Every story has a beginning – and in less than a month’s time, you’ll be able to experience a gripping racing story in F1 2021, courtesy of our new mode: Braking Point.

One of many new additions to this year’s official Formula 1 title from Codemasters and EA Sports, Braking Point combines thrilling racing and immersive storytelling for a fresh narrative-driven experience, inspired by the modern-day F1 paddock. Of course, to create a story as ambitious as this, you need a stellar and varied cast of characters, and Braking Point delivers exactly that: a gifted rising star, a fearless veteran, a returning loud-mouthed rival, and plenty more.

Today, we’re giving you the scoop on five of the key Braking Point characters in F1 2021. Without further ado, let’s meet the stars of our show…


Aiden Jackson

The journey to the top is rarely simple. Aiden Jackson’s rapid rise towards the F1 grid has been a Cinderella story, and he’s already making waves in the pinnacle of motorsport, but the youngster’s charm and confidence is rocked by fierce new rivalries and the media spotlight. Aiden’s opportunity to become a F1 superstar is at its breaking point in his debut season – he’ll need all his talent, resolve, and nerve to navigate obstacles on and off the track to realise that dream.

Casper Akkerman

A seasoned veteran of the paddock, ‘Cas’ is an ice-cold, no-nonsense personality, looking for more glory in the twilight of his career. Consistent on the track and in front of the cameras, Akkerman is an important part of a team determined to lift themselves above the midfield battle. Whilst he is fully focused on not going quietly into the night, a new rival and rising tensions within his team are forcing Casper to reassess his approach to racing.

Devon Butler

No good story is complete without a classic villain. Devon is a cocky and brash upstart desperate to make a name for himself and will happily do so at the expense of others. Sounds annoying, right? What’s more irritating, though, is that Devon has the speed and the skill on track to back up his arrogant persona. Whether you’re behind the wheel or in the paddock, overcoming Braking Point’s antagonist will be much easier said than done.

Brian Doyle

An infectious passion for the sport and unmatched work ethic have made Brian a mainstay of the F1 scene, well known as a strong manager of people and situations behind the scenes. A direct liaison between the Team Principal and other personnel, including the drivers, Brian must handle politics and personalities at all times – and perhaps his only weakness is balancing his emotions when things don’t quite to plan. Expect to see plenty of Brian as the intense story on and off the track unfolds.

Zoe Akkerman

The wife of Casper and a well-known figure in the paddock, Zoe has been right there with her husband through his F1 trials and tribulations. Now a mother to their young daughter, Lily, Zoe is always on hand to offer some grounding advice and sympathetic support to ‘Cas’ – but she’s also acutely aware of the demons her partner is facing as a new generation of competitors are pushing to take Casper’s place. Zoe’s influence is needed now more than ever.
