Codemasters are well ahead of the game and have managed to get F1 2019 ready two months earlier than planned. It’s available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. F1 2019 features loads of series firsts including the 2018 FIA F2 Championship and driver transfers.
In the 2018 FIA F2 Championship players can compete alongside F1 rookies George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon. The game launches with the F2 feeder series; a scenario-based introduction which alters the outcome of the game based on the player’s success, actions and responses. The F2 2019 season will be added via a free digital download later in the year.

Driver transfers will mainly happen at the end of a season and established stars including current F1 World Champion, Lewis Hamilton and arch-nemesis, Sebastian Vettel can form an unlikely partnership or continue their rivalry in the racing colours of completely new teams. All new contracts are based on performance, so talent will have the opportunity to sign for a title contender with a series of strong results or be relegated to a team whose goals are much less ambitious.
F1 2019 features 18 classic cars celebrating every decade from the 1970s through to 2010. Players can re-live great moments from yesteryear in the best-performing cars of their generation including the 1972 Lotus 72D, 1988 McLaren MP4/4, 1996 Williams FW18 through to the 2010 Red Bull RB6. In addition, players can also race the McLaren MP4-25 and the Ferrari F10 from the 2010 season as part of the F1 2019 Anniversary Edition. Players can also customise a 2019 regulation car, created in collaboration with Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds, with a series of liveries and compete online in Multiplayer mode.
