Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport has today announced the launch of its own Esports team. Based at the premises of the Formula One team in Brackley, the newly founded Esports team is called Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports. It will compete in the F1 Esports Series 2018, which will take place in October and November of this year.
The team has recruited four top eracing talents to compete in the F1 Esports Series. British gamer Brendon Leigh, winner of last year’s inaugural F1 Esports Series, will compete alongside his compatriot Harry Jacks, holder of numerous league titles.
Patryk Krutyj from Poland, who won four league titles in his home country, and the Hungarian Dani Bereznay, who was selected by the team in the F1 Esports Pro Draft a few weeks ago, complete the gamer line-up.
