    Hi
    I've been enjoying that recently released Ferrari F1 2002 mod. It's my favourite right now. I also enjoy the Formula Renault 3.5 one a lot too.

    Are there any other must-have, open-wheel, F1-like mods or Kunos originals?

    Which is your favourite?

    Really? I've hardly tried it. I'll give it another go as you say it's good.

    If you’re in oldschool F1 then I’d suggest the Lotus 72 or Lotus 25. Also the McLaren M23 mod is a joy to drive.

    By default in the game. Overlooked by many :)

    But it might be personal preference of course. I really love the lower powered open wheelers. They provide for super close racing.

    Lotus 49 and on suitable track Lotus 25 .. Lotus 79D for more casual experience is great too and from mods it is Renault 3.5 (much better than original modern openwhellers content)

    Brands Hatch or Zandvoort. Any tight and twisty track more or less :)

    As said .. more curves, less long straight, you can make it work on any track but gearchange and cornering is what makes those cars fun ...

    For me Lotus 72D and Ferrari 312T give the greatest experience in AC.
    Then Lotus 98T when it's time for powaaa :p

    Sometimes I find the likes of the formula abarth (and F3) a bit dull. They're a certain type of race car, you have to be precise and clean, it severely punishes mistakes.

    But why no love for the lotus T125? I know it's not technically a F1 car but it's close enough. I remember spending a week with the F40 in the early days of AC, then moving to the Lotus and the difference was incredible. It was clear the T125 was a car designed to be raced. It was compliant, progressive, and seemed like it was trying to help me go faster rather than kill me, like the F40.

    The older F1 cars with downforce are great though, they're like the best of both worlds.

    "Best" is kind of ambiguous, I think... "fastest" are probably the modern Ferrari, Mercedes, or Williams cars. But my favorites for fun to drive are the McLaren M23, Tautus Formula Master, and Lotus 49. From the next level of speed, it would be the Formula Renault 3.5.

    The ASR F1SR team are developing some exciting F1 cars of the 90s. There's currently the 1991 Ferrari 643 and the 1996 Ferrari F310 available as betas to donators, but the final releases will be free.

    B191, if I was going to be pedantic! It's there on the WIP page on their website so hopefully will appear eventually. These things tend to take a long time to come to fruition, a lot of work involved.

    That reminds me though, another team are working on the B194. The people who did the F1 2015 all cars mod that's in RD's downloads section.
