No offense to our cousins from the tiny Isle in the north, but that engineer drives me mad.

I would love a Scottish engineer or a sweary Aussie. :)

Hahaha, I think he thinks Ben is too polite. He would like to be swear on.
To be honest I think they managed a miracle, stig is talking for Christ sake

I did not know it was him.

Some say he tells you to speed up, even when you just did the fastest lap. And that he drives some aussie Pcars drivers crazy. All we know is he is called the Stig.

He wants you to be better, it's all about your future. Hahaha

Bugger the voice he needs to be usefull, at the moment he is rather usless giving bugger all actual information we need, very sick off " that's a good pace were building a good gap to second" when im 4 laps up in a 6 hour enduro that's pointless. he even says in starting the last lap... hello..... should of recorded more lines we could use.
Tire info , he could report what telemetry is saying about fuel usage, and engine temps to warn us.
another one I hate is " watch out for these two their looking for a place to have a accident" dude there is one car infront of me and looking out for lappers ive been in traffic for 3 hours lol.
Sadly the engineer kills the immersion for me its very repetitive and quite usless, id hate to say it but F12014's is better.. But the idea ( if it can be improved ) of Different voices for different teams/ classes would be cool but pretty please give us information we need with good trigger points to set him off.

If that's Ben Collins shouting "Go, Go, Go" as you leave the pits he sounds a lot like David Cameron

I agree. "You laps time are inconsistent" when you are in traffic. "Push harder" when you have just done a fastest lap.

All a bit frustrating, when as PJ said above, he could be sending you useful accurate information.

It would be cool if they implemented more track specific tips in the future.
I've only heard him say something about the Porsche turns on Le Mans, it would nice to have more of those :)

I have no complaints......

Ex Stig....
From my Home City....

Can't complain!

It would be nice to get him back in the studio to record some more stuff though! Also, in the fan feed thing in career, I had the very lovely looking drMurdock17 telling me I had no chance of winning this year, the very next screen she is telling me I'm on for the win!! Silly girl!! :)

True. But with the ability of turning off subtitles:)

"We're expecting rain in the next 30 minutes".

Erm...it's already raining and has been for quite some time.

I always like him talking me through when to plan an overtake, he takes so long I've nearly always completed it before he's finished:)

Then telling me I've inconsistent times while overtaking 3 cars on the previous lap, lol.

Also "the guys right on your tail" after you've just overtaken him.

I can imagine the heuristics to get this stuff right are very tricky. Once the devs get it dialled in it should give great immersion, but it's not quite there yet. ;)

Why this is wrong? Your laptimes are quite different, this could be great but you are inconsistent.

He used to say a lot more. I thought it was pretty good, but it got toned down to the point of useless.

Would prefer Tiff Neddell's voice..

He's a better driver i think too...

He gets confused about what position I am supposed to be in when he tells me to "push harder". ;)
