The rest of us will have to wait until Friday when the remaining versions of the game become available for players.

The excitement is building, as is the anticipation, so here's all you need to know about the game!

Aiden Jackson & Braking Point

Aiden Jackson will be the protagonist for Braking Point. That means we will all be jumping into his race boots when F1 2021 arrives and trying to lead him from F2 up into Formula 1.

The latest F1 2021 trailer has given us a look at the kind of on- and off-track drama we can expect from Braking Point.

From wheel-to-wheel racing to scuffles in the paddock, it looks like Jackson will be in the thick of the action.

The F1 veterans among you may have spotted a familiar face in there too...

Devon Butler

Whilst missing out on F1 2020 with the release of My Team, Devon Butler makes a return in Braking Point. It looks like we will be having to go toe-to-toe with man we all love to hate once again.
