Esports for Renault 

F1’s first foray into esports was hugely successful and saw the crowning of F1’s first esports champion, Brendon Leigh, at the end of last year. Throughout the season McLaren also held its own esports competition, World’s Fastest Gamer. The winner of that competition was Dutchman Rudy van Buren, who was named McLaren’s F1 simulator driver as a result. Van Buren and Brendon Leigh competed in January’s Race of Champions alongside some of motor racing’s biggest names.

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso last year launched a team of his own, FA Racing. Renault’s news came the same day a new esports competition was announced for rally cross, using the game DiRT 4.
