F1 2021 Braking Point Story Mode Revealed in More Detail Alongside New Screenshots

Codemasters’ upcoming F1 2021 is set to deliver another finely tuned iteration of its longstanding Formula 1 series of racing games, but there’s a reason for players to be excited even beyond the driving mechanics. Braking Point is the name of the series’ new story-driven career mode that looks set to deliver a dramatic tale of a young up-and-coming Formula 2 driver attempting to make it in the big leagues, and today it’s been detailed alongside some new screenshots.

Here’s an overview of the storyline’s key protagonists via the game’s website:

  • Aiden Jackson

Aiden is a potential star in the making. A young, promising driver embarking on his first F1® season, who idolises his teammate, Casper Akkerman. Jackson is viewed as a success story, having worked his way up from F2™. Easy to like, Aiden can put up a good front for the cameras. However, behind the scenes he’s struggling with the transition to the big league. Expected to be courted by one of the bigger teams, he has hit the ground running and is already making waves.

  • Casper ‘Cas’ Akkerman

Known for his ice-cold and no-nonsense approach, Casper is a steady hand determined to lift his team away from the midfield battle. His calm temperament and dogged determination have served him well throughout his illustrious career. However, with a crop of young talent breaking through, he’s feeling the pressure of trying to remain at the top of his game despite being in the twilight of his career.

  • Devon Butler

The Braking Point antagonist. Devon is much more than a cocky, loud-mouthed upstart trying to make a name for himself. Highly respected on the track, Devon’s questionable off-track behaviour leaves a lot to be desired. Always ready with a wisecrack comment or barbed piece of advice, Butler uses his encounters to get under the skin of any driver he deems as a threat. Love or loathe him, Devon Butler intends to become a living legend in the world of Formula 1®.

  • Brian Doyle

Brian is the direct liaison to the team principal, and it falls on him to keep things running smoothly. Doyle spends a lot of his time as the go-between, passing on messages, race strategies, or ironing out any grievances within the team. He has established himself within the sport and runs a well-oiled machine. A larger than life character who lives and breathes Formula 1®, Doyle is up when it’s going well but crashes to earth when things don’t go according to plan.

  • Zoe Akkerman

Casper’s wife and the bedrock of his world. Zoe has been on the scene for several years and knows the sacrifices needed for her husband to remain competitive. Zoe is always ready with a sympathetic ear and kind word, no matter where her husband is in the world. Mother to a young daughter, Lily, Zoe is the only person who knows the demons Casper faces competing against the next generation of drivers bursting onto the scene.
