Codemasters is known for its racing games, and while it was announced at E3 that the studio's well-respected Dirt rally franchise is on the way to Wii U, its flashier equivalent F1 is racing to the new console too.

CEO Rod Cousens told MCV that both its flagship racers will be making the move to Wii U, and gave his support to Nintendo's next console experiment:

Nintendo is smart. It is always innovative. It has demonstrated its breakthrough ability in the past, so let’s see if it can do it again. And the industry should cheer it on.

We will be doing Dirt and F1 for Wii U.

Codemasters released F1 2009 on Wii to mixed reviews, unlike the generally positive reception for its HD versions of the sport. What ideas do you have for the Wii U controller and Formula 1? Let us know.
