I've been away from computer games and F1 e-racing for some years now. But playing the Race Formula 90 board game made me want to get back into some racing. I "Steamed" F1 2013 because it seemed to have reasonable hardware requirements (which I easily meet with a core i7 and AMD R7) and contained the classic car/tracks from the days when I followed F1 more closely. I have an Xbox 360 controller and have put in a lot of hours without seeing much improvement. I've read and tried different custom adjustments, and, frankly, none of them seem to do any good. Fine control in the corners or curves is almost impossible. Moving the stick left or right results in a huge turn as though the car is being wrenched into the corner. So to make a turn, it's a matter of jerk, straighten, jerk, straighten, etc. As I said earlier, making adjustments in linearity, etc., don't seem to make any difference at all. So the question is: am I missing something so totally obvious as to prove I'm an old buffoon or is this really only supposed to work with a wheel?
