I've been playing racing sims for a year or two using GT's and Touring cars and over the last couple of weeks I thought I'd have a go at these F1 thingies figuring "How difficult can it be?"... Turns out, very! Having tried other forms of racing and having a thorough understanding of the basics, slow in, fast out etc. I can see it's the same basic principal with F1 but actually taking corners without stopping first to take a deep breath and plan your exit is like trying to score a hole-in-one 3 times on the trot. With other, slower forms of racing I start slow and gradually build up speed but driving fast in F1 doesn't seem the same as 'driving slow...only quicker', it's an entirely different technique. What I mean is, when driving above a certain speed I use the extra acceleration to push the car which seems to provide (quite) a bit more traction (sorry if that bit makes no sense, I can't think of another way of explaining it). Anyway, I've watched my replays and it's like watching Goofy in a high speed cop chase...in time acceleration mode. Seems that anyone hoping to engage in this sport needs the dexterity of a surgeon and the reactions of Spiderman. How come these bloody F1 drivers have the outward appearance of normal people? I'm not really looking for help here, I was just venting my inadequacy and wondering if it's just me?
