    What camera do you use?

    Not how I would have put it but I tend to agree with this. Personally I want everything as close to what the driver sees, simply for the immersion.

    Bahrain Mirror Bug

    I can second this. Happened to me too at Bahrain and Melbourne in my team. I have patch 1.05, downloading patch 1.06 as I type. Using PS4. Using fanatec CSL Elite wheel and pedals. Please fix asap because it makes cockpit view unusable without proximity arrows.

    Hey JesseDeya, Personally, I don't think switching to the T-cam or offset cam is the answer to solving the realism problem around awareness. I think the cockpit view with careful attention to the sounds of other cars and with the camera customised to see the mirrors is a more realistic solution. I use RIG800HS headphones at full volume when I race to try and listen out for car sounds in cockpit view, which works, but does make me wonder if F1 2020 supports Dolby Atmos to make it even better? Regarding your comment around peripheral vision and helmets, as you can imagine due to road safety there is research on this which suggests that those who wear full face helmets have to turn their heads further vs. other helmets to enable them to see more. I too ride and definitely think my peripheral vision is somewhat compromised when wearing my full face helmet, hence why it's important to do the full turn of the head when doing the life-saver check and not just a quick glance with your eyes. I must admit I don't know for sure if F1 drivers helmets are any different but at a glance you can see that their visors are smaller vs. MotoGP for example. Nevertheless, I'm conscious at this point we are digressing from the forum topic. A quick question out of curiosity but would you use the cockpit view if VR and Dolby Atmos were available? Many thanks T

    "The lack of peripheral vision is not realistic" I disagree, there is little peripheral vision for the F1 drivers. They rely heavily on sounds of other cars and to some degree their mirrors too in close quarters. Even just wearing a helmet restricts the peripherals when operating any vehicle, let alone being sat in an F1 car. Agree with you that VR is definitely the next step for codemasters F1 series. I think Lee Mathers said it will be something they will consider developing for 2021. They had a tight schedule this year with COVID19 restrictions and two new tracks to create. You can kind of recreate VR in codemasters F1 games with vorpX but doesn't give you the ability to see around the halo for example.

    I use the cockpit cam with a wider FOV so I can see the mirrors. This is on a 55 inch TV which is on a moveable TV wall mount (see pic). I also have the halo removed, no assists to try and replicate as much realism as possible. If true VR was possible on F1 2020 then I'd keep the Halo. With all of this, I am able to race competitively at 85 (expert). Personally, I find it odd that some use a wheel and the t-cam. Surely the point of using a wheel is to replicate the experience of an F1 driver? Am I wrong? I definitely understand the benefits of the t-cam e.g. better awareness and car position when cornering - also aesthetically it's more pleasing. In previous years did the same when I had a controller and it meant I could play on 110 difficulty.
