Today Codemasters released a new hot lap video for F1 2014. The hot lap is set by Daniel Ricciardo’s Red Bull RB10 and marks the return of Austria’s Spielberg circuit to the FORMULA ONETM calendar, which brings a classic track with dramatic changes in elevation back to top level motorsport after over a decade’s absence.
It is the first time the track has featured in an official FORMULA 1 video game from Codemasters and is one of four circuits which offer new gameplay experiences in F1 2014, including the new Sochi Circuit in Russia, the return of the Hockenheimring to the calendar which last held a race in 2012 and the BAHRAIN GRAND PRIXTM which was run as a night race for the first time in 2014.
This year, Nico Rosberg’s Mercedes won at the stunning nine-turn circuit which was based upon the old A1 ring and last hosted a FORMULA ONE race in 2003. It records some of the quickest lap times on the calendar and the undulating track features a testing combination of fast and slow corners which make for thrilling racing.
F1 2014 will arrive on October 17th for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows PC and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. Codemasters will then introduce a new FORMULA 1 title in 2015 the Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows PC and for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system. With more to be announced through production for both titles, follow Codemasters F1 games blog and social channels on Twitter and Facebook for updates.
