As for the new features, Codemasters promise new tracks which will feature in the real world Formula 1 championship this season. These include the Portimao, Imola, and Jeddah circuits available as free post-launch content.
Additionally, a brand new story mode is coming named the Braking Point, which will take players from Formula 2 to Formula 1 with the F2 rival Devon Butler making a return too. As for the career mode, you will be able to play with your friends thanks to Two-Player mode, which allows you to join your career online and play co-operatively – or choose a rival team and race against you, each player having full control over their driving assists.
Driver-manager mode My Team returns, as does two-player split-screen, shorter-season options for both F1 and F2 Esports. You can find more details in the announcement here
