– After the first two events at the Gfinity Esports Arena, Scuderia Toro Rosso were second behind Mercedes – fuelled by Rasmussen’s form that saw him second behind driver leader Brendon Leigh – with Red Bull third.

– The third and final 2018 event in England’s capital saw the players take on iconic Formula 1 circuits in Germany, Singapore, USA and Abu Dhabi.

– Red Bull’s Joni Tormala grabbed a podium in the Hockenheim opener with Scuderia Toro Rosso‘s Holzmann third at The Circuit of the Americas.

– Briton Leigh wrapped up his second drivers’ title in a row from team-mate Daniel Bereznay in second with Scuderia Toro Rosso second behind Mercedes in the team standings and Red Bull a creditable sixth overall.

– Rasmussen said: “2018 was quite successful for the team as we finished second in the Constructors’ Championship. Personally, I grabbed third position in the Drivers’ Championship which I’m proud of.”

–  Holzmann added: “Austin was a good race for me as I started fourth and was able to overtake Frederik. It was a clean drive and I was able to defend well to end up in P3. The whole series as a team was really good. We can be proud of what we have achieved.”
