Default iRacing F1 car available

So
What do ye think? I did a few laps last night and I'm under a minute at Road Atlanta pretty easily. Speedwise, it doesn't feel crazy fast (very like F1 2010 and Ferrari virtual academy) so I'm just driving too many laps in the GT1 vette and the Dallara indy car maybe but it is crazy fast around the turns, brakes are ridiculous late and so on.

UPDATE: 1:05 at Road Atlanta, under a minute is definitely possible for those with more time on their hands though and comfortable with a low drag settings.

I had a blast in it last night... But I'm obviously not pushing it too hard, cause it did kinda feel a little too easy to drive.

I can't stand Silverstone, so I joined a hosted session on Watkins Glen (no boot)... got into the upper 54's... which was good enough for 4th spot on the grid of about 23 cars that were in the session.

Spun out in the bus stop on the 1st lap... ended up back of the pack after having to suffer through one of those pesky "slow down" black flags... got hit again and ended up towing back to the pits.

But I was having so much fun, I continued, and ended up winning the damn race because everyone else either gave up and logged out! The one other guy who was in front of me by 20 seconds or so with three laps remaining decided to try and set his best lap time w/low fuel. He crashed, which gave me the win.

Lots of fun!
