Codemasters haven't ever made a simulator... - none of their games have gone near that yet, and Grid shows that they aren't probably going to in the future.
reberto, DiRT isn't a simulator, its basically Grid but off road. It seems that codemasters tried to make grid like NFS, but seen as you cannot customise the cars in the same way then it really isn't the same sort of thing. Also, their race driver games have always been about trying to have some realism... and this has basically taken that and replaced it with rubbish. If i wanted a game like NFS i would just go all the way and get NFS instead of getting something like this... which is basically a knock off version.
That said, NFS has more feel to the handling than this game does - most of the cars in Grid feel like they are hovermowers...
I just hate the fact that they could have made an amazing game, but chose to make the handling incredibly unrealistic and make all the cars easy to drive so that they can just chase sales. With the great graphics they have, with some realistic physics for the cars they would have made a brilliant game - and one that would actually then be different from DiRT - as opposed to what we have here which is basically the onroad version of DiRT.
