    F1 2021 is the best partner for any F1 fan. The new games modes further push the franchise beyond what the 2020 entry achieved. This, in conjunction with the simulation style that Codemasters provides, is truly a gift for car lovers, one that each year gets closer to perfection.

    F1 2021 impresses. Whether you're an avid competitor or want to pursue a storytelling career on your own, you'll be given countless opportunities to customize the game. That makes F1 2021 a versatile title. Once on the track, it is still a very solid racing game, suitable for both controllers and (semi) professional racing wheels.

    Codemasters’ best Formula One game so far adds an excellent story mode, along with a raft of new tweaks and options to make it more accessible.

    An excellent game on the track that presents Braking Point, its story mode, as a great novelty, and becomes the worst section of the whole title. If the idea is to keep this new mode, there is a lot of work to do. At the moment, it tastes like a precooked story, made in a hurry and without affection. Nothing to do with the rest of the proposals, which introduce us fully in the F1 world. If you come for the races, it is a spectacular videogame, but if you come for the story mode, be cautious.

    I appreciate F1 2021 for its experimentation with new modes and options, proving that this franchise is much more than the average annual drivers’ update. Not only does driving feel more realistic than ever, 2021’s story mode is a pleasant surprise that I hope attracts further development for the series’ next iteration. For now, though, it remains a great F1 simulator that will generate the same excitement happening in the real world’s F1 competition right now.

    The Breaking Point narrative mode allows the player to join races while feeling like they’re the lead in a Hollywood movie. That being said, the mode’s story is linear and your racing efforts don’t necessarily have an effect on its scenario. While the career mode is as well made as always, if you’ve played the series before, there’s just not enough to make the experience feel fresh again.

    Perhaps the most important thing about F1 2021 is that Codemasters has not messed with the actual mechanics of driving the cars, beyond tweaks necessary for the 2021-spec cars. With a good force-feedback wheel, the cars are engaging to drive, and you can feel subtleties in cars from different teams—a McLaren handles differently from an Alpine, a Red Bull, or a Mercedes. If you're a fan of the sport, you'll probably enjoy F1 2021.

    I bought it because it will probably the last good one we get before EA makes us pay to unlock our own car ,overall it's not bad so farI bought it because it will probably the last good one we get before EA makes us pay to unlock our own car ,overall it's not bad so far .Breaking Point has nice little story ,could be a bit shorter and let you make your own choices but still not bad ,graphics is alright all though in some instances for example when they show your team at the wall graphics resembles the one from 2002 with blurry monitors.
    As usual if you want the updated F2 you have to wait about half a year ,also it doesn't seam like they updated teams and driver stats yet to reflect the real life situation so Mercs are still super dominant and you might see HAAS ahead of somebody.
    My team is pretty much the same not as much innovation there as we expected really.
    They added some classic drivers (paid content ) but they got ride of the classic cars which kind of sucks.
    Overall if you care that much about updated livery and driver roster you can buy it now but probably best option to wait mid year on some sort of a SPECIAL deal when they actually update game proper.
