    Remove any mods if you have them installed. (Always make backups BEFORE modifying the game)

    If you have no mods installed :-

    Start Steam

    Right click on F1 2012 > Select Properties > Local Files Tab > Select 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache'

    This will return you to a freshly installed fully patched game (Your profile and game save is safe).

    Now try again.......

    If that doesn't work, I would be be tempted to try re-installing/repairing directX, and or updating/re-installing video drivers.

    The web install of directX just updates and fixes your directX, you will not need to download the whole package :-

    If you have technical problems, you should always give people more information than just saying HELP! Some system details would help anyone here to help you ....

    AMD Catalyst drivers here :-
