F1 2021 is the twelfth instalment of the popular series of racing games based on the Formula 1 license, which is developed by the Codemasters studio. It is also the first instalment of the series created after the team was purchased by Electronic Arts, which took over as publisher.

Mechanics

In F1 2021 we take part in Formula 1 races. Thanks to the official license, the game allows us to fight for victory behind the wheel of faithfully reproduced cars, compete against real drivers representing iconic teams, and drive on well-known tracks. In the game, the Formula 2 class returns, within which we can play the season in a short, medium or full version, which is a perfect preparation for the main attraction - the Formula 1 championship. It is worth noting that in order to enjoy all the tracks of the 2021 season, the final versions of the F1 2021 cars, as well as the F2 class update, we need to download a special patch.

The game aspires to be a simulation, but the authors do not forget about less experienced players. A number of options have been implemented in the game to adjust the driving model to the preferences of both experienced drivers and occasional players. After the race, you can view the key moments of the race as selected by the game, or watch a full replay (the latter option is only available on PC, however).

Game modes

F1 2021 gives us a wide range of game modes. The biggest new feature is Braking Point, a story mode where we have to make our way from Formula 2 to Formula 1, taking our driver's experiences off the track and onto the track. Apart from that, there is a Real-Season Start function, which tracks real rankings and allows to start the ongoing season from the current moment. The game also includes a career mode, for which the system of research and development and training programs has been refreshed (quick practice has also been introduced). Interestingly, we can play it both solo and with another player, cooperating or competing. Topping it all off is My Team, where we create an 11th team and become its driver-manager, leading it to fame.

In addition, an extensive multiplayer mode has been added to the game, allowing you to play over the internet or on a split screen. In addition, there is a game mode designed for e-sports competitions; in addition to online qualifying and news, it offers the opportunity to watch the F1 Esports Challenger and Pro Series races.

Technical aspects

F1 2021 is the first game in the series to be released on ninth-generation consoles. The game takes advantage of their capabilities, offering nicer graphics and faster loading races, among other things.
