F1 2014 is a racingvideo game based on the 2014 Formula One season developed and published by Codemasters. The game features the new turbo-hybrid cars introduced in the 2014 season, as well as the team and driver line-ups. All of the 2014 Formula One tracks are featured, including new additions like the Red Bull Ring, Hockenheimring, the brand-new Sochi Autodrom, and Bahrain in night conditions.
The game allows players to choose any team to drive for at the start of Career Mode, rather than forcing the player to start at a team lower down the grid, as in previous titles. Also unlike previous titles, the Career Mode allows players to choose from three different season lengths: seven races, 12 races or the full 19 races. The game also features a new driver evaluation test, and the Scenario Mode has been improved. The game does not feature Classic Content, a feature from the game's predecessor which allowed users to drive historic Formula One cars around historic tracks.
This was the last Formula 1 game released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and the last F1 game to be released in September/October.
The game features the initial driver line-ups from the 2014 season. Substitute drivers Will Stevens and André Lotterer were not included in the game, as they both only raced once during the 2014 season.

F1 2014 received 'mixed or average' reviews, according to video game review aggregatorMetacritic. Reviewers praised the new feel of the 2014 turbo-hybrid cars, the graphics, the racing action and some new features that made the game more accessible, but criticism of the lack of new major features and the removal of the classic content from the previous game resulted in mixed reviews.
Game Revolution gave the game a positive review with a rating of 4.5 out of 5, stating that its 'authentic, fun racing balances accessibility and simulation well', and that 'a focus shift from history and F1 melodrama to races alone is a welcome change'. They also praised the graphics, calling them 'superb for PS3/Xbox 360, with impressive weather effects'.
The game received a mixed review from Eurogamer, rating it 5 out of 10, citing lack of new features and an uninspiring career mode. They also declared 'it's a quantifiable step back for the series, saved only by the fact that what's there remains a satisfactory companion piece to this year's season if you're fortunate enough to have a decent steering wheel'.
Hardcore Gamer gave the game a 4 out of 5, saying 'F1 2014 plays to its strengths and doesn't get bogged down with clutter. While classic F1 races can't be recreated this year, the career mode is a far more diverse and enjoyable experience. The racing action is more intense than ever before, leading this to be one of most enjoyable F1 games ever created.'
PC Gamer rated the game 67 out of 100, concluding that 'With its fundamentals unchanged and last years foray into classic cars removed, F1 2014 provides very little beyond a perfunctory car and track update.' They criticised the lack of new major features, sarcastically commenting that 'on the back of F1 2014's box under 'new features', there may as well be a picture of a man shrugging apologetically'.
