Hello all, I finally got around to buying F1 2011 when it went on sale last week on Steam and I have to say I'm impressed with the tweaks they made to the driving model. I was pretty proficient in F1 2010 playing on the hardest difficulty with no aids, and so my masochistic side was pleased when I fired up F1 2011 and went to the hardest difficulty with no aids and found myself in a completely different experience. The game was much, much harder, and beside the much more challenging pace, the biggest change for me is that the game seems much more delicate under braking and acceleration. No longer can you brake hard, turn in, and accelerate hard like you could in F1 2010. My question then is what to do about locking up under braking. It happens a lot more in 2011 than it did in the past. I suppose it's cool because it's a much more faithful recreation of what the actual cars do, but that doesn't much help though when you're going for a good lap time. So when I'm locking up going into a corner, what's the solution? It became such a problem when I was pushing hard that I'll admit that the only way I was able to meet the expected lap times was through the use of ABS. Ideally I'd like to get my skills back to where I don't need those kinds of assists. Am I braking too hard? Looking at the readouts for actual F1 driver's you'll see that they all brake hard at 100% for a fraction of a second and then feather off to about 90% for the rest of the braking phase to prevent locking up. Or is this a setup issue? I've been using the setups posted in the other threads, but those setups can't give me lap times if I keep locking up and sliding into the gravel on turn one. Should I adjust brake balance back to stop the fronts from locking? I play with a controller and I'm enjoying the challenge of a new experience, but right now I need someone to point me in the right direction.
