The race was a bit disorganised with Lando unable to make qualifying due to tech glitches and supposedly having his car driven by AI for half of the race for the same reason. But it was great to see some real F1 drivers showing some nice moves on a sim game. Gives me some motivation to get practicing on the F1 game on my Xbox!
It would be good to see a few more F1 drivers from different generations in the next online race for Melbourne.
There are some very good racers out there who know how to drive a clean race.What you see as a carnage at start or those stupid crashes were made mostly by real life racers infact.They're new to this thing I think.
It will get better with more practice from them as it takes time to get used to the engine of each simulator.
Btw, too bad it's done with F1-2019.Some of the things you see happening is because of the not very realistic sim engine of this platform.Rfactor offers a way more realistic platform and thus less stupid happening on the track.
