F1 2012 is a video game by Codemasters, released between September 18 and September 21, 2012. Based on the 2012 Formula One Season, it is sequel to F1 2011 and the fourth video game in the series, which also includes F1 2009 and F1 2010.

It was announced on March 18, 2012, which coincided with the first race of the season in Australia.

It contains the 12 teams and 24 drivers in the 2012 championship (excluding mid-season changes) and all 20 circuits, including the Circuit of the Americas, the host of the 2012 United States Grand Prix. The game was released before the race took place, its release in Europe coinciding with the completion of the circuit.

The graphics and sound are much improved from F1 2011.


The game starts with a two-day Young Driver Test, a tutorial, which helps gamers get to grips with the game. It takes place at the Yas Marina Circuit (home of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix).
