Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN in good hands for Spanish esports weekend

Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN will have class on show during this weekend’s esports competitions, with Antonio Giovinazzi remaining a constant fixture in our driver line-up. The Italian will compete, as last weekend, in both the Veloce “Not the GP” Series and the official Formula One Virtual Grand Prix. He will be paired with esports ace, Daniel Bereznay, in the former and with Real Madrid CF goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, in the latter.

With just short of three million viewers tuning in to watch the race live on various platforms, expectations are sky high for the team. Having been plagued by game issues outside of his control, Antonio will aim to reap the fruits of his work in the two events; with his technical gremlins hopefully behind him, his pace has a chance to come through and earn him a top position at the chequered flag.

Alongside Antonio, shot-stopper extraordinaire Thibaut Courtois will ensure the team is in the safest pair of hands. Having demonstrated his ability behind the wheel, the Belgian footballer returns to the Virtual Grand Prix, making his official debut for Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN. Clinching a top result on his first outing with the team in the series would be a sweet way to mark the day…

Sunday will also see the return of the Pro Exhibition race, in which Daniel Bereznay will be paired with Iran’s Bardia Boroumand – the Hungarian also competing for the team in the Veloce series on Saturday. After a convincing show in Brazil last week, the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN duo enter this weekend’s race with the sights firmly on a top result – despite the ever increasingly competitive field they will have to contend with.

The Spanish Virtual Grand Prix will be live from 7:00pm (CEST) on Sunday, May 10, on Formula One’s official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch, Weibo, Huya and Facebook channels. The Pro Exhibition race will start one hour before, at 6:00pm (CEST), while the Veloce “Not the GP” will take place at 9pm (CEST) on Saturday.
