The F1 racing game will only be fuelling up and changing tyres on Nintendo Wii and Sony PSP this year, next-gen gamers will have to wait till 2010.
So far the Formula 1 people are "very impressed" with what Codemasters are doing, and they're working "closely together". F1 2009 is expected this autumn, featuring champ Lewis Hamilton.
"Codemasters has a great heritage when it comes to racing games and their reputation is second to none," said F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone. "We're working very closely together on the upcoming Formula 1 titles and are very impressed with what we have seen."
The Wii and PSP offering will have all the up-to-date information on teams, cars and tracks along with KERS, slick tyres and the new aerodynamic regulations.
"F1 computer games and circuit simulations can be invaluable for racing drivers so it's great news that our fans will also be able to experience the BGP 001 through this game," added Formula 1 world championship leader Jenson Button.
F1 2010 will be arriving next year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
