A playable demo of F1 2012 will be available to download from next Monday, September 10 on Xbox 360, Tuesday, September 11 on PC and Wednesday, September 12 on PS3.

The demo will give players the chance to try out the first day of the game's Young Driver Test and a Season Challenge race set at Monza almost two weeks before the game goes on sale on September 21.

Both Young Driver Test and Season Challenge modes are new additions to this year's game. The former teaches new racers the ropes of F1 racing, while the latter offers a series of race challenges.

In addition to a demo of F1 2012, a FIFA 13 demo is also due to go live early next week.
