Codemasters has lifted the curtain off its cover art for F1 2018. As before, it’ll appear with different drivers based on the location you’re buying the game from. What’s different this time of round is the new theme, which is all about making headlines.

Last year’s Formula 1 game release had different artwork for Australia, the Americas, and the Netherlands/Belgium/Luxembourg, as well the main cover art used in the UK and Ireland. For F1 2018, Codemasters has opted to have different driver line-up versions for Australia, Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands/Belgium/Luxembourg and Mexico, as well as the main cover art for the Americas, the UK and Ireland.

The Day One ‘Headline Edition’ of F1 2018 also contains two exclusive classic cars – the 2009 Brawn BGP-001 and the 2003 Williams FW25.
