After a long wait, Forza Motorsport is finally here, but how do you turn on the game's leaderboard?
Experienced Forza players may already know the answer to this one, but as this is the first Forza Motorsport title on the Xbox Series X|S, there will be a lot of players who don't know how to enable this feature.
We've got everything you need to know about the leaderboard in Forza Motorsport right here!
How to turn on leaderboard
So, before we get into this guide, we need to establish which leaderboard we're referring to here. After all, there are several leaderboards present in Forza Motorsport, such as the overall time trial lap time leaderboard for a circuit.
However, we're referring to the in-race leaderboard that you can see during an event. Most games have this enabled by default, but Forza Motorsport isn't one of those.
This is something you want to have enabled, especially if you're new to Forza Motorsport and/or racing games as a whole. After all, this leaderboard will show you who is ahead and behind you and what the time gaps are.
While it's more realistic to not have this leaderboard visible, it does take away from the immersion somewhat. If there was an option to hear what the gaps are from your race engineer like in games such as F1 23, this wouldn't be so bad. That, sadly, is not the case here.
Enabling the leaderboard
So, where can you find the option to enable the in-race leaderboard? The best way to do this is to go to the game's main menu and head into the Settings section.
Then go to Gameplay & HUD, which is the third section from the left. Scroll down to near the bottom of the first page of their menu to the "mini leaderboard" option.
You can choose to set the leaderboard to display either the time gaps or the physical distance. We recommend going for time gaps, as the distance gaps are very subjective in that they vary depending on the speeds of your car and your rivals.
For example, if you're going full throttle down a straight and your rival is braking for a corner, the distance gap will . This is known as "the Accordion effect", so a distance gap can give you a false impression of how far you're ahead or behind.
