F1 2020 gets an F2 2020 Season free update

Codemasters has released a new free update for F1 2020 that adds F2 2020 season to it. As the press release reads, the F2 game option replicates its real-world counterpart with 12 weekends, each made up of two races.

The first race, known as the Feature Race, follows a standard format with drivers lining up based on their qualifying times, and points awarded to the top 10 placings. The second race, Sprint Race, sees the Feature Race top eight positions reversed in a shorter race, with fewer points awarded to the top eight drivers. For both, there are two additional points available for the fastest lap.

Lee Mather, F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters, said:

“Having witnessed an incredible end-of-season battle between Mick Schumacher and Callum Ilott, we’re delighted to give players the free F2 2020 season update. F2 has proved very popular with our players since its debut in F1 2019, and we know they will enjoy rewriting recent history with the free F1 2020 update. The update enables players to compete with Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin before they join forces as part of Haas F1 Team for 2021.”

As always, Steam will download this update the next time you launch its client.
