I know they're different racers, but does this handle better than Project Cars? I never could find a setting that worked on that game. This game has my attention. Kind of want to run with Hamilton.

This handles so much better than Project Cars. It's not even close. I've been able to get some decent times even with a controller

Interesting video review of the game from Inside Sim Racing. Covers PC, PS4, X1 If you don't want to watch the entire video you can go to the 26:20 mark and get the recommendations for which platforms the game runs best on. Further back you can see it run on each platform and he gives the good and bad. This guy recommend staying away from the X1 version for now.

Re: F1 2016 Available Today, Post Your Impresssions Here

I had a great Bahrain GP finishing 4th, with my teammate 6th, had a great tire strategy that gave me a good finish, but I minimized the game and that ended up crashing the game, losing the race.

don't think this game has borderless window, which i normally would use.

the differing tire strategies the AI use makes for a good race.

I flipped my strategy to start with the medium tire*+(hardest for the event), lead most of the first stint due to most AI pitting early, I used the clean air to take it easy and made my tires last a long time, then using soft for middle stint and finishing with supersoft with rich fuel mix to finish it out. nearly took 3rd at the end as Riccardo was on Mediums.

hopefully can pull off a similar finish in the redo.

not as good on 2nd attempt.
apparently that crashed messed up the qualifying order. me and Romain qualified 13th and 14th, but after the game crash, we started 21st and 22nd?

I just played it off as a grid penalty.

had a great start, getting most of the position back and getting around where I should have started.

video



similar to before, I started with Medium tires. after 5-6 laps, was by myself cruising in 2nd.
pitted on lap 14, came out in 12th, passed a couple of cars with the fresh tires, then the other pitted again ahead.
lead for a couple of Laps, Rosberg and Vettel came up fast, I just let them go. took my last pit stop at lap 25 to take Supersofts.
luckily the safety car came out right after coming out to bunch up the field, unfortunately, the reason for the safety car was that Romain blew an engine.

video below was the restart and finish.

PC master race...blah blah blah. Got it but what exactly is wrong with X1 version? It doesn't look as pretty as his maxed out PC? He had some problem with a wheel config that seems to be a bug across more than the Xbox platform? I should have known for a video titled "Should You Buy F1 2016 on the PC, PS4 or Xbox One" that talks about nothing platform specific until the last 4 minutes that it would be a worthless review.

Guess I'll just have to wait for DF to give me some real facts on how the game actually performs on the various systems.
