I really do appreciate Codemasters F1 series for what it is. While there are some flaws the simple fact is that if you want to simulate a non-COVID-19 affected 2020 season this is the only bit of software that can do that to full effect. And if you drive the cars in a realistic manner, the series does reward you with a fun driving experience as well (since 2016 at least, before that I don’t rate it as highly).

With F1 2019 I was fairly critical of the F2 intergration and felt like the career mode lacked what I needed to make me want to do more than a single season. Well, I have to admit, Codemasters have apparently tackled and solved most of my complaints… Apart from the semi-microtransaction content they have added with the Podium Pass I’m really very happy with this list of changes, and I am SO happy for the career and team management additions:

Deeper F2™ Integration
Choose from a full season, half season, or three-race F2™ experience, before getting started on your 10-season driver career. We’re also adding the 2020 F2™ season as a free update later in the year.

Shorter Season Options
F1® 2020 is all about giving you more ways to play. One is the shorter season options. Choose between the original and full 22 race season (including Hanoi Circuit and Circuit Zandvoort), or shorter 10 or 16 options. Now you can focus on the tracks you really enjoy!

Rear-view mirror
Not only have we given you more options to play F1® 2020, we’ve also been listening to your feedback from previous games. This year, we’re introducing a rear-view mirror to help you race wheel-to-wheel against your opponents.

Customisable OSD
Want to move your circuit map somewhere else? Change where your rear-view mirror sits? Move everything to wherever you’d like on screen. The customisable OSD is now available on all platforms!

Simplified ERS
Based on feedback from F1® drivers, we’ve simplified the ERS to make it more realistic. All you need to do to activate it is press a button!

Podium Pass
New to F1® 2020, the Podium Pass allows to you Race, Earn and Unlock. Each season you’ll be able to unlock free customisation items by racing in your favourite game modes and earning XP. Custom cosmetic items include car liveries, race equipment such as gloves, overalls and helmets, and podium emotes. Want even more? You’ll be able to purchase the VIP upgrade to gain access to higher-level rewards and additional in-game challenges.
