    Screenshot analytics, let's get crackin'! What Grand Prix Car or Formula class could it be? Let's start searching for any Formula class which in 2012 used Pirelli tyres and used those exact rims (manufacturer is BBS possibly?)

    The Pirelli website shows that GP2 and GP3 make use of Pirelli tyres. Upon further inspection of the rims of both the 2012 GP2 and 2012 GP3 car I couldn't find any picture that had the same style of rims as in the screenshot. Am I wrong or does anyone else have another idea?

    Grand Prix Car means a car racing in Formula 1 basically :)

    here is another shot from before, I remembered they put it out and just take a careful look at the steering wheel http://racesimcentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/rfactor2-Marussia-F1-car.jpg . Now look again at this http://www.uk2.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/Marussia-F1-Steering-Wheel.jpg which is the real Marussia wheel, seems familliar? :)

    It is indeed the Marussia wheel, Kacper, but the rims of the 2012 Marussia car aren't black.. The rims of the Pirelli F1 Test car are indeed black. Maybe the Pirelli F1 Test car uses a Marussia steering wheel? Looks like we're on a trail (if we didn't figure it out already!)
     
  9. The Pirelli test car's steering wheel looks like this: http://wtf1.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Eyeline.png

    My guess is ISI have signed a deal with Pirelli to supply data for their tyre model?
