Codemasters today announced that a demo for F1 2012 will launch this week ahead of the full game’s launch on 21st September for X360, PS3 and PC. The F1 2012 demo will launch on Xbox 360 in Europe and North America today, for Windows PC worldwide and PlayStation 3 in North America on Tuesday 11th September and for PlayStation 3 in Europe on Wednesday 12th September.
In the demo, players will sample two of the game’s new features, Young Driver Test and Season Challenge. In the Young Driver Test, which takes inspiration from the real-life event held at Abu Dhabi, 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, a 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.
Codemasters has also released a new set of screenshots and a demo trailer that can be viewed below. Enjoy!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
