If you rub against a wall in a hot lap, is it technically racing??

Sweet hot laps. So many.

I gotta go to the ATM.

Pre-ordering, however, is not racing. It's more akin to actually rubbing against a wall.

I usually have to pay extra for a sochi hot lap

Do you get an achievement for finishing Monaco as Pastor Maldonado?

The irony of using Sochi as a demo for F1 2014 while sanctions might prevent it from being an actual race this year. Delicious!

Hey Pastor.. Pastor Maldonado, Hey Pastor..

@gyrfal: F1 went to bahrain in the middle of the Bahraini uprising. Mere sanctions are no match for Bernie!

@elod: Bernie don't care!

The previous years game was a real gem so I hope they don't fuck it up this time. It's a little worrying seeing how little production went into this video compared to the previous year's teasers narrated by Ant Davidson...

So hyped for this! I almost got 200 hours of playtime from the last game. Can't wait.

It still looks really nice, but I can't wait to see what they do with the proper current gen versions next year.

The universe would fold in on itself and life as we know it would cease to exist.

You might be OK with eternity as ambient energy pulsating through space and time, but I am not. Let's pray that Pastor Maldonado never finishes that race.

Fun fact: In the F1 Race Stars Quick Look, Ryan totally picked Pastor Maldonado because he had the most F1 sounding name.

Should be one for Australia and Malaysia too!

Cant help but feel this game is more of a cash grab :(

Last years hotlap was much better.

@gyrfal: Oh it'll happen. Even if Bernie has to bribe every diplomat between Moscow and Kiev it'll happen.

Thanks to Drew and Danny, this isn't all nonsense anymore!

Think I might skip this year, wait for it to come to XONE/PS4 with the next instalment an all that.

(translation: I will almost definitely buy this at some point I'm just in denial about it right now)

Turbo sounds good.

Posted by Frump

I came to the comments to mention I could see a sad amount of polygons and flat edges on that car. Then I remembered it's only coming out on last gen consoles. I guess that makes sense.

It's true that if there's one person that could get around the sanctions it's Bernie. But this isn't a matter between Kiev and Moscow. If the EU decides to boycott Russian sporting events it would mean that no F1 teams based in an EU country (all of them if i'm not mistaken) would be barred from going racing in Russia. A more lenient form of sanctions would be to ban companies based in EU countries from advertising in Russian sporting events, which would mean we could see some creative liveries out on the track.

The track layout reminds me of the Valencia GP they dropped from the calendar a few years ago. That worries me a little since Valencia races, except for the very last one staged there, were usually pretty dull affairs.

i wonder if this will have the really obnoxious digital ads plastered all over some of the tracks

Man, they replicated this year's engine sound perfectly. It's just as awful as in real F1.

Edited by Jensonb

Oh hey look, it's that game that came out last year they're re-skinning to distract attention from the fact they delayed that other, better game and waited as long as possible to announce said delay.

Someone really needs to innovate replay cameras.

Posted by burgavo

My favourite thing about this video is probably the enthusiastic russian F1 fan at 01.29, for some reason that I saw him out of the corner of my eye and thought it was hilarious....

Posted by Corvak

The EU is talking about banning Russia from international competition over Ukraine (mostly F1 and FIFA, as they are headquartered within the EU)...so there is a chance that the Sochi race will only ever exist in this video game.

Yes they sound very lame this year but not as bad as in this clip. Especially the Toro Rosso car is a screamer and almost sounds like the GP2 cars so this is far from perfectly replicated.

The hottest of laps.

Posted by Dussck

My god, is it me or does this look outdated as hell? I like F1 racegames, but damn.
Also, when will they learn to properly move the TV camera's a bit more realistic? The center is always stuck to the center of the car, which looks so gamey. Gran Turismo 3 did this right about 14 years ago..

This track looks like a lazy clone/re-imagining of Yas Marina.

Was that an amusement park in the background?
