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.
