    yep - i have a logitech momo force, and on first play, i thought the gear changes lagged significantly. i have to say that after playing it a bit more i have not noticed it as much as when i first started.

    I've wondered about that. I've just completed a short weekend race at Australia - practice was full wet and I was able to lap 5-10seconds faster than the next quickest car - as it dried that gap disappeared, even though I was still overtaking cars hand-over-fist on the track.

    Otherwise it's been pretty enjoyable - though I'm annoyed that you don't get told the gaps between drivers during a race - only the difference in lap times. A major oversight.

    Still, I like the cross of the Dirt 2 "paddock" menus with the GRID tips/achievements during loading.

    Yeah, some people tested by following the AI cars around the qualifying laps and the AI qualified a significant amount of seconds faster than the car that was on their tail all the way around.

    Ohhh this game is so frustrating!

    Even though I managed to get into second place with my Lotus and had a perfect 4 second pit stop (as I pitted later than everyone else), I come out on the grid in 21st. What the f*ck?

    Then I pick up another f**king puncture!!!

    3rd time I've restarted this bloody race. :p

    had game yep looked great etc car fine drive. But and a huge but lap times in practice and qualifing are all totally fake and pile of trash. Example out on track with button right behind him whole lap my time puts me down in 15th his time appears suddenly 4secs faster and hes in pole. Totaly ruined it and in race some stuff hapening was like playing a bloody nintendo racer where cars suddenly crah 2secs later they overtake you.

    So much good stuff in game but the lap times etc just ruin game

    One thing that annoys me its a little niggle admitedly is the fact it lets you select Welsh as a nationality, then has a Scottish helmet, English helmet and a British helmet.. yet now Welsh themed helmet.. in a way its like why let me select welsh when im gonna use a generic one.. if you gonna do helmets for countries just do UK as a whole not seperates and miss 2 nations of the uk out.

    I really really suck at Monte Carlo. Ended up qualifying in 4th, behind Webber (Pole) Button & Hamilton (2nd & 3rd) I can get past the two Mclarens, but getting past the Red Bull is somewhat impossible, and when i do, i end up loosing my position in the damn pits, grrrr.

    Noticed that when you take 2nd place, whoever is first seems to hit warp factor 9 in response. Probably some catch-up system having an effect but a seem to have an easier time getting to second from the back than taking 1st from second.

    LOL.
    I managed to get some play time in, and realised again that I am not a natural at Codemaster's games. I dunno why, really. Forza is no issue to me, but in Grid, Dirt and now F1 i have to work for it.
    So for me, it's been practise, practise, practise. about 100 laps done on sakhir now, and the times are starting to become better.

    Oh, now it's released. And yesterday i decided to DNF Monte Carlo because i went into the pits first, and ended up being released last. My position went from 2nd on the grid, to 24th

    Got my own back on it today, finishing the Turkish Grand Prix 1st, with a lead over 30 seconds, and lapping 4 other cars in the process. Montreal next...
