    I have to agree in regards to F1. It has become irrelevant. I stopped following it somewhere around 2003.

    It's always been a bit of a predicatable procession, even in the late 90' and early 2000's, but at least then there were drivers with personalities who would speak their minds. These days they all seem to stick to the same pre-sterilized scripts.

    Makes it hard to find a driver to root for and therefore really eliminates the main draw to the sport. Add to that the current state of the cars/rules and well...... it just makes for a sport that is on life support.....

    SportsCar racing (WEC, IMSA, Blancpain, PWC, etc.) seems to be where it is at right now for pure racing and excitement. DTM is also right up there. All are far more interesting than F1.

    F1 will be even more of a joke next year when its stops being proper open wheel racing, the halo looks aweful!

    i dont see why they cant go with a fighter-jet style canopy, like on the Caparo T1. Keeps the look of open cockpit but protects the driver, and wont impair vision like a vertical bar in the middle of the car

    It's one particular car i really like in this pack and that's the Austin Martin Vantage GT12. It's so wonderful to drive, the handling is perfect and i must say that i think it's the best sounding car inside cockpit in the game. SMS did a really good job with the engine-sound changing through the whole range as well as when deaccelerating you can hear pops from the exhaust and the engines mechanical sounds. Thumbs up SMS

    There's alot of cars I really like but don't drive because in the steering wheel is not in the center of the view in cockpit view. It's amplified with my triple screen setup. I just can't drive when I have to reach over to the left to hold grab the wheel. I believe the Mertek is one of them but there are at least three or four I can remember that are this way. Just wasted cars when they are that way. It's a shame too because otherwise they are all awesome and I would have loved to compete with them. The pCars people just wont fix them even though they've been told repeatedly. Sad stuff!!!!

    Played with the new content for the first time this weekend. Absolutely LOVE the Corvette!
    The sound, the twitchy back end, great fun to drive. I now have a new favourite GT3 car (sorry RUF!)
    Worth the £3 just for the 'vette.

    I'm not sure what's happening with those cars you mentioned, but isn't it solvable with the Ctrl+K combo?
    You move the camera to a position where the wheel is in the center of the view and you're good to go.

    yes, but one hast to do this everytime the car is loaded, because those changed viewpoint-settings seem not to be saved at all

    This really bothers me, one of the things I would like most would be that the camera position saved for each car. I've had to sacrifice the whole dpad on my xbox controller to make sure that I get the position I want for each car everytime I use it. Most cars defaults are fine but some (Renault RS-01 can't see right side mirror, Sierra Cosworth feels way too close and high for my liking) don't feel right. I'd much rather be able to save the camera position and free up those four buttons for brake bias/anti roll bar adjustments etc
