F1 2021 Free update to add Imola courses; Jeddah in November

F1 2021 On Wednesday, the second of three free tracks was added to Codemasters’ racing simulation game. Imola-the official name Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari-is now available in all game modes.

Imola hosted the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on April 18th, which is the second round of this year’s Formula One World Championship. It and Portugal’s Portimão circuit are the last-minute additions to F1’s 2020 and 2021 schedule due to COVID-19, forcing Codemasters to step up their efforts to build and add it to the game, as well as the Jeddah street circuit in Saudi Arabia. The track will be added to the game in November.

Rendering F1 courses with the kind of details that racing fans expect from video games is only part of the work involved. The developers of Codemasters must also train their AI drivers to find the best route through the route, and then handle traffic, overtaking and any other racing events during the race.

Look at Imola, on Pierre Gasly’s Scuderia AlphaTauri AT02:

Even including Portimão and Imola, F1 2021The calendar in the game still cannot be synchronized with all the matches in real life. The Istanbul Park of the Turkish Grand Prix held last weekend is not in the competition, and Codemasters announced that it has no plans to add it in the future. This is also a late addition to the game schedule for 2020 and 2021, when the COVID-19 pandemic canceled several dates during the two years.The Losel International Circuit in Qatar is also scheduled to participate in the Qatar Grand Prix on November 21; again, it will not come F1 2021.

Neither Qatar nor Turkey signed a contract for the 2022 F1 season, which may be the reason why Codemasters is not eager to build them. Next year’s calendar will include another new event and track, the recently confirmed Miami Grand Prix.But considering the backlog of course work and the fact that Codemasters will need two years to build Jeddah, the Miami Speedway appears F1 2022 can not guaranteeCodemasters will also deal with brand new vehicle specifications and rules next year, which involves almost everything in the physics and processing package iterated since 2014.

All this said, F1 2021Although their races were cancelled in real life, their courses in Shanghai, Montreal, Singapore, Japan, and Australia are still being raced (and available in professional mode and online racing leagues).

Wednesday’s patch also includes a special limited-time livery for Red Bull Racing: this is the retro design of the Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez that drove in Istanbul last weekend. Red Bull originally planned to use this camouflage at the Japanese Grand Prix to pay tribute to the engine supplier Honda’s F1 last season. It is based on the Honda RA 272 driven by American Richie Ginther in the 1965 Mexican Grand Prix. This was Honda’s first victory in F1. The uniform will continue in the game until November 15.
