Just seen a clip of Fernando on his race simulator. I would love a wheel like he is using.

I bet he'd love to have a sim like we're using ;)

Thats what i was thinking, just shows what a good deal we get for 50 quid plus a wheel.

Just a shame we don't get paid as much as him. :)

He certainly loves his immersion (He's wearing a helmet!)

The best driver in the world needs the best sim in the world.

Ian, send him a copy. ;)

Very cool! Poor Fernando though. His sim is about the only way he can get a full lap in. I was happy to see him pick up a point this week.

This video confirms, in my view, that hood cam is pretty realistic. Many hardcore people like cockpit view because they say it's more realistic, but imo it's a handicap compared to reality because you don't really notice the interior much when driving in real life. I use a wheel, and that means I'm looking at two wheels if i look down. Not very realistic in my opinion. You get the best realism by doing it like Alonso have it there, a cockpit and hood cam. It's the best compromise. To make it even more realistic, wear a real helmet instead of helmet cam.

Alonso on the sim looks cool, cos he's one of the best in the world at what he does, and this stuff is his job.
I, on the other hand would look and feel like a total dick, so I'll pass on that one :cool:



No disrespect intended to your post, but I believe this to be the truth.
