ESPN2 is airing an esports marathon because Covid-19 has crimped live sports

ESPN2 announced it will air a 12-hour marathon of live and taped competitive, multiplayer video-game tournaments tomorrow (April 5) beginning at 12pm ET. With the first eight Formula One races being postponed or cancelled, F1 drivers are instead playing the video-game version, F1 2019. The second installment of F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix will take place tomorrow and feature current F1 drivers Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, and others.
