A question for the users of the game : am fan / user of sim racing , AC and ACC and AMS2. Is this game something for me? The rest of the game looks fantastic. ;):coffee:Thanks for the advice
Every year it gets closer and closer in my opinion from a driving perspective. Previous years the cars' handling was much less responsive in almost all types of corners. This year it improved, I only have problems with low speed understeer (compared to the "sim" cars). Of course overall it's more forgiving on the limit. AI is the best in simracing though, THAT is the main selling point for me apart from it being a licensed F1 game.

(Maybe it's just for me lol) Since the VR is uber puking in Dirt Rally I'm glad there is no VR in the game....
You’re glad a feature that many want isn’t available because YOU personally couldn’t handle it? Got some news for you, the world doesn’t in fact revolve around what you do or do not want

You buy it for the racing. If there's one thing that Codemasters gets right in this game it's racing against the AI.

I'm of the opinion that a lot of people here give it too much of a hard time. It never claims to be a hardcore driving simulator, however there's enough nuance in the handling to put it definitely in the sim category IMO. I play AC, ACC, R3R, rFactor and I don't feel like I'm missing much when I play F1.

It's just a damned good immersive racing game that really does give you the feeling that you're part of a Grand Prix, especially when you take the time to set the AI difficulty so that you're within a tenth or so of your AI team mate.

Would it really matter if VR is in the game as an option? It's not like it would take anything away from your experience. That said I can understand your stance against VR when Dirt Rally, which on scale of things is a pretty easy and light VR experience, can have that effect on you.

Amusingly enough, for Codemasters, the world doesn't revolve around VR owners either.

Will the performance update be something I can apply when I want? I'm in the middle of my second season and I'm in a pretty good fight with Ferrari for third best on the grid. I'd hate to have this update take that away. If I could apply it at the end of the season, that'd be great.

I would...The career mode alone is second to none. No one has matched it yet! Oh, the racing is just as good too!. I say you won't be disappointed if you are an F1 fan.
The things that always annoy me are the bugs, inconsistent ai (always having to change the difficulty) and the unrealistic weather (too many wet races)... Are they gone?

I wished they improved / update the custom liveries for your own team, there is so much disconnect between stylized liveries of real race cars, and the really basic custom ones

they don't even have a engine manufacturer logo on the car :(

You're right, the AI is not perfect as well as the game and yes, changing the difficulty is needed for the different tracks. But this is the only F1 game in town, there are no other "Official" F1 competition developers. IMO, bugs and all, I still like the game, but that's me, I love the career mode a lot and I don't take it seriously in terms of not being that realistic.
