Forward of the second spherical of races for this yr’s Professional Sequence, we additionally caught up with three of the competitors’s stars to get their ideas in regards to the upcoming season. Please be at liberty to make use of these feedback in editorial across the build-up to Occasion 2.


Marcel Kiefer

On visiting the Pink Bull Efficiency Centre in October

Marcel: “I’ve been to the Pink Bull Efficiency Centre with the workforce. It was a very nice expertise, as a result of we received to know extra stuff about all the opposite areas that we don’t normally cowl in our Esports coaching, just like the bodily actions, scheduling and the way vital it’s to sleep and get bodily workouts that may actually improve your efficiency. It helped us so much, and I believe it already reveals we’re in place for the season.”

Who to be careful for when it comes to rivals

Marcel: “I believe Alfa Romeo positively. I imply we already knew that Alfa Romeo can be good this yr. I anticipated Mercedes to be stronger, however perhaps they may bounce again from the primary occasion as a result of it didn’t go that nicely for them. Alpha Tauri have been additionally fairly strong. Renault appears actually sturdy this yr. I believe we’re in a very shut season and Ferrari in all probability folks anticipated them to be a bit stronger. However in addition they had technical difficulties in the course of the first occasion, so we don’t know. I believe Alfa is the massive shock. They made an enormous step from final yr.”

On their probabilities to win the title

Marcel: “I believe we are able to win each the Drivers and Workforce championship. We’ve a strong pair with me and Freddie. And I’ve already confirmed I can battle up there. And everyone knows Freddie can do it. So yeah, I consider we have now what it takes for each titles. Clearly, the main target is on the Workforce championship, as a result of we’re already Workforce Champions from final yr and we need to hold that title. But when it doesn’t work out, we are going to simply reapproach subsequent yr, simply attempt to enhance different areas. I imply, it’s so tight that you simply can’t even be mad should you lose, you clearly need to win. However everybody’s so good. All of them work extremely exhausting all groups. So in the event that they win, they deserve it.”


Dani Bereznay

On making ready for Occasion 2 of the season

Dani: “We’ve had so much much less time to arrange in comparison with what we had forward of the primary occasion. I don’t suppose the sphere will probably be as tight because it was [last time] as individuals who adapt quicker to the brand new circuits can have an even bigger benefit. I’m fairly assured that we’re those to beat forward of the second occasion however Pink Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, even the Williams guys, look fairly sturdy. Alpha Tauri and Renault included. To get within the prime 10 will probably be actually troublesome.”

On predominant rivals for the title

Dani: “I believe it’s good to be the workforce to beat however Alpha Tauri with Joni Tormala and Pink Bull with Marcel Kiefer and Frederik Rasmussen are an insanely quick pair. Additionally, Ferrari with Enzo Bonito and the previous champion, David Tonizza, are actually large threats. When you see the timings and never simply the outcomes, there may be most one tenth of a second that separates us from many of the subject. It’s mainly one apex, one little mistake, and the championship can flip the wrong way up fairly shortly. That’s why esports is so good! We positively don’t deal with it like we’ve already received and we positively received’t let off because the others are tremendous motivated.”

On esports drivers making errors

Dani: “The gaps are fairly small in esports and it’s loopy to look at as a result of we as drivers bear in mind each single mistake of our laps. There are some errors which can be inevitable, however there are some minor inaccuracies in our driving that we get pissed off about. What separates Jarno [Opmeer] from different drivers is that what he can do in a observe session he can just about replicate in the actual life factor which is actually exhausting because the strain is so excessive.”

On his relationship with teammate Jarno

Dani: “It’s actually vital for me [to have a partner like Jarno]. I believe we are able to push one another and the factor is with f1 esports is that we don’t know any of the opposite groups lap instances. So to have a aggressive teammate units benchmark as a result of when you have a slower teammate and you might be beating him by one or two tenth of a second per lap you don’t know what sort of degree you’re at. However with Jarno, should you’re beating him, you’re mainly beating all the highest guys. I believe we push one another ahead and set a reasonably nice benchmark on what might be the precise lap instances. I need him to carry out nicely and I need to carry out nicely myself. In fact I need to end in entrance but when I end second then I need it to be my teammate reasonably than somebody from one other workforce.”


Cedric Thome

On what he learnt from former teammate Jarno Opmeer

Cedric: “Jarno is speedy, he’s superb. He was actually fast final yr as nicely however he had some moments the place he was actually unfortunate. He’s doing a tremendous job [this year], he’s first within the championship and he deserves to be the place he’s.”

On his ardour for darts

Cedric: “Sure, I like darts and clearly with us racing from residence this yr I’ve a board in my room so if I can throw a number of [darts]. I really feel prefer it’s likelihood to free your thoughts and simply throw some darts. It doesn’t actually assist my focus for F1.”
