Hopes the online racing sees grid like ghost servers with no crash and bash poon winners and its all then about speed not who has the cleanest lap and has a new mini-game of Mark Webber on a mountain bike where your aim is not to frikkin fall off it lol.

I still love F1 2010. It is a great F1 game however there are a lot of lessons Codies need to learn in order to make F1 2011 a hugely successful title. There were (and still are) some key bugs in F1 2010 which have gone unchecked and for the more hardcore F1 fan, spoiled the experience.

Codemasters' response to a lot of the issues were met with criticism by the many members. Ongoing support for F1 2011 would be a start. Instead of one patch for F1 2010 which fixed a few of the issues, but created new problems such as weakened force feedback/ rumble, pit exit bugs, tyre bugs and unfair penalties etc...

So with F1 2010 we were told "that's it" but at least they made note to address all existing issues with F1 2011.

Online is another matter entirely. I read that Shift Unleashed will introduce a type of grading system online whereby players are matched up according to thier actions and performance on track; ie: Rammers are matched with other people who tend to intentionally ram, or others who like to go the wrong way or block the track etc... The inconsistant and mostly innaccurate penalty system is probably the most frustrating aspect online though. That definitely needs an overhaul.

Codemasters may do well to try something similar but the unfortunate inevitability is that they probably won't. Players will continue to ram and ruin races and serious players will suffer through many spoiled laps to find decent lobbies.

The second time around for Codemasters could be a pole position lap. let's hope they don't suffer a puncture this season and get left flailing around mid - pack...
