The Williams Esports Team
Williams is one of the world's leading Formula 1 teams, its beginnings go back to the 1960s. With Williams Esports, Williams was the first Formula 1 team to establish an Esports offshoot under the leadership of Steven English and Javier Guerra in May 2018, in order to compete in the up-and-coming virtual motorsport. The first three signed drivers in the team were Javier Perez, Jani Vitsaniemi and Bernardo Perez. In the meantime, 26 drivers are already on the road for Williams. In terms of training, the Williams Sim racers benefit from special privileges: In addition to access to the team plant in Oxfordshire, UK, for training and events, the Esports team is also allowed to train on high-tech simulators together with technical staff and the Formula 1 drivers.
