Unfortunately I'm sure everything is going to release alpha product as called beta to take another year of time for developing. As you said, without replays, without proper postprocessing. Wouldn't surprised if it will be useless for serious league racing due to some serious issues.
After years of waiting, a few release promises, "almost done" statements, we got such partial product, and Tim will say: "I didn't say that final version will be released on Christmas, I said you will be happy with rF2 for Christmas."
Sometimes I have a feeling that we are regarded to be retarded. I would like to be wrong.
