Codemasters is back with the first in-game trailer for F1 2019, which is also the official videogame of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship. According to the official press release, "the trailer focuses on intense rivalries as the drivers jostle for position in the heat of the battle."

The aforementioned trailer celebrates 2019 F1 and 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship cars and drivers. The short video features the official F1 theme music written by Brian Tyler. This new F1 title brings back quite a few classic cars from the previous iterations of the legendary franchise. The list of 18 cars that return starts with the 2010 Red Bull RB6 and goes back in time way into the 1970s, the earliest car being the 1972 Lotus 72D.

Die-hard fans can get a few extra cars by buying the Legends Edition: Senna and Prost release (1990 Ferrari F1-90, 1990 McLaren MP4/5B, 2010 Ferrari F10, 2010 McLaren MP4-25) or the Anniversary Edition, which comes with the two 2010 cars mentioned above.

Obviously, F1 2019 also features all the official teams, drivers, and circuits present in the 2019 season. The good part is that F2 has been included as well and players will be able to complete the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship, which is set to arrive as a free digital update.

F1 2019 will be released at the end of next month for Windows PCs, as well as for Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 consoles.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
