    Ugh. What an awful race! Couldnt do a lap in quali cos i kept spinning or cutting a corner and think i managed about 5 clean laps in the race without hitting a wall. Internet then cut out on what i guess was the final lap but quie glad i didn’t have to see how many times i was lapped ;) If there was a 107% rule online i wouldn’t have even got anywhere close on that track.

    Nah, you can only ever have one championship going at a time. If you’ve started one but want to start a new championship you have to go to the My F1 bit and start a new career which will wipe your old one

    I also started at Force India but picked Normal difficulty (the 2nd one) while i get used to the new game. Put the traction control down to medium and it’s pretty slippy. Australia was a nightmare!! Eventually managed to get the car round the track but qualified mid pack, got up the pecking order a bit but then screwed it all up and finished just ahead of the Lotuses as I kept spinning.

    Come Malasia though i’d gotten the hang of things and qualified 1st, 4 seconds ahead of Hamilton. Got to the first corner in about 5th (The Force india really can’t keep up with the main guys once they get going) but got back to 1st by the end of the lap. Pulled away for a few laps then inevitably spun again and got put down to 4th. Don’t know how i’m going to deal with no traction control but baby steps… Got back to the front by overtaking both Webber & Vettel at the 1st corner but got a 10 second penalty since i cut the corner to avoid a collision (amd refused to give the places back) and ended 4th.

    China was easy peasy, 1st in every session and won by 15 seconds.

    Just finished Turkey. I hate turn 8!! Never did before but the tendency of the cars to drift into a spin at 150 is annoying. Qualified 5th, finished 18th a minute behind. I reckon I made it round Turn 8 without spinning about 5 times in the entire grand prix (out of 12 laps).

    A few random things i’ve noticed though. In Melbourne, Vettel was behind me at one point and he crashed into me and took off his front wing. He was just as fast without it. In Malasia I also took off my own front wing and the handling of the car and my times were the same. not sure if this is because it’s on the medium difficulty or whether they’ve just messed up the damage model. Another fun thing about melbourne was when I rolled the car (twice) and then kept on going on my merry way without any damage. Good Times!!

    In my season Alonso is winning, then Webber, Massa, Hamilton, Me, Vettel in 6th, Petrov in 7th and then Button. If the real season had started like that the championship might still be wide open at this stage!

    Ordered the game yesterday and it was waiting for me when I got home today (meant to be released tomorrow). Good Times! Had a quick shot at a time trial before I realised i had to download a PS3 update. I cut the corner at the end of Montreal on my 2nd lap but it still kept my time. Took me a good few laps before I could beat that time by going through the corner properly. Seems pretty damned good apart from that though!

    Hey, are there any spaces left in this or is it all full up?

    Hey,

    This sounds like a great idea. Well up for it! I usually use the T-cam also but i suppose there’s not much difference to the cockpit so i’ll deal with it fine!
