Conclusion: I have F1 2010 and just got F1 2011 from somewhere cheaper. The gameplay is a lot smoother than before. The updates are KERRS, DRS, Drivers and Track. This is a must for all F1 fans and you wont be disappointed.
Conclusion: I recently purchased this game (May 2012) for a tenner and at that price you can't go wrong. Some people seem to be put off by slow loading times, but i think that may be down to the impatience of youth or a lower end PC lol.
Conclusion: Agree graphics are great, time for loading is slow, but my biggest gripe is that I too find it impossible to control and keep on the track. So far, the best time I have managed is about 34 seconds behind the 23rd ranked car!
Conclusion: The game is brilliant. Lots of improvement compare to f1 2010. Graphic is amazing, plus kers and DRS. Very playable. On maximum graphic settings on core i7 Q840, Nvidia GTX 460M sli and 8GB RAM I'v got average 45 FPS on benchmark witch is pretty much the same as F1 2010 (49 FPS) Thanks Codemasters...
Much anticipated game turns out to be a big disappointment

Conclusion: The last time i bought an F1 game was F1 '97 for the Playstation, and what a fine game it was graphically as well as gameplay. Even today i reckon apart from the graphics looking ropey the gameplay is still good. Not so for F1 2011 on the PC. It looks and feels like a console game port.
Conclusion: If you have used the game GP4 this drives very much like that, the graphics are similar. Only a bit better on the track but a lot better on cars and people. The graphics have a crisp clear bright feeling to them, happily nothing like the smeary misty over exposed look of Grid.
