    Well, with a pad you can't steer or use the pedals as accurately, so you are definitely at a disadvantage. By how much will depend mostly on the car and to a lesser degree on the track. The Formula A require much more precise inputs than a GT3 car for example. Overall my guesstimate is that the difference between two people of equal skill level, one playing with a gamepad the other with a wheel, would be around 1-3 seconds.

    I did have wheelstand pro and Fanatec and g25 wheels but due to space had to sell, was looking at the simracer controller but there is no ff, so I'll have to stick to the pad.
    I just got a 1.20.5 with the formula A at the Catalunya GP track, 25th I think, so not doing bad, but yes for this game your estimations are probably right, I'm losing a lot of time at the first long chicane there, not tried Brands Hatch SMS-R yet.

    I agree about the steering but, at least from my experience when testing with the gamepad, I don't see a disadvantage in regards to braking and accelerating with the triggers. Steering precision imho is the main point.
