Can I play as a pre existing driver in f1 2021 driver career mode Or how


Recommended Posts

Ive been wondering I wanted to play a career mode and play as seb vettel.

For example you could be able to play as him and make him win another championship. It would be like a normal won but your him. If you can comment and tell me how to do it. Im on *PS5*

If you go go Grand Prix mode you can select the 2021 F1 season by clicking on right bumper and play as any of the official drivers (they’ve put championship mode and GP mode in the same section which is so dumb because it means you only one one option to play as a real driver ). I’d love to see a driver career where you are able to use any of the pre existing F1 or F2 drivers with R&D, contracts, transfers, promotions and management etc it’s honestly something I’ve wanted the most in these games.

I think there was a viable reason why you couldn't be an actual formula one driver in the career mode and it was probably licensing as most things are! 

There's subtle differences in how Career/MyTeam licensing works in comparison to GrandPrix/Championships so i'd expect that is your blockage so I think Grand Prix mode and playing a whole season is your best bet, i'm afraid.

This is not a perfect solution, but you can start a career mode and when you create a driver, just name him Sebastian Vettel, try your best to make him look like the real Seb, and put him in the Aston Martin replacing the real Seb. I am currently racing as "Lewis Hamilton" and the announcer can say "Lewis" so that helps.

I'd have liked a different way of control in MyTeam as I think the logic of the owner/driver thing just really doesn't work. I know their reasoning they give is that it is a driving game and not a management game but that's not what I mean.

I'd like to be the created owner, as it is now, as that's the purpose of the mode.  However, i'd not want my fictional created character to be a driver. I'd want to be able to choose two different real drivers, say Piastri and Pourchaire and you hire them both to your team and you can choose which one to be on any given weekend, but you have to drive as one of them, obviously. (or just sim if you don't feel like it).

I get that some people have more attachment to their created driver so would want to be them still, so by all means, keep the option to be an owner/driver in the original set-up. 

That way, you could hire Vettel and actually drive as him to the title. I guess that's where the problem lies in that you can pretend to be a real driver in a 'real season'. But.... it's a game, so you know, it doesn't matter.

They could've done something like Stroll or Mazepin: your father bought a brand new F1 Team for your birthday and you are the N1 driver.

Can you do the full 10 seasons . In championship mode . Or is it single season . I want to be able to transfer to diffrent teams . So can try and create my own performance for each team .
