From a cluster of pixels vaguely resembling a human to a detailed video game embodiment: we take a look at the evolution of four-times World Champion Sebastian Vettel in the annual Formula 1 games from Codemasters.

Remember when you played your very first racing game as a kid? Once you got your hands on your controller, it magically turned into a real steering wheel and the screen in front of you was a gateway into the real world of motorsports. These titles created an immersion where it felt like you were really racing alongside Formula 1 legends.

However, when taking a look back in time, the life-like facade in these games turns out to be rather pixelated and far from reality at times. So we at OverTake took a deep dive into the history of Codemasters’ Formula 1 series and investigated how the graphics have changed over the years.
