    The World on Two Wheels

    One thing that's interesting is Valentino, as shown by him congratulating Hayden and in interviews, really respects Hayden as a rider, and has a much different relationship between Hayden compared to Gibernau and Biaggi.

    Interpreting the Car in Terms of Feel - Real Life versus GT4

    I had a particular question for those who play GT4 and also have specific knowledge of real life racing. To determine how a car will react in GT4, one uses the sounds, sights, and also if you have a wheel, the force feedback gives A LOT of information. In actual racing, what are the most...

    Who do you think will be 2007 World Champion?

    I definitely would not count Alonso out, as he is a driver I highly rate and I think he has the potential to do it. The question is, can he RALLY a team like Schumacher did. Schumacher essentially took the bull by the horns and really controlled how Ferarri did things. Alonso is young still, and...

    Who do you think will be 2007 World Champion?

    This is slightly off topic, but I find it amusing that the Atlas F1 forums, for the high level of activity, is at the moment lacking the level-headedness of reasoning that this post has displayed. Maybe if you don't have an account already there, you should go help bring some reasonable voices...

    Who do you think will be 2007 World Champion?

    FormulaNone, you have some good points. I do believe there's going to be an adjustment period for Alonso, a la Schumacher when he left Benneton. But I definitely not count Alonso out of the championship race, as he is an amazing driver. The Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen inter-team battle...

    Goodbye Michael!

    I will miss Michael racing because the challenge he posed to the other drivers and I'm just used to him being there! I'm not a big fan, being a big Alonso fan, but Michael is indeed one of the greatest talents no matter how you look at it, and whether you agree with some decisions he's made...

    Should "Original" tracks be removed from GT?

    I would like to see a few of the "Classic" GT tracks remain, those that are quite popular with many players, but I do agree that I'd much prefer real life courses. My favorites courses are Laguna Seca, the Nurburgring, Suzuka, and Tsukuba for testing purposes, and I'd like to see more real...

    Formula One Championship Edition (PS3)

    Well, if you plan on buying a PS3, even if it doesn't come out in the US, you can import the UK version because the PS3 is region free for games.

    The effect of NASCAR on America: A School Project

    I'm doing a school project on an American subculture, and considering many on this forum are highly knowledgable about motorsports, I'd like to throw out a few questions that I hope you can grant your insight: 1. How has NASCAR affected the United States at the economical level? Have they...

    TOCA 3. you know. the ps2 version.

    I was just curious, has anyone noticed any differences between the console versions and the PC versions? For example, I know a lot of games for the PC have much better force feedback than the PS2 . . . it's hard to argue that the feel for games like F1 Challenge up to rh2005 and GTR don't have...

    TOCA 3. you know. the ps2 version.

    does anyone have a suggestion for which version to get, PC or PS2. I was leaning towards PC due to my pc having much more power than the PS2, but I'm still not sure!

    Kaido Battle in America!

    As of now it seems as if the date is March 14 for the release, and I have a source that says it is Kaido Battle 1. Please correct me if I'm mistaken, however, because I was hoping for 2 or 3.

    question for real life rally or track driver

    I remember in GT3 it seemed the kerbs actually gave a little extra grip. Kerbs are something I thought GT4 did really well, beacuse I find that they're, to me, always predictable. And so when I get footheavy and try to get on the gas a bit too early after taking a kerb that had sent me...

    question for real life rally or track driver

    My experience lies in karting only so I can only give my feedback comparing the physics to that. I think GT4 allows you to turn and brake into corners with too much brake applied, even with ABS it seems too pronounced. Also, the tactic sensations from the DFP sometimes feel wrong when...

    Super Aguri Honda Racing is Virtually GO!!!!

    I was really disappointed by Sato this year, because he had some brilliant (and some overeager) drives last year, and he was convincing enough to be rated 5th midseason by F1 Racing - I think he has the speed but his main problem is his overtaking abilities. I'd like to see him again in F1.

    F1 DVD Suggestions

    I'm looking for F1 DVDs that contain footage from the earliest filmed races up to the present, ones that contain great actual racing footage rather than documentary form - any suggestions?

    So who's guilty?

    I think, like others have posted, we have seen the first move by the 'rebel teams,' because their indifference to the FIA and the Formula Championships may have given them the courage to commit an act that they otherwise might not do. This situation reeks of the political issues rather than the...
