A dumb little question, excuse my stupidity.

    Sorry for the stupid question, but I'm unable to solve it myself, and couldn't find the answer in the interwebz.
    Prior to the 1.4 (or was it the 1.3?) update, when starting a driving session, the selected car was shown (in the pits or on track) with the camera circumnavigating it. That was the background for the setup and other screens before hitting the track.
    Now, the background we get is some random views from cameras around the selected track and the car is nowhere to be seen.
    The question is, can I get the old background with the car back?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    No, is the short but sweet answer. I would also like to be able to either look at the car I am about to drive (some would say destroy) before joining the track, or at least be able to cycle through the cars on track. It is very pretty what we have been given but it would be nice to have a choice. :)

    That's another question and it's not even dumb.
    I liked that feature. :)

    It's done manually with the free camera I guess.
    Otherwise you would see the UI.

    Yeah, I suppose you are right.
    Well, my dumb question is answered, thanks to everybody involved. :)

    also try pessing F5 in-game when you are about to drive (with right-mouse click the cam will rotate around the car)

    you can press f1,3,5,6&7 from the menu screen to have any view you like whilst in the pits. I think the video above is the showroom? (didnt watch it)

    Thank you both. If that works while the UI is still visible, I'll be happy. :)
    Otherwise, the video is not from the showroom, the car is in the pits.

    I still hope that they change something before the console versions are out.
    It would be the first (console) game where you don't see the external view of your car before you jump into the cockpit!
    Kunos, your cars look incredible, please show them!

    Thank you Andy, I have been pressing CTRL 1/3 and not really thought about pressing the function keys, Du'h! I really should put this box of tricks back in its packaging and fire it off to someone who knows what they are doing. :confused: :D

    Oops, forgot to give credit for the video. Thanks. :)
    Exactly my thought.
    I love to admire the car for a few seconds, before driving or fiddling with the setup.

    it definitely works... same way you can view other players from pit menu and change view whilst watching them

    (and your welcome :) )

    In fact, you can press the function keys for the different cameras during the loading screen and the corresponding camera will already be displaying when the session/UI loads.
