A sweaty "F1 2019" race, as my Sunday physical exercise

One of the reasons I play racing games, is because while I am at it, I am doing moderate physical exercise. For example, while playing “rFactor x”, “F1 xxxx”, or “Project Cars x”, at a demanding difficulty level, I have to focus and apply myself. These car racing games, when played with a steering wheel and pedals, configured to offer little to no assistance, and with the A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) set at ~100% strength, will require plenty of arms + legs + abdominal movements!

Today I raced 15 laps around Australia’s Melbourne circuit, in “F1 2019”. I started 20th and ended 18th, but achieved running in 10th position at a stage, until Lando Norris touched my rear-left tire, causing damage that would force me to anticipate a scheduled pit stop. I am starting to feel more comfortable in this game, but I have no pace at all, compared to the front-runners. The fastest A.I. cars were lapping in the 01:25:xxx, while I spent the entire race stuck on 01:29/30:xxx laps.

It was fun and hard. Here is the full “TV camera” replay of those 15 laps race. I am on the Renault number “2”.
Enjoy.
