Oggi dalle 20 i team di F1, a parte Alfa Romeo Sauber e Racing Point che hanno già ufficializzato le loro lineup, sceglieranno i loro eDriver.

Fourth, from eleventh on the grid. Newcomer Biancolilla put in an excellent performance during the Xbox One qualifying raceoff to book his slot in the Pro Draft for the first time, mastering the wet conditions and just narrowly missing out on a podium.
In a genuine phoenix from the flames moment, David Tonizza staged an almighty comeback during the PS4 raceoff. Starting from pole, the Italian dropped back to P3, only to have a double-spin in the wet conditions. Pitting for dry tyres as the track improved, Tonizza fought his way back to an excellent P7 – all the more impressive considering he was in last, and 15 seconds off the nearest driver at his lowest point. This performance is sure to have attracted plenty of attention from the teams – he’s one to watch.
There was so much action in the PC raceoff that you might be forgiven for thinking that Laurito slipped in under the radar. With an intense three-car fight for P10 going in, he had already booked his place in the Pro Draft with an eight-place finish.
Opportunist. Sniper. Clutch player. However you describe him, there’s no way of denying that Giglioli’s last-corner overtake on Sebastian Job for P10 in the PC race was probably the closest-fought qualifying position in the competition. The Venezuelan-Italian’s speed and exquisite timing on the brakes will be a valuable asset when it comes to being picked by the ten F1 teams at the Draft. He took part in the series in 2017, making the Abu Dhabi final and finishing eighth in the standings.

Much like the humble magpie, shiny silverware attracts the attention of F1 teams. Good news for this Italian racer then, who bagged P3 in the Xbox One raceoff to get into the Pro Draft for 2019. If he can muster the same pace to keep in touching distance of the podium, he’s sure to have a fine event.
Consistency is key. Prisciano started his Xbox raceoff event in seventh, and that’s exactly where he ended up as he crossed the line. He made his mark around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve during that race, and will be looking to do the same at the Draft.
This Italian racer qualified for the F1 Esports Pro Draft through the DHL 50 Fastest competition. His second-fastest slot on PC shows that his home sim racing setup has paid off handsomely. A contender in the Semi-finals in 2017, and a 2018 Pro Draftee, Macri has unfinished business in F1 Esports. Sadly, an injury shortly before the 2019 Pro Draft means he is unable to travel, and so we will have just 41 racers in our two-day event.
