The Codemasters F1 series never had an "Action" camera in replays. Only trackside.
The view is always of a single car during replays. Why would I want to watch a single car for 50 laps if I'm spectating?
Other F1 games (even going as far back as F1GP by Microprose (1993) had an Action camera.
During a replay the view would switch automatically to interesting action during the race. 90% trackside cam but switching between cars automatically, Someone overtaking; it cut to an onboard of that driver, someone kicks up some grass; it cut to a nosecam shot of that car, onboard someones rearwing view if they had a guy closing up on slipstream, etc. Watching replays felt like watching an actual GP, instead of 50 laps watching a single car go round and round. It was dynamic, instead of static.
Perhaps thats something Codemasters could do aswell.
PS: And while we're there why not trackside camera option during driving? Other games have it. And there's nothing like doing donuts around Monaco and admiring the 3D model of the cars when in live trackside view as you are driving.
