Unlike PC1 in 2 you can play the keyboard?

I mean, no idea but I guess so.... my question is why would you want to?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna say "Buy a wheel, it's the only way!", but a controller would serve you better perhaps...

Okay, I won't buy wheel because it's too expensive. I have yet gamepad. Maybe is better than keyboard

It would be much much better

Yep, something like an old Xbox 360 controller does well.. basically any gamepad with analogue sticks should be fine (and you shouldn't need to spend much if any time messing with settings to get it working nicely)

KB & mouse is great for fps & rpgs but I never considered playing racing games with a keyboard, Xbox 360 controller works fine for me though.

Keyboard is pretty basic and you only uses this one to control a vehicle that is easy to handle. If you're wanted to drive 1980's F1 car with a keyboard, just forget it. Pretty hard to control the gas pedal without an adjustable trigger button.

No matter how fancy the keyboard is including some of fancy mechanical ones, certain cars will make driving with keyboard is going utterly suck.

Besides selecting an older very fast car with no driving aids available, it should be quite manageable on keyboard. But if you want to drive to the limit (which is kind of the goal), a controller like the Xbox ones is better because you can carefully modulate how much you press the accelerator and brake, which for example is very important on snow in a V8 Supercar. :)

Not in my opinion but that's just my opinion, but in PC 1 you can use a keyboard @ mouse !!
