Hi all I'm new here, so go easy I just wanted to ask a few questions. Apologies if they have been covered before. Seems like a friendly forum for this great game. I'm of an age where I can recall playing Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix on an Atari ST (eighteen years ago!) virtually of all my waking hours, meticulously tweaking and noting down car set ups, completing literally dozens and dozens of laps prior to qualifying each race (The car and team colour schemes back then were crude, but were clearly of Mansell, Hill and a young whipper snapper called Schumacher ha ha!) These days, I've got kids and work and so my time gaming is limited - a few hours a week at best *cry* Thanks very much to all those who have taken the time to post car set ups - I've been where you are and I've not the time to do it now, so thanks A few questions if I may: 1. Starting team - I'm with Virgin - I presume you can't just step into a Red Bull or a Ferrari? You have to earn your way to those teams? 2. As above, I presume you cannot effectively expect to qualify on the front grid, given your starting team / car is techinically not as good as the front runners? 3. Am I right in thinking as you progress you 'unlock' technical advances, which make your car faster? How long does this take? I appreciate you reading, and thank you in advance for any replies. Happy racing!
