In anticipation of the upcoming release of F1 2013 the videogame — and conveniently coinciding with the real-life Hungarian Grand Prix — Codemasters has released footage of a hot lap around the circuit in one of the Torro Rossos.

According to Codemasters, Scuderia Toro Rosso’s Daniel Riccardo was at the helm, driving his own in-game avatar (that’s got to be a little weird) . Commentary is provided by former F1 driver Anthony Davidson, who now drives for the Toyota LMP1 squad. The voice over actually gives quite a nice perspective on the sheer level of concentration needed to put together a good lap, even in a video game.

While the game doesn’t quite give the same sensation as driving a real F1 car, it is one of the absolute best substitutes. F1 2013 will be available on all video game consoles on October 8th in the U.S.
