I don't know anything about Formula 1 other than that I used to sit for three hours and waited for cars to crash in races ten years ago. The F1 series is very popular in Europe though, so check out what Codemasters had to say about their new title.
The DiRT developers are masters at the racing genre, which usually makes me wonder why they even bother diverting attention to their adventures into shooters and whatnot. It sounds like they are in their element with F1 2011 though, so if you're a fan of the sport this seems to be the racing game to get.
