Daniel Abt fined for cheating in virtual FormulaE race

Racing driver Daniel Abt was disqualified from a virtual FormulaE race on Sunday after admitting getting a professional gamer to take his place at the console instead.

Abt was also ordered to make a “compulsory donation” of 10,000 euros ($AUD 17,000) to charity and stripped of his third place finish.

Pro esports gamer Lorenz Hoerzing, 18, had replaced Abt in the “sim” for the race around Berlin-Tempelhof.

The 27-year-old Abt raised suspicions because his video camera was switched off during an interview, and later the face of the driver was obscured by an object.

“I’d like to apologise to FormulaE, all the fans, my team and my driver colleagues for calling in outside help during Saturday’s race,” the German said in a statement on Sunday.
