What a year! Take a look back at 2018 with us



December 21, 2018

It’s nearly time to say goodbye to 2018, and it’s been an absolutely fantastic year, from the first time we introduced you to F1® 2018 with Charles Leclerc checking out Monaco, making headlines at E3, livestreaming with Game Director Lee Mather and Senior Handling Designer David Greco. Not to mention that we loved seeing your reaction to our announcement that we were including the 2009 Brawn BGP-001 in F1® 2018. We couldn’t wait to tell you more!

We showed you the Circuit Paul Ricard in F1® 2018 with Romain Grosjean, Pierre Gasly, Esteban Ocon and Carlos Sainz, and brought a Force India F1® car to the centre of London for our UK press event – you can see some of the photos below!


That’s not the only thing we’ve been up to this year– way back in April we announced the second F1® Esports series, and what a series we’ve been treated to. You can catch up on everything at f1esports.com, and watch everything from the qualifiers to the final in our YouTube playlist below:

We are all very proud of what we achieved with F1® 2018, and we loved reading the reviews as they came in (which you can check out too right here), so much so we put them in our Accolades trailer!

And that’s without mentioning our brand new free-to-play F1® mobile game – F1® Mobile Racing – which launched in October of this year! If you haven’t checked it out yet, go and download it here. Oh, and you can check out the latest trailer right here:

What a year we’ve had, thank you to all of you for being right there on track with us. We’ve loved hearing your experiences playing all of our F1® games over the past year! We’re excited for what’s to come in the New Year, and we can’t wait to share it all with you. We’ll leave you with a chance to win a Fanatec CSL Elite F1® Set!
