The F1 series was what got me started racing, after i felt that i needed to upgrade from Burnout. It was the game that opened my eyes virtual racing, and that the racing and not the crashing on car-games actually was very exciting! Although the series was a bit stuck on the same reskinned game in the early 2010s the latest series have gained a lot of momentum and are really impressive! Also, in my opinion, they are the best racing games for consoles, if you can live without a big range of cars.

To Preorder or not
Personally I would really suggest that you don’t preorder. The benefits of preordering are often very very small. As of rigt now, I actually don’t see any advantages, but they may come in some form of discount or exclusive content, that by definition can’t be vital to the game.
Theoretically, you are just showing the developers that you’ll buy anything without considering the quality. Remember, the only way to show that you like or don’t like the decisions a game has made, is with your wallet. It’s too late to critisize, once you’ve bought it, and you’ll have to wait for the next version to show them your thoughts.
That said, I know that many of you will actually buy anything F1 related, like I once did, and I can’t blame you. So if you do, check out the link bellow and order your copy already now. Or you can wait and make sure that it actually is worth it, which it probably is.
