Konnersport Butler F1 Racing Team
The story focuses on Konnersport Butler F1 Racing Team – a new fictional team on the grid – and spans the 2022 and 2023 F1 seasons. Rising young star Aiden Jackson is at odds with his bold and arrogant veteran teammate Devon Butler. When one of their futures is threatened by a personal issue, Devon’s sister and recent F2® Champion, Callie Mayer enters the picture. To bring Callie’s story to life, the narrative team tapped British motorsport racing driver Jamie Chadwick and SkySports F1 reporter Natalie Pinkham. Team Principal Casper Akkerman has to negotiate team and family dynamics, and the manipulations of Devon and Callie’s father (and key sponsor of the team, Davidoff Butler). As your point of view varies among different characters, the story progresses via gameplay and cinematic cutscenes, and is driven by your choices throughout.

Upgrade your F1 World car all season with a new Tech Level progression system.

Earn upgrades and spend time tinkering in the Garage to customize and develop your F1 World car to be faster and more powerful as you progress. Upgrades in F1 World are split into two categories – Car Parts and Team Member upgrades. Car Parts boost your car’s gameplay performance. Team Member upgrades can be boosted via a contract system for extra “equip-able” items to further buff your performance.
A new Crafting system in F1 World allows you to apply Resources to Blueprints to craft various upgrades, plus craft contracts to equip for gameplay mods, new stickers that you can collect and add to your Compendium, and more.
A new license system promotes clean racing throughout F1 World, and rewards players for respectful driving.

As you complete challenges on your F1 World journey, commemorate your progress with a new Compendium, which is your virtual sticker album that celebrates everything to do with Formula 1, past and present. Play the game, earn stickers, place them into the Compendium, and complete images to earn more rewards and prizes.
