Here, we see the launch preview of F1 2014, which brings the current season’s cars, drivers, teams, and turbocharged / hybrid powertrains to the gaming stage.

Produced by Codemasters, F1 2014 also adds to the (virtual) racing with a new driver evaluation system that dynamically adjusts the game to match the player’s skill level, plus a shorter career mode option, and an even simpler “Very Easy” mode.

Perhaps most importantly for the dedicated gamer, the new F1 2014 game includes the new Russian and Austrian GP circuits added to the calendar this year.

The game will arrive this Friday, October 17, and will be available on PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
