Gameplay

F1 2021 has a new handling model to bring it into line with the real world cars following a reduction in downforce for the 2021 season.

Racing feels a little different this year, with more understeer in the car. It also means that setups are wildly different from last year. If you need one, check out the list below:

The new trailer gives us a taste of the new features coming to F1 2021.

The main feature for this year’s iteration is the new story, called Braking Point.

This mode will see you start off in F2 and, over the course of three seasons, head into one of five of the teams in the 2021 F1 world championship.

Braking Point

A new story mode is coming to F1 2021 - Braking Point.

“Go on an epic journey with ‘Braking Point’, our brand-new story mode. Rise from the ranks of Formula 2 to a shot at stardom in the world of Formula 1. Experience the lifestyle both on and off the track as you take your seat in the pinnacle of motorsport.

That’s not all. After his infamous debut in F1 2019, Devon Butler is back.”

HE'S BACK - But could Devon Butler not be the antagonist this time around?

Like in 2019, the story mode will commence in Formula 2, but this time you race as Aiden Jackson, and up-and-comer looking to make his name in F1. His road is anything but smooth as he clashes with veteran teammate Casper Akkerman and of course, the smarmy Devon Butler!
