Not sure how it should feel? Don't modern F1 cars use power steering?

I'll wait for another free weekend to give 2017 or 2018 a chance I suppose, unless it's really cheap to get somewhere. I'm never sure with Codemasters games. They often made big changes to their sequels om the past, that's for sure but they have not always been for the best.

@Pete, I think they do indeed. But it's also the feeling of the physics, it feels to tame in my opinion. Compared to let's say Automobilista's F1 car model the Codemasters cars almost feel like a boat to me.
But I understand why the F1 games will never go down that route, it's way too difficult for the mainstream audience. Same reason GPL never became really big I think. :)

That gets you 1/8 of Spa these days.

Every now and then i'll try GPL original untouched. It looks so bad it makes my eyes hurt. However, it still drives the same and loads so fast I chuckle every time.

Actually, I don't play it untouched. I can't get the whole thing to play on a modern system. What I do is just install the original tracks and cars untouched and drive it.

I've been called a dinosaur before by guys that went from GPL to other sims. But Pete, you're the T-Rex  of all dinosaurs! :D
