Codemasters is bringing the release of its annual F1 game forward from its regular slot, with the release confirmed for June 28th this year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. And it looks like that's not the only change that's being made.
There's an edgier new look, and the introduction of a 2019 spec car designed by Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds that will allow players to employ their own choice of liveries, allowing for a little more customisation when it comes to multiplayer races.
The most exciting part, though, comes in a brief flash at the end of the short trailer as we see the silhouette of the current Dallara F2 car, which strongly suggests the series - which supports several rounds of the F1 calendar - will be making its debut in F1 2019. It's the feeder series from which the likes of George Russell and Lando Norris came, and it promises a bit more diversity to the career structure. Exciting stuff and long overdue - here's hoping we can find out more soon.
