Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will take tips from Lando Norris from McLaren before the pair march for a virtual Formula One grand prix around the Monaco street circuit on Sunday.
The half-distance race, with racers racing from home using simulators, will be around the virtual version of the tight and winding street circuits on the day the canceled grand prix will occur.
The F1 season and the Premier League were arrested because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Two F1 racers will make their esports debuts too, with Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas and Renault Esteban Ocon taking part for the first time. They will join the regular series, Norris, George Russell, Nicholas Latifi, Charles Leclerc, Antonio Giovinazzi, and Alex Albon.
Gabon international Aubemayang is the latest in a line of high profile soccer players who make guest appearances in the virtual race series on the official F1 2019 video game against the original F1 racer.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero takes part in Previous virtual Spanish Grand Prix, along with Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Barcelona player Arthur Melo, while AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli also appeared.
“You should be good, you will be faster,” Norris laughed at Aubameyang, who played for AS Monaco in 2010-11, in a video clip posted by McLaren on Twitter.
Welcome to the team. @ Aubameyang7! 🤝

“It’s a bit difficult but I try to train every day,” the striker said. “Some turns are really very difficult.”
“Yes, they chose the path that is the most difficult for you to follow. Monaco is not at all easy,” answered Norris, before Aubameyang asked for time for them to train together.
“To be honest, I am free every day,” said the Arsenal player. “I was training but then I had all day. That morning I was definitely not there. But obviously I need advice on virtual things … I need your help, friend.”
Aubameyang, top scorer with the Premier League in 2018-19 and Arsenal’s leading marksman this season, does not need the help of at least the youngest F1 F1 racer when it comes to his own job.
