I've been enjoying my time with 2012, but I'm going to have to spring for 2013
There is a new game in the pipeline called ‘F1 2013', and it is a racing simulator based on the 2013 F1 season. That much is clear. But, contained within is a section called 'F1 Classic', introduced by the one and only Murray Walker, and here's where it gets interesting.Codemasters page
Well, interesting for those of a certain disposition, because in this version, you will be able to pilot classic Formula One machinery from the 1980s and play as drivers such as Mario Andretti, Emerson Fittipaldi, Gerhard Berger and the moustachioed agent of monotone himself, Nigel Mansell. So far, the roster of cars confirmed are the 1980 Williams FW07B, 1988 Williams FW12 and 1988 Lotus 100T. Some Ferraris will appear as well.
There's a 'classic edition' version of this game available too, which unlocks some 90s gems from Williams and Ferrari - including the 1992 Williams FW14B and 1996 Williams FW18 - as well as drivers including David Coulthard, Jacques Villeneuve, Eddie Irvine, Alain Prost and more.
There will be classic circuits too, including Brands Hatch, Imola, Estoril and Jerez, and judging by the screenshots above, it all looks rather dandy indeed. You'll be able to go split-screen, online, and experience "new and returning game modes" that will blow your tiny minds.
