BIO

Cem impressed in last year’s F1 Esports final, taking the chequered flag in a tense race around the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. He’s not only made a name for himself in the F1 Esports Series, though, he’s also taken part in the iRacing World Championship Series.

A: I think the extra qualities I have off the track, like fitness, interviews, media appearances. The things you need to be successful off the track. I believe I can use all these to take the pressure off when racing and focus 100% on what I do and perform at my best even when I am not racing from home.
