About Sauber Esports

It is worth noting that Sauber Esports is the official Esports team of the Alfa Romeo Orlen team. Sauber Esports recently unveiled three riders for the 2022 campaign.  

The 2022 F1 Esports Series is the sixth season of the competition. This year’s Esports Formula One series will be held in F1’s official 2022 game. 

Last year’s driver’s and team titles were won by Jarno Opmeer and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team, respectively. Interestingly, Sauber Esports is looking to win this year’s campaign, after introducing three new drivers. 

“Alfa had a tough 2021 campaign, scoring 12 points over the 12 races and finishing ninth in the team standings. But with two bona fide household names and one of the brightest young talents in simulated racing in the ranks, there’s no reason the squad can’t ascend the tables this season,” Alfa noted in an announcement today. 

This year’s campaign is expected to commence by the end of next month. “There will be one event per month – September, October, November & the finals in December – 3 days per event,” Floki Inu added. 

Here is the timeline for #F1Esports format for the 2022 season:

Pre-season test – End of August 2022.
There will be one event per month – September, October, November & the finals in December – 3 days per event.

The exact dates will be revealed later, follow us to stay updated!
