Time Attack Edit
Mixed reviews were received for the absence of new features and changes of Career Mode compared to the previous games.
The game even got criticised for the differing handling model between the different user inputs (gaming wheel and Xbox 360 controller).  This is because of how the game creates a small racing rift between the two.
The game received a 4 out of 5 by Hardcore Gamer, who said "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."
As the game was designed before the announcement of the Autódromo José Carlos Pace's resurface, it still contains the original surface and pit lane. Also before the Autodromo Nazionale Monza's Parabolica run-off corner was asphalted, it still contains the original run-off surface.
The Williams FW36 has the stripes and logo of Martini & Rossi replaced with darker blue and black stripes, due to the restrictions of advertising alcohol in a PEGI 3 rating.  The drivers' crash helmets also have the red stripe and logo removed from their livery.
 The Force India VJM07 had its alcohol and brewery sponsors replaced by alternate logos.
The McLaren MP4-29 appears in its launch livery in the game.
Players can choose an unlimited amount of flashbacks, as the feature was not featured in the previous games.
The preview image of a track is displayed instead of a hotlap video.
The showroom in the menu is set on the Bahrain International Circuit's Turn 1.
Players can drive any team in Career Mode.
The Young Driver Test has been removed from the game, being replaced by Evaluation Test.
F1 2014 does not have classic tracks and cars, which were likely announced to be back in , which eventually did not materialise.
F1 2015 Some Scenario events reference to real Formula One moments:
"Just Williams" refers to the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix, in which Williams won after a long time.
"How Did He Do That?" possibly refers to the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix, but in the opposite way; the player instead has to overtake Jenson Button.
"The Flying Finn" refers to the 2005 Japanese Grand Prix, in which Kimi Räikkönen won the race after starting in 17th.
