Codemasters and EA SPORTS have introduced the protagonists of Braking Point, the exciting new story of F1® 2021. With a new cast and a returning cast, Braking Point will allow players to choose from one of five teams that will be able to reach stardom in the exclusive world of Formula 1.
Aiden is a star in the making. A promising young driver embarking on his first F1® season who idolizes his teammate, Casper Akkerman. Jackson is perceived as a success story, having worked his way up from F2 ™. Aiden is easy to love, getting to show a good facade to the cameras. However, behind the scenes he struggles to make the transition to the big league. It was expected that he would be signed by one of the largest teams, but his situation has taken a sharp turn that is already causing talk.
Casper ‘Cas’ Akkerman
Known for his coldness and lack of common sense, Casper is a steady hand determined to lift his team from the battle in midfield. His calm temperament and dogged determination have served him well throughout his illustrious career. However, with a crop of young talent making their way, he is feeling the pressure of trying to stay on top of the competition despite being in the twilight of his career.
The antagonist of Braking Point. Devon is so much more than a bigmouth cocky trying to make a name for himself. Highly respected on court but with questionable Devon demeanor off the track that leaves a lot to be desired. Always ready for a witty comment or scathing advice, Butler uses his encounters to get into the shoes of any driver who considers a threat. Love it or hate it, Devon Butler aims to become a living legend in the world of Formula 1®.
Brian is the direct link to the team manager, and he is responsible for keeping things running smoothly. Doyle spends much of his time as an intermediary, transmitting messages, race strategies or resolving any complaints within the team. He has established himself within the sport and runs a well-oiled machine. A larger-than-life character who lives and breathes Formula 1®, Doyle is on top when all is well but crashes to the asphalt when things don’t go according to plan.
Casper’s wife and the foundation of his world. Zoe has been on the scene for several years and knows the sacrifices necessary to keep her husband competitive. Zoe is always ready to listen sympathetically and say a kind word, no matter where her husband is in the world. Mother of a young daughter, Lily, Zoe is the only person who knows the demons Casper faces as he competes with the new generation of pilots who burst onto the scene.
