In the second of our 'RD Plays F1 2017' series, we take up the fight once again in our trusty McLaren Honda McL32 at the Chinese Grand Prix. Heading onto our shelves in just a few days time, Formula One 2017 from Codemasters looks highly likely to become one of the finest iterations of the series to date.
