F1 2009 Night Race Screens Emerge From The Darkness

Singapore Night Race recreated for the first time ever in an F1 racing title
You may (or may not) be interested to learn that F1 2009 is the first digital representation of the sport to feature a night race, as screenshots published today prove.
The official F1 licence has been dormant for a while now, but this new version is promising big things. Interestingly, it's leading on the Wii and PSP, with the 360 and PS3 editions not being made available until 2010.
Here's a snippet from the press release:
The FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX became instantly iconic when it was introduced to the FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ last season as it was the first time that a FORMULA ONE race had been held under lights. This has been painstakingly recreated in F1 2009. In total there are almost 1,500 lighting projectors used at the circuit, making it four times brighter than the average sports stadium and enabling the drivers to have maximum visibility at all times.
We've added the new screens to our F1 2009 gallery, which can be seen below.
