F1 2017 - Lando Norris McLaren Gameplay Trailer


Quote:
Exciting young racer and McLaren F1 test driver Lando Norris hopped into the F1 2017 hot-seat to test drive a host of historic McLaren cars, as well as the striking MCL32 from this year's championship. Here's what he had to say on it:

“Getting behind the wheel for the first time was a really great feeling - after my test in the 2017 car in Hungary, I’m happy to confirm that these cars are much faster and more intense to drive, and that really comes across in the new game,” commented Norris. “I think people are going to have a lot of fun driving the new breed of Grand Prix car in F1 2017.”

He continued: “It was also a really nice experience to get to re-live several chapters of McLaren’s past by driving classic cars from 1988, 1991, ’98 and 2008, each representing a world championship success for the team. The 2008 title-winning car has tons of downforce, and is a lot of fun to throw about. The heritage cars are really the icing on the cake.”

I have to say that I prefered Codemasters' old videos, where they would simply run a perfect lap on the respective track before a race week-end. They should have done something like this here, and have the driver comment on the experience. Well, they kinda did that, but they went for the replay camera angles instead of the driver's view, reducing the race footage to visual background noise...

I liked the old videos too. They put you in the seat and took you for a ride.

The game has probably been in development longer than this kid has been alive! FFS I'm getting old!

Get off my lawn!
