Well it's pretty much as awesome as I was hoping. Driving it around Silverstone gives a weird sense of deja vu, after watching so much onboard F1 footage over the years.
It's fairly easy to drive under the limit, but once you start to push things it really gets interesting. Needs very good throttle control at low speed which is great, and there's so many setup options which might cause my brain to explode. My only gripe is that the tyres feel very under damped, which leads to a bit of a "pogo" effect after some bumps / curbs, but hopefully we can tune that out with the setup options. Best sim experience yet though easily.
That offer for new customers (Williams, silverstone, zandvoort) seems a bit pointless, surely new customers wouldn't be able to race on those combo's online anyway for ages until they got all their ratings up, am I right?
you're right..... to race online you'd have to drive with others in hosted races only...... to get your A license would take a while and some $$$ to buy the content needed to get there. However, you would still get a kick ass car to drive
They are doing a fun series for the Williams with no ratings. The circuits that will be used are Lime Rock, Laguna Seca, Silverstone and Zandvoort so that deal would actually give you all the content to race the car in some form every week.
