Where better than Comic-Con for Codemasters to announce the deceptively titled F1 Race Stars. A 180-degree hairpin from the other Codemasters F1 game, this is less about the stars and much more about the wild, arcade-style racing with weapons and bonuses on "fantastical" versions of real Formula One tracks. It looks like McLaren's Tooned as a video game, with more drivers and cars.

As for those stars, your driver lineup will be Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastien Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Romain Grosjean and – eyebrows raised here – Bruno Senna. There'll be lots of arcade options like online racing with up to 12 players, split screens with up to four players, and carerr modes. It's arriving in November for PCs, Playstation and xBox 360. Check out the promo video below.

      1 driver each from Ferrari, McLaren, Red Bull, Mercedes, Lotus and Williams. Makes sense to me...

      Well it looks like they're going with one driver per team from the top teams...I'm really disappointed they chose Grosjean over Kimi, must be trying to seduce the French user base. Also Schumi is way more iconic than Rosberg. Really it needs classic drivers and cars, that would be pretty epic...although I could never pull the trigger of a Koopa shell if Ayrton Senna or Jim Clark were in front of me.

        Also, they might be erring on the side of youth, given that all of these drivers are the youngest on their respective teams.

        It's possible the drivers (Kimi and Schumy) passed on the opportunity to have their likenesses mario kart-ified.

      I used to be a hard-core sim type of guy, but you get older and have kids and then you don't have the chance to invest in those types like you did. I'm thinking this looks pretty cool, actually. I love the idea of it. The imagery looks great, and Codemasters under the hood makes me think that it will play great. Looking forward to it.
