Fresh from my inbox I have just recieved word that even though the real-life Circuit Of The Americas in Austin is not completed yet; a finished virtual version of the track will be in Codemasters F1 2012 and be completely playable. Representatives from Codemasters released the first screen shots for the game and those shots show the current crop of F1 cars on the Austin race track. The circuit will actually be playable at E3 (which I will be attending) so if the PR-Ninjas let me I will try to get some gameplay footage for you. In the meantime enjoy the screen shots below and stay tuned for more info!
