Codemasters has confirmed a F1 2012 release date of September 21 in the UK.
The publisher has also sent over a developer diary featuring the first glimpses of F1 2012 gameplay footage.
It also details several of the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC game's new features, including the Young Driver Test, which will act as a tutorial mode.
F1 2012 creative director Stephen Hood said: "The aim for the 2012 game is to make more of a complete Formula One experience.
"[The Young Driver Test] gives those up and coming drivers track time to showcase their talents and it's wonderful that we are able to copy the elements that happen on those real Young Driver Test sessions in the game."
