F1 2011 is an upcoming game from Codemasters based on the 2011 Formula One season. All twelve teams and twenty-four drivers that will start the 2011 season will feature in the game, though mid-season driver changes will not take place due to licencing restrictions. The entire calendar of nineteen circuits from the 2011 season will present, including the new Buddh International Circuit in India. Certain circuits will also feature day-to-night transitions.
Online multiplayer will have a maximum of sixteen players in a race with the option to include an additional eight AI-controlled cars. A split-screen multiplayer mode has been confirmed, as has an online co-operative championship. In August 2011, Codemasters announced that the safety car will be implemented in the game following its absence in F1 2010, and that it will be available in races that are 20% of real race distance or longer. Red flags will also be included for extreme situations!
