Alfa Romeo Racing F1 Esports Team claims third place in F1 Esports Series finale
The Alfa Romeo Racing F1 Esports Team cemented third place in the constructors’ championship and claimed the final win of the season as the New Balance F1 Esports Pro Series 2019 came to an end at London’s Gfinity Arena on Wednesday night.
Coming into the night with an outside chance of topping both the drivers’ and teams’ standings, the team performed admirably, with star Daniel Bereznay winning the season-ending race in Brazil and team-mate Salih Saltunc scoring in two of the three events of the evening. The resulting points allowed Alfa Romeo Racing F1 Esports Team to leapfrog Renault into third place in the Constructors’ standings, matching the result of the 2018 season, with Daniel finishing in P3 and Salih in P10 in the drivers’ standings.
Despite technical issues preventing our drivers from scoring the points they deserved in the first live show in September, a strong progression in the remaining three evenings of competition ensured the team’s second season in the F1 Esports Series ended in success. Retaining a place in the top three, Alfa Romeo Racing F1 Esports Team demonstrated to be a growing force in the world of motorsport esports, laying the foundations for further success and setting clear sights for both titles in 2020.
Daniel Bereznay (P3 in the drivers’ standings): “I’m delighted with what we achieved this season. To take three race wins in such a competitive field is a fantastic achievement and I’ve got so much confidence in us to challenge for the title in 2020 after the difficulties we faced this year early on.”
Salih Saltunc (P10 in the drivers’ standings): “I’m so proud with how we responded to adversity and fought back to secure third place in the Constructors. This team won’t give up and we have given it our all to clinch this position in the standings in the final race of the season.”
