    Same here........Dont get me wrong, if the wife didnt give me the evil stare whenever i mentioned getting a wheel...id have one lol.
    But im a GP4 veteran, and played with keyboard back then, so i guess im used to it. Although, i have to be careful when joining a online race to make sure assists are allowed.......Ive been caught out a few times when traction control and abs is banned, and basically spinning out on every corner.

    Keyboard no assists. I used to.
    And only played Spa/Monza. In a mclaren, a little off the pace. Always spun out before lap 20.

    Hey any tips on manual shifting on keyboard .. what keys do you use for shifting ? its going to be so difficult when combined with using KERS + DRS :)

    Here is My Layout
    Acceleration/Gas - Up Arrow
    Break - Down Arrow
    Left and Right Directions - Left & Right Arrow
    Gear Up - A
    Gear Down - Z
    KERS - Caps Lock
    DRS- W
    Look Behind - H
    Look Back - B
    Look Left - V
    Look Right - N

    I've used this layout for EA F1 Challenge now KERS and DRS are additional Buttons i need to use

    For Getting Manual Gearing right
    All you need to do is Turn on the DRL then use the 1st and 2nd for Red color DRL
    3,4,5 for Yellow and finally 6 , 7 for Green
    Once you get used to Manual you never want to run in Auto
    I didn't have any DRL in EA sports edition i hardly trained to negotiate curves in all tracks then when i got F1 2010 I managed to do it Successfully and Easily
