EA Sports and Codemasters’ Formula 1 franchise is gearing up towards the release of F1 2021 in July. In promotion of the new game, Codemasters announced that seven legendary F1 drivers, highlighted by arguably the sport’s greatest racer, will be hitting the virtual tracks this summer and be bonuses in the F1 2021 Deluxe Edition.
The group of seven is headlined by legendary Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher. In his F1 career, Schumacher won 91 races in 308 races, not to mention seven World Championships. The full list of seven goes as follows:
- Michael Schumacher
- Ayrton Senna
- Alain Prost
- Jenson Button
- Nico Rosberg
- David Coulthard
- Felipe Massa
All seven legendary drivers can be used in game, and all of them will be a part of the driver market in My Team.
The Deluxe Edition of F1 2021 will include all seven of the drivers above, as well as a set of customization options, 18,000 PitCoin, a “in-game item pack inspired by the fictional stars of Braking Point,” and three days of early access starting on July 13.
Additionally, EA and Codemasters unveiled the cover for this year’s game. F1 drivers Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, and Charles Leclerc will grace the cover of F1 2021. Both Hamilton and Verstappen were on the cover of F1 2020.
The standard edition of F1 2021 will go live on July 16.
