F1 Esports 2023 Qualifying Now Open!

F1 Esports 2023 Qualifying Now Open!

February 1, 2023

It’s time to charge up your controllers and dust off your racing wheels – qualifying for the 2023 F1 Esports Challengers is now open!

Running from February 1-14, owners of F1 22 on PlayStation, Xbox and PC will have to complete an in-game scenario and score as many points as possible to be in with a shout. The scenario in question places you in the cockpit of Lando Noirris’ McLaren. The Briton finished his home race in sixth place, and your task is to climb higher, re-writing the history books. To pass the scenario, you have to get past Fernando Alonso and Charles Leclerc to finish at least fourth. After that, the possibilities are endless!

Challengers is our official qualification route into the big time. As ever, you’ll be scored based on clean driving, how many assists you use, use of flashbacks, and your overall race time. There’s no secret formula here – just finish as high as possible, and in the shortest time to give yourself the best shot of making it through!

Make sure you’re signed up to participate, and that your gaming account is linked to F1 Esports, otherwise your efforts might count for nothing. Simply head to the sign-up section on the F1 Esports site to make the connection, and you’ll be added to our leaderboards once you complete the scenario! You have until 11:59 PM, GMT, on February 14 to register an effort, so put any Valentine’s Day plans on ice for now…

The strongest drivers will be invited to our qualification pathway later this year, but don’t despair if you don’t make the cut – as a second scenario is available starting on February 15. More details are set to follow on this one, so keep your eyes peeled on social and watch out for in-game updates on F1 22.

The qualification pathway is your very real shot at making it big – and it all starts with you booting up the game at home.

More details will follow about the qualifying championship and second event, but for now, get out on track and show us what you can do!
