    I remember reading a couple years ago that Barrichello was the only F1 driver that used his right foot for braking but I guess today everyone uses left foot braking. I used to do left foot braking but I feel more comfortable doing right foot braking now (especially after I adjusted my G25 pedals so there is 1-2 cms difference in height between brakes and throttle and I can heel-toe if necessary). Someday I hope I can afford/find a load-cell brake.

    I like using the H-shifter for the 60's formulas so I use clutch and right foot braking but if I'm in a modern open wheeler I will of course not use the clutch (except for launch) and then I will switch between left and right foot braking depending on the car and my mood :)

    Yep, that sounds right :)

    I never tried old cars in rF2 but in iRacing is not 100% well simulated so the car is more permissive than a real life one would be, you raised my curiosity for rF2 now :)

    Both, with clutch depend of car's type.
    With H gears I use right foot, with shifter I use left :p

    I have no clutch pedal, but I can brake with my right foot too. :)

    I learned how to left foot brake, but find that I can't go back and forth between the two styles. I usually stick with the car I'm driving in the league though and don't have to. :D

    I have no trouble going back to right foot braking in my real car though. :curious:
