I have a G27 wheel, I've only used w/ F1 2010 since I just got both of them and I love the wheel. The quality is nice, the steering wheel feels great, so does the shifter. I havent had extended experience on its full potential since my current set up isnt ideal, once I get a good stand, I think it will be even better. The pedals need to be adjusted, since the brake is a lil too far from the gas pedal, so heel-toe isnt easy to do. Ive read you can adjust them, just havent looked it up yet.

The force feedback is insane, you can feel every bump, and you get to adjust it in the game settings.

I also need to figure out how to map all the buttons, if possible, since I dont like the layout of the wheel buttons. The d-pad and buttons on the shifter are perfect though. I'm pretty sure you can change it in the game setting but like I said my experience is limited.

I'm most likely going w/ this stand

lots of good reviews and I like how everything packs down for easy storage

How are you guys starting out with BMW sauber and Force India? It only let me choose between HRT, Lotus, and Virgin...

Yeah, I don't know. I had Virgin, Toro Rosso, HRT and Lotus.

Anyways, I am playing with Intermediate AI, and I finished first at Bahrain...? Don't have any help aside from low traction control and ABS...

what difficulty level are you starting with? maybe it differs based on that?

Anyways, the teams seem to make a difference (which I like)...after finishing mid-field with team bmw, I tried out williams and got on the podium!

And how long of a career did you choose?
7 year limits you to the back-markers. 5 adds Sauber and Toro Rosso, and 3 adds Force India and Williams I believe.

Thats my only complaint as well its seems a lil too easy to get fast times, although over taking can be a lil challenging at times. Where did you set the AI? I havent seen that setting, maybe its part of my problem

Oh its starting to make sense now. I chose a 7 year career so i guess that is why it only let me choose between the three teams. I am on Intermediate level, and at first it was hard for me, but once the car started getting upgrades from R&D sessions I felt a difference and started doing better. It could have just been me getting used to the game though...

With as much pre-sale, marketing, and everything else they've been putting out - They finally got their s#it together this time it seems.

Don't get the G27 - get the fanatec wheels - they work with all systems, xbox,ps3,pc and the pedals are to die for - the upper ones come w/ vibration!

same here...that entire track is so much fun up to that one point. it sucks cause if you attack the chicane, you get penalized for "cutting a corner" and if you try to ride the curbs while you bomb through the chicane, you spin out - absolutely no chance of saving it.

i'm hoping my new wheel will help with attacking/riding curbs
