    Go to documents/my games/formulaone and edit the hardware_settings_config.xml file. Near the bottom you'll see a line that starts with <mirrors enabled="true" change the true to false and save the file.

    That should do what you want.

    Strange, used to work in Grid by doing that so I presumed it would be the same in F1 2010.
