Real Racing: First Person or Third Person?

Which do you prefer to use?

I generally use first person, and switch to third sometimes on straights for a heightened sense of speed.

first person, the fact it even had that view was my draw to the game

Sounds dirty...

I use cockpit view. It's the only way I can trick myself into feeling like I'm actually driving a car in these simulator-type driving games. Otherwise, I always end up over-turning the wheel or running into everything in sight.

Both. I like the realism of the cockpit view but sometimes switch to 3rd person to admire the graphics.

Since when do cars have cockpits? Dashboard view for me. It controls much better that way.
