Controversy reigns at Formula 1 Esports event

Mercedes drivers dominated a Formula 1 Esports competition in London on Wednesday (October 31).Former Formula 1 driver Jolyon Palmer and Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner were in attendance at the Gfinity Arena to see Mercedes drivers Brendon Leigh and Daniel Bereznay dominate the event.19-year-old former kitchen porter Leigh and winner of the first Esports championship in Abu Dhabi last November before teams got involved, entered Wednesday’s event with a sizable lead having won two of the opening three races of the season. Leigh won the first race of the day but it was in the second round that his battle with Toro Rosso’s Frederik Rasmussen for first place got heated on the track.Rasmussen had overtaken Leigh towards the end of the race, but as the Brit tried to retake the lead he made contact with his rival. It was a move that clearly frustrated Leigh, who eventually finished first despite the tense finish.Leigh, who has gone fully professional and shed 20 kilos since a title win that changed his life, finished fifth in the final race set in Belgium.
