Unbeatable George Russell?

The Williams driver has been the star of the Virtual GPs, showing off his talent on the F1 game and winning the last 5 Virtual GPs he's been a part of.

Last weekend he was only able to claim victory thanks to a penalty for Alex Albon, so maybe he's not totally invincible.

ON THE CHARGE: Russell was able to work his way past Albon on track, but the Red Bull driver got him back on the last lap

This weekend Russell will be back on the grid along with Albon, who won here in last year's Virtual GP, and the two seem set to battle it out for victory once again.

Fittipaldi's push for the top

Enzo and Pietro Fittipaldi have shown off their pace in these Virtual GPs. The junior drivers look set to have a bright future ahead of them and they've pushed Haas to the top of the standings.

REPEAT PERFORMANCE: Can the Fittipaldis power Haas to the very top?

While Russell and Albon are fierce competition, can they do enough to retain the top spot and give Haas the biggest slice of the prize fund for their charity?

Another famous name

As if having Fittipaldis on the grid wasn't enough, Nicolas Prost, son of four-time F1 champion Alain Prost, will be racing for Alpine this weekend.

A former Formula E and World Endurace Championship driver, Prost has a 24 hours of Le Mans victory to his name so he's no slouch!
