The 2009 Formula 1 world championship-winning Brawn GP BGP 001 will be a new addition to the classic car roster in the F1 2018 video game.

Classic F1 cars returned to the series in 2017, ranging from 1988’s McLaren MP4/4 to 2010’s Red Bull RB6.

All of the cars included last year will return for the 2018 edition of the game, and Codemasters has announced the first two cars that will be added.

The Brawn will be joined by the Williams-BMW FW25 that fought for the 2003 world championship.

The development team behind the game explained the inclusion of the Brawn was influenced by comments they received last year when it wasn’t included in the 2017 title.

“The inclusion of classic cars in last year’s game was a huge hit with our players and fans of the sport so we wanted to build on that with the inclusion of more classics in F1 2018,” said Codemasters’ F1 franchise director Paul Jeal.

“The Brawn is without doubt the most requested classic car by our passionate F1 community, so we are delighted to be bringing it to the game.

“To win both the drivers’ and constructors’ world championships in your only season is a phenomenal achievement and made the Brawn instantly iconic, and not only that but it looks gorgeous too.

“The 2003 Williams was also a fantastic car, which got better as the season went on.

“Juan Pablo Montoya went on to record 8 podiums in a row, so I’m sure players will relish the opportunity to get behind the wheel of this car too.”

In F1 2017, the classic cars were split into two classes based on their age, and if that split is used again, the Williams and the Brawn would be in the class for more modern cars.

Last year this also included Ferraris from 2002, ’04 and ’07, the ’06 Renault, the ’08 McLaren and the ’10 Red Bull.

The two new additions to the classics line-up will be included as part of the ‘Headline Edition’ of the game, and available as DLC at a later date.
