Codemasters Have Released A New Trailer For F1 2010 Showing The Singapore And Abu Dhabi GP

Codemasters have released a new trailer for F1 2010. this trailer shows the Singapore GP and Abu Dhabi GP. the trailer aims to show the games light effects, especially between the contrasts of Singapore's night racing and Abu Dhabi;s day racing.

However, i'm a huge F1 fan and i'm disappointed to say that this trailer makes it clear that the cars in the game are not up to date. from the video, all the cars in the field are pre-Barcelona spec. this means for half the grid the wing mirrors are in the wrong place, Mercedes don't have their unique Air Box, Virgin cars are shorter and do not have the "shark fin" and a whole host of teams don't have the "f-duct".
