Hard to believe, but I've been told by Codemasters, there will be NO in car/drivers seat view for this!
Unbelievable! How can this be; it's a bl**y driving game!!!

Would you buy a flying sim/game that didn't work with a joystick? No, of course not.

You've dropped the ball with this one Codemasters, and lost a sale as I shan't be buying it.

Their reasoning is the current generation consoles. And they also mentioned 5% (from what platform, I don't know) only use cockpit view.

Beats me. I've got 20+ racing sims/games, and there isn't one of them that I've ever used anything other than the drivers cockpit view!
Yes, I've looked at the other views; but I've not used the other views for an entire lap or more.

I could understand a child, who hasn't actually driven a REAL car, may prefer an alternative, but i find it VERY hard to believe that the average adult driver would want to race in anything other than the drivers view.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't believe so. Everyone I know (who use PCs rather than consoles) thinks as I do.

Early comments coming in from the US seem to say that the way the game is designed to be played, the lack of cockpit cam is no loss, which I take as a positive given so many are disgruntled by this omission... here's hoping...

I can't see myself buying it. Shame, as I've looked forward to the launch for so long and so much.
I loved the original Grid (PC)
I need to feel I'm in the car to drive it properly. The only thing I lack then is the G force.
I get all the other sensory feedback I need to drive fast and well.

Yeah, Gamer's begged for cockpit views for Forza 3 - came.
None complained against it for Grid 2 - removed. It's like Forza morphing to arcade once you consider Grids origins.
