CaptainSparklez plays Minecraft with Norris and Albon, and tries Assetto Corsa

Post by Starling » 5 months ago

YouTuber CaptainSparklez (Jordan Maron), a sports car aficionado, best known for his long career as a Minecraft player, was recently invited by Lando Norris to a Minecraft Twitch Challenge, where he teamed with Norris against Alexander Albon and others. The first game was a sort of race on the ice, but I think they ended up shooting arrows at each other :D Can we implement this to decide the outcome of F1 championships? :D


(I like this latest generation of drivers, streaming on Twitch and playing games like normal young men and being generally funny. I stopped following the Vettel-Verstappen-Hamilton trio because I found them robotic. Feel free to contradict me!)

Jordan also acquired the gear to play Assetto Corsa and he's posting his progress here:

Thanks @erwin greven , I didn't know you could embed videos. The little TV in the center of the options above should have been a clue. /facepalm

Max does a lot of sim racing, so I would expect he streams as well.

Normally he does, not last weekend. Btw: since yesterday, i know why he constantly got the driver of the day awards from. The sim-racing community!!! They look at him as being one of them. And really in a manner of: He is a sim racer, and he is also World Champion Formula 1. And not: he is a WC F1 who is a sim racer.

@DoubleFart @erwin greven I hadn't realized there is a sim-racing community with actual F1 drivers. It's not a game I play (I prefer playing Minecraft by myself). I always forget that Max is only 24, like Leclerc. He's been around for such a long time that I instinctively place him in the HAM-VET generation.
