In the world of competitive esports, Formula 1 racing takes the seating and controller arrangements to the next level with customer racing chairs, steering wheel peripherals, and of course pedals. The first-ever Formula 1 Esports Series Finals will take place in Abu Dhabi on November 24 and 25, forming part of the 2017 FORMULA 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
With twenty F1 esports drivers competing for the crown. Here are a few images from the semi-finals held at London’s Gfinity Esports Arena.
In Abu Dhabi next month, after the three-race event concluded, the first Formula 1 Esports Series Champion will be crowned. Onn the same weekend as the final 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix too. The winner will be the Formula 1 Esports Champion Expert for 2018, automatically qualify for the semi-finals next year, and also become a character in the F1 2018 game.
F1 2017 is available now.
Laugh if someone just wants to use their PS4 controller.
Depends on the wheel and the game.
id rather drive a car with the controller than a wheel, certainly more precise on the controller.
I absolutely insist that a wheel is not the most efficient control mechanism for driving games - a stick is. You get wayyyyy more precise control over input.
Depends on what the goal is, for people who are big into simracing its about re-creating the feeling of actually driving the car, so wheel and pedals and all that get you much closer than a stick or a controller does. They don't want it to be easier, they want it to be closer to realistic. If you're just a gamer at home playing Gran Turismo on your PS4 then yeah, that setup isn't really gonna be the best way to play for the vast majority of people
