Today marks an exciting time for F1 fans as Codemasters release the latest iteration in the F1 series of games, F1 2012 which you can get your hands on today in most stores for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC from Steam.
To mark the launch, Codemasters has released a gameplay trailer capturing just some of the visual and physics advancements made for the latest game in the award-winning series. Reflecting the hugely competitive current season, the video showcases stunning wheel-to-wheel racing at authentically and beautifully realised circuits, including dramatic night racing at Singapore and drivers battling the weather at Spa.

RaceNet is the free online community portal for Codemasters Racing games which tracks player’s races, rewards and rivals.

In the Young Driver Test, players will learn how to handle and get the most out of motorsport’s most exciting and responsive racing cars with a series of tests and videos. Gamers will then sample Season Challenge, another new game mode where players will compete across just ten races to become the number one driver on the grid. In the demo, gamers will pick a rival and aim to beat them in a five lap race at Monza, the iconic 3.6 mile track where cars can reach a top speed of 218m.p.h.
