F1 Esports Race for the World: Start time, live stream, driver line-up for virtual race

A host of Formula 1 stars, led by Charles Leclerc, have launched an Esports series called Race for the World. With the F1 season on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, drivers have been taking part in virtual races.

The Race for the World series will be staged on three nights over the next week.

The first event takes place this evening, with the additional races being held on Tuesday, April 14, and Friday, April 17.

The aim of the initiative is to raise money to contribute to the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Upon the announcement of the Esports series, Leclerc said: “So happy to make this happen.

“We all need to be united in this and to see all of this group coming together for one cause feels great.”

The initiative hopes to raise $100,000 and donations can be made here.

The Race for the World series will be conducted using the official F1 2019 game, with the circuit for each event to be determined at random before the start.

What time does the Race for the World start?

The Esports race gets underway at 6pm BST.
