With an expanded career mode, the return of a fan-favorite feature and a new lineup of classic F1 cars, F1 2018 will continue the series’ legacy of providing the most realistic F1 experience fans can get short of climbing into a real-world cockpit.

F1 2018 will immerse players into the world of Formula 1more than ever before.

The 2018 season has started in exhilarating style with victories for Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel at both the Australian and Bahrain Grand Prix, and thenfor Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo in China. Lewis Hamilton then wona thrilling and dramatic race at the Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan, and most recently Hamilton was again victorious in last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. The 2018 season also sees the return of the French Grand Prix for the first time since 2008, at the Circuit Paul Ricard, which last hosted the French Grand Prix in 1990. The German Grand Prix also returns to the Championship after not featuring last year, with the Hockenheimring hosting the race in July.F1 2018 will feature all of the official teams, the drivers and circuits of the 2018 season.

Codemasters has released a new trailer for F1 2018, that showcases the return of the French Grand Prix to the calendar by talking to the local F1 drivers about the recreation of their home circuit in the new game. French nationals, Romain Grosjean, Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly, as well as Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Carlos Sainz, talked to Codemasters about the new Circuit Paul Ricard and their experience with the game.

“Of course the French Grand Prix is the one I am most looking forward to in the year,” said Haas F1 Team driver, Grosjean. “It will be my first time racing in my home Grand Prix and a lot of French fans are coming to support us.”

Pierre Gasly added: “I am massively excited. To have a home Grand Prix is a special feeling. You can really feel the support.”

“I have been playing games since I was a kid... and I haven’t stopped,” said Ocon. “The games have evolved massively and are getting more and more realistic. It is still my routine to go training during the day and I play for one or two hours in the evening... and I find it very useful. When we don’t have a race weekend I keep racing on my own.”

“This is my first try on F1 2018 and I am super impressed. I am a big fan of the games and have played them since I was a kid”, added Gasly. “Every year it keeps getting better.”

Sainz commented: “I spend my time at home practicing in the Formula 1 game and on the simulator at Renault. You can be sure that we do this kind of practice.”

Reflecting on the feedback of the drivers, Lee Mather, Game Director, F1 2018 said: “It is fantastic for us to get time with the real drivers. These are the guys who know what it is really like to drive these incredible cars and to have them give honest feedback is always extremely valuable. The fact that they were all positive about the game and the direction in which we are taking it is great to hear.”

F1 2018 will release onto PS4, Xbox One and PC (DVD and via Steam) worldwide on August 24, 2018.
