Formula 1 has just announced the Virtual Grand Prix Series, which kicks off on March 22 and features real racers squaring off in the F1 2019 video game from the comfort of their own self-isolation spots.

They'll be competing at the virtualized Sakhir track in Bahrain for a 50% length (28 laps) race, which is scheduled to stream live on YouTube and Twitch at 1:00pm PST. We'll definitely be tuning in.
