Codemasters released a new video for F1 2018 which showcases the roster of classic cars that will feature in the game. A new class of six iconic cars from the 1970s and the 1980s joins the already announced 2009 Brawn and 2003 Williams, as well as all of the returning classic cars from last year’s game, to take the total number of historic cars to twenty.
These cars include James Hunt’s legendary 1976 championship winning McLaren M23D and Nikki Lauda’s Ferrari 312 T2. They are joined by two Championship winning Lotus cars: Emerson Fittipaldi’s 1972 Lotus and Mario Andretti’s 1978 Lotus 79. The 1979 Ferrari 312 T4, as driven by Jody Scheckter as he beat teammate Gilles Villeneuve to the title, and the 1982 McLaren MP4/1B driven by John Watson and Lauda make up the class.
As well as the twenty classic cars, F1 2018 will feature all of the official teams, the drivers and circuits from the enthralling 2018 season, including Circuit Paul Ricard and the returning Hockenheim ring. The game challenges you to ‘Make Headlines’ in the deepest career mode in the series to date. You will become immersed in the world of F1 more than ever before as you develop your reputation both on and off the track, with time-pressured media interviews that will directly influence your progression in the sport.
