    are these working.

    meaning are there any difference in the car's physics attributes,grip/brakes. so on.
    Has I like to try out the real weather conditions currently for the day I'm racing.and also is there a way we can get the weather to be less than 10c.

    currently today weather for nurberg is 3c but I can not go any lower than ten.:(

    Well, actually there is weather, but not rain.

    Weather conditions do have influence on track temps, and track temps have an influence on grip. Apart from that, I don't think there is more. For example, air temperature should affect engine performance, but I dont think it does.

    air temp affects downforce and drag directly
    air temp affects engine power directly.
    air temp affects tyre temps which affect grip.
    air temp PROBABLY affects brake temps(never tested).
    track temp does not affect grip directly.

    air temps affect surface temp that affects grip level of surface, also affected by time of day .. as far as I remember ..

    Actually, you can set temperatures below 10°C with running your own race through .ini files, like Content Manager does it. It's just not officially supported.

    Well, kind of. It takes whatever values you put in but I don't think it's designed to work with temps below zero - tyre temperatures rise on their own towards zero. But it kind of works and has some effect on tyre grip though tyre temps. Not sure about air density, engine output. The server manager allows for ambient temps between 0 and 45°C so I suppose that's where everything works as expected.
