    *Fixed an issue where the track could become wet without any rain being visible.
    OMG thank the motorspot god, because Malaysia was a *beep BeeP* when that happened.

    *Added an option to turn the Parc Ferme rules on or off in online Custom Race, Co-Op and LAN games*

    ^ NOw that should of been there to begin with, since its not a "sim" this is more of what it was missing,. great stuff, now I can change from oversteered Q set up to a less oversteer set up for a race :D.

    I really wonder...would they keep updating after Brazil?

    I love the parc ferme rule, it's much more realistic and forces people to be far more strategic in their thinking. The good part of the fix is that enables the rule to be turned off for online setup testing purposes but I for one will always stick to using the parc ferme rule in races (both online and off).

    It had more number of patches, but I think patches other years were addressing more issues. I guess steam just makes it easier to release fixes more often.

    But to to really have more support they would have to either a) fix all issues or b) keep fixing stuff past December (when other years they said 'it is what it is').

    Not complaining here, having more patches increases the chances or fixing the new errors that a patch may introduce. But the sheer number does not indicate better support. Good support is when the game works, regardless of the number of patches. The jury is still out on that one.

    "I guess steam just makes it easier to release fixes more often."

    Thats the key right there. GFWL/Microsoft slow down patch releases because they have to check everything. GFWL is always a bad idea.
    The game is much better for getting rid of it.

    It's maybe not even MS - depends on when Codemasters submitted the console patches to Sony & MS. Once they're sent off to them it can take a few weeks, sadly. They're eing released quicker in most cases, tho.

    You can't, they're being downloaded automatically if your game has been registered on Steam. If they don't try verifying the game cache.

    Right-click on F1 2012 -> Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity
