    @AndyGray_ I've heard that the formation lap is not included in #F12011. Can you please confirm or deny this. Also, can you create a team ??

    The only thing the formation lap would be is a nice addition. I've played F1 06. and the formation lap was just boring. You people ask for everything but at the end of the day the race is what matters the most. So enjoy in what they are giving to us.

    All these ppl that are saying 'this sucks' .... well you suck for expecting to much!! 2011 looks like a great improvement over what i consider to be a sucessful 2010 game. Try to be a bit more appreciative.

    I don't even want a formation lap. I remember it on F1CE and it was boring as arse, I just wanted to race. There is no way you'd be able to create your own team, this isn't GRID.

    I wouldn't like a "formation lap".... In F1 2010 during practice and qualifying I never drive onto the track.

    properly heating the tyres can be a big advantage. i'm sure the FL will be optional [like SC]

    No it won't be in. It's been confirmed. He said it may be in a future F1 game though

    Hasn't that been the point of all f1 games? Racing? How dumb do you have to be to not realise that?

    Formation lap a waste of time, but a victory lap would be cool and drive in to park ferme.

    Agreed.
    Formation Lap would be a crap gimmick, driving into Parc Ferme after the race would be pretty cool though

    Knowing me I would miss an apex during my victory lap and take it into a wall

    Well that's one way to celebrate by wrecking the car. Reminds me when Ralf Schumacher retired from F1 at the end of the 2007 season (I think or it was 2008) by having his team set his car on fire at the end of the race in Brazil.
