F2 in F1 2019

F1 2019 will let you play as Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in the 'F1 2019 Legends Edition', with a Formula 2 mode included as hinted by the first trailer.

A new trailer has been released for the game with the tagline: 'rise up against your rivals'.

Gamers will get access to Senna's 1990 McLaren MP4/5B and Prost's Ferrari F1-90 with eight race challenges included and extra multiplayer liveries when F1 2019 releases for Xbox One, PC and PS4 on June 28.

The pair's likenesses have also been modelled in-game. 

To celebrate the 10th Formula 1 game from Codemasters, the 'F1 2019 Anniversary Edition' will also include the 2010 Ferrari F10 of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, as well as the McLaren MP4-25 of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. Both cars will also feature in the Legends Edition and all of the classic F1 cars from F1 2018 will be included in the game.

The game's box art changes for each territory; in the UK and for the global release, Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel will be featured. The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg get Max Verstappen and Hamilton; Charles Leclerc and Pierre Gasly feature in France; Carlos Sainz and Hamilton in Spain; Robert Kubica and Hamilton in Poland; and Lance Stroll features alongside Hamilton in Canada.

The Formula 2 Championship will be added, with the 2018 season included at launch and the 2019 season to be added at a later date. 

"Fans can see from the new cover art design that F1 2019 has a strong theme of rivalry running through it, just like the main sport itself," said Codemasters F1 franchise director Paul Jeal. 

"As such, we are absolutely delighted to have resurrected F1’s greatest ever rivalry between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.

"Their rivalry began right back in the 1984 season and reached one of the most dramatic ever climaxes on the first lap of the Japanese Grand Prix during the 1990 season. It’s a rivalry which has transcended way beyond the sport and is regarded as the greatest of all time by F1 fans.

"We know our community will love that the two legends of the sport have finally been immortalised together in our game.

"We’re also extremely excited to be bringing the FIA Formula 2 Championship to the franchise," he added.

"It’s consistently been one of the most requested features from our community and it comes at a perfect time with the top three drivers from 2018 in George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon progressing to F1 for this season. We can’t wait to unveil more details on how this is integrated into the career mode in the coming weeks."
