Formula 1’s Esports Virtual Grand Prix series continues it journey around the world with the Spanish Grand Prix. Here is all the information you need to follow today’s event.

The Esports Virtual Grand Prix series is currently running in place of the 2020 F1 season’s postponed rounds, with all teams and drivers invited to take place tonight. It is the fifth round of the virtual season, will begin at 18.00 and is being streamed live online.

Using the 2019 F1 game, a Qualifying will feature first and be followed by a 33 lap race (50% of the actual race) at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

How can I watch the Spanish Virtual Grand Prix?

All drivers taking part will compete remotely from home and it will be broadcast live from the Gfinity Esports Arena. It will be streamed directly onto the official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch and Facebook channels, as well as F1.com and Sky Sports F1 in the UK, while teams often share the stream from their channels too.

Prior to this, the F2 and F3 support races will be kicking off at 16.00 and will race at Monaco.

Which drivers are taking part?

The grid will feature a number of the current F1 racers, plus former racers, Esports stars and a handful of other celebrities.

They return to battle it out for victory with their respective Red Bull and Ferrari teams, plus a full strength line-up from Williams of George Russell and Nicholas Latifi, Lando Norris at McLaren and Antonio Giovinazzi at Alfa Romeo.

Elsewhere, former Toro Rosso driver Vitantonio Liuzzi returns to the Italian team for an outing this weekend, while Esteban Gutierrez and Anthony Davidson get a run with Mercedes.
