I know the standard for most people is cockpit view but I've recently started using the second cockpit view. I'll put a picture up later but my real wheel sits just like a real car as in, all I see on my screen is the dashboard and windscreen. I have a lot clearer view and I'm finding this could be the future lol. Occasionally, I'll change it to the close 3rd person view purely to listen to the sounds out of the exhaust. What's your favourite? Have you experimented?

Typically I use the first cockpit view with correct FOV. I try to adjust the virtual seat to be as accurate to the real thing as possible. Not entirely possible with my setup and still re-adjusting from time to time.

I also tried the Dashboard cam, the second in-car view. The minute I change all settings to be accurate to seating position it is not really different from the first one. Not sure what it tries to emulate. Sitting on the dashboard? ;)
But I've seen some people use it. Maybe on a sim-rig setup, where the monitor is just millimeters behind the actual wheel, it really makes sense? Not sure.

Started with cockpit with correct FOV (34), but had to move the FOV back just a touch to 38 just to get a very slightly better grasp of apex and exit line.

Currently at first in cockpit view with FOV @ 42 but I think I need to change it as recently moved my stuff around in the cave of men.
Will check tonight and report back!
