  1. No red flags? A shame, I think that would have made it just that bit more realistic

    I already have my copy!! wohooo! but I have to wait until saturday to play… can’t wait.
    By the way, I don’t see why no car failures are such a big deal, when today cars almost never have some mechanical issue who forces you to abandon the race

  3. Well the stop go penalties isn’t a deal breaker, Have there been any this season?

    I’ll reserve judgement until I play it.

    Does anyone know whats going on with the north american release of this game?! I pre-ordered from best buy (in seattle), and it was supposed to be released yesterday, but the store STILL hasnt gotten the shipment of the games yet, and none of the other stores Ive called in the area have it either, but I cant find anything about it on google. Has anybody heard of delays or any other detail?

    I’ve read the checklist and everyone’s comments, but forgive me if this has already been mentioned.

    One thing time and time again I wish I saw in F1 games is the ability to change drivers, make your own and customize. A lot of people will be playing this for years to come, but you all know how it is! The realism is sapped immediately once you’re racing a driver on the game and then you realise ‘oh yeah, he’s not in F1 anymore’ or if he’s driving for the wrong team.

    Not asking for anything too complex, it’d be just nice to keep the field up to date so the career mode doesn’t age so quickly, thus reducing replayability.

    It’s my birthday on the 29th so holding out in case anyone a) buys it for me, or more likely b) gives me gift vouchers for HMV or somewhere that sells it…
