  • Summary: The official videogame of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship, F1 2019 challenges you to Defeat your Rivals in the most ambitious F1 game in Codemasters' history. The game is released a full two months earlier during the Formula 1 myWorld Grosser Preis von Osterreich 2019 weekendThe official videogame of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship, F1 2019 challenges you to Defeat your Rivals in the most ambitious F1 game in Codemasters' history. The game is released a full two months earlier during the Formula 1 myWorld Grosser Preis von Osterreich 2019 weekend and, unlike previous iterations, ahead of the British, German and Hungarian races.

    F1 2019 features all the official teams, drivers and all 21 circuits from the 2019 season. This year sees the inclusion of F2 with players being able to complete the 2018 season with the likes of George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon. The 2019 F2 season content will be made available as a free digital update during the season.

    Having established itself as one of the highest rated racing franchises of all time, F1 2019 builds on the success of previous iterations and delivers an experience that rivals the quality and production values of its real-life race counterpart. With greater emphasis on graphical fidelity, the environments have been significantly enhanced, and the tracks come to life like never before. Night races have been completely overhauled creating vastly improved levels of realism and the upgraded F1 broadcast sound and visuals add further realism to all aspects of the race weekend.

    F1 2019 retains immaculate handling and visuals while adding cinematic spectacle and junior series racing.

    F1 2019 is yet another excellent racer developed by Codemasters. With a wealth of positives, such as the improved feel of the racing, as well as how great the game looks and a number of new gameplay features, the game was bound to shine. The minor negatives, such as new modes like the Senna/Prost challenges feeling shallow, are minor blips in what is an otherwise outstanding game.

    F1 2019 is another exceptional racing game that caters to all spectrums of fans, giving you many modes, exhibition events and an exciting career mode to get familiar with its gorgeous tracks. It's simply one of the best simulation racers out there, again.

    Codemasters has not disappointed with F1 2019, the new features and multiple improvements making it one of the most complete driving simulations of the year. Apart from the big black mark in terms of content for the Senna/Prost section, the rest is faithful to the DNA of the F1 license, and that's good. Although the absence of Formula E is regrettable, the gameplay and driving remain intact for our greatest pleasure — there's no need to reinvent the wheel here.

    All in all, F1 2019 has become an outstanding racing game, but not because of this year's innovations, but because of the sovereign basis that Codemasters has built up over the years. With Formula 2, this basis has become even more stable.

    Codemasters delivers its best Formula One game to date.

    I love that they added an interweaving sub-plot to the already interesting career of trying to win a championship. The rivalries are also done really well, where you are told to stay away from your rivals otherwise they may attempt to sabotage you on the track. It’s all quite fun.

The game has nice graphics and it immersive on ultra wide monitor. I am playing the game on AMD Ryzen 3400g with integrated graphics. The game runs well on my APU. I play the game on high settings with high frame rates. I am trying to get more than 1 point for my Williams team :) Expand

    I learned very much about the cars and F1 in general, especially when you turn off assistance-systems. the multiplayer is not so fun, becauseI learned very much about the cars and F1 in general, especially when you turn off assistance-systems. the multiplayer is not so fun, because codemasters f**** up a good matchmaking (its so buggy) and the madness of the other players is very annoying. there is no online-race without a rage-actions Expand

    Kerbs that can be used in real races are not available in this game and this is not nice. Okay, maybe i didnt play F12016-17-18, i don't knowKerbs that can be used in real races are not available in this game and this is not nice. Okay, maybe i didnt play F12016-17-18, i don't know how it was in the games I counted, but there is no way to save from spins. Online race penalty system is terrible.

    But, graphics are good. AI is significantly improved from 7th gen games. F2 is really cool. But i thought we can do full season career with F2 before F1 career but we get only 3 F2 races. Disappointing (maybe there is a way to do, but i didnt found anything.) R&D system is good.

    So far, this is the best official F1 game.
    The graphics are good (except for people in cut scenes), and the steering is great and well
    So far, this is the best official F1 game.
    The graphics are good (except for people in cut scenes), and the steering is great and well scaleable.

    The GP2 part of the story mode disappoints, as you only race a few laps three times, before yo go to F1.
    Online multiplayer is only acceptable in closed lobbies. Public lobbies are a nightmare.
    And when the next F1 game comes out, online dies.

    But don't call this simulation.
    This is nothing like real life.
    The reason is the insulting damage system.

    Because F1 doesn't have the balls to stand up to the sponsors who don't want their precious brand logos scratched, the damage "simulation" in this is a joke.
    You can damage your front wing of break your suspension.

    That's it.

    The whole chassis should able break and crumble realistically (eg. Alonso crash in Australia 2016)
    depending on how you crash.
    An unlucky hit on the rear should send cars airborne.
    Spinning out at high speed and through the gravel should make cars roll over.

    But nope - cars are always glued to the ground, and having a bend wheel or broken front wing is the most damage that you will see.
    It's like toy cars. No consequences, no thrill, no danger, no bravery. Just toy cars on the carpet.

    That is the main reason why I only get a new F1 game every 3-5 years.
    What's the point if it's always the same outdated and embarrassing damage system, while games like Wreckfest show how it's done?
