Guys don't be so excited, this virtual rearview mirror is exclusive to PC. Once again, console players are left in the dark.
Comes down to console limits I'm afraid, it'd have a significant effect on frame rate and the like. 
yeah control settings for gamepad etc will eb included too... very good.. and some point to point tracks maybe from grid 2 like cote d azure and california.... lets see.. :)
Control settings are also there for keyboard :)

Great stuff, finally step 1 

Hope we will see step 2 soon in the next patch  :  Decent cockpits

Seriously though, it's about time that the PC version get's things it should have had, but didn't get because of the consoles limitations.

Dont kid yourself, there's no chance of that. It was a design decision made early on in the process; they knew they weren't going to have enough time and framerate overhead in the last gen consoles, so they skipped it and focused on other aspects.

Its not like they already modeled highly detailed cockpits, then just decided to put in extreme low poly versions in game. The fact is, most of the car were taken from Grid 2 which of course had no detailed cockpit. They around a year to make a brand new game using mostly old Grid 2 assets, and personally i think they have done a great job, with the time and resources available.

Now for the next game, you can almost guarantee excellent quality cockpit due to the criticism of Autosport. It'll be on the next gen EGO engine, and they will have had much longer to work on it.
