F1 2009 coming to iPhone

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Codemasters are releasing a version of their official 2009 F1 game for the Apple iPhone next week.

It will feature all the teams and tracks from the 2009 F1 season, and 20 drivers.

Players will be able to race in ‘time trial’ and ‘endurance’ modes. In ‘time trial’ the challenge is to set the best individual lap, while in ‘endurance’ mode drivers have to complete a series of laps in the best average time. Players can then upload their times to a global scoreboard.

However there is no ‘race’ mode available to take on other cars, presumably because it would require too much processing power. Still you have to say the graphics look pretty good for a phone.

Got an iPhone? Would you like to review “F1 2009” for F1 Fanatic? Leave a comment below and we’ll send you a copy to review. But it’s first come, first served… Update: Katy got there first – look out for her review soon!

“F1 2009” will go on sale in the iPhone App Store next week. It is already available for the Nintendo Wii and Sony PSP – see below for reviews:

        Bad boy Tommy! I would never tax my girl! She’d kill me :(

  2. looking forward to this!!

  3. Awww I knew I should have got the iphone the other month. Will it eventually be on other phones? Like the G2 for instance… :P :)

    1. Dunno about HTC. But you wanna secretly race while in midst of a boring lecture,I’d suggest you to buy the PSP version :) Its pretty decent & loads of fun. I am thinking of doing a review of the psp version on the forums today.

      1. Thanks for that mp4. Very thoughtful :)
        And yes I want it for my lectures :P
        Look forward to your review

  4. Can’t believe you can’t race other cars, but other than that it looks good. Bit worried about accelerometer steering though, never seemed particularly precise.

  5. this looks awesome! would love to review…

  6. I’ve got an iPhone :) I’ll review it :)

    1. Beware of Tommy!

      1. Haha yeah he’ll probably steal my iphone to play it :-P

    I’d be happy to review it. I’m a virtual racing addict and have an iPhone. It will be interesting to compare to the other attempts at driving games (Real Racing by Firemint probably being the current benchmark).

  8. i’ve an iphone!!! i’ll review it

  9. Would love to give it a review :)

  10. This could give an insight to the direction Codemasters will take with their first PS3 F1 game next year. I write app reviews for iPhone blogs and would be interested to see if this can improve on Real Racing, which is an amazing achievement! I’d be happy to review here too.

  11. I have an iPhone and would love to review this app. How do I get my hands on it?

  12. Keith, I would like to do a review for the psp version. You know where to find me ;)

      1. but I’ll do a detailed report on the forums though :)

  13. Keith.. I have a iPhone 3GS and I would review this game for F1 Fanatic

  14. As an avid gaming fan and f1 fanatic, with many hours spent on previous f1 games, I would love to have the chance to review this game; o and I do have an iPhone…

  15. That looks cool will it run on a ITouch Great Stuff to try out. Cheers

  16. I bought an iPhone a month ago and I can’t Shake it off m’y hand. As for Codemasters, I probably bought all their racing games for PS 2 and then for PC. I can’t wait to see how they’re doing on iPhone

  17. Count me in, Keith! :-)

  18. Yes! Count me in please! there’s a dearth of good racing games/sims on the phone, and I like the time attack idea…

  19. If its anything like the Wii game ill steer well clear, that game annoys me to no end.

    I have the Brawn Gp and BMW Sauber games on my iphone though, there pretty fun.
