With Sky continuing its mission to remove all sports from terrestrial television, taking Formula One as its latest acquisition, F1 2012 might be your only chance to enjoy some F1 racing action this season. Codemasters have today revealed that F1 2012 will be coming in September as usual, boasting a new Young Driver Test mode as its headline addition.
The aim is to introduce players to the world of Formula One through a series of tutorials, taking you closer to the F1 experience by explaining how to handle a responsive and super-fast F1 car, earning yourself a drive with an official F1 team if you prove good enough to make the grade.
To coincide with the unveiling of the Young Driver Test mode, F1 2012 Creative Director, Stephen Hood took to the garages at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi to chat with up and coming young drivers, asking them how playing the game has had an impact on their real-life driving and their understanding of the tracks. You can check out the trailer below.
This weekend sees the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship getting underway in Melbourne. F1 2012 will be releasing in September 2012, with all of the official drivers, liveries and circuits, including the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, and the return of Germany's famous Hockenheim circuit.
