One thing that cracks me up though:I drive for lotus and the goal for each race is 15th in quali and 12th in the race but the last 5 races i've been on pole and won the race.At the startline my race engineer says like :The boss expects a podium this weekend,think you can manage that ? But then when i win he goes ballistic and screams :THATS FANTASTIC M8,NO ONE EXPECTED THAT !!!!!! Lol sure,if anyone would get 5 poles/wins in a row and taken pole in the sixth i would place a bet on him winning that race aswell but i guess the lotus staff is a bit different

One thing they really nailed though and that's where even iracing lags behind (atleast from what ive heard from their williams f1 model):The engine sounds are amazing,theyve gone to incredible lengths to sample them and for me thats very important.

I'm an F1 and racing sim fan and I've been looking forward to this game for years. But I waited for the reviews, from the real users, not the "professionals". I'm glad I did. The stuff I'm hearing about would really frustrate me. I'm really dissappointed at how badly they messed this up. Perhaps I'll pick it up once its on-sale via Steam for $5 just for LOLs.

I have not played it but from what I hear if you're a fan you will enjoy this one. The technicals are not there, but they can't all be sims. Sometimes you have to eat cake and enjoy that there is no substance

Hi @ all!
I also have a problem with the game. I don't know if someone allready brought up this problem or if anyone has this problem.
The rain effects are my problem. Every time I start the game I can see the wet track, the rain puddles, but only for 3-5 seconds. Then the effect dissapears, as if everything..."dryes" off! Other effects are there, the raindrops running on the car, the beautiful effect of the blurred moving raindrops on the camera.
I have the latest patch (I don't remember having this problem before the patch), I always use the latest drivers (also betas when I hear that they're good), I have a GTX480 and a GTX285 dedicated to physics running on Windows 7x64. In game I cranked up everything to max, I use 8xAA, vSync is on and "directx forcedx9" is on "false" (but also on "true" it's the same!)
Maybe is the patch, but what if it's me the problem, something what i did wrong?
Could you help me? I am I really would like to play this game with all the effects.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english

I really don't get this game,it's very enjoyable but it keeps punishing you with idiotic **** like this when youve tried your hardest and got ahead a few seconds just for the bugs loosing the race for you.I really should stop playing it because it pisses me off to no end,had i not bought it off steam and gotten a dvd instead i think it would be laying on the street underneath my livingroom window by now
Well in real F1, the lollipop man cannot release you into on coming traffic where is might cause an accident and cars pitting in under 5 seconds is a regular thing.

Don't think you understand my point here,me and webber were the ONLY 2 cars that pitted on that lap and he was 2 second behind me = my car was ready before his and the lotus pit is closer to the exit than red bulls.So there was NO traffic nor was there any logical explanation other then a often encountered bug where the pitstaff wont release you eventhough the cost is clear.I sat there waiting and watched webber pass,then it took them 5 seconds to release my car.Would never happen in the real world(unless the lollipop guy was drunk)

Haven't played this in a while and figured that i atleast should finish one season but the amount of stupid present in this game despite the patch is funny:

I was entering the sao paulo track for the first practise of the weekend,entered from the race engineer into section one and as you know you have zero control over your car until you start the new lap or just before the startline.The game dropped me on the track ,next to ruebens barichello who was going into the pits and i apparently blocked him eventhough i couldn't move my car due to the autopilot not being released yet,but still the game gave me a penalty with a 5 space drop on the grid,wtf ?? !! I really want to like this game but damn,it's beyond retarded sometimes.....

Idd,it looks good,sounds good but i highly doubt i will run a second season.Btw did you watch simracing tonight's fanatec GT2 setup guide for GT5 ? Seems to work well according to Darin,even the clubsport pedals had some suggested settings.
