Charles Leclerc says he knew he would have to put in a flawless display to come out on top in the second round of the F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series. The Ferrari driver led from start to finish in a dominant display on a simulated version of the Australian Grand Prix circuit at Albert Park.
Leclerc’s F1 rivals Alexander Albon, George Russell, Nicholas Latifi and Antonio Giovinazzi were left trailing in his wake as he finished 10 seconds clear of second-place Christian Lundgaard.
