    i would like to know what the best settings are for the display in f1 2011. At the moment I'm running 1680x1050 when using my monitor and 1360x768 when using my 32 inch LCD. The game menu is at 16:19.
    all the settings for graphics are on ultra or high. one thing i don't understand is that i cant get 1680x1050 on my LCD TV.

    Which TV are you using? 1368x768 might be the highest resolution available, simple as that. Think of it like HD ready and Full HD TVs. Whilst Full HD ones can use the HD ready resolution, they can't use the Full HD one. :)

    I also have a 720p max Samsung TV and honestly the picture looks amazing. I only sit about 6 or 7 feet away from the screen when i play and from what i understand a 1080p TV wouldn't look very different at that distance.

    Back when I bought a TV, my friend told me that it won't make a difference until you reach 40". I bought a 42" TV and can't fault 1080p so far...however, 720p doesn't look half-bad either. It's probably only visible if you really want to see the difference. ;)
