Open only to female competitors, the racers will compete in the F1 2020 game in the first week of May to determine who is the fastest.

The fastest qualifier will then go through to the Pro Exhibition in May, where the 10 F1 Esports teams will be able to select from a pool of the fastest sim racers in the world.
