Daniel Bereznay and Cem Bolukbasi were the race winners in Veloce Esports’ #NotTheBahGP event, which featured 2020 Formula 1 drivers McLaren's Lando Norris and star debutant Nicholas Latifi of Williams.

Alfa Romeo F1 Esports driver Daniel Bereznay dominated the opening race from pole position taking his second successive victory in the series, which aims to fill the void left by the postponed F1 season. Renault Esports star and former Formula Renault Eurocup ace Jarno Opmeer once again took second position beating the 2019 World’s Fastest Gamer winner James Baldwin.

Opmeer started the race third behind Baldwin but overtook the British driver on the third of 14 laps for second place. Toro Rosso Esports’ Cem Bolukbasi took fourth position ahead of Latifi – the highest-placed of the current and ex-F1 drivers on his debut.

Popular F1 YouTuber Ben ‘Tiametmarduk’ Daly clinched sixth place despite carrying wing damage, ahead of Mercedes Formula E driver Stoffel Vandoorne and popular streamer Jimmy Broadbent. Ex-Renault Esports driver James Doherty was fighting Bolukbasi for fourth place, but an incident left him ninth at the chequered flag ahead of Lando Norris, who collided with Daly on the opening lap.

The finishing positions were reversed for the reverse-grid race, meaning YouTuber Will ‘WillNE’ Lenney started from pole position alongside streamer Steve ‘SuperGT’ Brown. WillNE was involved in a number of incidents while SuperGT was swallowed up by the F1 Esports regulars.

Bolukbasi came out on top while Baldwin made it two podiums from two races. His Alfa team-mate Bereznay completed the top three ahead of Opmeer and SuperGT. Doherty recovered from his disappointing opening race to finish in sixth. Norris crossed the line in sixth but was demoted to seventh place after speeding in the pitlane.

Former Sauber and Haas F1 driver Esteban Gutierrez was ninth ahead of Latifi, who collided with Aarav ‘Aarva’ Amin during a frantic final lap tussle.

Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois took 12thposition while pro golfer Ian Poulter struggled to get to the grips with the game’s demands and finished 20th and last.

Veloce is expected to announce further events shortly.
