New F1 2011 Developer Diary Reveals Safety Car and Season Updates

by on September 16, 2011

Codemasters are delivering some more F1 goodness in the form of safety cars and season updates in their latest developer diary. What this means is that all of the updated rules for the 2011 season are in full effect in the game. KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System), DRS  (Drag Reduction System), new Pirelli tires, they are are all in there. With the addition of fully playable safety car scenarios where you need to worry about everything a real F1 driver would, this is looking like the F1 enthusiasts wet dream.

“Safety car – a lot of people have been asking us for it. We’d always said we’d only do it when it was absolutely right, so now it’s available in single player and multiplayer,” said Stephen Hood, Chief Games Designer.

“It’s the wild card in the pack,” added Paul Jeal, Senior Producer. “Maybe you’re out in front, maybe you think you’re out the points, and then this key event comes in. Can you dive into the pits and get a lap advantage on everyone else? You have to keep the distance to the car in front of you and behind, you need to do the weaving sequences to keep your tyres up to temperature”

If you didn’t believe it before then believe it now, Codemasters are here to bring you the definitive F1 title!
