F1 2012 is looking like it might just be the sexiest installment in the series yet, if not the sexiest Formula One game ever, full stop. And we've got an exclusive look at some awesome new gameplay footage from the game, showing off a host of the game's new features for this year.

Chief among these is the new Young Driver's Test mode, in which you cut your teeth behind the wheel of an F1 car and prove yourself to hopefully get snapped up by one of the big teams. We've also got a hot lap around Silverstone to show you, and a delve into Champions Mode, inwhich you'll find a host of challenges to complete.

Check out the video for a deeper look into F1 2012's new modes and features, then be sure to polish your helmet in anticipation of F1 2012's impending release on September 18th in North America and September 21st in Europe. There'll also be a demo up for grabs on September 11th in the US, September 12th in Europe and September 24th in Japan.

Question time to F1 players: I love racing games and usually buy them all - except for F1. I play all Codies racers, all NFS (even the shit ones), Burnout, Ridge Racer and on and on. But damn this game looks truely exceptional....

Does the F1 learning curve & technical difficulty become overwhelming? Also, I know nothing of F1 in real life - will I be at a disadvantage, technically? And finally, is this series better on PS3 or 360? (I love both systems equally with all my heart - so no trollish responses!)

Actually, the learning curve is actually easy to get used to. I, myself love Formula 1 & also love both my systems. The answer to your question is if you have a racing wheel for either system. A racing Wheel makes all the difference, especially if it has force feedback. Otherwise, you can't do wrong on either, but found it running smoother on the PS3, graphics-wise.

You'll take a short time to adjust to the feel of the car, braking distances and what not, but beyond that you can just stick to the 'standard' setups, and not it'll feel just simple like most racing games.

DRS/KERS will come easily to you after awhile too, and realising how KERS resets and DRS is only available in some circumstances.
