    On PC.

    I have my doubts as to how much of the graphical improvements will come to console, but I'll be very happy to have my doubts quashed.

    I have 2017 on both PS4 Pro and Mac (yes, it was released for Mac and Linux via Feral Interactive who did the port), and the Mac version does look a good bit better overall, although it's plagued by very very occasional sudden video freezes lasting 1 to 2 seconds, which will end your race.

    That said I'm way more interested that the framerate keeps at a solid 60 fps than I am over the eye candy.

    I also pre-ordered it, but on the day of release I will be at the Spa-Francorchamps track, trying to get rid of a hangover :)

    Oooohh, the noise those engines make aren't going to help with that ;).

    Are you there for the entire weekend?

    Yes from Thursday later afternoon, until Sunday.

    The F1 nowadays are quite good for the ears. The Porsche super cup is louder.
