If there was ever a moment where teams in the F1 Pro Esports Championship needed to knuckle down, Red Bull Racing Esports team came out fighting.
I do not know what was said to the Red Bull drivers, but someone, somewhere within the team or management at Red Bull Racing Esports team needs a big shoutout and standing ovation.
Red Bull Racing are renowned for being winners and relentlessly being hard chargers in the sim racing world and motorsport. When you represent a team like Red Bull, expectations are high and boy did they deliver.
Rounds 4 and 5 visited Silverstone and Monza for a double header that had no time for feelings, patience and questions. This was right into the deep end, revs are up and prove why you are in the top flight of Formula 1 sim racing.
