The inaugural eROC champion Enzo Bonito has joined Ferrari’s Esports team for the 2020 Formula 1 Esports Series.

Bonito slots in alongside the reigning F1 Esports champion David Tonizza, who took three race wins and the drivers’ title in what was Ferrari’s first season in the category in 2019.

That season, Bonito represented the McLaren Shadow outfit in F1 Esports. The team finished sixth in the constructor’s championship, while Ferrari finished as runners up to champions Red Bull.

In the drivers’ championship, Bonito finished in 12th in 2019 and 10th in 2018. His campaign last year included a second-place finish at the Circuit of the Americas, fifth around Monza and sixth around the Red Bull Ring.

Bonito’s sim racing pedigree extents far beyond the official F1 games as he finished fourth in the famous 2017 Vegas eRace, which had a record breaking $1 million jackpot. That race was held on the PC simulation game rFactor 2.

Also in the 2019 Race Of Champions, Bonito beat Formula E champion Lucas di Grassi in their head-to-head race. He’s competed in both the 2018 and 2019 editions of the event, representing the Sim Racing All Star Team.

Ferrari, along with all of the other teams, will still add one more driver to its line-up in April’s Pro Draft.

After its March 15 debut, The Race’s All-Star Esports Battle will return for its second round this weekend – follow it on our YouTube channel.
