Formula 1 fans will have the chance to try out new race weekend formats - including double headers and different ways to decide grids - in the new F1 2017 game.
While publisher Codemasters has put a lot of effort into an overhaul of the handling and performance of the F1 cars, extra work has been devoted to offering new gameplay elements too.
Part of that will include the chance to race historic cars - which will be incorporated as invitational events in an expanded career mode - but further changes have been made to open up new race formats.
In an exclusive video interview with Motorsport.tv, Codemasters' creative director Lee Mather said: "At the moment we've concentrated on doing some alternate circuit layouts, and that gives us a different style of gameplay.
"We can do much shorter races, sprint races, but we've also changed some of the formats as well in the championships mode.
"So the players can do double header races, or a race where the qualifying for the first event is determined by the qualifying session and the second event by the result of the first race."
F1 2017 is released on Friday.
