The fifth round of the Formula 1 World Championship returned to Spain, home of winter testing, at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Amid rumours the Spanish round could be dropped to make way for new venues in 2020, all eyes were on Ferrari to see if they could recapture their stunning pre-season form and end Mercedes record-breaking streak. Find out what played out in Spain, and what it meant for RRL Fantasy F1 players...
FR X-90 looks set to be an imminent addition to the open-wheelers; WTCR update; BMW M1 Group 4; HUD improvements; live penalties; new tracks etc! It's all in the latest developer notes of Sector3!
Chills n' Thrills provided an electrifying start to 2019 as 6 driver titles were contested across 4 championships. Our RaceRoom series would tour the USA in a gruelling Group 5 championship; WTCR had its much-anticipated inauguration and the GTR1 & GTR4 classes illuminated S27. rFactor2 would host the season's 2nd multiclass series utilising content from the notable S397 Endurance Pack.
At the end of 8 rounds, 5 drivers would take their place in our Hall of Fame. Peter Bakus, a double champion in CnT, took his tally to 3 driver titles - the same number as Damien Laurent who dominated S27 GTR4 and Robert Horvath who impressed in S26 WTCR. In rF2, Mikko Korkiakoski secured his 1st RRL driver title and Reinhard Berger became our most decorated driver taking his 4th accolade in the GTE class.
