On Sunday night hosted the second event in our new F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series – this time featuring six current Formula 1 drivers and a host of others stars as well.

After the Bahrain Virtual Grand Prix two weeks ago, this time the drivers were battling each other around the Australian Grand Prix's Albert Park track in Melbourne, on Codemasters' brilliant F1 2019 game.

There was a qualifying session, followed by a 29-lap race, and you can watch all the action in the video replay above.

Current F1 aces Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, George Russell, Lando Norris, Nicholas Latifi and Antonio Giovinazzi were joined by Leclerc's younger brother Arthur, 2009 world champion Jenson Button, sim racer Jimmy Broadbent and even England’s Cricket World Cup Winner, BBC Sports Personality of the Year and Red Bull athlete Ben Stokes on the virtual track.

See below for the full grid of drivers taking part, and watch the video above to see how it all played out – and who took the victory...
