F1 2021 will be releasing a premium digital deluxe edition, with which players can choose from seven greats of all time as the second driver of their racing team in the single player career mode “My Team”. However, since this is not a sweepstakes, players still have to work to acquire the drivers after paying the $ 74.99 for the game.
Players still need to build a racing team that is able to pay the drivers or meet their demands for prestige and odds. If my team’s second year is balanced like the first, then you probably won’t be able to afford these drivers until the final stages of your first season at the earliest.
Felipe Massa, rated 86, has the lowest salary of the seven and is $ 4 million. For comparison, the most expensive drivers to choose from to start your team F1 2020 There were a ton of Formula 2 youngsters, each asking for $ 1.5 million. As your team evolves in multi-year mode, you can lure each driver away from their current team. In additi on to the salary, there is also a cash buyout – Lewis Hamilton, for example, costs $ 19.5 million to buy in the first year. And you balance that against the constant development of the car.
It was a bit too easy to collect points early on F1 2020My team, even if you are driving at the high end of the difficulty, there was no real way to spend money to win. Racing teams have to manage sponsorship deals that pay the bonuses, but then it comes down to the engine you buy for the car – and Ferrari’s power plant costs as much as Massa’s salary.
The other drivers are: Michael Shumacher, Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost (these three had all deluxe-edition cameos for the past two years), Jenson Button, Nico Rosberg and David Coulthard, who had Schumacher’s 94 rating and 13 million Dollar salaries range up to Coulthard’s 87 and $ 4 million. No buyout price is mentioned as you are hiring these drivers as free agents. But one wonders if this means others, AI teams will be able to acquire them.
So these seven retired drivers are more suited to their superfans who might at some point enjoy putting Button or Rosberg in second place. The Digital Deluxe Edition also includes some customization elements (paintwork, fire suits, helmets) and some elements related to the “Brake Point” narrative mode, which we will learn more about later. It also gives players 18,000 PitCoin, and that’s the currency people use to pay for the Season Pass and tiered rewards for it F1 2020 introduced.
