Our writer Alleef went full Sebastian Vettel today as he tackled the Sepang F1 Circuit in Codemasters’ latest offering, F1 2017. It will be a bitter sweet weekend for Malaysians and F1 fans worldwide as this weekend marks the final Formula One race to be hosted at the circuit for a considerable period of time, following the FIA’s decision of not renewing the contract with Sepang International Circuit and what better way to mark it by witnessing how bad one of our crew members drive an F1 car.
While Alleef certainly write much better than he drives a virtual F1 car – hence excuse his awful driving here – one cannot deny the impressive graphics shown in the latest iteration of Codemasters’ game. The fact that this may be the last ever F1 race in the Sepang Circuit also mean that we may not see the track in any video games title in many years to come. So savor the moment, boys. This is one game racing fans would not want to miss.
What do you think of the graphics and even more so, Alleef’s driving? We are seriously considering on assigning him to more track shenanigans for the rest of the F1 season – just cuz we like seeing him run off-track!
Released late August, the game is now available on the PS4, Xbox One, PC and MacOs.
Alleef is part of the crew at Kakuchopurei and is an avid comics fan. You can follow his ramblings on Twitter here.
