F1 Challenge races to iOS

Codemasters launched a new Formula One racing game on iPhone and iPad today called F1 Challenge. For $2.99 (£1.99 in the UK), players can engage in 90 racing events with officially-licensed F1 drivers, cars and teams.

Players are also given the opportunity to "recreate thrilling moments from the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship," such as out-pacing racers like Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton in order to unlock Formula One facts and information. F1 Challenge features a top-down, isometric view with simple touch controls for steering and Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) speed boosts that can be optimized for left or right-handed players.
