Whoop! New teaser trailer time for the 2018 F1 game. Codemasters are revealing more details of the game over the French GP weekend, starting with this video featuring the current crop of Frenchies, and Carlos Sainz – their views on the return to Paul Ricard and the experience of the new game.
Not surprisingly the drivers only had positive things to say about their home GP:
“Of course the French Grand Prix is the one I am most looking forward to in the year,” said Haas F1 Team driver, Grosjean. “It will be my first time racing in my home Grand Prix and a lot of French fans are coming to support us.”
Gasly added: “I am massively excited. To have a home Grand Prix is a special feeling. You can really feel the support.”
The new F1 2018 game will be out on Friday 24th August 2018 on the usual XBOX One, PS4 and Windows PC formats. Here’s what the drivers had to say after their first go with the new game.
“I have been playing games since I was a kid… and I haven’t stopped,” said Ocon. “The games have evolved massively and are getting more and more realistic. It is still my routine to go training during the day and I play for one or two hours in the evening… and I find it very useful. When we don’t have a race weekend I keep racing on my own.”
“This is my first try on F1 2018 and I am super impressed. I am a big fan of the games and have played them since I was a kid”, added Gasly. “Every year it keeps getting better.”
Sainz commented: “I spend my time at home practising in the Formula 1 game and on the simulator at Renault. You can be sure that we do this kind of practice.”
