Brendon Leigh

‘We stayed behind our own expectations this year, which is disappointing. But we’ve learned a lot throughout the season which will make us stronger in the long run.’, said Brendon. ‘We will work hard to improve in every area for 2020. Congratulations to David Tonizza – well done on winning the title.’

Patryk Krutyj

‘The F1 Esports season didn’t go too well for us, we have a lot of lessons to learn from this year. It just makes us more and more motivated to come back stronger next year.’, Patryk says. ‘I’m happy to have competed in most of the races this season, stepping up my game compared to last year. At the same time, I’m confident I will be able to improve even more, building on the learnings of this season’.

Daniel Shields

‘This was not the season we had hoped for. However, I learned a lot, which I’m really grateful for. In this last Live Show of the season I got the chance to compete in my second ever F1 Esports race, and it went a lot better than the first time around. I made a few good overtakes, but starting from the back, it was hard to get to the front. It was a good season in terms of enjoyment, but of course we had hoped for more. Hopefully we can put everything together, going into the new season.’, Daniel added.
