With a greatly expanded Career featuring classic car invitational events, new Championships mode, four alternative circuit layouts and multiplayer improvements, we think we’re on to a championship winner with F1 2017.
MASSIVELY EXPANDED CAREER:
You can make history as you hone your skills and develop your car over multiple seasons in your Career. Create your driver by selecting from a range of avatars, including female drivers for the first time, helmet design (including community created versions, which are all here for you to check out), race number and then the team you want to begin your career with. You can start in whichever team you like, and each will have their own expectations of you. If you missed our career trailer, you can find out more here, and watch the trailer below:
The Research & Development system is heavily expanded, with 115 upgrades now available, while you’ll also have to manage your engine and gearbox. Earn resource points by taking part in new Practice Programmes including ‘Fuel Management’ and ‘Race Pace’. If you’d like to learn more about F1 2017’s Research and Development system, head to our interview with Experienced Games Designer, Steven Embling here.
The classic cars also take centre stage in the enhanced career mode as you’ll be invited to race them in the new Invitational events.
NEW ‘CHAMPIONSHIPS’ MODE AND GAMEPLAY TYPES:
Championship mode allows you to experience unique race events following different rules and structures from the official Championship in both modern and classic cars. For example, the Classic Street Series sees you race the iconic cars around the six streets circuits on the calendar.

The eleven other classic cars are available in all editions of the game.
ALTERNATIVE TRACK LAYOUTS:
As well as the 20 official 2017 circuits, there are four additional shortened track layouts in the game for the first time: Britain, Bahrain, USA and Japan. You’ll also be able to race the stunning Monaco circuit at night. (And it does look stunning!)
Race either the modern or classic cars online with a full grid of 20 players in both public and private sessions. Session lists are available on all platforms, and the game now offers two dedicated “spectator” spots as well as improved multiplayer matchmaking, new online stats and levelling system, and all multiplayer session types.
