With the game due to be launched on 16th July 2021, Here are the minimum and recommended PC specifications:

System Requirements


Minimum System Requirements for F1 2021

  • Processor: Intel Core i3-2130/ AMD FX-4300
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 / AMD Radeon R9 280
  • Ray Tracing: Nvidia RTX 2060 / AMD RX 6700 XT
  • Storage: 80GB
  • API: DirectX 12, DirectX Raytracing (DXR) optional
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit (1709 or later, 2004 or later for ray tracing)


Recommended Requirements for F1 2021

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-9600K/ AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti / AMD Radeon RX 590
  • Ray Tracing: Nvidia RTX 3070 / AMD RX 6800
  • Storage: 80GB
  • API: DirectX 12, DirectX Raytracing (DXR) optional
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit (1709 or later, 2004 or later for ray tracing)


Both specifications listed above will ensure a smooth-running game. But may appear to be relatively inadequate with the addition of ray tracing to your gaming experience.

The recommended option will ensure that ray tracing performs at a far more capable capacity. Especially combined with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the Intel Core i5-9600K, you could even opt for an i7 or an i9 if you wanted to.

The remaining requirements look pretty standard on the face of it: 8GB RAM, Intel Core i3-2130 and a GTX 950, it won’t light your socks on fire but will be adequate enough for the appropriate system.

With F1 2021 making its way on to next-generation consoles such as Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S for the first time, we may be in for a pleasant surprise this summer.
