AMF1 Esports Team confirms new line-up for V10 R-League

After reaching the final of the V10 R-League in 2021, Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Esports Team returns to the series with a new-look line-up for 2022.

Manuel Biancolilla, who is already racing for the team in the SRO Esports series, will be joined by Alejandro Sanchez and Simon Weigang in V10 R-League.

Sanchez joins the team with plenty of experience, having raced in the Porsche Esports Supercup and becoming the Racing Unleashed Champion in 2021.

He also won the 2019 Piloto Michelin, which earned him the chance to test Formula 3 and GT4 cars, before racing in the Trofeo de Navidad in Jarama in January.

Weigang will be a familiar name to F1 Esports fans, having competed in the series for Haas, Renault and Alfa Romeo in previous seasons.

He broke onto the scene in F1 Esports in 2019 by scoring points in three of his four races for Renault, before switching to Haas.

Weigang was the Haas team's focal point in 2020, scoring most of its points before switching to Alfa Romeo for 2021.

With a breadth of experience across all three drivers, we have a strong combination to take on the unique V10 R-League, which will race at Silverstone, Monza, Mugello, Spa-Francorchamps and the Yas Marina Circuit.

The series comprises a unique format in which the three drivers work together across four races – all of which is explained later in this article.

The V10 R-League is one of three series that AMF1 Esports Team will compete in during 2022, alongside SRO Esports and the F1 Esports Pro Championship.

Explained: V10 R-League

Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Esports Team has a strong record in the V10 R-League and will return once again for 2022.

The series features one of the most unique formats in Esports, so we're bringing you the inside line ahead of the season opener.

The V10 R-League has a format somewhat like football. The 10 teams are split into two leagues before the campaign, with the top teams from the two leagues then entering a play-off phase to decide the ultimate champion.

The football connection continues with a 'home and away' format designed to ensure teams race across all five circuits (Silverstone, Mugello, Monza, Spa-Francorchamps and Yas Marina) rather than stick to the same preferred track for a performance advantage.

With four races in a single match, the teams each choose a track, with each team able to veto a circuit too.

The four races are split across team and relay events. The team races involve three versus three as all drivers compete.

The team with the best combined results then takes the match point.

In relay races, drivers take it in turns. Each driver must complete a stint before handing over to his team-mate, with the first team to finish taking the point.

The team that wins the most match points across the four races takes the overall win.

It's an action-packed format where all three drivers play a key part in success.

With a driver line-up of Biancolilla, Sanchez and Weigang, AMF1 Esports Team has all the experience required to push for success again in 2022.
