Esteban finishes 8th at the Veloce Pro Series event

The past weekend, Esteban Gutiérrez joined the new Veloce Pro Series championship in iRacing, which brought together several drivers from Formula One, Formula E, Esports, among other categories.

The Mexican driver finished the first race in eighth place, while for the second race (with a reversed grid), he crossed the finish line in 16th place after an incident.

“There were two races that I really enjoyed, the level of competitiveness is very high, especially from the professional esports drivers, but every weekend I have been improving my times and that helped me to finish the race in the top 10.

“I drove a car that I didn’t know and for that reason it was difficult, but it is a very good training for my adaptation to different cars in the simulator”, said the Mercedes driver.

“I want to thank all the people who connected through my Twitch channel. It has been an incredible experience to be able to share these races live with them and also to interact with them during the race. I invite you to join my training sessions every Tuesday and Thursday”, he said.

Next Sunday, Esteban will participate in the second official Formula One virtual race at 20:00 hrs (BST), representing Mercedes.
