The Makings Of An F1 Champion

It can be tough to handle an official license and still offer fans something more than just an official schedule of races. That's where F1 2012's Champions Mode comes in.

The mode features six Formula One Champions in scenarios that you must complete in order to move on to the next challenge.

In order, the drivers/challenges are: Kimi Räikkönen, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, and finally Michael Schumacher.

As an example of the kinds of situations you'll be put in, the first scenario casts you as Kimi Räikkönen's teammate at Spa Francorchamps. You must overtake him in the last three laps of the race on fresh tires in order to progress.

F1 2012 comes out for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on September 18.

  • great idea on this, an even better idea would be to have classic scenarios (like ea does for golf)....mansell overtaking piquet at silverstone '87...senna holding off mansell in '92, etc.....could be a good idea for dlc..those late 80's and early 90's were a great time for f1...similar to how this season is shaping up...very competitive...codemasters does good job with this franchise
  • I bought the last two games, but unless this one has significant improvements (graphics and handling naturally being the most urgent, and bugs), then I might pass on this one or at least wait until its only $20. I like the Champions idea though.

  • I've been wanting to buy one of the last two games, but I don't if should just wait for months for F1 '12 or just get F1 2011.
  • f1 is by far the best racing sim out there ( opinion ) cause the racing is pure not saying that its better than forza or gran turismo but its up there with the best racing games to date, i already have it pre ordered just hope they fix the online cause those british, spainards, and all the other foriegn trash do like to wreak you so if your thinking about getting this keep in mind that you will be turned around.
  • Looks really cool. I don't know anything about F1 but I would like to check it out.

  • Go Kimi!

    F1 2009 had a similar challenge mode. Prolly the best part of that game as the handling and AI sucked. But as it was mentioned before, Codemasters better get the bugs/glitches and stuff sorted out before the game is released. If I'm gonna buy day one I expect them to do so 'cause they've been really "lazy" with their F1 games.

  • Cool, i play all the sim racers and this is an awesome introspective

  • remember burnout race fall fail hate burnout

  • interesting speed good race

  • The environment beyond the track looks really good on this game.  Alot of attention to those details
