Ferrari is going to set up their own Esports Formula 1 team.
“Esports is increasing in terms of interest and certainly as Ferrari we are looking seriously into it. We are not yet fully committed to the programme but it’s something where the discussions are ongoing. We will, very soon, make our own decision,” team principal Mattia Binotto said.
F1 Esports series was launched in 2017, which include all nine teams except Ferrari. The 2019 edition of F1 Esports series is having a total prize fund of $500,000.
F1’s Esports series includes a qualifying stage which allows the F1 teams to select their drivers for the Pro Series. Once the drivers have been picked, the Pro Series will take place between September and December across four live events.
