    The Lotus F1 Team has today announced they have joined forces with Linkin Park to release an iPad game that will be made available this Thursday, May 24th free to the iOS App Store. The iPad app will allow players to control the Lotus F1 team around a virtual race track and according to AutoSport, will also offer the opportunity to remix Linkin Park's current single, BURN IT DOWN. A trailer promoting the joint endeavour has been released and shows Linkin Park playing the game along with a montage of footage promoting the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix, which begins May 24th, the same day as the release of "Linkin Park GP". Check out the trailer and an article detailing the release below:

    Mike Shinoda has updated his blog to shed more light on the remix elements of BURN IT DOWN.

    Sweet, can't wait to DL this!

    Especially interested in the remix portion of the app, wonder what the interface will be like.

    LP really needs to start porting their apps on Android. I mean seriously, more people have Android rather than iOS.

    Also, kinda cool seeing this, I mean Kimi did mention that LP were his favourite foreign band.

    Great partnering.. I don't regularly watch (actually I don't, I just happen to check general sports news regularly) F1 but Kimi Räikkönen is a great pilot and I think Lotus will do a good campaign this year.

    Also it's a nice way to boost Linkin Park's social campaign, loving the way they approach different audiences, this time, F1 racing fans.

    Okay I'm calling all of this first:

    1. 24th May 2012 will be the date that the Burn It Down video will be released
    2. This will also be the date that the first remix for those that pre ordered "Livings Things" will release

    I support LP highly, but I'm getting a little tired of these iPhone/iPad exclusive deals that they keep cutting. It's kinda bullshit that because I don't feel like wasting 600 dollars on an overpriced computer tablet (that's not even top of the line and is outperformed by some competitors), I'm going to lose out on a chance to play this game/earn early access to the remix stems. It happened with the viddy contest and now it's happening here again. It's frustrating.

    That's exactly how I feel. I never got to play 8-Bit Rebellion so there's nothing left for me to do but to be happy with the announcement -period-, I can't enjoy interactive material due for not having apple products.
