Players of the official Formula 1 2020 video game will now be able to compete as the 2020 F2 grid with a free season update. The 2020 Championship went down to the thrilling final race weekend in Bahrain.
Codemasters will now allow players to re-write history on the official game, with the full 2020 line-up featuring all 11 teams, cars, and drivers including Mick Schumacher, our new Champion.
The F2 game option replicates its real-world counterpart with 12 weekends each made up of two races. The first, 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, 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.
“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,” said Lee Mather, F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters.
“F2 has proved very popular with our players since its debut in F1 2019, and we know they will enjoy re-writing recent history with the free 2020 update."
