Formula 1 may be on hold thanks to COVID-19, but F1 2020 is set to be Codemasters’ most ambitious game yet.

With an all-new game mode, My Team, giving you the chance to run the 11th team on the grid, fans around the world are more excited than ever to get their hands on the new game.

Well, Codemasters have opened up applications to beta test the game, which will let a few lucky gamers race far earlier than anyone else.

How to sign-up for F1 2020 beta

Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as dropping Codemasters an email with your gamertag.

So what do you need to do to sign-up?
