French organisation Team Vitality, working alongside the Renault Group, has strengthened its F1 Esports team ahead of the new season.
A new performance development centre located in the heart of the Stade de France is entirely dedicated to the training of Team Vitality athletes.

Earlier this year, the two French brands announced the signing of coach Richard Arnaud and French driver Nicolas Longuet to their ‘Renault Vitality’ team. Two other drivers have joined them in Enstone, the hub of the Renault DP World F1 Team, to benefit from optimal physical and technical preparation.
The new 2020 F1 Esports Series calendar officially starts on October 14th, and the Renault Vitality squad is bolstered by their picks of Fabrizio Donoso, who finished second in the 2017 World Championships, and Casper Jansen, a 17-year-old Dutch prospect, during the F1 Esports Series Pro Draft day.

The new facility, named Renault V.Performance, can accommodate up to three teams at once and is equipped to allow the team’s medical and sports teams to work directly on site.
Team Vitality’s other esports teams, in titles such as League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Rainbow Six Siege, will also benefit from the collaboration. They will be able to participate in weeks of intensive training, organised at the Renault Sport Racing factory in Enfield, England, the hub of the Renault DP World F1 team.
Esports Insider Says: A brand new facility is exciting for any esports team, but for these esports drivers to have the same physical and technical preparation as the Renault F1 team is absolutely incredible. No doubt that Renault Vitality will be looking towards the top of the F1 Esports Series Constructors Championship in the upcoming season.
