Arsenal star, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is set to lineup for a virtual Formula One grand prix, around Monaco’s street circuit on Sunday, which was supposed to be the original date for the Grand Prix.
Other players haven also taken part in the virtual race series, on the official F1 2019 video game against real F1 drivers.
Some of the players include, Kun Aguero, who took part in the previous virtual Spanish Grand Prix. Also with Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, and Barcelona midfielder, Arthur Melo.
Two F1 drivers will be making their esports debuts too, with Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas, and Renault’s Esteban Ocon, taking part for the first time. They will join regulars Norris, George Russell, Nicholas Latifi, Charles Leclerc, Antonio Giovinazzi and Alex Albon.
Aubameyang is currently receiving tips from McLaren’s Lando Norris. “It’s a bit hard but I try to train every day, some turns are really, really hard.” Aubameyang told Norris.
“Yeah, they chose the hardest track for you to join. Monaco is not easy at all,” replied Norris, before Aubameyang requested some time for them to train together.
“To tell the truth, I’m free every day,” the Arsenal player said. “I am training but then I have all day. The morning definitely I’m not there. But definitely I need some advice on the virtual thing…I need your help, bro.”
