Leclerc's Virtual GP annihilation deserves great credit

The introduction of Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, George Russell and Antonio Giovinazzi to Formula 1's Virtual GP last weekend meant it was a step above the franchise's debut two weeks ago. But a dominant performance from Esports newcomer Leclerc stole the show

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc needed just eight days of practice to annihilate the Formula 1 Virtual Grand Prix field and take victory on his competitive Esports debut.

Renault junior Guanyu Zhou was a worthy winner of F1's first-ever Virtual GP - aimed at filling the void left by the postponement of the real-life F1 season.

Three-time grand prix winner Johnny Herbert cutting Turn 1 to storm from the back of the grid to first place tells you all you need to know about the merit of succeeding in that race.
