F1 2014 Trailer

This new trailer from F1 2014 offers a look at a hot lap in Bahrain, where it never gets all that cold. They say this first hot lap video from the next installment in the Formula One racing series is the first chance to hear the new character of the engines in this year's cars. Word is: "The 2014 FORMULA 1 GULF AIR BAHRAIN GRAND PRIX was run as a night race for the first time this year, and the hot lap video shows Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari taking on the 15 corner, 10 year-old Bahrain International Circuit dramatically lit up by hundreds of floodlights and against a striking backdrop of fireworks"

Actually the new Grid Autosport is a pretty good racing game for people new to racing games.
I don't feel the controls are as twitchy as previous Grid or Dirt games and it eases you into the racing as opposed to throw you in the thick of things like a proper sim.
I agree; I am having lots of fun with GRID Autosport. Here's my video review of it.

I agree with Rigs though F1 is not really a new player friendly game however with the latest iterations they've added so much assists that it is not so difficult to get into the game. It still can be frustrating for new players though.
Takes tons of practice to nail those apexes and at the right speed. Practice practice practice!

The F1 series is actually pretty good for what it is. I think people play GRID or DIRT or some of the rally games/sims, or even iRacing and then come to the F1 series and use them to compare to F1 and it's not really a fair comparison. F1 is somewhat unique, I feel. I don't know, maybe it's me, I've just felt that the F1 series just did it's own thing in the genre and I was ok with that. I've never had problems with it and each year they bring something new with the always mandatory graphical upgrade.

For first time racers or casual, I don't think an open-wheel sim is the best 'learning' experience. Open wheel takes a lot of practice to avoid nearly all contact with your opponents, unlike games like GRID and GSC, or even NFS. Speaking of NFS, that might be a good 'gateway' sim for him to play until he gets better and grows out of the arcade-ish handling. You could run NFS Hot Pursuit and Rivals and then go to the SHIFT series for a little more realism. From there he could 'graduate' to GSC, Race07, rFactor, GRID, and then eventually to the F1 series and, if he really likes it, a sub to iRacing. In the meantime, we have Assetto Corsa and Project Cars on the horizon, as well as The Crew...lots of options...

Codemasters have the F1 license so no other company is allowed to make any F1 games.
There are a few pretty good racing games but it all depends on what your father likes. Sims or Arcade racing games, rally, track racing, Nascar etc.

I am no expert in the racing genre at all.
A few months back I bought my father a racing wheel and pedals and installed Euro trucker.
He says he doesn't want to drive a truck and wants to race. I know he likes F1 but this doesn't look like that good of a racing game.

Are there better F1 games out there?
What are some of the best racing games (in general) out there?

One of the worst tracks on the schedule, to gloat about the terrible engine sounds by driving one of the more under performing cars of the year.. At least they are consistent.
