BMW Sauber F1.06 on

BMW Sauber F1.06 is the real 2006 BMW Sauber Formula One car.

The real BMW Sauber F1.06. Incredibly fast in every way. You'll need to drive absolutely on the limit to get the most out of it. You don't need to lift or even use a gearstick for shifting - the onboard electronics will do it faster than you ever could.


The BMW Sauber F1.06 was introduced in version 0.5S on April 21, 2006. Before its introduction, a set of teasers were posted on the LFS website, accompanied by a photo of the BMW Sauber car.

The old Blackwood forest guru once said, "better waste a minute in life, than life in a minute". But who needs a minute in Blackwood?

It was referring to the fact that the BMW Sauber can drive around the Blackwood GP Track in less than a minute.

Setup tip

Stiff suspension is way to go here, the tyres flex enough you just don't need the springs to. This also means you can use stiff anti-roll bars without screwing up the handling. High wing angles are needed to increase traction and make use of all that power. The traction control is definately useful to stop you pushing too hard. 4% is a good beginners limit. Hardcore players like to leave it off all-together.
