Codemasters really is spoiling us with F1 2017 gameplay ahead of its release on the 25 August for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC – including 50% races, classic car footage and trailers.

But, we haven’t really had an extensive look at career mode in the game, until now – with YouTuber Tiametmarduk giving us a proper run-through.

As you’ll see in the video above, there’s new cinematics in F1 2017 and a bit more of the “live the life” aspect, plus the massively extended Research & Development feature (which now features engine and gearbox management).

It also provides us with more juicy footage of the game itself, which looks pretty damn good to us, and showcases the wider range of driver creation options too – any helmet designs that catch your eye?
