If anyone wants 50% off of Motorsport Manager on Steam, I've got a voucher that expires on the 3/3 for it. I've had fun with it, so would recommend

Doubt my computer could run it in all honesty, it's good for day to day stuff and old games via steam but I really don't know how it would cope with something more modern, from what I recall it's got a 2 Ghz AMD quad core CPU (A8 I think) and a 1GB graphics card that I can't quite recall the exact model of, cost like £250 in early 2015. I've heard it's meant to be a pretty good game though but unless the required specs are really low I'll leave it for someone else to grab.

OS: Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit)
Processor: Intel Core i5-3470, 3.20GHz or AMD FX-6300, 3.5Ghz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 660, 2 GB or AMD Radeon HD 7870, 2GB or Intel HD 500 series.
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 16 GB available space

Yeah, these are Steam's recommend specs so I doubt it would work. I mean it has a 2D mode in it that might work, but it isn't quite the same and you may as well go for the more limited mobile version then

An Italian F1 fan uploaded the footage he took on that fateful weekend.

What do you think of it? I've enjoyed it personally, although it isn't as deep as Football Manager but for a first proper attempt it's pretty decent even if there are a few annoying things that happen. Though I'm glad it now has Steam workshop support, as there are some real name mods out there

The season seems an awful lot closer to to starting now I've seen this has just been released,

http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/revea ... ar-874302/

First images of Williams F1 car for 2017 obviously just a computer model so may not be exactly 100% accurate but it does look very nice, hope the rest of the grid looks just as nice.

If that's accurate, then i'm disappointed in their continuing use of that ugly nose cone design.

Time will tell, the FW40 is officially being announced on the 25th of February, this could well be an older spec of the car from earlier in production, some of the more knowledgeable people on Twitter and the like have said it looks quite under-developed in areas, around the front suspension, the side pods etc.

Looks good from the rear though! (sorry for the large pic)

Had this one on the backburner for a little while as the initial upload a week ago was blocked by FOM in all countries, this meant a few edits had to be made and i ended up having to use lower resolution clips on some choices too.

Hope you like anyhow.

Some very good overtakes in there, still remember being amazed by that one in Spa 2011, Webber on Alonso.

I had a far better clip of that move, but sadly that was one of the clips which led to the first version of the video getting blocked. :(

Still, that's just an occupational hazard youtubers have to deal with when uploading F1 fan videos. :lol:

Really is a shame, with how many millions of views various YouTube clips get each day you'd have thought they'd want good quality clips being uploaded, to try and get more people watching them. Hopefully this is another aspect the new owners will change, actually try and increase their appeal on YouTube by letting people like yourself upload clips.

Yeah, the new owners do seem to want to encourage more internet based stuff surrounding F1, so hopefully they might ease up on youtube a bit (why don't they just monetise and place a few ads on F1 fan vids instead of blocking them outright? That's what a lot of musicians do, and even the owners of Downfall do that when folks upload hitler parody clips).

Whoa, they actually made an effort with the livery this time around. :shock:

Nice looking car, would have been perfect had it not been for the crappy nose stump.

That looks very nice, livery and the actual car as well. The shark fin on the engine cover has made a return as well, they seemed to have a rework of the cooling from the looks of the increase in cooling over the drivers head and smaller side-pod entry holes.

Really looking forward to seeing the rest of the cars.

Hopefully the car isn't back of the grid as Sauber have been recently, because that livery is way too good. Might already be one of the best modern F1 liveries.

At any rate I'm just glad that the ugly short rear wings are finally gone from F1 cars.

Interesting new look for Sauber you can almost imagine it being sponsored by Rothmans if tobacco company's could still advertise on cars just like the Williams back in the day

Spoilered for huge pic but I always thought the Williams FW33 (2011) looked like it modelled its livery on the old Rothmans livery.
