In the run up to 2017 FORMULA 1 ROLEX BRITISH GRAND PRIX, we’re extremely happy to be showing a brand new trailer off to you for F1™ 2017, the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™. The trailer showcases Max Verstappen playing F1 2017 in the stunning ‘Hall of Fame’ at Red Bull Racing Headquarters in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, ahead of the 2017 FORMULA 1 ROLEX BRITISH GRAND PRIX this weekend at the iconic Silverstone circuit.
In a first for our F1 games, in addition to all of the twenty official 2017 circuits being present in the new game, we can announce to you that F1 2017 will also include four shortened circuit variations, including ‘Silverstone Short’. You can see Max Verstappen driving the 2017 Red Bull Racing RB13 and also the classic 2010 Red Bull Racing RB6 on the ‘Silverstone Short’ circuit in the trailer below, or you can head over to our YouTube channel here to watch it.
Of course, Max Verstappen approaches the Silverstone Short circuit in trademark fashion in the trailer, and sets a new fastest lap! The four shortened circuit variations are available in all game modes, and can be raced with either the 2017 or the classic cars.
Max said of his experience playing the new F1 2017 game: “I really like the game and it is a lot more fun to drive with the new cars. The graphics are a lot better, they’ve made the cars more realistic, and that’s always good. I like the detail on the classic cars involved and it’s always nice to drive those old legendary cars. I think it’s a great game, it’s definitely a lot of fun to play.”
In the trailer Verstappen also comments on how the two cars feel to him compared to his real life experiences: “The 2017 RB13 feels really good in the game, with the extra grip, from the new 2017 car designs as well as from the wider tyres, resulting in faster cornering speeds which require more precision. In comparison, the classic RB6 is lighter, with a slower top speed, and later braking, and of course the biggest stand out being the sound of the engine.”
F1 2017 will release onto PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam) worldwide on August 25th 2017. If you want to pre-order F1 2017, there’s plenty of ways you can. You can pre-order here:
