The debut race at the Miami International Speedway takes place this weekend and promises to be an exciting event. Ahead of the race, we’ve shared what you can expect with the playable debut F1 22.

This year’s new rules have led to unexpected results in the opening races of a new era of sport. Thanks to the new radical vehicle design, drivers can follow the vehicle in front much closer. These new changes have been reflected in the new physics, tire models and handling added to the F1 22. Recently Announced F1 22 Scuderia Ferrari ambassador and cover star Charles Leclerc leads the championship after a strong start to the season, with defending champion Max Verstappen hot on his heels with a second-place finish after a dominant win at Imola last time.
