F1 2013 developer Codemasters has released the game’s full roster of 80s & 90s drivers and tracks found in the all-new F1 Classics Mode. We’ve got a trailer inside.

In a press release sent to VG247 today, Codemasters ran down the F1 Classics Mode content by decade. Presented by commentator Murray Walker, the mode throws the best racers of the 1980s and 90s together in a series of events.

    I’m having trouble finding the source, but, wasn’t it previously announced that Classic Edition was a digital-only availability, on PC? (So, they must only be talking physical copies in that number.)
    I only mention it, because I hoped that the article might, and secondly, that it looks otherwise as if the game’s CE version is not up for pre-order, yet – so, it wouldn’t be a bad time to get availability details ironed out.

    @1 Given there’s a 10,000 copy run of the Classic Edition it does seem to be a physical release. I’ll ask Codemasters to clarify for you.

    Thanks. Looking in to it, the content’s already been confirmed as DLC add-ons, after the game’s out, but it would still not hurt to know. On the subject of stock, I was surprised to see the single-copy $1m version of SR4 for sale yesterday, on GAME’s site. It hasn’t yet sold!

    In this interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW4IXDtgHEk&feature=player_embedded from 3:40, the question about Ayrton Senna for F1 2013 is asked.

    He’s not included in the game, because the theme tying the content together for the Classics, is that the drivers today gained access to legacy cars from their teams in the hay days, and set out to race once more. Codies didn’t want to break the concept by introducing a deceased driver. At least, according to creative director, Stephen Hood.
    He says that they intend to include Senna when the time is right.

    No Senna no sale.

    Don’t believe the PR about his ommission. Probably they wouldn’t pay the IP fees (his brand is still big business). His face on a box and in front of a marketing campaign would add a lot of interest and sales.

    It’s not just Senna, the lack of any classic McLaren is also quite baffling.
    No MP4/4 or MP4/12?

    I would’ve liked it if they included Newey’s first car and a couple Benettons as well, but beggars can’t be choosers.

    @6 The explanation by Hood, there sounds convoluted, and just seems very wishy-washy. I don’t put much weight in that answer.

    @7 There should be Benettons too, you’re so correct! Berger was a driver for them, before Ferrari. Jos Verstappen and G. Fisichella also were big drivers on that team in the 90s.
    I remember they pulled some funny business with their cars one year, removing a part of it and there was a big fuss kicked up by Williams especially, that they had created an unfair advantage!

    @8 If they include Bennettons, they’d have to code-in the advantage of the wildly illegal electronics that the FIA found and then agreed to cover up (in exchange for a bunch of resignations in the Bennetton technical and engineering offices) because it would have overshadowed Michael “The Future Of Formula 1″ Schumacher’s WDCs.

    The Leyton House and Jordan 191 should be in any classics pack.

    @10
    Completely forgotten about the 191. That car sure is nice to look at.
    It’s also weird that they picked Scheckter over Gilles.

    While I admit that this is a step in the right direction, I felt that they’re playing it a little bit too safe.
