F1 Esports: how to become a Pro

November 30, 2018

The world of Esports is now firmly established in Formula 1 and the Scuderia Toro Rosso entry took second place in the Constructors' Championship of this year's Pro Series, thanks to a brilliant showing from its team, made up of 18 year old Dane, Fredrik Rasmussen, 24 year old German, Patrik Holzmann and the 20 year old Turk, Cem Bolukbasi. Find out how they train, how they got involved in this sport and how they became friends.

Video games are no longer just toys: they have morphed into a truly global form of competition. But how do you end up racing in the F1 Esports Pro Series? With passion and talent, but also with a lot of dedication and plenty of practice: our guys train every day at home and sometimes together in Milton Keynes (UK) with their team-mates from Red Bull Racing. Our Esports drivers regard driving as a Pro as a real career for the future. This is a world that even some young racing drivers are now considering as a viable alternative to real racing on track. That's the case with Cem for example: he used to race and even tested Formula 4 and Formula 3 cars.
