F1 driver uses videogame for practice

Tonio Liuzzi trains on F1 2010.

Formula 1 racing driver Tonio Liuzzi has revealed that he's planning on using F1 2010 to get a bit of extra race practice.

Liuzzi, who drives for Force India F1 Team, wrote on his ESPN blog, "This week I'm going to be back in the factory so that I can do a day in the simulator to get to know the Korean circuit.

"It'll be the first feeling I get for the new circuit, but I'm also planning to buy the new F1 2010 computer game to get a bit more practice in."

Whatever next? David James picking up a copy of FIFA to brush up on his goalkeeping skills? Oh, wait.

Liuzzi's season could do with a bit of jump-start, so maybe Codemasters' sim is the ticket. He currently sits at 15th in the 2010 table and finished 22nd last year. His best finish was sixth at the 2007 Chinese Grand Prix.

F1 2010 clocked an impressive 8/10 when Eurogamer's Joao Diniz Sanches got behind the wheel earlier this year. It's available now on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
