Ben Stokes ready for Second Formula 1 Virtual Race

A grid stacked with a number of Formula 1 finest talent is going to be met with England cricketer Ben Stokes within the sport’s second virtual race this weekend.

Ben Stokes, the planet Cup, and two-time Ashes-winning all-rounder and BBC sports personality of the year has

been chosen to race alongside Alex Albon for Red Bull.

The Englishman who may be a Red Bull-sponsored athlete will race against an all-star line-up which boasts five

current F1 stars including Albon, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Williams duo George Russell, and Nicholas Latifi, and McLaren’s Lando Norris.

This weekend’s virtual race will happen at Melbourne’s Albert Park circuit and is an efficient replacement for the

Vietnam Grand Prix which was thanks to hosting its maiden event

this weekend before its postponement

thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Drivers will tackle the Albert Park circuit this weekend thanks to the Hanoi track not being available on the F1

2019 computer game which is getting used for the virtual series.

The first race of the web series was held a fortnight ago on a virtual Bahrain circuit, with Renault’s Chinese driver Guanyu Zhou taking the victory.

Norris and Latifi were the sole current F1 drivers to require a part,

but that number has risen to

5 for this week’s race.

“Cannot wait for this,” Ben Stokes tweeted about Formula 1, with the England star tweeting an image of his simulator set-up.

“Three days of practice so now

going to do my first custom

GP with five races in Australia. This is incredibly hard btw,

so need a little assistance!”
