Codemasters and Electronic Arts confirmed that the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, better known as Portimao, is now available for all F1 22 (@Formula1game) players as a free circuit update. China's Shanghai International Circuit arrives on September 12.
“We know our players love the thrill of competing on more circuits, and they don’t get much better than Portimao,” said Lee Mather, F1 Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. “Portimao is highly revered with a proud history, and our players will love the challenge of taking the 2022-designed cars onto the hallowed circuit for the first time.”
Portimao returned to the Formula 1 calendar for the 2020 and 2021 seasons as part of the revised F1® calendars. Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes dominated both years, taking victory, with then-teammate Valtteri Bottas claiming second and third place, respectively. The 4.684 km undulating circuit is famous for its sharp descent before a final right turn and full-throttle to the finish line.
