Ben’s Virtual GP Debut

Ben Stokes held off former F1 driver Johnny Herbert for most of the Virtual Vietnam GP last night. In Ben’s virtual GP debut, Herbert passed the Aston Martin Red Bull as the race reached its climax.

As the chequered flag fell on the 28 lap race, Ben recorded a last place finish.

Ben’s limited practice time and racing against seasoned F1 and sim drivers was always going to present a stiff challenge.

Elsewhere, Ben today begins a six week home exercise diary in the Mirror newspaper.
