    It's the only way to really freeze 2020 cars for next season, otherwise they'd just continue developing them on the side ramping up costs

    yeah it could be fun, watch the f1 teams spend millions reverse engineering the game and hiring codemaster devs

    Very cool ... probably good for Codemasters too and for the game, the next version may end up a bit more realistic as a result ...

    Will it have Zandvoort in time though I wonder? Probably ;)

    From your link it sounds like they might allow some non-chassis changes. Is the chassis only the body or does it include things like the suspension, brakes, etc...

    I believe the only person who agreed to participate is latifii. Can he even be counted as a F1 already? ;)

    Verstappen said he won't participate because he never plays that game and it would take some time to get up to speed.

    That is a shame but I om so far have never been attracted to this franchise just because each time I tried it it didn’t feel right. But who knows it’s better now ...

    I don't really get the negativity. There are 18 other drivers, who all think they are the best, that couldn't be arsed either.

    Maybe they should have picked a game that is actually played by the sim community?

    Apparently I didn't use enough exclamation marks on the side of that smiley, here, add some: !!!!!!!

    (Also, of course they're playing the official F1 game, like there's any options for a series to pick anything else when there's official too)

    So apparently they already drove the (Not the) AUS GP which was less official, but still included names like Lando Norris, Esteban Gutierrez and Stoffel Vandoorne.
    (Not the) BAH GP will add on top of them Latifi and Hülkenberg. Rest of the grid is a mix of eSports-drivers, lower class drivers, other sports stars (like Thibault Courtois from Real Madrid), YouTubers etc etc

    Looks like that (Not the) ... GP is different even if it's still official stuff.
