Auto or manual gear for controller users

Recommended Posts

I use an Xbox one controller on PC and use automatic gears. I have raced a few times with manual gears and done reasonably well but find I'll need to remap the controller buttons in order for it to feel comfortable.

I'm currently between a rock and a hard place regarding gear choice. I've been playing F1 game for about 5 months and have predominantly used auto and 'dabbled' with trying manual a few times. Usually lasts a week then I'm back on automatic. I've even tried a hybrid kind of gearing where I choose automatic gears and drive mainly auto but still have the option to change gear manually on occasions like downshifting an extra gear on some corners or short shifting up for extra traction. It kind of works......apart that doing this hybrid technique means that knowing what gear I'm in by counting up or down shifts is difficult.
