Codemasters announced some new details on the forthcoming release of F1 2019 and will be adding the Formula 2 Championship to F1 2019.
The full 2018 season will be available from launch, and the F2 2019 season is being digitally added later in the year – complete with online functionality. You’ll be able to compete alongside George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon before progressing into the current F1® season with their respective teams.
“Fans can see from the new cover art design that F1® 2019 has a strong theme of rivalry running through it, just like the main sport itself. As such, we are absolutely delighted to have resurrected F1®’s greatest ever rivalry between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost,” said Paul Jeal, F1® Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Their rivalry began right back in the 1984 season and reached one of the most dramatic ever climaxes on the first lap of the Japanese Grand Prix during the 1990 season. It’s a rivalry which has transcended way beyond the sport and is regarded as the greatest of all time by F1® fans. We know our community will love that the two legends of the sport have finally been immortalised together in our game.
We’re also extremely excited to be bringing the FIA Formula 2 Championship to the franchise. It’s consistently been one of the most requested features from our community and it comes at a perfect time with the top three drivers from 2018 in George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon progressing to F1® for this season. We can’t wait to unveil more details on how this is integrated into the career mode in the coming weeks.”

In addition to the regular version, a Legends edition will appear in which players can control the McLaren MP4 / 5B and Ferrari F1-90 of the drivers Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost respectively. Buyers of the Legends edition can play three days earlier than buyers of the normal edition.
