Rumblings that the next round of EU sanctions against Russia could include sporting events. :munchies:

Based on the F1 2014 preview of the track it looks a pretty sweet one and finally one with a long start straight!

If they try putting sanctions on it I am sure it will spur UN peace envoy Bernie into action, he will sort it out. When he is finished Putin will be wondering what to do with his new spam factory in Slough and why he had to pay 9.4 billion for it.

Thanks for the link!! I haven't picked up a new F1 game since 2011 came out mainly because $$ and time (when I do play I go on like a six hour binge so it kills my day :hehe: ) but I do love the games and the fact that this isn't the first time we've had the opportunity to race a track in the game that hasn't been raced yet in real life!
Not bad for a #2 driver

It's available on steam to test/try as some kind of beta/preview version because they really want to get people to buy the 2014 version (probably going to be their worst selling version to date) because it's pretty much identical to 2013 with a bit more torque, less grip and just a livery change. All of which can be changed or added easily, I can do it all myself the only thing I can't do is add/create the new track.

Buying 2014 is literally like buying a fascia for a phone...

2015 however will have a new graphics engine which should hopefully bring better graphics, better performance, better AI and better physics

Breaking News: Lewis Hamilton has officially overtaken The Fonz in race wins. With 88 races less. Lol (Without a specially built blown diffuser, illegal front wing, preferential treatment)

I was wrong. But I was close to bring right. One more downed commercial airliner is all.

Just leading by example (for some) :hehe:

However, I will not technically be wrong until Sunday. Putin still has a couple of days to screw it up. :twisted:
