It's just a little bit over 15 days left for Codemasters to release F1 2020. Going by the trailer and reading various articles related to it, F1 2020 has the potential to become one of the best F1 games to be ever made.

So what is new? F1 2020 allows the players to create their own F1 team and battle it out for the championship. A feature that many of the players had been asking for a long time. The player not only drives but is also responsible for all other aspects of the team such as car development, getting sponsors, recruiting drivers, and others.

Apart from this, the game will also allow the players to compete in a full season of the F2 series.

The Schumacher edition will allow the players to drive around the circuit in some of the legendary cars used by seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher.
