F1 2020 My Team mode details
Players will get more control over their F1 crew in the new game
Codemasters has announced new details about My Team, a new feature in F1 2020 video game.
Players begin by creating their own driver, a unique visual identity and brand for their team by picking a livery, creating their color scheme and setting a team logo. From here they’re responsible for signing their first key sponsor, which will fund the opportunity to sign a real power unit supplier and second driver from the 2019 F2 grid. Players will have fewer resources and limited equipment. See facilities improve and grow to become a fully-fledged professional F1 team.
Before unveiling the new car, players will face the media to answer a series of questions ranging from car performance to race predictions. The responses have a direct impact on the initial strength of the car. Once finalized, the car is revealed to the world via a cinematic trailer.
Another key off-track focus is managing the team during the week. How players manage, allocate and use the time available will affect everything for the upcoming race weekend. Use time to manage staff activities, generate funds and keep the team motivated. Team activities often have pros and cons, so sending a driver to fitness camp could have a knock-on effect such as less time dedicated to sponsors.
My Team allows players to negotiate the driver market when choosing a teammate. Compare F1 and F2 drivers based on Experience, Racecraft, Awareness and Pace, alongside their market value and the level of acclaim they bring to the team.
F1 2020 will release on Friday, July 10, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox One X, PC, and Google Stadia (MSRP $59.99). Players who purchase the F1 2020 Deluxe Michael Schumacher Edition (MSRP $69.99) will receive exclusive content and three days early access starting on July 7, 2020.
