Codemasters F1 Franchise Game Director Lee Mather said:
“Today is a celebration of all the hard work from the studio, and it’s exciting to get F1 2020 in the hands of our players.
Celebrating Michael’s record-setting seven World Championships in a season where Lewis Hamilton is aiming to match his record is fitting.
Adding his iconic cars is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, and they will prove incredibly popular.”
Recorded by the F1 2020 development team on the stunning Red Bull Ring, the final entry in the Hote Lap series featured Esteban Ocon in his striking Renault. The video footage of that can be viewed below.
