With just one week until release, Codemasters has revealed the final F1 22 car models. Based on the redesigned cars in the 2022 F1 season, F1 22's new cars will boast improved aerodynamics and larger tyres and wheels, making them heavier to drive.

PS5 features

Loading in and out of tracks, menus, and modes is a frustration for racers. Thankfully, the PS5 has done away with a lot of the waiting around.

The lightning-fast SSD in the PS5 means that you get out of the garage and onto the track faster than ever before, while features like 3D audio and the adaptive triggers & haptics feedback from the DualSense controller will make you feel like you're in the game like never before.

FEEL EVERYTHING: The DualSense brings a kind of force feedback to controller players

We also fully expect the game to run at 4K & 60fps from day one on the PS5, but this is not confirmed yet. There will likely also graphics and performance mode. Performance mode will lock in that 60fps at 4K but drop things like water effects while graphics mode will give a more detailed and real life picture but at 30fps.

Trophy list

For players who want an extra challenge, F1 22 will have 51 PlayStation trophies including a Platinum trophy. You can find the full F1 22 trophy list here.

PS5 wheels

Perhaps best of all, is that more and more wheel manufacturers are making hardware specifically for the PS5. With Gran Turismo 7 also arriving this year it's a great time to be a racing gamer.

The Fanatec GT DD Pro is a stellar piece of kit that delivers direct drive, table-mounting, and high-quality performance for PlayStation racers. If you're looking for something a little cheaper then the Thrustmaster T248 is a perfect choice.

Controller play will still be extremely viable in F1 22, but there has never been a better time to get a wheel!
