Codemasters F1 2009 for Wii - Click above to watch video

Kitschy titles like Mario Kart aside, Nintendo's Wii console has never attempted to earn the driving clout that Sony's Playstation and Microsoft's xBox consoles so vehemently compete for. That could change, to some degree at least, with the upcoming release of F1 2009 from the racing simulators at Codemasters. The game is set to be released shortly, and to preview, Codemasters has released video footage of gameplay at the Valencia track where the real Formula One circus will be racing this coming weekend.

To sweeten the deal, the Wii version will also come with an exclusive Race Wheel accessory which will presumably work like the wheel bundled with Mario Kart Wii, but with a flat-bottom form factor styled to resemble an actual F1 steering wheel. The 2009 version will be released for Wii and Sony's portable PSP, but xBox 360 and PS3 gamers will have to wait for the more elaborate F1 2010 due next year. Follow the jump to watch the footage.
