PC videos of F1 2016 preview version

F1 2016 will be released on PC and consoles on august 19th, we could get to try the preview version on PC so here are some videos from the Baku circuit showing new features such as the formation lap, manual start and the return of the safety car.

Note: steering can seem abrupt and late or missed gear shifts, this is due to a bug in this version sometimes delaying the steering wheel controls.

I'm a big F1 fan, but this does not get me really excited.. I'm not really feeling the graphical style and the AI still looks a bit poor with the cars driving to much like trainwagons on rails.. But overal not a bad effort I guess..

Not impressed by the graphics since this is the PC version. It looks like there is a sharpening filter.

F1 2015 was good looking and I was expecting more improvements this surprising looks underwhelming. Not sure what happened here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6Eu2G0rHz4

Yeah, graphics are just bad all things considered.

    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (3 Hours ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (16 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (19 Hours ago)
