Feral Interactive have announced that F1 2016 will be released on Mac this week.
What difference does a year make? Last year’s official F1 2016 video game – originally developed by Codemasters – will be released for Apple Mac computers on Thursday April 6, 2017. The port comes courtesy of Mac and Linux specialists, Feral Interactive.

The game also includes cross-platform multiplayer for Mac and Windows, and supports up to 21 players on each of the game’s 21 official Grand Prix circuits.
David Stephen, managing director of Feral Interactive, said in a press release:
