    Ok, too me this car has always been THE sim car , it slaps me like I'm a red haired stepson at the slightest of mistakes just as the real thing should do , not a car for enthusiast to break lap records but for professional drivers ..(to lap close to real times that is,unlike me ) .Since the latest update I'm not sure if its just a lot of sim kms since I last drove it, if my FFB tweaks are now much better OR if its the update but it seems a lot more manageable , lets say a little more sure footed? Is that all down to the tires or something else, like ,dare I say it Dumed down ?..

    Please don't even insinuate "dumbing down", because we have never done that to any cars.
    If this discussion goes in that direction I'll have to close it.

    Hard doesnt mean realistic.. Thought we learnt that by now.. i always thought this car was too spin happy, and considering all that downforce etc. should be more sure footed.

    Does it make more realistic to you when MadMax Verstappen stated that Marussia MR01 is the most realistic sim car in any sim?

    To me Marussia feels like before but it would be nice if it got tire update and that missing HP (I believe it was about 40hp).

    Considering it was the worst car on the grid at the time (with the HRT) I don't think it's any surprise it's not super quick..

    - Slightly more accurate inertia in unsprung components.
    - Add onboard engine braking maps.
    - Slightly softened chassis flex (in bending and yaw stiffness).
