    Vettel is as good as any of the other top 6 drivers. Much like Shumacher or Senna, his wins have come about because he's one of the top drivers who happens to also have the best car and the best crew. He's a great driver though, can't take anything away from that.

    I'm a huge Ricciardo fan, but the reason Ric is out pacing Vettel is because the 2014 car suits his driving and experience much greater than it suits Vettel. 
    So , the same reason Vettel beat Webber then ?  ;)
    No, Vettel is just a better driver.

    What's the second screen option for in the PC version ?
    It's a cool little feature that displays data on your second screen from the POV of a pitcrew with timing data and a small cam feed type view of your current driving view. I disabled it after a minute or two of playing with it, but it's a nice feature have included.

    Loore, any chance of a FOV slider? Would help the sense of speed quite a bit IMO.

  3. And here is me deliberately getting the PC version because I figured it would look so much better than the PS3 version, with a good graphics card.
    Well it does look a whole lot better, naturally. It's not going to be a completely different experience though, the PC version is of course very much tied to the console version. But there's higher resolution, faster frame rates and Codies have released the 2gb texture pack so IMO they're doing okay.

    A FOV slider in-game wouldn't go a miss though, Loore ;)

    Well I said I'd be back after a run.

    My first 68mins with the game is pretty clear. The cockpit view sucks donkey balls. Sorry but that's all that can be said there, it needs detail and unblurring (wth is with that? It actually hurts my eyes...).

    It's blurred because it's their (Codies) way of hiding that there's no real detail there. Why's there no detail? Because the game and engine are designed to operate within the limitations of the 360/PS3 (probably why an interior view was never officially offered in Grid 2...), and fair enough too (I think Codies have been very open about that). Why haven't Codies developed a high detail cockpit view for PC? Probably a cost/time decision.

  5. I'm one of those weird creatures that loved Grid 2. According steam I spent 65 hours on Grid 2, had 259 online races and averaged 2nd (yay!). I like all kinds of race games from sims to arcade games and I liked Grid 2 because it didn't try to be something it wasn't. The drifting was used perfectly to hide the lack of physics but in Autosport that's not the case. Autosport is trying to be something that it's not. There's no physics here, it's trying to be an 'in-between' between simulation and arcade but it should just be a full on arcade game. It's just the Dirt 3 engine powering a tarmac based race game. And we know how bad Dirt 3 felt on tarmac…

    But I don't hate the game and I think I'll get a lot of enjoyment from it but it is just a little frustrating that Codemasters have bent to the will of people who are asking for simcade when there's simply not one to offer here.

  7. The track's been added a thousand times before and it must take a ton more resources and time to map this track's 20-odd km as opposed to the usual couple of km's for any other track. I'd prefer that devs concentrate on smaller, less well known tracks that are just as deserving of digital representation. Limerock, Lakeside, Pukekohe raceway for example.
