

“After 2 years in F1 Esports, I wanted to start a new and ambitious project, able to give me a chance to prove my value. Last season was difficult, as I was combining Esports with my studies, but now that I have completed my degree, I am 100% focused on esports. Alpine Esports has already proven to be a place where drivers are given great opportunities to succeed, so I cannot wait to start and be one of the positive surprises this year!”

This new line up for the F1 Esports Series highlights a continued commitment by Alpine to grow and develop itself in the esports space.

Ownership Group Behind Version1 Enters Strategic Partnership With G2 Esports



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Esports organization Version1 has entered into a strategic partnership with G2 Esports in which Version1’s ownership will become G2 shareholders and G2 will receive operating rights to the Minnesota Røkkr Call of Duty League team. Version1 has fielded championship teams across the Call of Duty League, Rocket League and VALORANT, and is backed by WISE Ventures, the investment arm of the Wilf family, owners of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings and MLS and NWSL teams Orlando City SC and Pride, among other holdings, and entrepreneur and investor Gary Vaynerchuk.

The partnership marks a huge milestone for G2 Esports as the organization continues to expand its footprint in North America, one of the largest esports markets. Recently, G2 Esports announced its entry into VALORANT through the VCT Americas league with the acquisition of players from The Guard, and this new partnership enables G2 Esports to enter into the Call of Duty League™, with the Minnesota Røkkr team.

With the entry into Call of Duty League™,, G2 Esports continues to redefine its position as a truly global esports and entertainment organization – one of very few organizations to have as many properties, and is continually thriving at a sustainable pace. The company will now field rosters in 8 major esports titles including League of Legends, VALORANT, Counter Strike, Rainbow Six, Rocket League, Wild Rift, Sim Racing and Call of Duty, with 5 out 12 teams outside of Europe.

“Today marks yet another huge and impactful milestone for G2 Esports as we continue to expand and push the boundaries of what we want to achieve as an organization,” said Alban Dechelotte, CEO of G2 Esports. “We’re thrilled to welcome the Wilf Family and Gary Vaynerchuk  to the G2 family. This strategic partnership brings us a step closer to our goal of expanding into the truly global esports organization. We’ve established ourselves as a powerhouse in Europe and it’s no secret that North America, alongside expansion into Asia, is a big priority for us. We can’t wait to bring the G2 way to yet another esports league with Minnesota Røkkr in the Call of Duty League™; it’s one of the most exciting leagues in North America with highly engaged and passionate fans. We’re excited to show them how G2 does things, and look forward to winning more trophies for our North American fans.”

With this move, the Version1 brand will be put on hold with no plans to field competitive teams. Founded in 2019, Version1 teams won a major title in the Call of Duty League™, an international Rocket League event, multiple regional championships in Rocket League and VALORANT Game Changers, and qualified for six international majors across Rocket League and VALORANT. The organization established a strong regional and national fan base while raising the bar for live event experiences, community engagement and content. The ownership group continues to see the value and potential of the esports industry, which is why they are excited to remain in esports through this partnership, and trust that G2 will continue to build toward their shared vision as G2 expands its global footprint.

Jonathan Wilf, President & Ownership Partner of Version1, commented, “I am excited about the next chapter for the Version1 story. We continue to believe in the future of esports and know partnering with a top tier organization such as G2 will best position our group for future success.”

Konrad von Moltke, Principal of WISE Ventures, added, “We have been impressed with what G2 has built: a competitive powerhouse, a strong and growing commercial engine, and a passionate and loyal fan base. In what has been a challenging esports market environment, G2’s focus on sustainable growth has been remarkable.”
