But my guess is for a fighter jet, it only simulates positive G's of various levels, whereas an F1 simulator would need to simulate positive (acceleration), negative (braking), and lateral in TWO directions (cornering)...impossible? Definitely not practical...

I guess have >1g load simulator is probably too expensive and unnecessary for the sake of accurate simulation.

I very much doubt guys like Hamilton ,Vettel or Schumacher could gain speed by pounding around in a simulator.These guys can drive a car.The relevance of the simualtor to the real thing is not very high .
