    Fans of yesteryear rejoice! F1 2018 will contain no less than eight classic cars, with some real eye catching models due to come to the game later this year...

    Of course the new title will feature all the cars, teams, drivers and tracks of the current Formula One World Championship, however one of the more eye catching pieces of content from the new game will be the now ever present inclusion of classic content, spanning the 1970's, 80's and early 2000's with some of the most dramatic and competitive cars of their respective eras...

    While it remains to be see exactly how these cars will feature in the newly expanded career mode, hopefully less awkward than the previous edition "guest" test sessions, it is nevertheless a very welcome inclusion into a game that aims to appeal to a wide audience of new and old Formula One fans the world over.

    As well as the "historic" content set to feature in the game, F1 2018 will also include the full 2017 grid from last year, so if the new regulations aren't quite your thing, then you can always drop back to last season for your Grand Prix kicks!

    Full Classic Content:
    • McLaren M23D
    • Ferrari 312 T2
    • Brawn BGP001
    • Lotus 72D
    • Lotus 79
    • McLaren MP4/18
    • Ferrari 312 T4
    • Williams FW25

    Formula One 2018 is scheduled to release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC August 24th 2018.

    What else do they tease or we know currently? Surely there will be modern F1 tracks but how about the classics like Brands Hatch, Donnington, etc? I don't have a copy of F1 2017 so IDK what's going on there. I was torn between DIRT Rally and F1 2017 last time, and I ended up not getting any. Now I am sure I will grab ACC and F1 2018.

    A little too big gap in my opinion between 1982 and 2003 but meh... what can we do.
    Not like CM is asking us about their content. Not like we gonna buy it. They will, I guess. :rolleyes:
    Still waiting for one whole classic cars season. 1985, say. :sneaky:
    McLaren from 1982 is still :inlove: a cookie !

    Will the classic cars from F1 2017 be included too? It would be strange to model these cars only to leave them out in the new edition...

    Anyway, the cars that are included in the upcoming edition are terrific. Especially the Ferraris and the McLarens. I do hope, however, that they will be left out of career mode. The whole "invitational events" storyline didn't make any sense...

    Good idea to keep the 2017 grid.

    Nice, Codemasters. Finally took my fun of complaining for the lack of 1970's stuff among the classic cars. xD

    You own F1 2017 man? Does it have DLC? I mean what a shame to bring back those classic cars if you can't drive them on the tracks where they used to race, where they belong yeah?

    I think you misunderstood that a bit. There won't be the 2017 F1 grid returning to F1 2018 (which would be awesome, though!) but only the classic content available in F1 2017.

    From the Codemasters blog:
    "Of course, in addition to the six historic cars from the 1970s and 1980s, all twelve classics that featured in F1 2017 are also included"

    I don't understand why they just don't do full seasons of best years and release as separate titles

    Then the ui, garage, ffb, etc. can be redone to properly reflect the period

    Someone should check the cars data to see if they're not ripped from Assetto Corsa and their mods like the F2002

    Must be that they think there aren't enough potential buyers for that

    Kind of disapointed... I was hoping for the last V8 f1 (for exemple the redbull rb9), also some 2000's f1s.
