F1 2017 Career Mode Details

POSTED ON ON August 03 | VIEWS 2775

F1 2017 has a massively expanded Career Mode that introduces invitational events at key points during the regular F1 season, where you will get to drive 12 classic F1 cars in a host of different events including overtake challenges, pursuit events, checkpoint, and time attack challenges. 





The classic cars are also playable in all other areas of the game, and can be raced as both single and multi-class – C1 and C2 – races. Eagle-eyed fans will notice a guest appearance of both single and multi-class racing in this trailer too. Although you don’t take part in those forms of racing within the actual career mode itself, we wanted to showcase that classic cars can race together on track at the same time as there was some confusion as to whether that was the case.

In addition to the invitational events, the Career Mode offers a huge amount of extra depth with 115 possible Research and Development upgrades (over 4 ½ times as many as in F1 2016 – check out our awesome “tech tree” 21 seconds into the trailer), new practice programmes to master, as well as increased importance being given to the management and reliability of your car’s engine and gearbox elements.
 
The Research and Development consists of four different categories that you’ll able to upgrade, Powertrain, Chassis, Aerodynamics and Durability, though you can go with the ‘Recommended Upgrade’ if this is something that you don’t want to think about too much.
 
You’ll also need to manage the six key components which each make up a modern F1 power unit, as well as work to develop team skills such as pit stop times, Research and Development speed and new part reliability.
 
As well as the 20 official circuits from the current season, we’ve also introduced four new shortened circuits at Britain, Bahrain, USA and Japan, while also allowing you to take on the iconic Monaco street circuit at night.
