Dutchman Schutte, an up-and-coming talent making his F1 Esports debut in 2021, will also contribute to a youthful and skilled squad.

Filip Prešnajder: “I feel very privileged to be joining forces with Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN F1 Esports Team, one of the best teams in the business for the upcoming F1 Esports season. I am really thankful to them for putting their trust into me and I will do my best to repay them with the best possible results on track.”

Thijmen Schutte: “This is my first season with an F1 Esports team and I’m really looking forward to the challenge against the very best sim racers in the world. It’s an honour to join a team with such a rich history in the competition and I can’t wait to get started.”

Jamie MacLaurin, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN F1 Esports Team: “We have followed Filip and Thijmen’s development closely over the past few months and have been really impressed by their pace and temperament off track. They are really exciting talents, and we look forward to working with them over the course of 2021 and beyond.”
