As the F1 circus prepares to roll in to the UK this weekend, for what may well be one of the last few races at Silverstone, Codemasters have released a brand new trailer for their official F1 title, F1 2017. If you want to see how the pros handle the virtual world, then you’re not going to want to miss this!
The latest trailer for F1 2017 showcases Max Verstappen sitting down with the latest game in the stunning ‘Hall of Fame’ at Red Bull Racing Headquarters in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom.
Ahead of the British Grand Prix, you can get to see him fly around the short Silverstone circuit in what is a first for the series. You see, that’s because even though the new game will have all twenty official 2017 circuits included, F1 2017 will also include four shortened circuit variations, including ‘Silverstone Short’ – the circuit which Max Verstappen drove round in the 2017 Red Bull Racing RB13 and also the classic 2010 Red Bull Racing RB6 during his time with the new game recently.
Max said of his experience playing the new F1 2017 game: “I really like the game and it is a lot more fun to drive with the new cars. The graphics are a lot better, they’ve made the cars more realistic, and that’s always good. I like the detail on the classic cars involved and it’s always nice to drive those old legendary cars. I think it’s a great game, it’s definitely a lot of fun to play.”
In the trailer, Verstappen also comments on how the two cars feel to him compared to his real life experiences: “The 2017 RB13 feels really good in the game, with the extra grip, from the new 2017 car designs as well as from the wider tyres, resulting in faster cornering speeds which require more precision. In comparison, the classic RB6 is lighter, with a slower top speed, and later braking, and of course the biggest stand out being the sound of the engine.”
The four shortened circuit variations will be available in all game modes, and you’ll also have the option to race with either the 2017 models or the classic cars.
F1 2017 will release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come August 25th 2017.
