While Lando Norris and Max Verstappen's exploits on iRacing may have dominated headlines this week with regard to F1 Esport news, it may have gone under the radar that the official F1 Esports series is set to return for the 2019 season.

In his announcement as Team Principle for Alfa Romeo Esports, YouTuber aarava had the opportunity to meet, race and interview veteran Kimi Räikkönen, who has returned to the team that gave him a chance in 2001!

You can see how the race between them went in the video! Did it go the way it thought it would?

Kimi wasn't very positive about the game mechanics. He thought it was much easier to drive the real thing. 🙂

He really did seem to struggle with it! He definitely prefers a racing wheel over a joypad Laughing

Also I don't think there is a worse candidate on the current grid to try a racing game with a controller... Other than Vettel maybe? Laughing out loud
