F1 2014 Cockpit View

I'm on PS3, so I can't post without capture equipment.  But I'll admit I'm not a pro either.  Sorry, sometimes my sarcasm comes out in my posts and I hit send before i really think about what I'm typing.

To post something on topic, I think the cockpit will be the same.  I wouldn't be suprised if they are exactly the same as 2013.  I bet 2014 will be a lot of cut and past with new car models, the updated tracks, and sounds.  And as long as there are no game breaking bugs, I'm ok with that.

I think it will stay wide at around 55 degrees and it will of course be slightly different in each car as the cockpits, seat/mirror positions etc will have changed a bit.

I still say, give us the option to position the camera and set the FoV ourselves though - USER CAM.

I know your asking about cockpit view so going off topic but that driving was painfull to watch. I cant see them changing the cockpit view tho this year as they arent even replicating the cockpits from the f1 cars this year so not much chance of a better one. Knowing codemasters it prob more dumbed down than ever this year but I really hope I am wrong on that!

Can an option be added to remove the steering wheel and hands?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe F1 2010 had this option?   It should definitely be included though.  Who needs to see two steering wheels?

F1 2010 didn't have this option, but why would you want it anyway, it just adds to the games fun.

Many people playing with steering wheels on racing games like to be able to remove the steering wheel and hands from in game to add to the immersion. The steering wheel and hands of the actual player then effectively replace the in game hands/wheel, if the screen/wheel stands are at the right height.

This.  The majority of sim-racers do not have the in-game wheel/arms visible.  Really makes no sense if you think about it.

The majority of sim-racers are in iRacing, as there's over 40,000 members. Most of them race with wheel/arms visible. The few that don't mentioned that it's because their PC's are not top of the line and they have fps issues.

That's not even remotely true.  First of all, iRacing has very low system requirements.  I get almost 200 fps with everything maxed (if not running v-sync), and though it's all overclocked, my hardware is approaching 4 years old.   No one is turning wheel/arms off to get more FPS - the impact is minimal.  If you're really struggling for FPS in iRacing, there are other things you can turn off that will have more of an impact, like the crowd.  Are you actually on iRacing?  I am, I'm very active on the forums, I own a website that runs an iRacing league, and I watch a LOT of iRacing videos.  The majority definitely have wheel/arms turned off.  If you are on iRacing, search the forum for wheel arms and you'll see lots of people recommend that the first thing that new drivers should do is turn off wheels and arms!

Yes, I'm actually on iRacing and have completed nearly 200 official races. That's the first thing I did after I bought my new gaming pc 7.5 months ago. I get almost 300 fps with everything maxed out and it's not even overclocked. Obviously my gaming pc is not struggling for fps but my laptop was. I did iRacing for the first month on my laptop while my gaming pc was being built and experimented with wheel/arms. I watched many iRacing youtube videos and most show wheel/arms. I have seen some with wheel/arms turned off and heard the narrators explain why it's this way(low fps for them).
