Formula E drivers have embraced The Race’s All-Star Esports battle which takes place at 1.00pm UK time.

Five past and current Formula E race drivers will join Max Verstappen and Simon Pagenaud  along with some of the biggest names in Esports in the specially organised The Race event on Sunday afternoon.

The event will be available to stream live on The Race’s YouTube channel.

Current points leader Antonio Felix da Costa has committed to the race calling it “great fun.”

Da Costa will be joined by inaugural Formula E champion Nelson Piquet Jr, who is contesting the race from his native Brazil.

Santiago E-Prix winner and new BMW factory driver Max Gunther is on the grid and will show his Esports mettle against BMW’s manufacturer rival Porsche’s Formula E driver Neel Jani.

Felix Rosenqvist, who should have been competing at the now postponed St Petersburg Indycar opener, is a two times E-Prix winner with Mahindra, and joins the grid where he will do battle with former Formula 3 rival Verstappen.

Additionally, Mercedes EQ test and reserve driver Daniel Juncadellla will also go racing after securing his place on the grid on Saturday.
