Williams duo Russell and Latifi are first Formula 1 drivers confirmed as Virtual Grands Prix return for charity
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Williams Racing’s George Russell and Nicholas Latifi are the first Formula 1 drivers to confirm their spots as F1 Esports’ hugely-popular Virtual Grands Prix return this weekend. The Virtual Austrian Grand Prix takes place on Sunday 31 January, kicking off a trio of special live events as team’s battle it out for a share of a charity prize pot that they will donate to a cause of their choosing.

Russell is no stranger to the Virtual Grands Prix after winning last year’s series, following a number of impressive performances, as the online racing action took the place of real-life competition when the pandemic first struck. Russell and Latifi will be representing the current crop of F1 drivers in the first event, alongside some former stars of the sport and future prospects, but the Williams Racing duo will be joined by fellow drivers from the 2021 grid in upcoming events.

Alex Albon, Red Bull Racing Test and Reserve Driver and Wings for Life ambassador, was a firm favourite in last year’s Virtual Grands Prix and returns alongside Jeffrey Herlings, Red Bull KTM Factory rider and MXGP World Champion. Pietro Fittipaldi made his Haas F1 debut last season in Bahrain and will represent the American team in this week’s race, alongside his brother Enzo, whilst former F1 drivers Stoffel Vandoorne and Tonio Luizzi will represent Mercedes and AlphaTauri respectively. Renault academy drivers Christian Lundgaard and reigning FIA F3 champion Oscar Piastri will drive for Alpine, whilst Virtual Grand Prix regular and Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois returns this year for Alfa Romeo. The full line-up will be announced across the official F1 social media channels over the coming days.

While the return of Virtual Grands Prix will give fans around the world excitement ahead of the Formula 1 season starting in Bahrain, the primary focus of this year’s three-race competition is to donate money to charities chosen by the teams. Each nominated charity will receive a significant donation from the overall prize fund, regardless of whether the team finishes first or last in the standings after the three events.

This year’s Virtual Grand Prix events will begin with a sprint-race, featuring the team’s talented F1 Esports Pro Series drivers, to decide the starting grid, before the teams’ pairings, made up of motorsport stars, sporting heroes and celebrities, will take to the track and get ready to race. Silverstone and Interlagos will also play host to upcoming virtual races on Sunday 7 February and Sunday 14 February respectively.

The Virtual Austrian Grand Prix will be broadcast from 18:00 GMT on Sunday 31 January on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Huya (China) and Weibo (China) channels, as well as broadcast by international television partners including Sky Sports, ESPN, FOX Sports and Ziggo.

Julian Tan, Head of Digital Business Initiatives & Esports at Formula 1 said:

“We are thrilled to be bringing the Virtual Grands Prix back to keep fans entertained during the off-season as we look forward to the year of racing ahead. Last year’s virtual events were a huge success for F1 Esports and we can’t wait to see the F1 drivers and famous faces back in action once again, and this time all in the name of charity!”

Gambless hits first milestone: $100k worth of resources given free to problem gamblers
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Gambless first big milestone offers a glimpse into where its users come from and confirms the importance of mhealth support

The release of Gambless, a new mobile app tackling gambling addiction, was announced last September. The app, which is accessible on both iOS and Android devices, offers resources to problem gamblers, including informative articles, a self-care diary, coping-skills exercises, diagnostic tests and an emergency chatbot.
Today, less than 5 months later, Gambless announces to have already given away several hundred free codes, allowing access its psycho-educational resources, amounting to over $120.000.

GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION
After the initial months of organic growth, at the beginning of December, Gambless decided to start surveying its users about their location and their most frequented gambling operators.
These data was gathered anonymously, and now it gives a better understanding of its userbase: in the past 8 weeks, 27% of registered users came from the United Kingdom and Ireland, 24% from the USA, 12% are Australians, 10% Italians and 5% Canadians. And while there are people registering from all over the world (30+ countries), a handful of countries account for more than 3/4 of its users.

The pie doesn’t aim to give a global picture of the gambling addiction issue, considering that at the moment Gambless is available in just 3 languages (EN, IT and RU). But it offers an interesting vantage point.

THE IMPORTANCE OF MENTAL HEALTH AND MHEALTH
Gambless has been created and developed by the same team of psychologist who designed Mindspa, another mobile app targeting a broader audience on mental health topics. Combined, the two apps count over 250,000 registered users in less than a year, with 000s of positive reviews.
Studies show that problem gambling often overlaps with other issues. 43% of problem gamblers have also alcohol issues, 25% struggle with drugs, 60% have comorbidity with anxiety and depression, and the list goes on. And from its conception, Gambless mission has been to provide prevention and support to problem gamblers, with a holistic approach on mental health.
Gambless aims to address first and foremost the mental health of vulnerable individuals, offering programs covering emotional intelligence, loneliness, stress, jealousy, and features a collection of hundreds of coping skill exercises on feelings like anger, anxiety, resentment, self-distrust, frustration, sadness, guilt, apathy, fear, and so on.
In this context, it is also extremely important that the role of mhealth (mobile health) support.
Smartphones nowadays have a penetration of over 80% in many countries. Thus, thanks to mhealth, treatment and other resources can be accessed more easily, regardless of socio-demographic aspects. Furthermore, support via mobile phone gives that sense of privacy that often prevents problem gamblers from getting the help they need.

GAMBLESS PLEDGE
It is a known fact that only between 1 and 3 percent of problem gamblers get support each year. With the help of technology, there is the opportunity to both increase awareness and create a diverse and more accessible landscape of support options. And Gambless vows to take its active part to this change.
