Round 3 of the F1 2021 Esports Pro Championship visited the Red Bull Ring for another great showdown in the premier sim racing season.
We had seen some outstanding racing so far in the F1 2021 Esports Pro Championship, the Red Bull Ring, and round 3 was going to be another barnstormer.
Previously in the first two races, we had seen Aston Martin F1 Cognizant Esports Team driver Lucas Blakely and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Esports Team racer Jarno Opmeer taking victories that took place at Bahrain and Shanghai.
The championship, although in its early stages is as relentless as it comes, with nothing to be left on the table if you want to be champion. Twelve rounds are all that consists in this high level championship and round 3 has just seen the chequered flag.
Below is the full race replay for round 3 as well as highlights for the first 2 rounds
Note: Further below is the results if you do not wish for spoilers
Now as mentioned above, for no spoilers here we can continue with how race 3 went at the Red Bull Ring. Opmeer is off to a flyer for the start of the season. Laying down big points taken in all races. Lucas Blakeley is sitting second in the championship but off the podium in Austria.
Boromund for Mclaren Shadow picked up third in the race, helping him to be third in the championship and Rasmussen for Red Bull Racing finishing second at Red Bull’s stomping ground and home race for the team.
Tonizza for FDA Ferrari team finished in P5 and team mate Leigh in P8 helping FDA pick up some valuable and needed points.
Race winner for the Red Bull Ring Round 3
Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Esports Team is flying high in the constructor’s championship picking up a nice handful of points over the first three rounds. I am sure the team would be proud of this after a quarter of the way through the season.
Aston Martin is sitting second in the constructor’s championship with Blakeley being the main points scorer for the team. We all know that a driver’s championship is very important, but so is the team, a strong team can work wonders.
Third in the team standings is Red Bull Racing, and sitting rather closely is Alpine in fourth
