Tinfoil hat moment but I'm 100% sure that this is all Ferrari's PR team fault; the 3 month delay, the slight performance decreases; they can't accept that their car is that bad and the "bad PR" that having it be the 6th car on the grid in the game, even though everybody knows where they are right now IRL.

It's definitely a shocker.

And they didn't even update the performance in My Team...The main selling point of this years game...The main topic (apart from multiplayer) of every gameplay video on Youtube

Then why did they even accept to be in F1 2014-16?..

Monaco is a bad example for a realistic steering lock since they use special wishbones and suspension components there to get easier around the hotel hairpin.

In the above image, red bull and Williams can see their maximum steering angle when they come out of the maintenance station. This angle is not achieved in the game

Oh please let me at least live my video game life without being constantly reminded of these damn masks that I have to wear 12 - 13 hours a day.
This was a bit of sarcastic joke, with the 1.13 update in mind.
Next time i wil use brackets [sarcasm]...[/sarcasm]

I was going to write about cockpit views and Act Blue but that would probably get me banned, so no. If you really want to mimic this year, Almost all sims included graphic options to remove the audience, so you can achieve that yourself. Next delete all the tracks that were skipped. Yes, delete them, No Viet Nam, No Austin, Should be about 13 tracks you must remove. Then go find the replacements. Good luck.

I tried it and the handling is different than last year.

If it had this years tracks or some better 90s and 00s car options I might have bought it.
