Very interesting stuff.  Although, this bit...

Quote
"If Hamilton is driving behind you he can't see you [in the game], so he would drive right through you," explained Mr Lurling.

"So the AI takes over at that point and you see a very realistic overtaking."


...highlights a big problem with the idea.  In close racing, it'd just be the AI driving.  Might work better for ghost laps rather than competitive racing.

Also, the idea of using SatNav is worrying...  "At the pit exit, drive into the wall.  Then, you have reached your destination."

 lol

sounds very complicated and not very fair for eg

The system also handles the results of in-game collisions between real and virtual drivers.

In this case, the real car always drives away. The gamer's fate is less certain.

 where is the fun in that lol surely the "AI" can sort this out so both drivers always drives away

I would like to try.  I just realized my last post made no sense.  I'm not worried about getting passed because I'm crazy... slow.

You could teach Elwis a lesson or two on how clean fast racing should be  phwoar

Then you could go  :bored: it was going to be an easy win all the way from start.


I know it was uncalled for, but I could not let the oportunity be left alone. rotfl

haha, Lewis meet T hez.. you will only see him once you finish the race and your on your slow down lap, as he usually stops at corner 2.. then you can meet up and shake hands and congratulate him on beating you by 30seconds.

Grinn..brits and full of hamilton... yet no word on your other  drivers... Button, DC.. well.. scotsman then.. but still britt..
It's great he made it this far, dont get me wrong, but i hate it when drivers get into too frikin many posts in the forum. just means something is wrong..
Hamilton might be my new reason to disengage from F1 again, last one was Schumacher.. who bored the hell outtof me.. guess hamilton can do the same.. hope he wins a couple of championships to prove his points, then sod off and let the others have a go for it... top 4-8 has my interest mostly.

and if you were dutch you'd still be cheering at Jos Verstappen... as he disappeared from the F1 Scene and also A1 in a damned hurry.. the boys is fast too, he just cant keep a car in one piece as he's pushing too damn hard!

Good luck at Le Mans Boss...

Well, what's the difference between you (as dutchmen) cheering for Jos Verstappen and the Brits for Hamilton  :innocent:

nah.. i've only once cheered for Jos Verstappen's racing.. that was when he roared by at Spa.. for the rest...


i think i applauded most at his spectacular crashes.

I've always had other country's drivers as Favorites actually.. Started off with Prost, then Mika, Now i guess Kimi.. or Cubica.. dont know.. DC has always been a good shotgun for a teamm8 i recon, yet i've never seen his massive Jawline to help him with the downforce.
