This is a massive opportunity to make e-sports history and something worth watching!!! Put the driver's points towards the championship and omit the constructors. Surely this is better than no F1 at all?

I don't think there is any more point to this, if the race is simulated, then it never actually happened, so the points mean nothing. If a race has a good reason to be cancelled, i don't think it is that urgent that there must be some kind of replacement.

It would be meaningless and not representative of anything much... but I'd still quite like to see them all do quali & the full race in a sim. Give them equal machinery and it could all be a bit of fun, no points involved. I'm sure Kimi wouldn't care for it and there are lots of reasons not to do it but damn it, it's March 12th and I want to see some track action.

Lando and Max would dominate it, along with maybe some of the other young drivers. It's a neat idea, but it would be totally unrepresentative.

Nice idea. Wouldn't interest me in the least but would be a novelty and a distraction I guess. Only thing is it might set a precedent....

I love this idea, not for points but just for entertainment. I think it could be fun. And perhaps there is an online way for fans to race against the drivers simulations.

Well, the OP said to award the drivers actual points, so you'd have to hope it would be representative in that scenario...

Could be quite hilarious to watch, especially if we get to hear what the drivers are saying.... 👍 I’ll be watching for sure.

I'm curious which drivers will participate. I'd be surprised if Lewis, Seb and Kimi take part, maybe Bottas and Grosjean as well. I can't see them being massively into it. But you'd assume that a lot of the younger drivers would all be involved.

It's actually quite interesting so long as you don't take the racing too seriously.

With me being like I am, I really struggle to imagine things. I couldn't really watch and enjoy real drivers competing something that I would describe as totally fake as it isn't actually happening. May look impressive, but this is just my view on it.

I watched an esports F1 race the other day, with proper commentary, and after the first five minutes I forgot it was virtual.

I think it was this one:

Edit to add: all drivers in equal machinery can't be a bad thing.

Interestingly enough…

"Formula One has launched a Virtual Racing Series to fill the delay to the 2020 season caused by the coronavirus pandemic."

Scroll down here for a more thorough read: https://www.espn.com/f1/story/_/id/2892 ... oned-races

I wouldn't normally watch it but being starved of any kind of sporting entertainment like I said before it's just a nice filler, of course at the end of the day it doesn't mean that much, it's little more than a video game.

It looks real up to the point that cars start hitting one another and crashing into one another, then it starts to look a bit ridiculous.

Virtual GT racing at Monza next weekend. Could be a bit of fun and it's on Assetto Corsa which is often regarded as the best in terms of driving realism.

Yeah the racing I watched yesterday didn't have great graphics so it didn't feel real at all.

Yet you don't have a problem with drivers who are not average in size driving 100% bespoke cars that are illegal on the road, driven on tracks that are also bespoke and are surrounded by advertising, drive many laps and go nowhere while burning fuels the average person can never obtain??

I don't understand this at all. it almost comes a across as being a bit unreasonable towards my comment. I could have worded it more nicely than saying totally fake, but the truth is, it isn't reality as it actually never happens. You could potentially simulate a cure for this virus that seems to work, but that wouldn't mean anything.

I may be different to others, but I just struggle to watch imaginary things that are supposed to be like the real thing.

I play Assetto Coras myself and the physics are incredible. They are working on the graphics but chose to go for accurate game play as a priority.

The competizione update comes to Xbox and PS4 in June so, as an Xbox owner, I can't wait for that. It looks amazing on PC.

ACC looks great. iRacing looks its age, which is quite old in computer terms.

I've seen that too, but I've never come across it when playing myself. I don't know if it's an issue with the reply modes or live streaming.

I'd rather not. I've tried to watch the races put in place of the actual races and I found them really boring. It's not the same.

Stick a 14yr old in the game and they would run away with it, clearly a virtual race has no meaning at all.

Lando's up to fun again. He is racing some lucky fans! He really seems to already be breaking the mould of F1 drivers.

Hear to youtube and search #challengelando
