Video: Watch the evolution of F1 games from 1976 to 2020

The world of eSports reached new fans in 2020 thanks to the F1 Virtual Grand Prix series. But gaming Formula 1-style has been popular since way back in the 1970s, as this video shows.

Many F1 fans will have at some point taken part in gaming based on the sport, be it as a child with a SNES aspiring to a hero driver, or perhaps as an adult streaming on Twitch. Yet it’s easy to forget just how long Formula 1 video games have been around - and how dramatically they have evolved.

This fascinating video charts the evolution of the genre since 1976. From the basic arcade games of the 1980s to the more complex versions of recent years, it makes for a great journey down gaming memory lane.
