English Brendon leigh became the first champion in the history of the F1 eSports Series, the official virtual tournament of the F1, after winning the grand final that took place in Abu Dhabi in the previous one of the GP of the Maximum disputed in Yas Marina.
Leigh, an 18-year-old kitchen helper born in Reading, he won the title thanks to an overtaking on the last lap that snatched the victory from the Italian Fabrizio Donoso.

Sven Zurner completed the last step of the podium.
