Description

F1 2011 is a racing game simulating the Formula 1 with the complete license for the season 2011. It is not an exact simulation like other games like Grand Prix Legends, but it still focuses more on the simulation side of the racing genre. Driving assists are available for inexperienced players.

Just like with the predecessor, the heart of the game is the career mode in which the player begins with a smaller team and tries to work his way up to the top (the attention of bigger teams comes with personal successes, solving the current team's goals and careful interviews with the press). As "headquarter" serves the team truck in which the player can look up statistics or advance his personal career with contract negotiations. For every race the player can choose between several configurations or set various details himself. Other playing modes besides the career are a custom grand prix, time trials, time attack and multiplayer.

The main changes in comparison to F1 2010 are the same as in the real-life formula one: two new courses, KERS (more speed for a short time) and DRS which is supposed to help during overtake manoeuvres. Other changes are safety cars, an overhauled AI, new graphical effects, slight changes with the press system and a co-op championship mode.
