    I was quite surprised why (only) this car is not simulated very well on GTS while the games is a perfect simulation. I don't believe the real car's behaviour is like on the game; before or after update.

    The W08 requires very light throttle application thru slow speed corners to stabilize and plant the rearend ot the car. Even Gr3&4 cars tend to like that.

    Sorry for the lack of details on my post. But I was talking about the moment when you lift off the throttle completely and then make a turn.

    Then again I know the answer.
    Btw thanks :):tup:.

    I agree with those saying that the W08 EQ Power+ is still too unstable through slow speed corners. Anything below 4th is a risk but you can stabilise the loose rear end by applying a little throttle. This could be improved further in v1.25.

    It is significantly better than it was and I am really enjoying driving it. Once you learn some of it's habits you can really push and rely on the downforce. Performance is absolutely incredible. Great fun.

    A night lap of Nürburgring Nordschleife is on the cards for me too.

    Yeah the corner cutting is finally forbidden. You do get penalty as standard. How he managed to not get one I don't know.

    I think it’s the stock diff setting to be honest, I’ll try to play with it and see. When 7 out of 20 AI cars are spinning at both hairpins you know there’s an issue

    Plus I still don't understand why the song of the first two trailers isn't in the game and why you can't choose some of the songs in the race for the menu (Run Boy Run for example).

    Having now tried it with a wheel, I need to add to this. The wheel makes a world of difference! Whereas the car is undrivable with a normal controller, it's fine with a wheel. The problem seems to be that the response of the controller is just way too slow (with sensitivity at 7), making it impossible to catch oversteer before completely spinning out. The controller also suffers from poor speed sensitive steering, where you have to slow down way more than necessary to make a fast turn.

    Also we really should be able to manually operate DRS. The game should just have like 2 assignable buttons for special car features, such as DRS and KERS, and the lights on a safety car. That would be much more useful than the indicator lights.
