I'm currently playing F1 2010 on the PS3. I thought as an introduction to the game, I would turn all the simulations and damages off and turn the driver aids on, just to get a feel for the game. It appears that I originally overestimated these settings as I soon began to take 4 seconds a lap out of the second fastest car in races and 3 seconds during qualifying after turning off the braking assist. My racing simulation skills are by no means honed, however, I am able to brake well and follow the racing line quite well in my own opinion. This leads to my predicament; I currently am at Ferrari, with a good car and a good understanding of what setup to run at each race, but, when I turn tyre simulation off, I lose around 7 to 8 seconds each lap, including the flying lap. I was interested in the opinions of the people who frequent this forum as they seem to know a great deal about the game. I always have optimum tyre temperature, however, simply setting the tyre simulation to "On" means that even in the first corners at Catalunya, the car simply doesn't have the grip to hit a single apex, especially at turn 3. Could anyone shed any light onto this? Whether it is slightly buggy or whether it is just my lack of practice with game. The tyre simulation is getting to be quite infuriating. Thank you.
