An 8 lap race Verstappen wins by 6 seconds from Max Gunther, Colton Herta, Felix Rosenqvist, Jimmy Broadbent, Felix da Costa, Junncadella, Neel Jani, these 8 drivers qualifying for the final.

The second race is for the top gamers, the third race is via a qualifying competition.

Yeah it's good were it loses out a bit is the willingness to make contact something you wouldn't see half as much in real racing.

To me, this just feels wrong to be watching, especially with commentators. I think I need to stick to reality! The thoughts that is is all simulated ruin it for me. Nothing wrong with other liking it though.

I can't remember Verstappen's pole lap time, the gamer's pole about half a second to a second quicker than Verstappen.

Now the R2 racers who do endurance racing, apparently these are the hard core sim racers, just confirmed that Verstappen was half a second slower than the gamer's pole lap.

Pole lap 3 tenths quicker than race 2, 8 tenths quicker than what Verstappen managed.

Verstappen qualified 9th, 7 tenths off pole, he must have made a slight mistake as he was 2 tenths slower than he managed in practice, still not bad against the best sim racers in the world.

Best racing driver Felix Rosenqvist in 7th, makes you wonder were Verstappen might have finished because he was quicker, Verstappen ended up 11th helped by some of the crazy driving in front of him.

To make the racing more realistic drivers really need to be penalised for reckless driving.

They are just racing for fun and bragging rights. Since a crash does not injure anyone or carry a cost, they can take more chances.

But that race just opened the door, at this very moment I am watching Max and many other top drivers in a F3 sim race. There will be a heck of a lot more of this stuff in the coming months. iRacing just ran the 12 Hours of Sebring, the turnout was insane. And on April 25th they will conduct a special event, the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. I expect a ginormous turnout with a heck of a lot top drivers.

Racers have to race.

It's a nice filler for those of us starved of watching sports in particular motorsport.

I enjoyed the race, and I hope (and expect) there will be more similar events to come until the season does start properly. Not all the drivers do any sim racing at all, but I wouldn't be surprised if some more who do show up to future events.

Caution: unfiltered strong language. Nicki is a loose cannon.

Just watched the Bahrain race. Bit of a crazy start and a few other dodgy tactics, especially from the Hulk who's idea of stopping someone passing is to weave like he's warming his tyres up, but still very entertaining.

Looking forward to the next race.

INDYCAR and iRacing, the world’s premier motorsports racing simulation, are partnering to currently stage six virtual race events featuring a stellar lineup of current NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers and possibly some special guests beginning Saturday, March 28.

Each race will be streamed live on indycar.com for the enjoyment of racing fans while the current 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season is suspended through April as a result of the coronavirus situation. While indycar.com will serve as the primary live streaming source, there also will be secondary platforms to watch the virtual race events each week – INDYCAR’s YouTube and Facebook Live as well as iRacing’s Twitch.

I am currently watching them practice. Most of the recognizable Indycar drivers are practicing.

Say what you will about US motorsport, but their eSports replacements have been on a level far above what F1 has put together. A hardcore sim with almost the entire field present is something F1 fans can only dream about at present.
