I remember back in F1 2012 (and 2014 too, I think), localised (or sector-by-sector) weather was actually a thing. To have the weather change over one part of the track, and then gradually spread to the whole track over a number of laps, the sort of thing you now get in Project Cars 2.
The first time I experienced this was in a race at Malaysia, absolutely black storm clouds coming towards the circuit, and then several laps later, it started to rain in sector 2, but stayed dry in the other half of the circuit. Being on softs, it was such a thrill rushing around the track and then suddenly having to go on tippy-toes around 3 or 4 corners, and wondering if it would go away and I could cling on without having to pit. And then a few laps after that, the whole track was wet, and strategies went out the window, everyone pitting, it was brilliant. It added a whole new level of immersion and strategy.
The sad thing is, this *seems* to have disappeared in F1 2017 (and 2016 before it). When it rains, it's the whole track or nothing. Any chance of this coming back? Or is it still in there and I'm just missing something?
