Fernando Alonso gets into trouble. IRacing players accuse him of having deliberately collided with an opponent during the course of a race in the famous simulator. Also, one of the users uses the replay system to capture the moment.
The clip, which you can see at the top of this news, is provided by Tygrysmati on Twitch. The author centers the camera on the back of Alonso’s car, which appears in green throughout the game. After receiving an overtaking on the outside of the blue car, the Asturian faces the curve at the end of the straight, as always. The problem is that it does not seem to slow down, or it does it too late, which leads to back ramming the car in front.
Both vehicles hit the Daytona tires, losing the trail of the peloton. Given the relevance of iRacing careers, we do not know if an investigation will be opened to clarify the event. What is clear, especially for those of you who do not know the simulator, is that the pilot is the real Fernando Alonso. All players must run with their real identification; it goes beyond a video game.
Regarding the personal situation of the pilot, Alonso prepares for his return to the great Formula 1 circus. He will do it at the wheel of Alpine’s A521, Renault’s project in this transition of his long-standing team in the competition, together with the Frenchman Esteban Ocon. The Asturian already rolled a week ago aboard other Renault cars from previous seasons, such as the RS18. Luca de Meo, CEO of the French brand, has ambitious plans with the brand.
Not surprisingly, active drivers like Alonso have been turning upside down in online competition lately. Last year we read the sensations of Andy Soucek, a Spanish GT driver for Bentley, as he got behind the wheel of Race trim: “I notice everything on the track on the steering wheel,” he explained to Game Time.
