F1 2009 is crammed with everything a Formula 1 fan could want. Aside from all the superstar racers, the game pits your driving skills against all 17 tracks that make up the Championship including Hermann Tilke's Abu Dhabi circuit and the spectacular Brawn GP001, which separates the boy racers from the Formula 1 legends.
It's here that your abilities behind the wheel of some of the fastest cars on the planet will be stretched to the limit. One of the biggest and most intriguing additions to F1 2009 is the Kinetic Energy Recovery System, a power-up of sorts that stores the force dispelled when braking, and can later be used as a boost for a short period of time, allowing you to overtake opponents on tight corners or on the final straight in a dash for the finishing line.
There are a number of game modes available to you including Quick Race, Time Trial, Grand Prix Weekend, Championship, Career and Challenge. The races you'll spend most of your time in will be both Career and Challenge because they provide the bulk of F1 2009's content. In Career, the game's main mode, you'll have to race for a team over the course of three years while working your way up the Formula 1 hierarchy and (should you succeed) claiming the top spot.
