Not a lot of F1 drivers though. I think Lando was the only active driver in it.
I really enjoyed it and thought the commentary was excellent. Driving standards were poor - especially in the first two laps and some drivers were exceeding track limits - it sometimes seemed faster off the track than on, which presumably is a weakness with the game. I thought it was a good effort which I am sure will get better. There were some excellent battles and close racing as well as clumsy driving. Definitely better than no racing!
I followed the official stream but maybe it is just me but the commentary just didn't work for me. I didn't know any of the presenters so I went in completely neutural. They all came across to me like some YouTube Hipster Streamer which only tried to be funny and it made me really annoyed. The only "normal" person from the 4 was (the first guy to the right of the presenter and to left from the F2 commentator. Sorry I don't know his name. Maybe my expectations were to high since I absolute dig the chemistry between Tom and Jimmy during the GT Sport streams. Also I thought it would have the same spectator quality but all in all I am just disappointed! I'll give the ACC stream a go next sunday and see how that will work out.
Most likely but some allowance may have been made considering some or most may have had to re-acclaimitise to the sim racing experience in the short space of time the events were planned.Does anyone reckon that the forgiving nature of the damage mode selected as mentioned in the article will encourage bad habits in game and on the track?
