    Well the reason am asking i have never used steam before, and my mate wants to get the new f1 game from steam but he dont want to run steam as he plays f1. So can he shut steam off before he plays it or does he have to use steam just to play f1?

    Yea, Steam does startup before the game starts,or it does in F1 2010.You can't start F1 2010 without running Steam.F1 2010 is installed in the Steam folder,I'm sure F1 2011 will be the same.

    To answer your question the simple answer is : NO.

    When you buy a game through Steam you need Steam running to play the game, it doesn't matter much as steam hardly takes up much power/resources.

    You only need to remember that you must have an internet connection to enable "offline mode". After that, you can go offline, but not before!
