Expanded Young Driver Test
Based on the real world event, the Young Driver Test based at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina, where young drivers set out to earn a drive in FORMULA ONE, is expanded and tuned to ease novice players into the world of FORMULA ONE. Day One will use tutorials and explanatory videos to get new players quickly racing competitively. Day Two sets a series of increasingly demanding challenges, inviting repeat plays as gamers set to improve their score and master elite driving techniques, and unlock further race seats for their career.

Mid-Session Saves
Mid-session saves allows players to experience a complete long race weekend at their own pace rather than commit the 180 minutes plus session time required to complete a race weekend in one go.

Grand Prix Mode Returns
F1 2013 reinstates the Single Player Championship Mode. Players can once again step into the shoes of their favourite driver and race in a single race or complete a full or custom FORMULA ONE season in the pursuit of racing glory.

Full RaceNet Integration
Codemasters’ free Community Hub RaceNet will extend players’ FORMULA 1 experience in the game and beyond the box. F1 2012 launched with RaceNet in beta mode and has already seen over 36 million races completed by registered members. In F1 2013, RaceNet which launched in full with GRID 2™, will offer connected players regular in-game challenges, scenarios, community-wide challenges, visual stats and game progress updates to compare with their friends. Access for players is free via desktop, mobile or via dedicated apps allowing players to stay connected to their F1 2013: CLASSIC EDITION experience, and their progress in other Codemasters racing games, wherever they are.

Does classic edition have everything that the standard edition has -- that wasn't clear to me. Price difference?

The inclusion of drivers cars and tracks from previous decades is a awesome addition to a great F1 series.

Expanding the tracks and cars in the game by adding old school stuff is perhaps the greatest idea ever by Codemasters in this series. Brands Hatch & Imola are great stuff. Still not buying the game, perhaps next year. I'd like to see more tracks and cars, it would be awesome trying a race with Fangio, Senna and Schumacher on it.

Won't be getting it...bought 10,11 and 12 and every year you win by a mile on some tracks and come dead last on others...all in the same car. The balance between tracks is way off...and until they fix that I won't be buying any of their F1 games.

I wonder if the "Classic" parts of the game will have broadcast styles to mimic the decades they are from.

They do, yes.

Just nitpicking a bit but the 90's content has half sort of 90's graphics and half 2000's.

It's also been confirmed that you can race the 2013 content on the classic circuits as well

Very excited for this game. Picked up F1 2012 from XBL on digital download last month...haven't played any other game since. I've got a lot of improving to do (still play with AI on intermediate and some assists), but I am definitely getting this day 1. I really want to do 100% races, and knowing that I can save in the middle of them makes that a much more realistic possibility now. Also, glad to have GP mode where I can just be a driver and run through a season with them. Can't wait.

Are the 1980s classic cars going to drive authentically with lots of horsepower, little downforce, H-pattern gearbox, etc.? The 1990s cars, depending on when they model them, could have electronic aids like launch control, traction control, active suspension, and a semi-automatic gearbox. If so, this sounds interesting...

Mid-race saves sound great.

I never had this issue. Sounds like you are just much better at some tracks than others.

Interesting Q&A over at Virtualr.net - http://www.virtualr.net/f1-2013-faq-available

I think I may stick with the standard edition. I'm just now getting into F1 and don't really know much about the history of the sport. I can appreciate it some since I saw the Senna movie but outside of that it just doesn't have enough appeal/sentimental meaning to me.
