    Go to documents/my games/formulaone and edit the hardware_settings_config.xml file. Near the bottom you'll see a line that starts with <mirrors enabled="true" change the true to false and save the file.

    That should do what you want.

    <mirrors enabled="false" forceBilinear="false" width="1024" height="256" car_maxlod="1" car_culldist="300.0" />
    <skidmarks enabled="true" />
    <dynamic_ambient_occ enabled="true" />
    <track_reflections enabled="true" />
    <physics environmentalDamage="true" vehicleDamage="true" />
    <motion enabled="true" ip="dbox" port="20777" delay="1" extradata="0" />
    </hardware_settings_config>

    Strange, used to work in Grid by doing that so I presumed it would be the same in F1 2010.
