But all in all, they are really good. Especially the AI’s in Barcelona, which is to look out for as well in Hungary and Russia.
The newest highlights in terms of the tracks is the brand-new street circuit through the Azerbaijani capital of Baku, an extremely ruthless, high speed monster equipped with blind 90 degree corners and an unexpected narrow uphill chicane that will keep even the toughest Formula One players up at night.
Even the firm circuits that have been in the series from the start have brought on a new spin thanks to the newest mode to fine-tune the time-of the day-settings added by the Codemasters. Have you ever imagined what would Singapore Formula One racing event would look life if it was held as a day race? The Formula One 2016 will surely bring it to life for you.
