    If this is an F1 Marussia (and it does appear so!) its quite an achievement for ISI given the F1 licensing conditions etc and whilst I am more of an historics fan myself, I appreciate this is a huge addition for many!

    I look forward to more news and eventually a drive :D Nice little coup, gratz Tim

    If it is Marussia, KERS won't be realized?

    Probably (just) either side of that window. I have an option for a 1994, but feel a 1991 might be more of the raw car. If I did a 1994, I would probably want to do it before the regulations changed in 1994... If that makes sense. So I figured the 1991 option I have works better.

    In any case, we did announce in the past we have options and licenses from every decade of F1. I'm hoping that means most evolutionary steps will be featured, but right now the post-Senna regulation period (94-04) is missing from the selection.

    There's going to be a great choice of open wheel formula cars to choose from , bet one of them will really become a favourite !

    That all sounds pretty good for F1 Fans. Hopefully Fans of other Motorsport-Categories get their stuff, too. For me it is Prototype and GT Racing. That would be nice.
    But maybe i have to accept that F1 is the most important Raceseries with the biggest Fanbase.

    NONE of the other F1 cars mentioned will be released any time soon.

    Also, the content is released when released, there's no pattern, it just happens when it happens. I'm absolutely sure next year the F1 fans will be complaining about all the GT cars...

    Don't worry, this should work out in ISI's favor. When people complain that the car handles like crap (we all know SOMEONE will), ISI will truthfully be able to say: "That's how the real car is too!"

    1991? Yes please :p

    [​IMG]

    The looks and liveries of that era were iconic! They sounded great too, the Williams Renault v10 vs the McLaren Honda mp4/6 V12! :cool:
    All the other cars were also great in their own way (e.g. ferrari and tyrell). Very clean/pure and raw beasts under the hood.
    Great news to hear there will be a time we can race (one of) them in rF2!
    btw please wait a while with the release, I won't have a life after that moment. I need time to prepare.

    As some sort of adjustment period, only release the engine first! :D
    I'll be spending hours just watching it and 'driving' it like this guy!

    I like the older GTP cars the best as I think they looked the coolest.

    Most of the historic stuff will have to wait a bit, but hopefully you should be happy.

    could be nice :) I was thinking of the Jordan immediatly, the car of Michael Schumachers debut (note: I'm not a schumi fan, I'm more on the hamilton side, and vettel too since I met him :D ). I find that one of the most beautifull cars I've ever seen in F1 :cool:
