Fernando Alonso, the former Formula 1 champion, has launched a new Esports team. The team has BRDC British Formula 3 Championship race winner Jamie Chadwick among its drivers.
Alonso has prior experience with sim racing as a partner to professional Spanish outfit G2.
The new team is a joint venture between Alonso’s existing FA Racing squad – which competes in real-life series such as the Formula Renault Eurocup – and the Veloce Esports team, alongside its technical partner Logitech G.
Veloce will effectively run the sim racing side, having built itself up over the past year to become one of the leading Esports teams.
“I’m very excited to introduce a team of dedicated, talented drivers to represent my team for the 2019 season,” Alonso said.
“I have hand selected some great young talents, who are ready to continue bringing success to the team.”
