Lando Norris, Development F1 Driver for McLaren F1 team has said:
Getting behind the wheel for the first time was a really great feeling – after my test in the 2017 car in Hungary, I’m happy to confirm that these cars are much faster and more intense to drive, and that really comes across in the new game. I think people are going to have a lot of fun driving the new breed of Grand Prix car in F1 2017.
It was also a really nice experience to get to re-live several chapters of McLaren’s past by driving classic cars from 1988, 1991, ’98 and 2008, each representing a world championship success for the team. The 2008 title-winning car has tons of downforce, and is a lot of fun to throw about. The heritage cars are really the icing on the cake.
In addition, to all the official teams, cars drivers and circuits from the 2017 season, the F1 2017 game features 12 Classic Cars from McLaren, Ferrari, Renault, Williams and Red Bull Racing. The game also features 4 brand-new shortened track layouts in the USA, Japan, Britain, and Bahrain. There is also the chance to race on the historic Monaco circuit at night.
The F1 2017 game will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 25th, 2017.
