F1 2019 Hands-On Impressions (Full Throttle Media)

Full Throttle Media recently had the opportunity to play an early build of F1 2019 and came away very impressed. We’ve posted some bullets below, but you can read their full impressions here.

  • The HUD elements that display throughout races have been overhauled to mimic those as seen in real-world F1 races. These include on-screen indicators for penalties and fastest lap records, which are redesigned to match those from televised broadcasts.
  • The addition of F2 also ties into Career Mode, which has received substantial changes in this year’s title. Everyone will begin their Career in Formula 2 and will choose which team they wish to drive for before participating in the Driver Academy. Here, you’ll pick the team you’d like to transfer to when you eventually transition into Formula 1 – and if you select correctly, you’ll even receive additional perks.
  • Codemasters has also developed a “completely different” handling mode for its F2 vehicles compared to those used in Formula 1. “They are completely different – setup from the ground up,” Mather noted. “So even like the tires are obviously totally different, and then the physics of the car is completely built around Formula 2.”
  • Codemasters is introducing dedicated league racing integration into its online offerings. League racing organizers of all types will have the ability to form their own leagues from within the game itself without the need of using external websites or forums.
  • Codemasters is also expanding its replays system in F1 2019 with the introduction of a highlights reel. “So, anybody who’s watched Formula 1 knows that after the race, there’s always the snappy highlights reel with all the exciting overtakes and incidents in the race, and that’s essentially what that does,” Mather revealed.

  1. Really excited about 19.  A lot of the things I was hoping for have been added.  Only thing missing was ability to start your own team which would be cool.  Hopefully that's an addition for next years game

    This! I am an admitted novice in F1 but love driving...if I could be solely a driver without having to worry about my setups or looking for setups online elsewhere...what a gift...please integrate this ability into the game!
    Holy smokes... what's with all the spam in this thread?
    I'm excited as always for this one. This series has made me a fan of the sport. It's a blast to play. I'm not sure how I feel about the career mode transferring drivers from F2 into my career as rivals to follow me through the mode. I hope we can choose a starting point and avoid that. Love the addition of F2, but I don't want those guys into my career mode replacing current drivers. I'd like to start my career still with the main list of drivers.
    I think a better idea would have been working your way through F2 and the main rival you develop in F2, comes with you into F1, and you get to create a team, and you end up teammates, fighting each other as rivals to be #1 driver. Either that or working through F2 and then starting in F1 replacing a driver. I'd be ok with guys moving up as others retire, but I'd at least want a season with the regulars before changes start happening.
    That being said, very disappointed creating a team isn't included yet.
    And is it just me, or does the game look even better this year?! Hard to believe, the graphics have always been top notch, but the screens look better. The sounds in the videos they've released too, especially in the replays, sound way better too.

    From what I've read, the F2 season in career mode is the 2018 season and the F2 guys who transfer into F1 are the actual F1 rookies form 2019 Norris, Russel and Albon. So no actual drivers would be replaced with F2 guys if I understood correctly.

    Ohhh Well that would be good then. I guess I misunderstood. Still would have loved a create a team option though. Then have the real struggle of building my team from the ground up. Although... I suppose I could do that if I drove for Williams. :lol:
    Is it possible to just watch the races in that game?
    Or do i have to drive by myself.
    I have no wheel and don't intend to buy one.
    I would just like to take over a team make the setup of the car and then let the cpu drive.
    Possible?

    This is not something you can do in this F1 series. However they have a mobile game called F1 Manager for this kind of thing, and a game that I enjoy on PC/Steam is Motorsport Manager which is a bit deeper (but not F1 licensed) experience.

    The only aspect which can improve this game in my opinion...if this could be confirmed, pre order immediately...such a great racing sim.
