Codemasters is peeling back more of the F1 2020 curtain as we get closer to the July 10th launch date. Today we got a look at new gameplay featuring the graphically refreshed Monaco Grand Prix circuit and a slew of new in-game screenshots for desert.
Why was this gameplay released today? Because Codemasters wanted to give everyone a preview of the circuit ahead of the Virtual Grand Prix this weekend.
The hot lap gameplay features Pierre Gasly’s AlphaTauri car taking on the narrow corridors and tight corners of Monaco in expert fashion.
This weekend on Sunday, May 24th (10am pacific) you’ll be able to watch several F1 drivers take on the virtual Circuit de Monaco on the official F1 YouTube channel. It will be available to watch live on other platforms like Twitch as well. Just check out the press release below for details.

F1 2020 Heads to Monaco with New Hot Lap Ahead of Virtual Grand Prix
Larkspur, Calif. (May 21, 2020) – Codemasters® today premieres the first F1® 2020 in-game hot lap on Circuit de Monaco ahead of the iconic circuit’s appearance at this weekend’s Virtual Grand Prix. On the weekend where it was initially scheduled in the F1 calendar, the hot lap, recorded by the F1 2020 development team, features Pierre Gasly’s newly re-branded AlphaTauri.
Considered one of the most challenging circuits in the F1 calendar, navigating Monaco’s tight street circuit takes immense skill and courage with little chance to take your foot off the gas from start to finish. F1 2020’s iteration is no different, with a full track visual uplift now complete following the updates in F1 2019.
This Sunday, May 24, F1 drivers including Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, George Russell, Nicholas Latifi, and Antonio Giovinazzi return for the latest Virtual Grand Prix on F1 2019’s Circuit de Monaco. The live broadcast starts at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch, Weibo, and Facebook channels alongside several international broadcast partners.
F1 2020 will be released on Friday, July 10, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox One X, PC, and Google Stadia (MSRP $59.99). Players who purchase the F1 2020 Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition (MSRP $69.99) will receive exclusive content and three days early access.
