Well, I follow the codemasters forums and can already answer some of your questions!
@Keith- Steve said that Yammamoto wont be in it, so dont excpect Heidfeld in it either.
@Tommy B89- No, theres no DLC for the game.
@Superted666- No, the 2011 game will be released at about the same time next year as the 2010 one.
@Damonsmedley- No wheel tethers sadly. judging by the damage videos, it takes a HUGE hit to take off a wheel on even the most realistic damage setting. The wings come off and little peices of the wings can fall off too, not just the whole wing. I cant post any videos cause im in school and theyve blocked youtube and things like that, but there was a video where a McLaren rammed a Ferrari at about 160 mph and the ferrari kept on going, didnt even lose a wing, or spin! So the over hyped damage model is quite dissapointing actually. But this may be better for online play, so that theres no idiots ramming us off the roads and damaging our cars beyond repair.
However I would still like some clarification on the damage model, because it said somewhere that the car can be damaged down to the safety cell, and then they said it couldn’t, and Targa (Steve Hood) made it quite hard to decipher what he meant on the forums….
