We are absolutely delighted with the inclusion of F2, Senna and Prost, and Career Mode Driver Transfers, as major, new additions to the F1 franchise, as well as integrating league racing and F1 esports for fans who want to race competitively. Driver Transfers, in particular, are something that we know our players have craved for several years, and it's fantastic to now have that functionality integrated into our ten-year Career mode and build upon the seasonal rule changes we introduced in F1 2018 to create unique player storylines from season to season.
