With the latest Formula One game from Codemasters set to release some two months earlier than usual - right in time for the Austrian Grand Prix, fans are understandably eager to find out as much as possible about what the title has in store for us this June 28th - and Codemasters have been kind enough to oblige with a brand new trailer and historic content reveal.
“Every year we make great strides so the game is as authentic and immersive as possible and we have surpassed expectations with the quality of the visuals in F1 2019,” said Lee Mather, F1 Game Director at Codemasters. “We also know from fan feedback the classic cars our community want to race and we hope the returning roster, alongside the new vehicles from the Legends and Anniversary editions, will give them the choices they crave.”F1 2019 Historic Car Content

As can be seen in the above list, Codemasters certainly have plenty of the history of the sport covered with their classic content list, however I must admit I'm a little bit disappointed about the quantity of recycled content from the previous game. At the premium price tag F1 2019 is sure to attract, I would personally have liked to see a little more "new" old content brought in with this release.
Saying that, don't forget that F1 2019 will have something brand new for this year - the inclusion of F2 for the very first time, both playable in truncated form in career mode, and full seasons in the single player championship mode.
Although we haven't got a date just yet, stay tuned to RaceDepartment in the next couple of weeks as we are planning a little trip down to Codemasters new studio to get our hands on the new game and speak with the developers directly - so if you have anything you want me to ask, drop a line in the comments section below and I'll try and fit it into the conversation!
