Who KERS Wins: F1 Race Stars

Any Formula One fans who are indignantly huffing and puffing because KERS is now a verb may find themselves accidentally blowing a few porcine houses to the ground when they see the trailer for Codemasters latest use of the F1 license. F1 Race Stars does a little of Fifa Street's cartoonification of actual sportspersons and then appears to turn the precision machines that vie for chequered glory into karts. I'm all for inventive use of a license and if there's enough jostling and scrapping for position on ludicrous tracks, I'll probably have more fun than I ever would with an actual car simulation. Out in November, with a career mode alongside the multiplayer. Trailer in the pits, below.

There are powerups and that sort of thing, so this really does seem to be going the Wacky Wheels (aka Mario Kart) route.

The sensation of driving up a track that stretches onward into the sky? There's only one way to describe it.

Bracing.

I don't know what my favourite part is. Perhaps when the rhyme scheme is suddenly jettisoned, or maybe Jenson being caught in the shower and shrugging off the intrusion. "Rubber" is up there too.

Oh, who am I kidding, I know exactly what my favourite part is. The bit when he beats a child at Jenga and celebrates so hard the kid is either about to cry, or is just really embarrassed for him
