American Formula One team Haas have announced their driver line-up for the 2022 F1 Esports Series Pro Championship. The American team will be represented by Matthijs van Erven, Thomas Ronhaar and Piotr Stachulec.
Haas will continue to work with former Formula One driver Romain Grosjean’s R8G Esports, who manages operations and also offers guidance to the team.
Romain Grosjean, Founder, R8G Esports, commented:
“We’re heading into our second season of Formula 1 Esports with Haas F1 Team. We knew the 2021 season was a year to learn and it was tough, but our progress at the end of the season was positive enough to prove we can do it. We’ve kept working behind the scenes since the end of 2021. Now, we’re all focused on being one of the main surprises of the season, with a great renewed roster. Formula 1 Esports is so competitive, the tension is so high, and the gaps are so close that we know we will have to give 100 percent to every moment on track. Let’s race!“
Thomas Ronhaar, 2022 F1 Esports Series Pro Exhibition winner, added:
“It’s key to learn and develop in the first few rounds, reflect on how the sessions went and learn from every error I make. Only then will we be able to optimise our set-ups, strategy and teamwork. Hopefully, with this mindset, I will be able to score a good amount of points to fight with the top drivers during the season. My goal this season is to finish at the very front. It’s not going to be an easy task, but I’m going give it my all to get as high up the rankings as possible.“
Piotr Stachulec, 2022 F1 Esports Challenger Series runner-up, said:
“I’m looking forward to representing the Haas F1 Esports Team in the F1 Esports Series Pro Championship. We’ve been working hard since the release of the game, and I believe that we can be really competitive this year.“
Matthijs van Erven, Haas F1 Team Esports driver, stated:
“Going into 2022 with the 2021 season experience under my belt is something important. I’m look forward to this second season with Haas and I’ll do my best to reward that trust. There are lots of things to learn once again, as this year but it’s a very exciting prospect.“
The twelve-round F1 Esports Series Pro Championship 2022 gets underway from September 14 and will last till December 16.
