    F1 lucked out that it has such a strong and vibrant esports counterpart that it can merge with during these hard times.

      @BoltMix You hit the gas, you shift gears, you steer left and right. The physics is a lot different but how it works is basically the same, unlike football where you don’t use your feet at all in the game.

    • Akmal Ibrahim says:

      @BoltMix it’s still far closer to real driving than playing fifa is to real football. That’s what he’s getting at.

    • aaron names says:

      @BoltMix you sound dense . . . The others explained it well. Also soon enough all real drivers are gonna be really good sim racers as well, otherwise they won’t stand a chance against those doing both

    • AftermathRV says:

      @BoltMix But youre wrong and alot of proffesional race drivers do iracing. The skill DOES translate, its even a narrow translation,however its not a full translation, you need to get over the barrier.

    • Venice Beach Sports Network says:

      Are the real f1 drivers getting paid for this?

    Driver of the day: *Lando* *Bot*

  3. Sir.Smoke says:

    Hulkenberg vs Gutierrez was like the real thing, also Broadbent and Vandoorne, awesome battles all around
    Were some technical issues as were expected, those will be ironed out. Overall not bad !
    Herbert is a legend 😀

    Hoped for Nico to get a Podium! But as always he got hit with bad luck:(

  5. Денис Василев says:

    Jimmy is awesome! He proved he can drive perfectly and handle the pressure from Lando (a pro F1 driver). On top of it all Jimmy had old mediums but Lando had the newer softs. An incredible race today. Really enjoyed it, F1!!!

    • fifa focker says:

      @Jam Dev yea that was fucking stupid

    • Emman Paul says:

      @Jounaas uh during the battle in lap 14 Lando was actually driving.

    • SilverSylphide says:

      @Денис Василев Jimmy basically held his line after the first bump and lando took himself out.

    • Curious Cat says:

      Jimmy only did well bEcAuSe DoMiNaNt CaR.

    • BoltMix says:

      After watching Lando’s and Jimmys streams.

      It was simple problem of Codemasters making a buggy game.

      In this case Lando and Jimmy weren’t seeing the same things

      On Lando’s stream the red arrows appeared all of a sudden and it looked like Jimmy dive bombed him from behind.

      On Jimmy’s stream it looked like Lando randomly started turning left and pushed of Jimmy.

      Lando was more at fault.

      But this entire situation wouldn’t have happened if codemasters knew how to program their game

    Will FIA ban #landobot for next real F1 race?

  7. Steph says:

    overall it was really entertaining XD, the battles between Hulk and Gutiérrez, Lando the bot, driving up to P2, and every 3 somebody spins arround XD, looking forward to the next races with hopefully 50%

    • DeaShoost says:

      lando bot only drove half or to about P5, then real Lando then took over. can be seen and heard on Landos Stream.

    • Steph says:

      @DeaShoost i didnt watched bis Stream, but here they said , that hes back when he was already in P2 so nvm still funny enough XD

    Unfortunately, Liam Payne thinks that “f1-type ferrari” only has “6 gear speed”

  9. dominic_27.3 says:

    Driver of the Day: Johnny Herbert 😂😂 change my mind😂😂 his Start was absolutely legendary 😂😂😂

  10. ZeAnonymusAnonym says:

    1:18:42 he roasted Williams so hard I felt bad for them x)

  11. Antonius Baswara says:

    1:02:44 WTF Johnny Herbert

  12. Die Legende says:

    Should have called it “ActuallyTheBahGP”

    Nice first virtual grand prix and thank you for the efforts. The commentators were entertaining, the drivers were interesting and the race was packed with battles. However, I think the coverage needs more work. It seemed like 8 out of 14 laps were purely focused on the fight between Hulkenberg and Gutiérrez. The front runners were mostly ignored after the first few laps. Shortening the race from 50% to 25% due to technical difficulties was questionable in my opinion, it made it just too short. The wait was longer than the race, or so it felt. Have you considered partnering up with Veloce Esports for this broadcasts? You’re doing virtually the same, one or two hours apart. Same circuits and lots of the same drivers. It can get confusing for the audience and it makes each event seem less special. I’d rather watch a full race or even a 50% event organized jointly, than watching a series of shorter races on the same circuit as it happened today.

    Was the AI on 110? LandoBot was flying through the field!

    *F1 cancels the Grand Prix 2020*
    F1 Drivers: How about we race in F1 2019 game

  16. Belgium Adventure says:

    Is this where humanity is going 😂

  17. Elias says:

  18. NikZ Racing says:
