Codemasters has had the rights to develop all official F1 games since 2008, and the new agreement represents the longest extension in the partnership's history. Frank Arthofer, director of digital and licensing at Formula 1, said: “Since 2008, Codemasters has been an invaluable partner to the franchise, consistently creating games of the highest quality and enabling fans to get even closer to the world of F1”.

The F1 series of games have generally been well received by critics over the years. This year's game F1 2019 is no different and currently sits with an 89 Metascore over on Metacritic.
