The main difference relates to how precise wheels are. When it comes to both steering and using the pedals, a wheel and pedal setup is far more controlled than when using a controller pad.

The innovative My Team Career Mode returns and has more options than ever before. The is in addition to the new F1 Life feature, as well as Supercars making their debut in the series.

We genuinely thought that F1 22 could've been the best F1 game ever before it launched. While it hasn't reached those heights, it is a good game and one that's worth upgrading from F1 2021.
