The author of this article seems to have forgotten one of the biggest leaps forward in racing sims - Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix series. OK this series is a bit nerdy if you are not into F1 but it did move sims into realistic physics for the first time. Another classic which wasn't mentioned is Grand Prix Legends, which was awesome! Maybe too hard for most to master.
It's been a while since a decent F1 game has been released for the PC platform. I'd be keen to see something that captures the new cicuits, qualifying formats and teams, although the latter two change quite frequently.
