Redwood City, Calif. – August 25, 2023 – Today Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) celebrates the restart of the F1® season with new real-world challenges and game updates in EA SPORTS™ F1® 23. The game will launch its first two ‘Pro Challenges’, where fans can go wheel-to-wheel with EA SPORTS ambassadors Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc in ghost lap time trials. Max Verstappen sets the challenge in a new video and invites players to race against him at Circuit Zandvoort. Daniel Ricciardo also makes a welcome return to the game, alongside the addition of an updated Singapore track and more ‘F1® World’ challenges.

From August 29 to September 4, fans can go head-to-head with back-to-back World Champion Max Verstappen in an intense lap time trial. With Verstappen setting the bar high, players who beat his time of 1:10:621 will earn his special FORMULA 1 DUTCH GRAND PRIX 2023 helmet in-game to recognise their victory. On September 5, players will be beckoned to surpass the lap time set by Charles Leclerc, to win a special Scuderia Ferrari item for the FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAN PREMIO D’ITALIA 2023.

“We are beyond thrilled with the launch of the new ‘Pro Challenge’ feature in ‘F1® World’. Giving players the opportunity to directly engage and compete against their favourite drivers in game is something we always wanted to deliver,” said Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. “’F1® World’ will continue to evolve, creating more moments for players to test their virtual racing skills against their real-world heroes.”
