Hear from McLaren Shadow drivers Lucas Blakeley, Bari Boroumand, and Wilson Hughes after the second event of the F1 Esports Series Pro Championship 2022.
“Event 2 was great on many fronts, but one of the biggest areas was how we collaborated together and how our teamwork improved every single day we were training together. The results for the team this event were fantastic, with Bari’s win at Belgium and our 1-2 in Zandvoort. Picking up my third win of the year gives us a lot to be positive about heading into the second half of the season."
“Event 2 was amazing. Getting my first win in the F1 Esports Series at the MTC [McLaren Technology Centre] was crazy and to get a 1-2 in Zandvoort as well makes Event 2 even more incredible. Now time to recharge and get ready for Event 3 where we will continue to give it our all.”
“Starting Event 2, we struggled in Austria but quickly bounced back to take back-to-back wins with Bari and Lucas and a 1-2 in Zandvoort. This has given the team an amazing atmosphere and one we want to carry throughout the season. Heading into Event 3 means there’s not much time to rest with it being the shortest gap between events. So, we will make sure we are on top of everything that we need to be.”
Lucas is first in the Drivers’ Championship on 110 points. Bari is third on 70 points. In the Constructors' Championship, McLaren Shadow sit at the top of the table on 180 points.
Event 3 will take place 2-4 November with the team racing in Monza, Mexico, and Austin.
