Agree with the point about B-Spec… what happened to the x3 speed play you got in GT4??? (I’d want x10 or something for the 24 hour races!)
Also bigger grids (12-16 still not massive is it), a proper damage model, realistic fuel effects and aerodynamic addons properly affecting performance would be nice
Decent AI wouldn’t go a miss- in NASCAR on GT5 you smash into an AI car and he sticks to his line while you are the only one who gets shunted into the wall25th March 2013, 1:24 at 1:24 am #229448

Me too. Why complicate things?3rd January 2013, 22:09 at 10:09 pm #219345
Preferably run against the flow of traffic, so the roundabout hairpin would be the first tight corner and the pits are on the opposite side of the dual carridgeway. Goes past Boston Grammar School, Boston United FC and uses the main town roads (So raceday traffic would be even worse than normal!) Get the boats in the Maud Foster and in the Haven, its the Monaco of Lincolnshire!12th November 2012, 11:32 at 11:32 am #214888
go for it, I’ll see if Seb and Schumi can make it 6 in a row8th November 2012, 22:15 at 10:15 pm #214699
Best- Schumacher pole in Monaco- pure magic. Closely followed by Vettel’s pits to podium
Worst- The Wiiliams pit fire and on track it is the bit pileup at Spa (even if my driver sort of benefitted from it)28th October 2012, 8:51 at 8:51 am #213882

Until they grass/gravel them areas, they will do it, racing drivers will do anything to get a competitive advantage.2nd August 2012, 9:30 at 9:30 am #206500
24 Massa. Alonso has been brilliant which makes him look worse but he makes the Ferrari look like a mid grid dog. Cannot handle an unstable car, Silverstone apart, a disasterous set of results.
23 Senna- Raw pace seriously lacking, despite a couple of good results, but when Maldonado put it high up and he’s mid grid, it is worrying
22 Vergne- Qualy pace seriously needs work and though the Toro Rosso is uncompetitive, shouldn’t be beaten by Caterhams as often as he has been. Shown promise in the wet though.
21 Karthikeyan- Most memeroble moment so far goes to him for being 10th at the rain delay in Malaysia and then got in the limelight for colliding with Vettel. He’s slower than his teammate but not the worst driver this year for me, he’s done ok.
20 Ricciardo- Slightly better than Vergne, mostly due to super qualy performances. 6th in Bahrain was mega but blew it on lap 1. STR need to find more pace for him and JEV to shine.
19 Button- A great start but way too inconsistant. 0 points in 4 races from Bahrain to Canada is horrible. Struggled to get the right balance.
18 Glock- Marussia need to give him a better car but Pic is beginning to get the better of him, has his motivation finally gone? Was superb at Monaco though, and almost beat Kovalainen to 13th after the Finn’s late stop.
17 Kobayashi- Poor season to be honest, a couple of good results paper over the cracks that he’s increasingly inconsistant and getting into trouble more than he should.
16 Petrov- Good teammate for Kovalainen, pushing him hard and briefly ran 10th near the end in Valencia. Qualypace could still improve a touch but he’s not doing himslef any harm at Caterham
15 de la Rosa- Solid as you would expect but in the HRT its hard to shine. Can only beat who is your teammate and he’s murdered Karthikeyan.
14 Maldonado- A brilliant win in Spain aside and he’s blown way too many points for me. The car is very quick, he is very quick but needs to have clean weekends, but better to be quick and error prone than just slow.
13 Schumacher- Desperately unlucky with several DNFs, mostly not his fault, but a couple of poor weekend have hurt him, such as Hungary (his worst ever?). Brilliant pole in Monaco and a podium in Valencia are highlights.
12 Pic- Impressive rookie season and is now putting Glock under serious pressure, amazing race in Hungary but needs a better car
11 Kovalainen- He still stand out as the best of the backmarker drivers, dragging the Caterham to Q2 occasionally but the car needs a scond per lap for him to shine more. Was great at Monaco though holding off Button
10 Grosjean. Blinding pace but inconsistant, too many DNFs to mount a title challenge, but he’s done his career no harm in his 2nd chance.
9 Hulkenberg- Getting on terms with di Resta and has pulled off some impressive qualy results lately, especially in the wet.
8 Perez A couple of standout results in the Sauber and the talent is showing through. Still could be more consistant but the car seems to be hot and cold.
7 Rosberg. Took a brilliant win in China and has been pretty consistant in the Merc, but its speed is now tailing off. Still a good 11 races though
6 di Resta. In a Force India which is normally 8th best, he has regularly knocked in useful points. Hulkenberg is now matching him but Paul has the points
5 Raikkonen- Despite being out-qualified by Groshean his races have been excellent and he’s been ultra consistant with only 1 non score. Dark horse for the title with the Lotus. Win still elusive though.
4 Webber- Closed the gap to Vettel and is ahead on points and just about neck and neck on pace. Consistant scoring with 2 great wins
3 Vettel- Despite a tricky start and un-Vettel like qualy results, his race pace has been excellent. Only blips are the drive thru in Spain and the ‘overtake’ on Button in Germany. Bad luck in Malaysia/Europe.
2 Hamilton- Most consistant qualifier, but for bad luck, he’d be right up there with Alonso’s points tally
1 Alonso. Simply superb, maximised results at just about every race, took superb wins, has not missed a beat all season.26th June 2012, 16:00 at 4:00 pm #204586
As of now i’d say RB and Lotus are out in front, then Ferrari/Mclaren/Merc all very tightly together (still only a mite behind the top 2) then Williams (drivers massively underachieved), Sauber, FI, and then Toro Rosso getting worryingly close to Caterham, with HRT getting alongside Marussia.
Over the season, Mlaren go up a couple, Ferrari down a couple, then from that order RB/Merc swap15th May 2012, 15:14 at 3:14 pm #199976
I’d swap Hamilton and Raikkonen personally
other than that I don’t think anything is glaringly obvious. Maybe di Resta a touch higher24th April 2012, 17:19 at 5:19 pm #199972
Not sure how you only give Vettel a 9 in Bahrain for taking a hattrick
Not sure how Kimi gets a 10 for screwing up in qualy, which cost him possibly the win.
Other than that i see where you’re going.
For me te best drivers of the first 4 races have been Alonso, di Resta and Hamilton19th January 2012, 10:05 at 10:05 am #190465
Formulaq 1 97 was probably my favourite and one of the best, Foermula One (95) was quite good too.
2011 on my PC isn’t mega, although i have had to turn the graphics and stuff down a lot.
98 was easily the worst game though16th December 2011, 23:52 at 11:52 pm #187566
Damon, watch the BBC post race forums, he’s nrmally laughing about something when he gets interviewwed then.
Fair enough, he goes on (a lot) in the unilaterals but talking to Lee McKensie he’s normally less PR
