"Gaming" can be a taboo word in Esports and sim racing. As the pastime has become increasingly professional - and, in the case of motorsport, serious - to call it a game may provoke those invested in it to take great umbrage.
McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris has previously said he was too embarrassed to reveal his playtime on iRacing, the premier motorsport simulation platform, which one would imagine stretches into days and weeks, if not months.
But Norris has been leading the professional charge for sim racing in recent times. He's even linked up with his former F1 performance engineer, Andrew 'Jarv' Jarvis, to go over data and telemetry to prepare for some IndyCar events. That's how serious the discipline has become.
