F1 Race Stars +
F1 Race Stars is a video game developed by Codemasters, released in November 2012. It is a kart racing game loosely based on the 2012 Formula One season, with circuits redesigned to feature loops, jumps and short-cuts. It is a spin-off from the traditional Formula One video games, and is the first kart-racing game developed by Codemasters. The player is able to choose cartoonish versions of Formula One racing drivers, such as Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Räikkönen, Nico Rosberg, Mark Webber, Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso. It was announced on 13 July 2012 at the San Diego Comic-Con International. Codemasters have described the game as being designed to emphasise entertainment rather than simulation. On 6 December 2012 it was confirmed to be ported to Wii U under the title F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition, where it was released on 16 January 2014.
