This is serious business haha! Kittens are serious business :blush: ! As wel as F1 2017 :smiley:

As someone who lives in the US - a market that clearly F1 is trying to expand in - I hope we get a few. Think it would be helpful to Codemasters to get some US views that might help them look at how to market here as well.

Hey, just for clarification, just like last year, Xbox One and PC is worldwide, PS4 is Europe only.

Great, I'm out again. Sucks to be a North American PS4 user.

We will know when they will announce that they are sending the mails to the selected beta testers.
When they will do that is unknown, they didn't want to tell us (they may not have decided yet)

Yeah, it's good to hear that testing starts this early in the year.

Of course, the trade-off for anyone testing right now is having to stay in Birmingham. Can't have it all, I guess.

I don't understand how they can have a base of handling for the new game when they don't even know the nature of the cars in real life, never mind that we haven't even seen them run a lap over the tv yet etc. (That's if they are testing the handling, which I assume they are)
 F1 drivers are just getting to grips with them in real life, so how come CodeMasters know how they handle when real F1 teams don't ? Slightly concerned if I'm honest. How can they expect a few youtubers to know. (No disrespect to the guys,) but come on.

Well you would think that Codies got some simulation data from the teams? Just as they got car models...

Yeah, I understand that, but surely you can't fully understand a car until they have run laps in it over a day or 2, or even a race. I don't believe they rely on simulation data to make the handling model. Do you really think teams are going to give data out this early when they are against each other for a Championship. 

Taken from a source who is watching the testing. 

 The cars do look more spectacular from trackside, with the increased corner speed and different shape. My only concern is how much you are going to see the drivers really at work and the cars moving around, as they seem planted.

Great...Back to the original YouTube testers...the game will get hyped up by these guys, then CM will change a bunch of things just before launch...then we will be right back to where F1 2016 left off.

tbf there are 4 guys from the PS4 All-Star race there alongside Gillon, Limitless and Noble, so they have a descent selection of competetive league racers. I guess Aarav and Ben are there fir Career Mode, Still i think that more competetive league racers should have been invited, bc they really know the ins and outs of the game and can see things differently. Tbf  ITB is a nice publicity for them, so in term sof hyping up the game they did things right, i just hope that the feedback of the league racers will be not drowned in the handling beta considering there will be 900 ppl

I got nothing against the YouTube guys. My issue is items like wet weather was really hyped by these guys but then come release and CM removes the rain spray coming off the cars...or not to mention the lack of sparks coming from the back of the car.  Everyone complains that the AI is too easy in the rain, well if we had real rainspray effects then there will be more of a challenge. 

I really want CM to nail this year's game as this might be the last official F1 game I buy...I'm all for safety but the halo concept planned for 2018 will make cockpit view unplayable or very ugly and ruin the experience.

I think you said well. There are actual league racers like you mentioned, there are youtubers (mostly for Career Mode and stuff) like Tiatmetmarduk or aarava and there are players (who prefer a good experience overall) like ITB or xMattyG. I think it's a quite well selected team. (And I think my English is kinda broken at this point)

The cars won't handle much differently, Codies will use the same handling model of 2016 and just increase corning ability with some more downforce, it's not like the current cars are accurate to the real thing anyway, even proper simulators aren't that close like Assetto/RF2/AMS/iRacing

They're good simulations, and Codemasters isn't even anywhere near those.
