    Has anyone any info on this as it states in a daily paper that he has signed a 5 million pound deal with EA for what i can only presume will be the next F1 game for the 360 and ps3.

    No doubt going to be the cover star for the game like Rooney/Ronaldinho are for FIFA and so on...

    I'd prefer that they spend an extra 5 million on the actual game :(

    That's a bit OTT he's not even won anything yet. Are EA trying to create a franchise like the Tiger Woods games. What's it going to be called, Luis Hamilton's F1 Racing or something like that?

    Oh well I don't really like F1 anyway, little too dull for me.

    like tiger woods and FIFA. Its telling me that the first game will be very good with shoddy sequels coming out every year

    tbh the 360 could do with a F1 game, not played an F1 since the N64

    I thought that was illegal in the UK due to if the person becomes tarnished people wont want to live on the road and the name will have to be changed.

    Raikonnen is about as interesting as watching creosote dry tho. The way he reacted when he won the championship youd think he'd won an umbrella in a raffle or something.

    Excellent it could be ultra realistic. If you hit the wrong button your car turns off and you lose the title.

    They probably also went after Hamilton after he admitted on several occasions this season he learnt* several of the tracks by playing F1 games on his console.

    * when i say learnt, i mean learn which corners follow which.
