“We took part in F1 Esports last year and the response was incredibly positive. We are a Team who has always backed youth and this opportunity provides us with the potential to engage with a wider and younger audience, whilst becoming competitive in a rapidly expanding and exciting new discipline,” F1 team principal Christian Horner said. “I can’t profess to be an expert in the field yet, but I look forward to seeing how our rapidly expanding Team fares against the best sim racers in the world.”

Earlier this year G2 Esports closed on a $17.3M USD growth funding round. Additionally, the organization added former Red Bull exec Sabrina Ratih as a partnership executive in January.

Fernando Alonso, a two-time F1 champion, previously partnered with G2 Esports and Logitech to create a racing sim team, but the team dissolved in 2018. Earlier this week Alonso continued his team brand with Logitech G.

Last year, Team Vitality Database-Link-e1521645463907 also made a commitment to racing esports when it joined forces with motorsport brand Renault Sports. At the time, the team had just signed a Rocket League Database-Link-e1521645463907 team, but they were in discussion with F1 to join their esports series.
