Fans of F1 will be excited by the news that Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost will be renewing their rivalry for F1 2019, which launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 25.
The official game of the FIA Formula One World Championship, the game will feature the likenesses and cars of the two F1 legends, as well as their likenesses in the game’s career mode- exclusively for those who order the game’s ‘Legends Edition’.
For those who’d like to have a nice google- those cars are the 1990 McLaren MP4/5B for Senna and the Ferrari F1-90 for Prost. The two racers were massive in the F1 scene during the 80s and 90s, with Senna being the subject of a 2011 documentary, after his death in a crash at the 1995 San Marino Grand Prix.
“Fans can see from the new cover art design that F1® 2019 has a strong theme of rivalry running through it, just like the main sport itself. As such, we are absolutely delighted to have resurrected F1®‘s greatest ever rivalry between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost,” said Paul Jeal, F1® Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Their rivalry began right back in the 1984 season and reached one of the most dramatic ever climaxes on the first lap of the Japanese Grand Prix during the 1990 season. It’s a rivalry which has transcended way beyond the sport and is regarded as the greatest of all time by F1® fans. We know our community will love that the two legends of the sport have finally been immortalised together in our game.” Says “We’re also extremely excited to be bringing the FIA Formula 2 Championship to the franchise. It’s consistently been one of the most requested features from our community and it comes at a perfect time with the top three drivers from 2018 in George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon progressing to F1® for this season. We can’t wait to unveil more details on how this is integrated into the career mode in the coming weeks.”
