Codemasters has revealed the full list of classic Formula 1 race cars that are featured in F1 2018. These include six iconic cars from the 1970s and 1980s, which join the already-announced 2009 Brawn and 2003 Williams. Furthermore, all the classic cars found in F1 2017 will make the jump over to this year’s title.

The new additions for F1 2018 include James Hunt’s 1976 championship-winning McLaren M23D and Niki Lauda’s Ferrari 312 T2. Both cars featured in the 2013 film ‘Rush’ and are joined by two championship-winning Lotus cars. These include Emerson Fittipaldi’s 1972 Lotus and Mario Andretti’s 1978 Lotus 79.


The 1979 Ferrari 312 T4, which Jody Scheckter drove as he beat his teammate Gilles Villeneuve to the title, and the 1982 McLaren MP4/1B driven by John Watson and Lauda round up the new additions to F1 2018’s classic cars roster.

“We are delighted to bring 20 classic cars to F1 2018,” says Lee Mather, Game Director of F1 2018. “The classics were extremely popular in last year’s game so we naturally wanted to offer our players even more choice this time. The 70s and 80s cars offer a whole new challenge and compared to the modern-day cars. They look and sound incredible.”

As a reminder, all 12 classic cars from F1 2017 are also featured in F1 2018 – and the full list of those can be found below:
