McLaren chooses Aubameyang to compete for them in virtual Formula 1

It isn’t news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a car enthusiast as the Gabonese striker has spent much of his fortune acquiring the latest models of several elite car brands.

He has one of the most impressive fleets of cars owned by a footballer and it should come as little surprise that he has been chosen to compete in the Virtual Monaco GP that is scheduled for this weekend.

Motor Sports Week reports that the Arsenal captain would be one of the competitors in the event that would be virtual and he has been chosen to represent McLaren.

The official F1 2019 video game would host the event as Formula 1 looks to keep their fans happy after seeing so many of their live events either postponed or cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This weekend would have seen the competition visit Monaco, but they have had to cancel the event because of the coronavirus pandemic, McLaren has chosen Aubameyang to compete alongside Lando Norris.

The striker has continued to be one of Europe’s most prolific strikers since he moved to Arsenal in 2018 after a goal-laden spell at Borussia Dortmund.

He could be on the move again this summer as he enters the final 12 months of his current Arsenal contract.

    Who cares! Not me. Nothing to do with football or Arsenal either.

      Jon, what would the reaction be if it was another player?Surely he should be concentrating on his Arsenal career and solving the issues around that?
      While earning a reported £200 thousand a week while not playing and rumoured to be one of the players who didn’t accept a wage cut, he’s really the typical greedy footballer – is he getting paid to do this?

        Isn’t it just a game? I genuinely thought it was a bit of fun.
        If not, oh dear!

          SueP Ken calls it for himself as tongue in cheek My comment was heartfelt though and meant.

        Not my view actually KEN. I JUST DON’T CARE . IF HE CHOOSES TO DO IT, THAT IS HIS AFFAIR. IT JUST IS NOT MINE AND I COULD NOT CARE LESS. It has no more to do with Arsenal matters than the colour of his carpet or floor.

        Not remotely interested and I do wish this site would stop rehashing nonsense in an attempt to get comments. I only comment on this out of frustration at how this site is now being run. TBH Ken, I am very close to giving up on this once fine site.

    I am with Jon on this.
    I love F1, adore Lewis, but not this.

    I didn’t like Lewis Hamilton until I saw a picture of him with Thierry Henry, Lewis in his old classical Asn’l kit (clean red’n’white), then I learned to like him. I hope he is a gooner. If not, I think I will start to dislike him again. By the way, there is no Formula One anymore. The last F1 driver was Ayrton Senna da Silva, the Death on Imola. The Golden Age of F1 is 1950s to 1970s, full with mad young men who loved the cars, the speed, the adventure and – women. Guys like Fangio, Ascari, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn. And they were driving CARS. Today it’s a computer game for kids or over aged kids. I stopped watching in 2011 (DRS). Drag Reduction System. What the H…

      Lewis is a gooner, Robert 👍

      1. Robert Acedius says:

        And Sir Michael Philip Jagger. Roger Daltrey. And Davis’ brothers of the great Kinks, Ray and Dave. First generation pop and rock stars. All gooners. True quality. The first generation is always the first generation. 1960s. From the 70s on to today it’s just what we in Sweden call “efterklang”. I know no English word for it. Imitators of the real thing. They can be good, they can be bad. Sometimes they even have a new dimension to add to the old thing, but still, they never reach the height of the Originals. Jumping Jack Flash.

        1. Sue says:

          There are plenty of other gooners out there too, Robert, who I like – Tinie Tempah, Anthony Joshua, Rob Beckett, Jack Whitehall, Idris Elba, to name but a few!
