Last year, Formula 1 tested a new format of interaction with fans, organizing virtual Grand Prix with the participation of current championship racers and famous athletes. The races were popular with the fans – in total, more than thirty million spectators watched the virtual races, so in 2021 it was decided to repeat last year’s experience.
Before the start of the Formula 1 season, there will be three virtual stages, in which both current drivers and veterans of previous years will take part. The Virtual Grand Prix will take place on January 31, February 7 and 14. The organizers promise to name the list of participants and the route later.
Julian Tan, Head of Digital Business Initiatives and Formula 1 Esports: “2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, but we are ready to delight fans even more in 2021, starting with virtual Grand Prix. We are delighted with the return of the riders who have already participated and welcome new faces. “
