From a cockpit user, if I were to use TCam, these angles are really nice. Low for the TCam & tight but able to see your mirrors! Great shots too!!

 

EDIT: In fact, can you please send me those settings. I may give them a sneaky go at some point 🙂

Hi! Here it is my camera settings! Hope you will use it in the future!! 😄

Cockpit with a bit more vertical height. The halo column doesn’t bother me.DFFMdB9.jpg

 

I used T-cam when I played these games with a controller. Now that I use a wheel, I prefer cockpit for that little bit extra immersion.

T-Cam Offset, however I use a custom high angle, look-down approach, similar to the older F1 games.

HUD off when I am recording B-Roll for my own YouTube, unless necessary to illustrate a point.

@PJTierney now that's a video I respect. Sweatband and all. I even fancy one from time to time but not when playing F1, unfortunately. Worst case scenario I lock my hair on an overturned t-shirt. 

Camera settings is one thing I had never dwelt much on. I mean, except the choose your starting pokemon kind of choice between cockpit and TV Pod views. Since those things never have a straight forward answer, what is the general trade off? Better apex visualization on corner entry vs wider field-of-view for improved awareness when defending? There doesn't seem to be a setting that neatly accommodates both things.

Cockpit with halo disabled and rearview mirror activated.

Yup!

For me this is the nice balance between doing it realistic, but at the same time have good control over my surroundings so I'm a safe driver 🙂

Cockpit, although I find whenever I use T-cam, I am faster but I don’t enjoy it as much so I put up with being about 0.5 seconds slower give or take a tenth or two and use cockpit. Used to have halo off when using racing line assist, as it was too hard to see the braking point until it was too late, found myself having to drive slightly off line to see it. Now I don’t use the racing line assist I’ve turned the halo back on.

imo Cockpit or T-cam are valid.   The whole "floating above and behind the car" views need to die off, utter nonsense.  You can't even see the corner apex when using those silly views.

Better peripheral vision than TV-Pod or Cockpit though, which may be useful for some people in Multiplayer 😉
