F1 2021 has not failed to disappoint, with some awesome new features and game modes, including the all-new two-player career mode!
Check out everything we know about Codemasters' latest release below, including details on the changes which have been made to Career Mode and My Team.
Latest - Career Mode & My Team
Despite fans expecting Codemasters to neglect Career Mode after the introduction of My Team last year, they have renovated and improved the mode for F1 2021.
Firstly, there is a completely new R&D style, both in presentation and process, which will carry over into My Team too.
There is also a brand new two-player career mode option!
For online play, you and a friend can play through the same career mode, doing all the things you would normally interact with by yourself.
This can be done as teammates working toward a Constructors title, or as rivals on different teams, battling it out to see who can claim the Drivers title.

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:
- Bahrain Grand Prix
- Spanish Grand Prix
- Monaco Grand Prix
- Azerbaijan Grand Prix
- Canadian Grand Prix
- French Grand Prix
- Austrian Grand Prix
- British Grand Prix
- Hungarian Grand Prix
More coming soon!
It looks as if the Stadia version will not arrive at the same time as the other platforms.
Described as a "next gen gaming experience", we can't wait to see what the game offers on the Next Gen consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

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.”
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!

Iconic drivers landing in My Team
Players that get the Deluxe Edition will receive seven iconic drivers that they can use in My Team. Who these drivers are we don't yet know, but it's an awesome addition for sure.
It also suggests that Codemasters could be preparing the ground for some form of Ultimate Team mode in future releases.
It wouldn't be a surprise given EA's involvement and F1's rich history, but what it would look like remains to be seen.
