Classic Ferrari Trio Joins F1 2017’s Historic Car Lineup

Codemasters continues to reveal the classic machines included in F1 2017 ahead of its release later this August. Officially announced last month, this year’s F1 game promises to be a significant step forward for the franchise.

Following its own trend, Codemasters has announced three new additions to the classic lineup, all bearing the Scuderia Ferrari badge. Documenting the team’s dominant ways across three different eras of the sport, the trio will complement this year’s chassis.

1995 Ferrari 412 T2

The 1995 contender driven by Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger kicks things off in style. Alesi drove the 412 T2 to victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, for his one and only race win. The T2 would ultimately take third in the Constructors’ standings with 73 points.

2004 Ferrari F2004

Next up is the 2004 season contender helmed by the team of Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello. Continuing the team’s success beginning in 1999, the F2004 rocketed the team to its sixth consecutive Constructors’ title.

The F2004 remains one of the most dominant cars ever raced, claiming twelve pole positions, fifteen race victories and a number of lap records across the 2004 season.

2007 Ferrari F2007

Rounding out the list is Ferrari’s 53rd single-seater, the F2007. Driven by the team of Felipe Massa and Kimi Räikkönen, the 2007 contender is best known for taking “The Iceman” to his first and so far only World Championship title.

Edging out Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso by a solitary point, the F2007 is the last Ferrari to bring both championships to the team since 2004.

 

As previously revealed, the classic roster will also include the 2002 Ferrari F2002, 1992 Williams FW14B, and the 1988 McLaren MP4/4. The latter classic will be a pre-order bonus, as well as part of the Day One edition of F1 2017.

F1 2017 releases on the weekend of the Belgian Grand Prix, August 25. It will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
