Codemasters has today released a new trailer for F1 2018, the official videogame of the 2018 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, that showcases the return of the French Grand Prix to the calendar by talking to the local F1 drivers about the recreation of their home circuit in the new game. French nationals, Romain Grosjean, Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly, as well as Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Carlos Sainz, talked to Codemasters about the new Circuit Paul Ricard and their experience with the game.
This new trailer for F1 2018 shows the first ever gameplay footage of the Circuit Paul Ricard as the four drivers navigate their way around the track, talking about their experiences.
Haas F1 Team driver, Grosjean, said:
“Of course the French Grand Prix is the one I am most looking forward to in the year. It will be my first time racing in my home Grand Prix and a lot of French fans are coming to support us.”
“I have been playing games since I was a kid… and I haven’t stopped. 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.”
Reflecting on the feedback of the drivers, Lee Mather, Game Director, F1 2018 said:
“It is fantastic for us to get time with the real drivers. These are the guys who know what it is really like to drive these incredible cars and to have them give honest feedback is always extremely valuable. The fact that they were all positive about the game and the direction in which we are taking it is great to hear.”
F1 2018 will release on August 24th!
