F1 2020 | The Cars Of Michael Schumacher

The upcoming Formula One game from Codemasters is set to pay homage to one of the most successful drivers in Grand Prix Racing - with the Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition featuring several of the Germans racing machines.

Michael Schumacher was a driver who did a fantastic job of dividing opinion within the motorsport fanbase. For some, he was the ultimate example of never say die determination with a passion to succeed. For others, he was a ruthless driver who wouldn't think twice about crossing over the line of acceptable behaviour. Whatever side of the fence you sit on, the records of Schumachers Formula One career are plain for all to see. In just 306 starts in Formula One, Schumacher amassed an incredible 91 career victories, seven World Championships and 155 podium finishes - often in cars that were not the most potent of the day.

Having retired from competition at the end of the 2006 season, Schumacher would do much to redeem public opinion with a less successful, but entirely more human second crack at Grand Prix racing with Mercedes. Returning to the sport at 41 years of age in 2010 for a brief three year period, the success wouldn't come back, but a visibly much more relaxed and personable Michael Schumacher would grace the Formula One paddocks during his second career.

With Schumacher still fighting for fitness again following his life altering skiing accident in the winter of 2013, Codemasters are taking the opportunity to honour the Germans incredible career in Formula One, featuring many of his historic racing machines in the upcoming 2020 Formula One videogame, set to be released this July.

"As part of the 70th anniversary of F1®, it's fitting to celebrate the most successful World Champion of all time," said Lee Mather, F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters. "We are equally excited to finally bring the Jordan 191 and Benetton B194 to the F1® series as both have been long-requested by our community, alongside two more of his iconic cars."
Players will also be able to drive four of his most iconic vehicles from the 90s and 2000s.
  • 1991: Jordan 191 – The car that launched Michael's career. The emerald green car was first driven at the 1991 Belgium Grand Prix
  • 1994: Benetton B194 – The season Michael won his first World Championship, winning six of the first seven races
  • 1995: Benetton B195 – In a class of its own, it brought Michael his second and Benetton's first and only World Championship
  • 2000: Ferrari F1-2000 – The car delivered 10 pole positions, 10 race victories and secured Ferrari its first driver's World Championship since 1979

The F1 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition, launching with three days early access, also comes with exclusive themed car liveries and driver customisation items, including a unique podium celebration.

Players who purchase either F1 2020 Seventy or Deluxe Schumacher Edition will have access to the Ferrari F2004. The car, which brought Michael his record-breaking seventh World Championship, a real fan favourite since being introduced to the franchise back in F1 2017, has now been updated with #1 added to the nosecone and his name embossed on the headrest.

F1 2020 is set to release on July 7th for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.

Its strange as when I think of Schumacher I picture the B194 never a Ferrari, I never got 2019 but I have this on pre-order from fanatec for the 1 EUR with a wheel offer, so will gibe it ago.

Would that be Goodyear and Bridgestone tyres ?

I like the F1 games and these are nice cars (especially the gorgeous 1991 Jordan). But the addition of classic cars in the F1 games always strikes me as a bit pointless, because you can't race them against other cars and drivers of the same era. And the way they are integrated into the career mode as "invitational events" has always felt wrong to me, considering there are no such events in real life. It's certainly not a selling point for me, never drive them in the game. Well, this year I bought the deluxe edition for 1$ when I bought a Fanatec wheel bundle, so maybe I'll give them a try.

i will be buying this just for the jordon 191, best looking car in my opinion. the rear diffuser is just epic. and the fact that it launched a legend is just a bonus.

It's generally looking and sounding good but am I the only one that thinks the lighting with the bright sun just isn't right. Seems to have an exaggerated cool blue tint. PC Pre-Order is currently £32.99 at CD Keys.
