Speaking as an F1 fan from the UK I cannot wait for this game to come out but I don't get the sense there is the same buzz around it in the USA, not sure how big the F1 following is over there considering none of the teams are based there and this season theres no race in US. I know that Codemasters racing games are considered arcadey but I really think this one could be the exception, the weather effects and dynamic track grip conditions make it really interesting. What I'm basically saying is make a quick look please!

No, but if I could get an NTSC copy of Rugby 10 I'd play it.

For a moment I thought you were talking about Fifa or some other soccer game, as you Brits are the only ones that play those games. ;-)
 
But Formula One? Nah, I like my racing games to be arcadey.

I just hope GT5 has a slew of licensed F1 carts, that's about it.
 
I generally don't do well after the game wants me to drive racing cars though. And F1 carts always had a way of scaring the hell out of me. My brain cannot process the speed (acceleration to be more precise) these things are going in.

I'm from UK as well and am eagerly awaiting this game. Understand why Americans might not be interested after Indianapolis 2005 though. I can't wait to try out the new circuits, the last F1 game I played was 2001 on PS2. Montreal, one of the best, glad to see it back Hockeymask27.

It's like soccer (I mean futebol): Small, loyal fanbase, but most don't care/know about it.

Its not a real sim unless I can just spend my way to a victory and from week to week research new diffusers and stuff and get an edge on the competition.

I'm not from the US, but I'm still not a 100% sure I'll get it. If it has proper sim controls (it doesn't have to be extremely realistic, but not too arcadey), and if the speed is as insane as real F1, then I'll definitely get it.

I do.  I love simracers, and I love Codies racing games. So yeah, I like what I've seen and am about ready for an F1 game, as I've finally reached Forza 3 burnout.

Racing games, not interested. F1, not interested. F1 racing game? You can probably guess...

F1 is much better than Nascar imo if that's what you mean.  I used to play F1 racing games.

I do care, but then again I'm an American born and raised in Brazil, and there, F1 is a pretty big sport though not huge like futebol "soccer". We are still waiting for a new guy like Ayrton Senna...

Americans have so many sports to choose from so it's more likely they'd follow a sport/league in which a fellow American can be cheered for. I think that's the main thing but also things like many Grand Prix's take place in Europe and when it's race time, it's early Sunday morning on this continent. Either a person is going to Church, is sleeping, or both.

@pwnasaurus:  I'm also from Canada and I'm thinking about getting it. The last game I played by CM was Grid, which was a decent game but I'm not much into arcade-style racers. Its a possible purchase.

Sorry to dissapoint you dude, but football (or soccer as you may know it) is the most practiced and most popular sport in the world. The fact that soccer is not as popular as other sports in the US, doesnt' mean that the rest of world is not into it.

My guess is that he meant within the US, since saying soccer has a small fan base is crazy, even I a person who doesn't really like soccer or almost any type of racing including F1 realize both F1 and soccer have huge followings.

While I don't watch the races religiously, I'll watch if I happen to catch them on TV.  But the game has been delayed for 3 days now, and I'm pretty anxious to play it.

I picked up my copy last night, and am loving it.   F1 is the pinnacle of racing.

I live in Canada, and am a HUGE F1 fan; I wish I new more people who were. This game is very high on my list of games to buy, from what I've heard it is awesome.

I care about F1, but he only reliable way for me to view it is to have my friend record the races.  Otherwise I would have to get up crazy early just to watch it.

I live in Southern California and bought this game the day it came out. 
 
However, most Americans don't care/have no clue about Formula 1, sadly. A lotttt of Americans, mainly in the Midwest, are rednecks and somehow enjoy Nascar instead. It blows my mind. I think F1 is the best motoring in the world. Haven't missed a race this season. RBR all the way!
