Michael Schumacher, Ayrton Senna and five other famous F1 figures can be hired as team mates in F1 2021’s updated My Team mode, Codemasters and EA Sports announced today.

In a first for the official F1 game series series, players who purchase the Digital Deluxe edition of F1 2021 will have the ability to hire seven famous names from the last 30 years.

The seven “icons” that Digital Deluxe edition owners will be able to select are Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Felipe Massa and Nico Rosberg.

The classic drivers will be locked behind a three-tier system, with players given the opportunity to hire a single icon of their choosing at the start of the game. Details of which icons will be locked behind each tier or which drivers will be available from the start of the game are yet to be revealed.

With the return of My Team, each driver available will again have an ability rating attached. While the ratings for the 2021 field will be revealed at a later date, the ratings for the ‘icons’ have been announced.
