Nice to see the classic cars back. I'm looking forward to this after F1 2016 being a solid foundation for the next gen games.

All I wish for I'd that the career mode helmets allow for sponsors depending on what team you're driving for. Plus better design options.

Yeah it looks pretty good, looking forward to the classic cars, there's still 9 to be announced as well, I'm hoping that a 2007/8 car is in there (arguably not classic I know but it would be nice to have one from that era with those crazy looking cars).

Apparently there is going to be shorter version of tracks in this game too, so you'll be able to chose to race the Silverstone national circuit for instance in a custom race/online race.

At least they've finally come to their senses and are doing a summer release instead of a September release. Hopefully they'll release it sooner next time.

Edit: Just realized they are releasing it at the end of August. Just don't get why they do this.

Some footage coming out of the E3 show last week. I'm guessing the build is the same as 2016 so this might be improved for release.

So far they have the Ferrari 1995, 2002, 2004 and 2007, the Red Bull 2010, Williams 1992 and McLaren 1988 as classic cars. Should be good.

I've been having a think of what would be the perfect F1 game CM could make. Some ideas may be as far from possible as, well, possible - but for me I think we're at a stage in the gaming world where people want to completely immerse themselves in whatever they're playing.

Here's what I think should be included:

1. A better helmet creator. Options for adding your own designs or mixing and matching designs, plus choosing which manufacturer you wish to use (Schuberth, Bell, Arai etc.)
2. Sponsors to be allowed on all career helmets
3. A face/avatar creator - 2016's options were awful! Football games allow this so there's no excuse not to include this
4. Different options for how the drivers' hands hold the steering wheel - pedantic I know but different drivers have different styles
5. Official F1 timing graphics to be shown during qualifying and the race
6. Career mode - the hardest difficulty should disable flashbacks and session restarts if you crash your car or suffer any mechanical issues. If you're out, you're out
7. Get rid of the poxy driver rivalries and team objectives. Instead, just base your career on your final WDC standing and whether you have outperformed your team mate, and also number of incidents during the season
8. Press conferences - as in F1 2010, any answers you give will either warm you to the team and fans, or not... this should have more bearing on your career than the current race-by-race objectives or pre-selected driver rivalries
9. Options to approach teams yourself and not leaving it until you get offers at the end of the season. This should also have an effect on your current team's morale and fan perception of you (if you choose to approach everyone by mid-season, for example, then nobody will want you)
10. Choose your own cap style and even add your own signature - the PS4 controller will allow this
11. Allow players to drive the slow-down lap after the finish. Add a button for waving to the crowd (again - this should affect your fan base rating)
12. More mechanical failures - I've played the game for months and have only suffered one puncture mid-race
13. Stop the engineer asking to switch strategies every few laps. Enable the pause function to allow you to change strategy or confirm any changes. The current way is confusing and can lose you lap time
14. Allow an in-season helmet change (home race?) and options for changing the design for the following season and how it will look in the car that you're driving

And finally, for me at least - have past seasons in career mode so it actually feels like a career rather than run the same season over and over again! CM has been doing F1 since 2009 so there's no excuse not to bring this in now. I'd take this over the classic car content any day.

I just wish they'd extend the career mode to allow you to start in F2/GP3. Considering they are able to include classic cars, I don't see why it would be so difficult to add two more cars (after all, both are spec series). Both series race on tracks already in the game, so nothing else needs to be added there. Sure, there would be some other elements they would have to work on, but again, if they can add classic F1 cars... besides, it would be so much better to be able to have a realistic career. In an ideal world, performing well in F2/GP3 would attract:

a) opportunities to graduate to F2 (or even directly to F1) from GP3, and into F1 from F2
b) sponsorship opportunities, which perhaps could allow the opportunity to pay your way into F1, or into a stronger F2/GP3 team
c) opportunities to join a team's young driver programme, giving you access to test sessions, FP1 appearances, and potentially a direct route to either that team or one of the teams it supplies engines to

Even if they simply introduced F2/GP3 as places to start your career, and kept it as simple as doing well in either gives you the chance to move up the ranks and ultimately into F1, it would be such an improvement. I would buy that game on day one...

@ mistavega 23,

i agree with 1,3,5,6,7,8,9,11,12,13,14. I would add
The following.

A - allow us to see teammates set up. ( lets face it everyone struggles at some point and seeing your teammates set up would help.)

B - be able to upload real race stats after a race is completed to allow you to race that gp with actual telemetry as if you were there.

(To clear it up what i mean is your doing a season and going at the same pace actual f1 is going at and you race the same track as the actual race wkd. Now What if a few hours after the race your able to update your game with real time telemetry and race the same gp now with all the stats of what you saw. Cars will race at the same pace and youll feel as if you were actually in that gp. For different difficulty levels they'll add 2sec, 4 sec, 6 sec etc to model each difficulty level properly. It can be done Nba live 09 had a feature called nba live 365 with updated your game just like this and your opponent played at that same level you saw on tv.)

@ jenson understeer
I agree with having a feature where you come up through the ranks like karting, then you have to earn your super license , f2 then f1. Something along those lines would make you wanna play a few seasons.
