Codemasters has recently released this video from its 2012 Formula 1 game featuring three on board laps of the Circuit of the Americas. The race will take place November 18th in the yet to be completed Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. It will be the first American F1 Gran Prix since the catastrophic race at Indianapolis in 2006 with only 6 cars on the track.

From what we can see in the video, the circuit looks promising for the spectacle. It starts with a blind left corner at the top end of the main straight, then comes a combination of left-right corners that remind us a little bit of Suzuka, then a left hairpin followed by the longest straight of the circuit (main DRS zone?). The circuit also features a quadruple right corner at the end that reminds us the quadruple left from the Turkish F1 circuit.
