This is an issue I had in F1 2010 as well and that bI managed to almost solve by reinstalling the game from Steam. When I first installed F1 2011 I played several hours without any issues, but today is happening continuosly so it looks like I have to get to the end of it. While driving, somehow the "pause" is triggered bringing up the menu. By observation I foundout the following things: It happen most often when I steer (left it seems) more than 30 degrees. But steering is not the only thing that brings it up. Braking sometimes does too. When this issue is most prevalent I will see the main screen flash black every once in a while. As if someone was trying to trigger the pause but didn't hold the key down quite long enough. This by itself is also very annoying. Some days are better than others (this is my experience with 2010. 2011 only started last night doing it and today suddenly became impossible to do a single lap without triggering pause at every turn. Now, I know that in F1 2011 (and 2010) is very easy to bring up the pause menu. ALT-TAB will do it, as well as some of the buttons on my G25 wheel that are mapped to something that should not pause the game. But this is pretty much all I know. Naturally, I would like to get rid of this. I may take a video of this behavior if my explanation is not enough. Thank you.
