Codemasters is already talking F1 2011

Eurogamers got a quick interview with Rod Cousens, CEO of Codemasters, about their plans for F1 2011:

You're not going to see us on the next one just add a couple more tracks and a couple more drivers because it's the F1 2011 version.

We'll put a lot more into the game's design and we'll add more and more to it. They can start to almost really be the driver. They'll have to strategically figure out the pit stops, when to buy the fuel, what tyres to drive on.

Eventually you'll go down the line where you will feed telemetry data in real time to the consumer to let them adjust their car because they get serious about racing against their hero, who could have posted a time two hours beforehand. And you've got the real track sat in front of you.

It's our responsibility to keep the consumer engaged.

Senior producer Paul Jeal expects the "Live the Life" feature to be better fleshed out in future releases, as it had to be scaled back during development of F1 2010. All very exciting, isn't it?
