With each year there is a new iteration of F1(I skipped lasts years game) and I can say that there has been improvements to the game. From the inclusion of the transfer feature to old classics this years F1 2019 has a lot to offer for avid F1 Racing fans.

This year the guys over at Codemasters has included Formula 2 prelims to your career mode. This gives you a extra bit to practise and what is nice a bit of interaction with the crew and news reporters. This I felt gives you a slightly better single player experience. It does not last to long and you always get into F1 team no matter your standings in the F2 roster. I think if Codemasters add a little more of this type of interaction and gameplay then it would make the game so much more enjoyable.

Another feature that they added this year(and I hear it was a requested feature from lots of fans) is F1 driver transfers, yes you can now switch teams in your career mode just like the real F1 Drivers.

When it comes down to the racing part(the real reason everybody is actually playing F1) it feels more smoother and the AI seems to me that they driving better and really gives you a go for your money. Even when playing with the normal PS4 controller it feels smooth and handles better.

Codemasters also added a new Rain FX system and it also includes new Night Lighting for when you like to take on Hamilton in the evenings. I also loved the new UI design for the game, makes it more smoother when transitioning between panels. They also included a showroom where you can go read up about your favorite race car. I did not get a chance to test the multiplayer feature as my ISP decided I do not need internet…

Overall I am really impressed with the upgrades compared to the 2017 version of the game. Better graphics, the inclusion on the F2 circuit and for me better AI drivers. I would recommend this to any F1 racing sim fan and I can’t wait to see what they will bring out in 2020/21. This is your local mad scientist signing out…time to go race with Jody Scheckter 312 T4 Ferrari..
