About the engine blow

    Hello guys.

    He is the doubt: In 2010 I bought F1 2010 and played it a lot having much fun with that

    (made about 6 seasons in career mode with two different drivers) and when I bought my

    DFGT Wheel, it got much, much funnier.
    Then I stopped playing for about a year because my lack of time. That is the reason why I

    didn't buy the F1 2011 game.
    So I came back playing my PS3 and I decided to buy F1 2012.

    I only played F1 2010 with no assistance, even in full expert mode and when I started to

    play F1 2012 that way I got quite disappointed because of my engine blows and failures

    when downshifting at the limit.
    I thought that was a game overstated mistake, because real F1 drivers downshift very,

    very fast and the engines are made and designed to resist to that way of driving. I'm not

    talking about a huge over rev for a long period of time. Just fast downshifting, like any

    driver do (just take a look at Youtube's F1 downshifting videos).

    So I got so much frustrated with F1 2012 and stopped playing in few days, because I

    couldn't finish a race and I didn't have time to practice the slow downshifting.

    My question is: does that "glitch" was patched in F1 2012 for PS3? (I'm asking it because I

    don't play since oct/12)

    Thank you for the attention!
