    All the talk about FoV is nice but without knowing PoV it's kind of meaningless, no?

    Personally, I can't see having a great sim and not driving in the cockpit with my wheel in front of me, but how do you feel?

    I agree

    a sim without a cockpitview isn't a sim.

    Cockpit view all the way and I like the wheel being shown, I think with a combination of FOV and seat adjustment you can get a good view in any car.

    Cockpit. I have a wheel installed mainly because some wheels have a part of dash on it. Arms however are removed.

    Cockpit with wheel. I can't see my own wheel when I'm driving, so the ingame wheel gives me a better sense of where the car's pointing. Without a wheel in view in the game driving feels numb to me.

    I generally stick to cockpit view (with wheel) unless I'm using a mod with a particularly odd cockpit view, in which case I'll use the bonnet cam. What I find more relevent though is the fov because if that's set too low then I find the sense of speed is too slow - too high and things start to look a bit trippy.

    I like the wider open view and elevated view point. Helps me find those tricky apex areas on flat tracks

    cockpit view without wheel. Wheel doesn't fit motions with real wheel so focus isn't always 100% when countersteering etc.

    I always play in cockpit view. I prefer to play without wheel ingame and i set my seat in car to the most near of the dashboard, in order to place my real wheel like it should be in reality.

    I used to drive cockpitview but since i tried hoodview i won't go back to cockpitview.
    Imo its easier to see and find apex's.
