As this is the officially licenced F1 game, all of the teams, drivers, liveries and helmets are in the game. The 22-race calendar is also included, despite some GP’s already being cancelled.

New classic cars, Formula 2 and more is also inside but the most impressive feature of the lot is probably My Team.

My Team

My Team is one of the biggest features to be introduced for this year’s Formula 1 game.

Fans of games such as Football Manager will love this game mode. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to control your own team. You’re no longer playing the off-line modes as a driver but as a team boss instead.

Codemasters has revealed that you get to join the grid as the eleventh team. The driver market and sponsorships are also key mechanics in this game mode.

My Team will be the most in-depth mode in the F1 game’s history and something that adds real value to the product.

Pre-order & price

F1 2020 is available to pre-order on PS4 now! And as usual, there’s a number of more lucrative options on offer.

As it’s Formula 1’s 70th anniversary this year, exclusive content will be released with the pre-order version. Known as the “Seventy edition” this game includes an exclusive car livery, podium celebration, helmet, race suit, gloves, and player badge.
