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! I also have managed to receive 3 x 10 place penalties on the grid for blocking when I was spinning round and trying to get back on the track during practice. Will persist as looks as if it should be good.
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. Sure the graphics aren't too bad, but the game play is frustrating from the off. Firstly the game takes minutes to load after you have logged into Windows live.
