At the beginning of 2020, the world was turned on its head with one disaster after another and we couldn’t tell left from right. As a result, many sports were put on hold and their futures left uncertain. Formula1 happened to be one of the victims of the dreaded coronavirus pandemic, but that didn’t stop Codemasters from giving its F1 game a solid step forward with polish in some areas and new content in others.
In the world of F1, fans have come to expect the lack of leaps and bounds within the F1 cars as new regulations and rules consistently find its way into the beloved motorsport. The days of Jim Clark, Ayrton Senna, and Niki Lauda pushing the limits of a vehicle through raw driving talent has seemed to only remain in the history books, while it appears modern-day F1 relies more on the engineers and R&D, rather than driver ability.
However, you would think that the plethora of regulations would limit just how much F1 cars can perform at any given time. Well, that’s usually how it works but sometimes a loophole is found and it can create something magnificent as a result. Take Mercedes'new car (the AMG W11), for example. The engineers have managed to sneak an extra clump of horsepower into it. Not only did they improve the car in every regard, but it also has this new witchcraft technology known as DAS, a gadget that nobody was expecting in the slightest. In the same way that Mercedes managed to pull the rug from under the competition’s feet, Codemasters came in with the same energy with F1 2020.
While previous F1 career modes placed you in the perspective of the driver, My Team puts you in the foreground of being the owner too.
The standard simulation handling has been mixed in with a much more casual driving model for newcomers...
