F2 Virtual Racing is back and Arthur Leclerc is the driver with a perfect record having swept the first round at Bahrain – with two wins, two poles, two fastest laps and a perfect score. The PREMA Racing driver is the man to beat, but there’s a whole host of names gearing up to take him on in Round 2, which takes place this afternoon at a virtual Barcelona.
Using the F2 cars on Codemasters’ F1 2019, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will play host to 19 racers from FIA F2 and F3 at 1600 BST/1500 UTC on May 10, and you can watch all the action in the video above.
There are a few changes to the entry list (scroll down for the full grid), with Jack Doohan stepping in for Carlin, broadcaster Davide Valsecchi taking over from Christian Lundgaard for ART Grand Prix, and Sean Gelael replacing Calan Williams at DAMS.
Leclerc’s PREMA team mate for this race will be Sebastian Montoya while Sophia Floersch will make her Virtual F2 debut for Campos Racing. As in the first round, BWT HWA RACELAB will enter only one car – in memory of Anthoine Hubert.
