I was given a copy of F1 2015 a while back and it sounds like you did far less damage than I did. First race, first turn, perfectly lined up on the racing line and I managed to pull a virtual Nick and wiped out all but 2 of the other racers.  redface:
lol: lol: lol:

Imagine the big police chase from Blues Brothers but change the cars to F1 racers  redface:

For some reason I wasn't invited back to try racing online again...  rubschin:

Just been emailled about a bundle offer that includes F1 2018 for 3.99.....................well I suppose I could try and make an even bigger crash rubschin:
:thumbsup:

Turn video capture on so we can all appreciate your efforts

Glad I didn't pick up the bundle now, it's free here for the next couple of days, could always try a VP tournament  :thumbsup:

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

But surely it needs a bundle of cash to be spent on a decent rig

If you are running it on a laptop then I'd recommend getting a cooling stand with built in fans for it.
