Codemasters has released a new trailer showcasing the F1 2020 in-game hot lap from the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, ahead of this weekend’s Virtual Grand Prix at the same circuit.
Initially scheduled for this weekend in the F1 calendar, the lap, recorded by the F1 2020 development team, features McLaren’s Carlos Sainz on his home circuit.
