    I’m an Arsenal fan, although I was a season ticket holder at Leyton Orient for a few years a teenager, so I still have a soft spot for them.

    Even as an Arsenal fan, I expect us to have a pretty rough season in all honesty.

    “I can’t remember what the last race I didn’t see live was. I know I didn’t see Australia 1994 live because I was quite young then and I wasn’t allowed to stay up late/get up early enough to watch it! So that’s probably it.” – Keith

    I was 11 years old when that race was on. I have always assumed I watched it live, but I obviously didn’t. I’ve only just realised I was probably watching the repeat! I sat there wishing Damon Hill could carry on and it was just a recording. Brilliant! Hahaha!

    I really felt for Damon Hill at the end of 1994. He had seen his team mate die in the same car he was driving that year and got so close to winning the title as Schumacher initially hit the wall, before Michael turned into him on the next corning. It was heartbreaking watching him sit in the car in the pits as the team tried to fix, he just knew it was over really.

    Nelson Piquet won his second championship, beating Prost by 2 points, the year I was born (1983).

    The first season I watched properly was Prost winning the 1993 championship. I’ve watched F1 ever since.

    I don’t mind. They are all identical in multiplayer anyway I believe.

    I’d most definitely be up for it. I missed the last championship. Someone should set up a dedicated site for it though, as the forums make it hard to follow…

    @Fixy oh thank god! I’m glad to hear you are using traction control and abs. With those results you were my new god! hehe

    @Ell You do get used to racing without traction control. You learn where the grip is and to be very careful with bumps. Feathering the throttle is a must as you start to accelerate, you learn which corners to be careful at very quickly, and its much easier with an xbox 360 gamepad as the triggers are better than my ps3 pads.

    It’s such a great game. I can’t wait for the next one.

    @Fixy I’d say it’s time to up the difficulty level again. If you are on expert, wowsa! Good going!

    I must have placed 100 plus hours into this game since the day I bought it (on release) I’d love to know the exact figure.

    I’m playing on legendary difficulty with all driving aids off (apart from automatic gears).

    I’m driving for Virgin and currently have a handful of points half way through the season.

    I still can’t get anywhere near the AI cars in Monaco and Spain. Even on the easiest AI settings and recommended car set ups from the internet. Those two races are so damn hard and throw my season out.

    I was thinking about that HRT mechanic that got hit at Monza last year as well. Does anyone know if he was okay in the end? It was kept very quiet!

    I’d love to play guys. I had assumed the championship had been full from day one. I’ve probably put a good 100 plus hours into the game and have a gold account.

    I dislike the 12-3pm races. They are slap bang in the middle of my weekend. So I endure a disjointed Sunday with little option to make use of the day.

    I love the fly-aways! Early morning starts are fantastic. I get to watch the race with a cup of coffee and breakfast and then have my entire Sunday to be sociable.

    I think I dislike the fans. :-/

    According to the fans everything is a conspiracy. They constantly look for false examples of a team trying to destroy the race of one of their own drivers. They constantly complain of the coverage, or the lack of overtaking, or too much overtaking, of F1 being too much about the cars when it has always been that way. Or bitching about a driver being “crap” when he has been out-qualified by his team mate by 0.050 of a second.

    I just want to watch the race, enjoy it, and come online to read about it. I don’t mind who wins, I just want to be entertained.

    I’m a fan, I dislike me. :D
