Codemasters have released screenshots from racing sim F1 2012 originally shown at this year’s E3.

I’ve put it aside now though as I wait patiently for this years game which will see the introduction of KERS, DRS and the new pirelli tyres.

In the latest video released by Codemasters we are introduced to Staff Sergeant Damien Knox who tells us that by using his experience he will protect his marines and accomplish the mission set. Some great game play footage is shown in the trailer showing off various vehicles, environments which are set in night, day and in between and various weapons.
