This game is not for the faint of heart!!!! Its probably one of the hardest racing games you will ever play, but it is very realistic. Tune your car and give it your best shot. All the tracks look very good and its cool that the game makes you feel like your really racing for a team. You have to talk to the press and tell the people how you feel. Your pit boss talks to you and tells you when things go wrong. The graphics are very good. Its no forza 3 but still very nice. You can race the races on a few different lap settings including the full real life race which would take forever and a day. Especially if you really want to win. On average on a race day thats 15 laps or so it takes me about 3 hours. Why?? Cause I want to get pole position and if you mess up once your screwed, and if you go off the track the lap doesnt count. The online isnt that great but thats because there is no one on it. I picked the game up not being a fan of F1 racing at all and had a blast!! But if your not really in to racing games or you just play arcade type games like "Need For Speed" you will not like this game.

Formula 1 is an intensely hard racing sport; to attempt to make a game is admirable. This game's physics and visuals are simply impressive, even if they can't be exact to what is seen when a car traveling at 200 MPH hits a wall. The story-mode experience is a good start, but could use some simple improvements, of buffs around the edges to simulate reality. I'm glad i picked this game out, and I hope that 2011 keeps the Codemasters game engine and improves on it. Worth renting if you love a racing challenge.
