    I think it's already been stated that these are all "under the hood" changes, so won't actually alter gameplay. Might fix some crashes/performance issues however.

    Yes, this is only an optimization patch. No gameplay fixes.

    i doubt it, it's quite hard to improve the fps on lower spec systems.

    Sometimes on the Track when machines run settings from medium-High in certian places it can lag or lower your fps abit... it has happened, maybe they have improved on this or the actual code, ofcourse the patch isn't changing anything to do with gameplay tho.

    I hope not, I have no faith in GFWL. I want a standalone patch to use whenever I need to reinstall. I'm sure that's what it will be.

    I'd imagine it will appear on here in no time, also on the official F1 2011 website.
