Technical Requirements for participating in the F1 Esports World Tournament

The following are the main requirements for participating in the world F1 Esports tournament. Organizing Esports tournaments is now often done by online games, including the Formula 1 racing game which is often called a land jet race.

F1 Esports Tournament is held by the Codemaster game developer who has received an official license and also collaborates with Liberty Media, as the licensee. That way this competition is also included in the overall Formula 1 agenda.

From the qualification process to the final round of the F1 Esports tournament, all of it was broadcast live by Formula 1 in various media. As in the Youtube channel, Twitch, and other media publications that are owned by Formula 1.

Before proceeding to the main competition or Pro Series Season / Pro Draft which gathers all drivers from various worlds in one place, each player must pass the qualification stage. The qualification process was not short, at the F1 Esports 2020 event held for approximately 7 months (July 2019 - January 2020).

that time is the same as half of the F1 racing season that has its back. But this makes sense because with so many players registering all over the world, the selection process will automatically take longer.

In addition, the organizer must also hold selections on 3 different game consoles, namely PS4, XBOX, and PC.

As explained above, for the F1 Esports 2020 competition has been completed and for F1 Esports 2021 the qualification process has now begun. So you still have plenty of time to prepare for the next competition, F1 Esports 2022.
