Sebastian Job from G2 Esports and Maximilian Benecke from MOUZ demonstrated their prowess by sharing victories in these initial rounds. Job secured victories in the first two rounds, while Benecke claimed victory in the previous round at the Hockenheimring.

Round 4 at the Nürburgring

Round 4 of the ESL R1 competition unfolded at the iconic Nürburgring circuit. In this round, both championship protagonists, Sebastian Job and Maximilian Benecke, successfully advanced past the Knockout phase.

Unfortunately, not everyone had a lucky day, as Eamonn Murphy of G2 Esports, who had achieved his best-ever ESL R1 finish in Round 3 (a commendable 4th place at Hockenheim), faced elimination.

Semi-Final Battles and Surprise Pole Position

Jamie Fluke from Apex Racing Team grabbed a surprising pole position, leading the way in semi-final 1. Behind him, Luke Bennett and Dáire McCormack, representing Williams Esports, engaged in an aggressive and entertaining battle for the final qualifying position.

McCormack was instructed to concede his position to Bennett due to a judgment that he had squeezed Bennett wide. While McCormack complied, he was clearly on the lookout for an opportunity to counter-attack.

Dramatic Moments in Semi-Final 2

In semi-final 2, Nikodem Wisniewski, fresh from his Knockout race win, impressively qualified in second place, with only G2’s Sebastian Job ahead of him.

The race began with drama as MOUZ’s Yuri Kasdorp was forced off-track, colliding with his teammate Moritz Löhner and dropping to last position. James Baldwin from Mercedes-AMG Petronas also had an off-track incident, being pushed off by Redline’s Kevin Siggy.

Sebastian Job confidently cruised to victory, with Wisniewski securing the second position. Josh Roger managed to secure the third place after usurping Bono Huis.

Jiri Toman also moved ahead of Huis to finish fourth, while FURIA’s Caique Oliveira climbed to sixth after Redline’s Jeffrey Rietveld received a penalty for an earlier infringement.

Wisniewski Dominates in the Final Race

In the final race, Wisniewski continued to impress, securing pole position with a slender margin over Joshua Rogers from Porsche Coanda Esport.

Maximilian Benecke started in third place, with his championship rival, Sebastian Job, beginning the race from the fifth position.

The final race didn’t offer the anticipated excitement, as the race order remained largely unchanged after some early shuffling. Benecke managed to move ahead of Rogers early on, but Wisniewski had already established a significant lead, ultimately earning himself a well-deserved race victory.
