In the world of competitive esports, Formula 1 racing takes the seating and controller arrangements to the next level with customer racing chairs, steering wheel peripherals, and of course pedals. The first-ever Formula 1 Esports Series Finals will take place in Abu Dhabi on November 24 and 25, forming part of the 2017 FORMULA 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

With twenty F1 esports drivers competing for the crown. Here are a few images from the semi-finals held at London’s Gfinity Esports Arena.







In Abu Dhabi next month, after the three-race event concluded, the first Formula 1 Esports Series Champion will be crowned. Onn the same weekend as the final 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix too. The winner will be the Formula 1 Esports Champion Expert for 2018, automatically qualify for the semi-finals next year, and also become a character in the F1 2018 game.
 
F1 2017 is available now.

Laugh if someone just wants to use their PS4 controller.

I absolutely insist that a wheel is not the most efficient control mechanism for driving games - a stick is. You get wayyyyy more precise control over input.

Depends on the wheel and the game.

id rather drive a car with the controller than a wheel, certainly more precise on the controller.

Depends on what the goal is, for people who are big into simracing its about re-creating the feeling of actually driving the car, so wheel and pedals and all that get you much closer than a stick or a controller does. They don't want it to be easier, they want it to be closer to realistic. If you're just a gamer at home playing Gran Turismo on your PS4 then yeah, that setup isn't really gonna be the best way to play for the vast majority of people

I found Project Cars on the XBONE didn't really favour controllers. Nothing I could do got the setup right.
