Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is one of the world’s most
legendary race circuits. Home to the Belgian Grand Prix, this iconic track has
delivered some of the most immense and thrilling racing action in Formula 1 history.
In his latest video from the Codemasters F1 2018 Preview event, which took
place in London this past week, Matt212
takes the Haas Formula 1 race car out onto Spa-Francorchamps for a quick 3-lap
Grand Prix race weekend.
The video highlights the different camera options available
when driving in F1 2018, including the full cockpit view with the controversial
‘halo’ on display. Matt notes that the halo isn’t too distracting or obtrusive when
driving, but it’s certainly noticeable. Driving through Eau Rouge – defined as
the most thrilling corner in Formula 1 history, is always an exhilarating experience,
but the halo in cockpit cam immerses you even further when tackling this infamous
turn in F1 2018.
The video also highlights foggy weather conditions on Spa-Francorchamps,
which are new to this year’s Formula 1 racing game. As you’d expect, it adds
another dynamic element to the game’s line-up of different conditions and makes
you think that a thunderous downpour is imminent. Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps also
looks as slick as you’d expect in F1 2018, and it’s fair to say it has never looked
better in the Formula 1 game franchise. Keep in mind, this is taken from the Xbox One X
version of the game.
F1 2018 will be available
on August 24th, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It features the
full roster of teams, drivers and circuits of the 2018 season, as well as a
selection of 20
classic cars. Be on the lookout for additional coverage soon, but in the
meantime, don’t miss this in-depth 40-minute
