F1 Career Challenge is officially licenced by Formula One Administration Limited and positions you as a rookie who must prove your worth within the games career mode by passing a range of super licence tests, where upon you can take your rightful place amongst the elite drivers competing in the world's fastest and most glamorous motor sport.
Reputation will determine how far your career can take you and with which team. Develop and hone your car during test days where improvements will start to show over 4 successive seasons on the FORMULA ONE circuit.
LICENCED F1 CAREER MODE — Start off as a rookie driver without a super licence and prove you have what it takes. After you earn your licence, you must compete for a ride, develop your skills, complete test days and build your reputation over four successive years — can you win the world championship?
RACE AS YOURSELF — Create yourself as a driver in the game to challenge real-life F1 stars. Select your own helmet design and the pinnacle achievement – see your name at the top of the leader board.
