The 40 fastest F1™ 2017 players who will go head-to-head for a place in the F1® Esports Series Grand Final have been confirmed.
Following the completion of the two online qualifying scenarios, 30 players on XBL, PSN and Steam raced their way into the live Semi-Final, which will be held at the Gfinity Arena in London on October 10.
