Watch F1 2013's new Estoril track in action on a DBox

If you want a special setup for playing F1 2013 that provides unbridled immersion, this has to be it:  all you need is a high spec PC, a projector screen and a D-box motion rig . Oh, and probably a substantial wad of cash too.

Alan was fortunate enough to put F1 2013 through its paces on this rather swanky setup courtesy of Codemasters. Sit back and enjoy as he takes us for a spin round the new Estoril track which is part of the '90s content that makes up the much publicised classic content in F1 2013 which we had previously seen little of compared to the '80s cars and tracks. 

  

Unsurprisingly, Alan reports that F1 2013 ran super smoothly on the PC, though the same probably can't be said for the ride from the jostling DBox. Let's just hope F1 213 doesn't suffer the same fate as Grid 2 where the game ran impeccably smooth on PC but was a stuttering mess on consoles at times.

Its a shame that they're shutting down but it should mean that Raceroom improves as in my opinion its lagging behind the other main sims (surely this must be the main cause for their bankruptcy?) The game has potential and an acceptable amount of content to buy, however I think the prices for individual cars and tracks is a little steep considering the quality of them compared to Assetto Corsa...

Always feel these sorts of packs are all very,,,meh. But how you can include a Merc in a "Best of British" baffles me, regardless of where it was built.  Surely there are better example of British sportscars from the past that can be used?  Anyway, microtransactions are the way forward and I like DLC but throw in a track or something, no?

...and less shiny graphics. Not everything in real life looks brand new all the time.
