F1 22 cover stars revealed

With more and more digital rather than physical sales, the cover star of a sports game has become less important, but that hasn't stopped EA making noise about the F1 22 cover.

So, who is the cover star for this year? Well it turns out there are a few.

Charles Leclerc becomes EA SPORTS ambassador

Along with the new naming style, Codemasters and EA is bringing some fresh faces to the front of the game this year.

Taking centre stage is Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, who is also singing up as an EA SPORTS ambassador.

"F1 22 is celebrating the best young talent in F1, and we are excited to build a deeper relationship with Charles Leclerc. Established as part of the new era of Formula 1, we will work with Charles throughout the season to bring our players closer to the action," said Lee Mather, F1 Senior Creative Director at Codemasters.
