Yeah, didn't they say the safety car would NOT be in the game?

I bought F1 2010 late in the cycle, only about maybe 2 months ago, I'm not a big F1 follower, but the game looked too good to pass up, and I like racing games. I was blown away by it. I'll definitely get 2011 again, not on release because there are too many other games I'm picking up around that time, but I wont wait as long this time. It looks fantastic again. Love the visuals, especially the weather system, the courses. I wish I could have more control over race distances in season/career mode though. Sometimes I just don't have the time to run races that long. Especially when having to factor in practice time, qualifying, then the races themselves. Those days/nights when I do have the time it pays off, but I feel like if I could shorten them up a bit more, I'd have many more opportunities to play. The game looks fantastic again though this year and sounds like they've made some great improvements.
