Re: F1 2016 Available Today, Post Your Impresssions Here

Having an absolute blast with this. Haven't played and F1 game in years. This one will keep me very happy for a long time.

Is there a way to exit and save your progress in a session, say like halfway thru practice? I couldn't find a way but I figure you all have played these much more than I have.

Gamefly sent my copy yesterday, so hopefully I get it tomorrow, if not then I'll have to wait till Monday. Was hoping to get some PT in before Madden, but I can't be too picky. I had to manipulate my Gamefly Q to make sure I got this instead of some other random game.

Today's laugh:

Downloaded it on Steam, set up my steering wheel and got my drink. Started the game................PC CRASH! Looked at the requirements and my video cards were not supported.

Ordered and waiting for the latest video card. Drank my beer and stared at the computer wondering what could have been.

I've never bought an F1 game and haven't even played a racing game of any kind in several years, but I just picked this up on a spur-of-the-moment decision! Haha. I've been following the news since it was announced, and after reading a few positive reviews, I took the plunge. I can't wait to get into it later this evening and into the weekend!

Got the game downloaded, got the graphic settings set up, got my wheel set up and was going to configure it after dinner and do some practice races to get used to the game, then the power went out due to the storms.

Anyone know if they're going to add classic tracks in a DLC? I live 30 minutes north of Watkins Glen and it would be sweet if we could race on it. F1 stopped racing there in the 80's, no idea why, but they did. Would be nice to get other blasts from the past as well.

ran first race of Career as 2nd Haas driver.
Qualified 17th, Romain 13th, but we both got extremely lucky in the race.
we both were on a 1-stop strategy, I was doing a 50% race(29 laps), Expert AI. This strategy, thanks to a safety car that happen right after we both pitted, allowed us to both contend for the win.

Perez was also on the same strategy. he lead for a while, but Hamilton who was on SS tires, chase us down and blew past us both. I mean, he passed us and won by 19 seconds in 5 laps.

me, Perez, and Romain battled it out for 2nd, ended up with me and Romain both hanging on to podium spots.

Hass 2-3 in first race, and current constructor point leader.

now it obviuosly wont stay that way. we were 10-12 place cars in pace.
