This is a good time to be a fan of Formula 1 games. Just when it looks like the series might be approaching a glass ceiling, the next title comes along and smashes through it.
This week the latest example is released, and F1 2017 is far more than a repackaged version of its predecessor with a fresh lick of paint. The standout additions to F1 2016 have been built upon, with new cars, features and game modes thrown into the mix.
In the words of principal game designer Lee Mather, the series is "snowballing" now and it has an upward momentum that shows no signs of relenting any time soon.
