Lewis Hamilton explained why he did not participate in any virtual F1 race during the coronavirus pandemic. People like Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon and George Russell are participating in what would be the Grand Prix on Sundays.
The next is tomorrow, when the Spanish Grand Prix will take place.
The three above, as well as Lando Norris, Antonio Giovinazzi and Nicholas Latifi, have all been confirmed as drivers of the current grid.
They will be joined by Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, Arthur Melo from Barcelona and Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Hamilton explained his absence, as he does not like the game used for the events.
“I play a little, but I'm not interested in those racing games. You see other drivers playing, but I don't like those games. Sony sent me a complete configuration for Gran Turismo, ”said Hamilton.

"Normally you would happen to people, but now you need to reach them in a different way."
The six-time F1 world champion explained that he is making the most of his time off the track with the blockade imposed because of the crisis.
Hamilton said: "There have been times in the past five years when I thought a break would be good for the body and the mind.
"For an athlete at his best, it is never good to be away for a year, but we received a sabbatical, which I am enjoying".
The 35-year-old added: "I feel fresher and healthier than ever."
The Briton believes that staying busy is crucial for everyone during these difficult times of isolation.
"The fight for everyone I think is keeping your mind clear. Some days you are slow and others are positive," he said.
"But the key is to try to stay focused, to find things that you enjoy doing that you may not have had time to do in the past.
"Don't waste this time. This is a really important thing – don't waste that time."
