F1 2012 will receive a new demo from today across Europe on Xbox 360, and from September 12th in Europe on PS3 & PC, Codemasters has confirmed. The studio has also revealed a new trailer of demo gameplay to mark the occasion. Watch it below.

Codemasters released a demo descriptor this morning that explains what gamers can expect, “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.”
