Thomas Ronhaar of the Haas F1 Esports Team secured a thrilling second win of 2022 in Round 7, overtaking Bari Boroumand on the penultimate lap to clinch another victory in his debut season. Ronhaar won the race by increasing his lead over Boroumand.
Ronhaar used a different strategy to others around him in order to qualify in third place. He aimed for the mediums early on in the race, which allowed him to easily beat those who started on the hards while outlasting those who started on the softs.
Round 6 of the F1 Esports Series Pro Championship was won by Blakeley thanks to his dominant performance in Zandvoort.
When he pitted for hard tyres on Lap 11 of 27, he emerged with a slim lead over second-place man Bari Boroumand, a duality that would prove to be a tug-of-war over the remaining race distance. When he pitted for soft tyres on Lap 11 of 27, he emerged with a slim lead over second-place man Bari Boroumand.
Boroumand made his move on Lap 24, partly seizing the lead on the grass on the run down to Variante Rettifilo, but his maneuver left him susceptible for the last laps of the race, which were very important. That would prove to be his downfall, as Ronhaar would go on to win the race by passing him on the very last lap in the last DRS zone, which was located below the old banking.
Intense competition for the win on the last lap of the F1 Esports race at Monza!
After being passed and then knocked into a half-spin at the first turn, poleman Nicolas Longuet followed them home in third position. He had started off in first place.
