All of these cars are exclusive to the Deluxe Schumacher, but both this edition and the F1 ® 2020 Seventy Edition include the 2004 Ferrari F2004, the car that propelled Schumacher’s career into the annals of history with his seventh World Championship. 

The F2004 has been a fan favorite since it was introduced to the series in F1 ® 2017, but has been updated to include Schumacher’s #1 on the nose and his name added to the helmet.

“As part of the 70th anniversary of F1 ®, it’s fitting to celebrate the most successful World Champion of all time,” said Lee Mather, F1 ® Franchise Game Director at Codemasters.

“We are equally excited to finally bring the Jordan 191 and Benetton B194 to the F1 ® series as both have been long-requested by our community, alongside two more of his iconic cars.”

The F1 ® 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition, launching with three days early access on Tuesday 7 July  2020, also comes with exclusive themed car liveries and driver customisation items, including a unique podium celebration.

The game will be released on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. The Seventy and regular F1® 2020 versions of the game will be available on Friday 10 July 2020.
