Yeah I have to agree with you there. They definitely rushed F1 2010 to market leaving us to wait weeks (may have even been a month) before the crucial issues were fixed. I waited for reviews last time and they didn't notice the bugs, instead it was the online community who reported them. So I would keep an eye on either Codemasters forums or any of game forums as to the quality of the game on release. If there are issues, we can then wait until they are ironed out rather then have our gaming experience tarnished. If there are any bugs like last time, waiting will hopefully save us some money too.
I doubt there'll be as many bugs, don't forget they have the experience of the last release - and also I'm guessing most of the core engine of the game will be as it was for 2011, with the incremental update of some new features for this release, meaning they'll have been a little less rushed.
