Short of fielding phone calls from your mum, it’s hard to imagine what could have made last year’s F1 2020 any more comprehensive. So F1 2021 has literally added phone calls from your mum. It’s all part of the six-hour-long story mode, which sees you playing as two drivers from one of the lower F1 teams, struggling with a tricky teammate rivalry and the ever-present menace of Devon Butler, a fictional driver you may remember from the brief story section of F1 2019. Refresher: he’s a git, and you’ll want to beat him.
