A new trailer for Codemasters’ F1 2017 game dropped yesterday and it confirms the inclusion of a pretty special car. Before Sebastian Vettel made the move to Scuderia Ferrari, he was at Red Bull Racing and absolutely dominating the sport.
In F1 2017 Players will be able to pilot the very same car that Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber drove to dominate the field and eventually (for Vettel) win the championship in 2010.
While it is weird to consider a car from 2010 as a “Classic”, its still pretty cool that players will be able to drive it!
Check out the new trailer and press release below.
