Leclerc, Norris and Russell at the start of official virtual Formula 1 race

The first virtual race may have been a big flop with only Lando Norris at the start as official driver, but next Sunday's race seems a lot more serious than the previous attempt, with no less than five F1 drivers at the start.

No, this time not Nico Hulkenberg who is announced as the big name, but the bigger men from F1. A Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel won't join in so quickly, but the fact that this time F1 has as many as five official drivers is commendable.

Five F1 drivers

On Sunday Charles Leclerc, Alexander Albon, Lando Norris, George Russell and Nicholas Latifi will appear at the start of the race. There will also be well-known talents at the start of the race with Christian Lundgaard, Louis Deletraz and Pietro Fittipaldi. Just like last time, however, there are also experienced people taking part in the race.

Johnny Herbert is trying to improve his 13th place in the first race during the second race in Australia and also Anthony Davidson will be back at the start. The race will be held at the Melbourne circuit on Sunday as the Vietnamese GP is not yet available for the F1 2019 game.

The race will start Sunday at 19:00(UTC) and can be followed on the channels of Formula 1.
