Ever wanted to Bottle Rocket past Button, call out the Safety car on Vettel or send Kimi some balloons to cheer him up? Well that day is almost here and we are pleased to announce that a demo for F1 Race Stars will be available this week.
You’ll be able to select from one of four playable characters; Jenson Button from McLaren, Fernando Alonso from Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel from Red Bull and Lotus‘ Kimi Räikkönen.
Racing on our German track you’ll start off at Hockenheim, making your way through the winding roads of the Black Forest, into our Bavarian Castle, joining the AutoBahn and then joining back onto Hockenheim for the final few corners.
You'll be able to try out a whole host of power-ups as you attempt to finish on the podium but if you do get stuck at the back of the pack don't worry, we’ve got some handy tips just for you.
Demo Tips Build up your KERS - Pump up your KERS battery on the corners and let fly as soon as your back on the straight, all you need to do is let go of the accelerator then quickly put it back on, you’ll notice your battery will fill up by one section. Pull this off three times in a row on a corner for maximum KERS boost!
Boost Jump - Release the accelerator as soon as you leave the ground then put it back on as soon as you land, get your timing right and you’ll trigger a boost just as you land.
Keep an eye out for shortcuts - You’ll notice a few of them around the track but can you find them all?
Visit the pits - Been getting knocked about a bit by the other drivers? Noticed sparks and smoke coming from the back of your car? Make sure you visit one of the many pit stops to patch yourself up. You’ll find one on the autobahn, one in the castle and one alongside the starting grid.
The demo will be available on Xbox Live and Steam from Tuesday 6th November, while the PSN versions will be available starting from Wednesday the 7th. We’ll update this post with links to where you can download the demo as soon as they become available but to hear it first, follow F1 Race Stars on Twitter and Facebook.
