Looks like I need to rearrange my seating position a bit. I backed it off slightly from the realistic position, thinking I was a bit too high up in the car and a bit to close to the wheel. Didn't realize exactly how different the structure of the car was.

From the angle of much of this footage, you're really packed in that puppy :O
Obviously, the angle of the footage plays a role here, but dang, pretty tight in there.
...almost triggers a bit of claustrophobia (that I don't even have...lol)

This is the 1989 car designed by a certain Adrian Newey, the March's of that time were known to be very very cramped. Something Newey wanted to minimise drag and make the car more aerodynamic.

The 91 car, was more driver friendly comfort wise.

Noticed that after I commented.
Tried, briefly, to find a bit of 91 footage but came up empty. Youtube seemed pretty shy of such footage, but I only tried one search as I'm about to head out for work and didn't have the time.

Sort of comical, in a way. The amount of time and effort I spend trying to make my cockpit nice and comfy...and here they were in the real world like "here's your car, shut up and drive it"...."oh, it's cramped you say? Suck it up buttercup!".....lol

So I guess if I want true to life simulation, I should just find the most cramped, uncomfortable position I can imagine, throw some crap over top of me only inches from hands, squeeze my legs together, and grin and bear it. Seems a better representation of the truth, at times.

Hard to imagine having to manhandle one of these things in those tight quarters. And the bad habit I've developed of "one handing" the cars at times just wouldn't work a bit in that thing.

:yaa:

It was cramped yes, the pedal space was that small the drivers had to "rest" their foot over the clutch as there was no extra space to rest their foot Razz There is a video of Jackie Stewart testing that very car, and complaining about the comfort.

If you want realism it could be fun, but i will feel sorry for you after 30 mins!

Blame Adrian Newey. Not exactly a champion of ergonomics in race cars.

That's the one :top:

Yes his fault, but i bet any driver of the era would jump to drive one of his cars, cramped or not Razz

I quote the late and great Carroll Smith: "Any self respecting driver would sell their mother down the river for that kind of opportunity"

So it was the MP4/10 being so bad, and not Nigel Mansell simply being to fat? :hihi:

Newey was at Williams at the time. So, to answer your question: both.
