    Yes, got it on steam. It looks stunning. The menu's are annoying IMO and the handling of the cars... out of the box they were pretty bad but a bit of tweaking (and I think setting it on Expert difficulty made a difference, not sure) it started to feel about as good as some of the modern F1 mods for rFactor IMO.

    I know alot of other disagree with me, but I don't think I wasted my $40. I was in the market for a decent single player game and as far as I can tell from the couple hours I have played this will do fine.

    I will still use rFactor for online racing though, no doubt at all.

    Ouch.

    I don't get that at all. The game is already available on torrents, and thousands of people will be able to steal it and play, while people who paid for it have to wait.

    I was anticipating it would be available through Steam today (I preloaded it)? (Netherlands), so I'm hoping it will be waiting for me after work.

    I think GRID and Shift look better, and Shift had much, much better FFB.
    This is a B grade game IMO, so those who're easy to please might like it, but the FVA slaughters this.

    I've had mine since yesterday (I'm in Canada). Graphics are great! I have it on the second-hardest setting, and I was just noodling around Bahrain in the Lotus in practice. Not too sure about the realism... I have ABS and traction control fully off, but I could still *really* gun it hard out of the corners, and she still sticks. My only other frame of reference for how an F1 car should handle is the Mak-Corp 2007 Formula 1 League Edition v1.0 mod for GTR Evolution, and the two are different as night and day... with that F1 mod, I have to be super careful with the throttle coming out of corners, or I immediately 360... this car is waaay more forgiving.

    Lower your 1st gear ratio, and if u want a great F1 car, buy FVA.

    'This game will be available in approximately 1 day and 1 hour'
