The improvements to F1 2018 since the already-impressive F1 2017 are largely incremental and often very subtle – and there are still a few areas where it's openly coasting on previous efforts – but F1 2018 features the finest handling and force feedback for a dedicated F1 game to date, some welcome visual improvements, and a career mode that does a better job than ever at capturing the nuances of the world's most-popular motorsport.
There's no big feature to point towards, but small improvements make F1 2018 stand out as a superlative racer.
Following a series high last year, F1 2018's welcome additions don't add up to a meaningfully fresh experience.
Saying that you can have just as much fun in the shop as behind the wheel seems weird, but in the case of F1 2018's career mode, it's true.
F1 2018 nails a new lap record with its most complete package to date.
Codemasters still delivers enough immersion and participation in this fantasy to keep it from feeling repetitive, even if on paper, it sounds like it should be.
F1 2018 offers the improved elements that make it the best game that last year. The additions perfect a remarkable proposal that enjoys the balance to please the most purists of the sport and who want only to enjoy the F1 races without difficulties.

F1 2018 takes the existing blueprint and adds many small elements to create one reasonably sized step forward. There are enough differences here to warrant a purchase over last year's edition. F1 2018 is easily the best Formula 1 game yet, but next time, small changes may not be enough.
F1 2018 isn't without flaw or area of opportunity, but the engine that powers its positives revs much louder than the noise made by its few skid marks. This is truly one of the best racing games you'll ever play.
A complete and satisfying Formula 1 game, a must have for the discipline's fans.
