    How do you turn them off? I can't find a command in the options.

    Annoyingly, it doesn't get rid of all of them. Low fuel results in a large unnecessary banner, which is very annoying when you're tying to concentrate on worn tyres at the tail end of a race!

    Is there any way to shrink them?

    Or move them to the side?

    Unfortunately not. I think maybe the fuel one and DQ notifications about other drivers is an oversight by S3, and that they should be disabled by the overlay setting.

    Jups, right in your virtual mirror :mad:
    And it would be nice to have standings above the trackmap with multiple options so you can keep track of the race, even if your battling yourself at the end of the field :p

    This is the problem with interfaces that are fixed. Both AMS and AC allow the user to position things however they like, and even customise the size and layout of that info. (Not to mention making your own widgets, but we'll not go into that. :p) R3E on the other had has everything fixed in place, and not even in good places. Ridiculously large message banners than cover your virtual mirror, a position bar which is limited to the top edge, a track map which is stuck on the left and a virtual motec stuck on the right.

    I can't imagine it would be all that difficult to give us options to modify the HUD when driving, so here's hoping they add it sooner rather than later.

    Same here until recently. Now it appears as a large banner which appears right across the virtual mirror, just below the position bar.

    It pops up at the moment you arrive at the sectors end. When the other annoying popups comes with intervals if not disabled. But turning off overlay doesn't help get rid of the fuel banner :(

    Does turning overlays off disable the annoying lap time popup, which when in VR is right in your LOS?

    It does in regular mode, not sure about VR.
