Codemasters has released the fourth developer diary for F1 2011 today, showing this season's updates in more detail, revealing the impact they'll have upon the gameplay. This includes the introduction of the safety car at the behest of the fans, and the 2011 season rule changes.

So, this year you'll be able to use the safety car periods to nip in for a cheeky pit stop, for a leg up on the opposition, and the new DRS and KERS systems built into each car will give you additional strategical options to deploy during a race. DRS adds acceleration for overtaking, while KERS presents drives with a speed boost to launch out of corners. It does make things more interesting.

Check out the latest video for more, then keep your visor up to look out for our F1 2011 review soon. F1 2011 is out on September 20th in North America and September 23rd in Europe.

Looks shit hot! I'm gonna go pre-order this methinks.

Safety car might be interesting, though no one seemed to really ever crash in F1 2010 SP, and in 5 full seasons I've only had 2 wet races, and none of them were SC wet. Still, looks good. Hopefully this will release without a lot fo the niggling issues we had at F1 2010s release.

we could have a promblem here online, there is no damage when you play online so if someone was out infront could the others cause a collition and bring out the saftey car to get close to 1st place or would this only be on grand prix?

I hope the handling and AI are improved as much as they are rumoured to be, the cars really felt heavy and unrealistic in F1 2010, but if they can get that right, the experience will be so much better.

I love the first one. Codies did a really good job on it and this looks like it will be another great installment to the racing series. I'm getting this on day one, not much of a gears fan so I'm glad this is coming out that same day. cant wait
