Since the loading times in online races can take to multiple minutes, and usually during this time I minimize the game to check, for example, internet, it would be very convenient to have the game icon in windows taskbar illuminated, when the race track is loaded and the list of racers is shown. A similar system like, for example, in Dota 2.
Edit: after online games or when the game was minimized (not sure, which is the culprit), my controller no longer vibrates and I have to restart game to have the vibrations back. Update: no vibration is only in freeroam after quitting the online mode. After entering a race, the vibration was restored.
