The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Esports Team re-adds Dani Bereznay

On Wednesday (26 April) another twist was added to the 2023 F1 Esports Silly Season when the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Esports Team announced that Dani Bereznay would be rejoining the team for the upcoming 2023 season.

Bereznay, who was part of the team in 2018, had spent the past four years bouncing back and forth between Alfa Romeo (2019, 2020, 2022) and McLaren Shadow (2021), two teams that were like Mercedes-AMG became operated by Veloce Esports behind the scenes.

“This is one of the most successful teams in modern F1 history,” said Bereznay. “The way we approach F1 Esports is the same winning mentality as in real life. I don’t think there is a rider out there who would say no to a project like this.”

Bereznay will join forces with Jarno Opmeer, recent addition to the team Marcel Kiefer and Jake Benham.

While 3-plus-1 does indeed equal four, and typically an F1 Esports Pro Championship outfit features three drivers, we still don’t know if there will be rule adjustments for the upcoming 2023 season, or if there will be more Silly Season moves . However, it sounds like the plan is to use this quartet.

“With Dani joining Marcel, Jarno and Jake in the Mercedes program this year we believe we have the strongest driver group for 2023 and now it’s just a matter of getting to grips with the new game for this year’s series” , said Oliver MacFarlane, the Head of Esports for the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team in the press release.

Bereznay brings a pedigree among the best, with five career wins and a best points finish as second overall in 2018, followed by third in points in 2019 and fifth in 2020.

He also recently took the checkered flag in the wild finale to the Premier Sim Gaming Leagues Season 32. Bereznay crossed the finish line in third, then piloting an Alfa Romeo F1 machine, but was awarded victory due to penalties for the top two.

“I’m delighted to have been given this opportunity to represent this incredible brand and team along with my amazing teammates,” said Bereznay. “I can’t wait for the upcoming season to start.”
