F1 2013 News Post

PlayStation.Blog has posted a Q&A session with F1 2013 Creative Director, Steve Hood as they talk about full grids with classic cars, pit stops, AI (especially in the corners), what's different this year, slipstreaming, in-game saves and more.

How will the classic content work – will it be races or time trial?

Steve Hood: There are Classic Races, online and offline. So you can play versus your friends or against the AI. In fact you can mix and match by adding AI opponents into an online race. You can also drive these Classic cars in Time Trial, Time Attack and another soon to be announced mode.

Full press release below.

Senna has his own game being created on the PC by the Brazilian guys that made Game Stockcar.

What's so hard to understand... Codemasters will only use drivers / cars / tracks in the game that they have signed the rights for... They're not EA sports...

They also stated that they had chosen not to feature any deceased drivers.

But they'll feature the track that took the best driver in Formula 1 history.

The track didn't take him... A dodgy steering column and then a suspension arm did though...
