    Race Number and Helmet Selection

    Even if the helmets are just standard ones that are currently in the game... We need some continuity/connection with our racer! Plus, the race numbers.. WTF! At least put them on the cars.

    Thanks xxx

    I'm not sure if you'll see customization helmets but I really doubt you'll see the race numbers one. It will mean that another layer will be added to the car's skin and this will obviously take more memory to render it which as you can imagine is hard to come by on the consoles.

    I hope this helps.

    Then they should remove the race number option, surely?! Thanks

    I'm not a 100% sure what that number is for, I haven't played much of the career yet. Maybe someone who has had more career experience can explain where the number is used.

    I don't care as much about the numbers, but surely it should be possible to assign a specific helmet skin to your player model, at least for career mode (and overalls, which only change when you sign a new contract).

    I've raced around 10 seasons, so far it's not had any use in my career. Considering how important a race number and helmet style is to a racing driver; it doesn't 'sim' the career very well. Even Codemasters' F1 allows you to choose a helmet.
