Formula 1 racing is some of the most intense, high speed action out there, with the slightest mistake destroying your chance of victory (and probably your car too!).

If you're a fan, you must be looking forward to October's release of F1 2013, and getting your hands on that wheel again; if you can run it of course. Find out in our F1 2013 System Requirements...

F1 2013 System Requirements

Once again, a slightly odd set of requirements; not least because the 8600 GT definitely doesn't support DX 11! Still, that minor point aside, the minimum requirements are reasonable, even if the game will take up a sizeable portion of your hard drive.If you want the real action though, be prepared to make your PC sweat, as the recommended requirements look like they can stretch many PC's!

Formula One 2013 isn't just about the latest in racing; you'll also get a load of classic circuits and cars to race with, all of which will be commentated by the legendary Murray Walker. Naturally, there's a wealth of enhancements to the usual recipe, including even more game modes!
