    Oh! God… Great.
    I love PS3. I love F1.

  • I love beer and women 😀

    I liked playing the F1 Games on my Amiga 500 (the Accolode version, not the Geoff Crammond, also maker of the SUPER game Stunt Car Racer!!! Much better than RIIIIIIDGE RACER 😀 )

    I will wait for GT5 (or whatever it’ll be called) for a racing game. I just hope my USB FF Wheel will still work with the PS3, what I dont doubt.

    It’s nice to hear, that they add “surroudings” to the next-gen F1. I always found those pretty boring. Get in the car, win, end… Nothing before (except training and qualification) and the race itself. This will really help to immerse these games into your mind 😀

  • This is quite an impressive interview, and it makes me hunger for this F1 racing game even more. One of the games we play at my place is F1 on the PS2, and it’s a favourite. But it’s a couple years old, so I’m looking forward to an HD PS3 version!

    I love Martial Arts & food! 😆

    It does sound great though & the questions were actually meaningful for a change instead of the usual generic questions that you see in most interviews.
