That’s kool how the wheels are lined up with the formula car it looks real

yeah ok it looks like Nico with a dark helmet from behind in a dimly lit room lol ? who the fuck ?? .
anyway, cool simulator and i think Nico is underated as a driver, if he had a better car you would see many more clips of him he is very good.

In a few yrs yours at home from the R Factor team!! Maybe RFactor 3???? Who knows…

@lemon2551 what do you know about these things….
By lemon2551, November 15, 2010 @ 11:21 am
Redbull F1 simlulator is better

@KKINGvsALL I wanna see you drive it…
By james0908, November 15, 2010 @ 12:52 pm
shame he didnt practise pit lane exits.

@sarahmichael270244 Probably partially to do with comfort, but I believe mostly for grip on the steering wheel.
By sarahmichael270244, November 15, 2010 @ 2:19 pm
Why does he wear gloves in the simulator?

@SuperColossal33 Well, checkout this article from R1 Racing mag: tinyurl (dot) com (slash) 35nv8ux
It’s the same system than in that article. It’s driver training system not a setup tool.
I noticed the oddly easy looking steering too, and if they’re using the same tracks with no added laser scanning than all rFactor or Race07 players are using, then it is a bit funny.
By SuperColossal33, November 15, 2010 @ 3:21 pm
from what I can this is just the video game release of rfactor, not the expensive training one, and it doesn’t model bumps in the track or hitting curbs…
F1 teams don’t even share tire pressures, they would confiscate all video replays of their laps if they could…Williams was the only team public about their sim for publicity reasons, red bull can afford to make one like this
and you can just tell, watch when cranking on the wheel, it doesnt fight our bounce back like the one in this video

@SuperColossal33 What makes you think so?
By SuperColossal33, November 15, 2010 @ 4:45 pm
@deggis4 that’s Red Bull’s PR sim, their real one is private.
By deggis4, November 15, 2010 @ 5:02 pm
Now that Red Bull has revealed (which turned out to be rFactor Pro!) their sim rig, it doesnt really look so much different to this one. I’d like to see a sneak preview of McLaren’s sim.

@Mongoose1358 afaik the Simulations like rFactor Pro e.g. are pretty accurate. Of course they can’t simulate the G forces and I guess that’s what makes driving F1 cars that hard. The pure physics of driving isn’t that difficult I think if you have the data. And the steering looks smooth in a real car, too. It has to because otherwise he wouldn’t drive that fast. It’s not 1:1 like real life but the driving for itself is pretty good I think.
By Mongoose1358, November 15, 2010 @ 5:49 pm
@Killerkarpfen1990 what i mean is that the simulation probably doesn’t handle like in real life, as the steering looks way too smooth.. Unless he is just driving casually
By Killerkarpfen1990, November 15, 2010 @ 6:10 pm
@Mongoose1358 So what? Even rFactor can simulate understeer very well…
By Mongoose1358, November 15, 2010 @ 6:40 pm
about all this “understeer” talk.. it’s bullshit because this is just a simulator, nothing like driving in real life. Also this sim is the same standard as computer games like rfactor, so not very advanced
By riflebore, November 15, 2010 @ 7:03 pm
You can see Nico Rosberg understeer considerably alot on the following:
0:08, 0:22, 0:45 (although this one, he missed the apex, caused by missing the braking point.),
1:02 is an example of OVERSTEER as he exits the corner and with the accelerator ON. Although it may have also been induced by the chicane caused by a sudden left-right weight transfer.
By riflebore, November 15, 2010 @ 7:04 pm
There are two tendencies for a car (F1) to oversteer. With the accelerator OFF and as the car ENTERS the corner, as the car SLOWS down the vehicle’s weight transfers heavily to the front and lightens the rear CAUSING the oversteer, this is usually a mild one and there’s still considerable grip. The other one is oversteer with the accelerator ON, as the car EXITS the corner and the all the vehicle’s weight moves to the back. This usually gives too much wheel spin and is not a desirable method.
By riflebore, November 15, 2010 @ 7:35 pm
Call me a retard if i get this wrong. I see Nico more as an understeer driver. He enters the corner with accelerator off. He steers and the car slides a bit forward. If the car oversteers with the accelerator OFF, then he’s an oversteer driver – BUT based on this video, he isn’t. He did oversteer on a few corners, but he was ON the accelerator when that happened. Therefore that’s more of a power induced oversteer ON EXIT. Lewis Hamilton is an example of an oversteer driver.
