    Have tried different setups for the four first races of my second season, but the RB6 feels so understeered compared to the Force India wich I drowe in my first season. Is it just me, is it ment to be like that, or..?

    Unless I'm mistaken, the RB6 has a lot more downforce than most of the other cars on the grid, which does sometimes cause increased understeer.

    It has terrible terrible understeer in carrer mode, but just did a grand prix in gp-mode around valencia, magnificent car!
    Have seen many others complain about that cars are more difficult in carrer than in time trail and gp-mode. Turning the wheel 180 degrees in almost every corner..almost not depending on the speed :p

    Sorry to be an*l but surely a car that has more downforce would have less problems with understeer. Understeer certainly isnt an issue for the Red Bulls is real life due to the good aerodynamic package they have.

    I don't know, but for my style of driving, I would rate RB6 number 1, mp4-25c number 2 for cornering. I never had problems with understeer with the above two cars. Career mode etc.

    In GP mode and time trial, all cars are fully upgraded. In career mode, you have to unlock the upgrades first. That's why the car handling is worse when starting a new season.
    By the way, the RB6 is not quite known for being understeery. To say it with Coulthards words: "The amount of front grip that this car generates is quite impressive" (see
    ).

    I find the McLaren worse for understeer than the red bull in any mode
