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.
