Codemasters are once again preparing for their own season of F1 racing in F1 2016. They've announced a variety of new and improved features (most of which you can hear about in our recent interview with the studio), and the latest update details 22-player online races, and the introduction of the tyre-warming Formation Lap and the added pressure of manual starts.

Game designer Lee Mather said: "We strive to create a game that is as close to the actual sport as possible. We have listened to the feedback from our community and that has resulted in us introducing the Safety Car, Virtual Safety Car, Formation Lap, manual race starts and the host of other gameplay features that get us even closer to the real sport and add to the experience for the player.

"Increasing the multiplayer support to 22 players was extremely important to us," Lee added. "We want to be able to fill the whole grid with human players to create those great race moments and stories. It also provides greater support for online leagues."

REVIEW. Written by Daniel Andersen

"It's a vast improvement over last year's game, in no small part due to fact that the career mode is back."
