The F1 Pro Esports Championship visited Spa for race 6 in the championship. With the halfway point of the season reached, some will be celebrating.
Race 6 of the F1 Pro Esports Championship took place at Spa and as the mid season point has now been reached, certain teams and drivers can go into the break with positivity whilst for some, the journey is getting tougher.
Spa put on another great show for the greatest sim racing drivers in the F1 Pro Esports Championship, Red Bull racing esports team has surely found the winning formula as Frede Rasmussen stood on the top step again.
Ferrari FDA desperately needed this as the past rounds had not been going to plan. Tonizza needs a strong team mate to support the efforts of Ferrari.
In light of how the teams and drivers are doing in the championship, it shows that Red Bull is the most consistent team, whilst not leading the driver’s championship they are now equaled with Mercedes in the constructor’s championship after hard charging and winning rounds previously.
Rasmussen and keifer are showing they are the perfect team sitting 3rd and 4th in the driver’s title standings. Opmeer for Mercedes is leading, but his tail gunner Moreno at some point will need to come into action to help defend Opmeer’s lead.
Lucas Blakely is flying the flag for Aston Martin F1 Cognizant Esports Team sitting second in the championship but could only muster P6 at Spa. Longuet for Alpine finished P5 but seems to be fading after a strong start to the season.
Haas fans, look away, its not pretty as even the esports team cannot score any points in the championship. Tough times all around which is reflective in the sim racing world.
