Codemasters are back with their latest installment of F1 2012 delivering a host of changes, some small and some significant, that will have the rev-heads out there and racing enthusiasts thrilled to the smell of racing engine fumes. F1 2012 is the third installment now in the series and Codemasters has truly delivered a racing title that qualifies in pole position, let’s take a look.

You’ll be put through 2 days (in game time that is) of driver’s tests including everything from braking to acceleration, taking corners correctly and following the optimal racing line.
