Author Topic: Max shows his true colours in sim racing game, look out F1 back markers  (Read 1914 times)

Offline John S

Verstappen makes contact with another car in iRacing practice session, and lets the other driver know he isnít pleased.

One rival wasn't to Max's liking after on track incident in practice session, prompting the Formula 1 star to take matters into his own hands Ė as captured on Twitch by user MrGit.

E-sports has become quite a serious business, and some might think that this is a none event, but in the past other pro-drivers have had their accounts suspended for similar actions. The rules are very clear that users must not take out others, no matter the reason.

Former F1 driver Scott Speed was the last pro-driver to be banned from iRacing, having exacted revenge in a very similar manner in February 2018.
Itís unclear as yet if Max will receive the same action.

The danger with the ever advancing realism with these games, is that "some" drivers reach a point where it appears that they can't separate real life experiences from a computer game.   You have to believe that some race drivers play computer games with "real life" reactions/emotions and some may be putting in the laps on the track, with brief moments of thinking that they are actually playing a computer game (especially with all the controls on their wheel/dash).

Sounds a little far fetched, but in all honesty, is it?

Best Regards,
Cal :)

P.S.  Loved the English guys facial reaction ... "that was PROPER NAUGHTY!!!"

There's also the risk of muscle memory, in the case of people doing the same job as depicted in the game (like Max). Even if the brain is saying that revenge in reality is not like revenge in a computer game, the muscles can't tell the difference and carry on in the pattern set by habit.
