F1 2017 - Bug - Speed and Shift gearing

DevBrothersDevBrothers Member New Car Smell
Hello everybody,

I'll need your thoughts on this one.
I was playing F1 2017 for like 2 months with a new wheel (Thrustmaster Ferrarri GT Experience btw). I hadn't any problem to install it or to calibrate it.
It appeared recently that, randomly after a few laps and in any game mode, my car begins to slow down and my gears becomes really hard to shift. Like I'm stagning.

Furthermore, I also realised that the DRS stopped working properly during that strange issue. In a manner of fact, I know when to use it and when it can't be used.
But when I'm playing during that issue, with perfect conditions on track I might add, the DRS symbol appears so I use the command, it flickeres a bit and comes back like it didn't work.

I'm playing on a HP All in One with Windows 10. The game itself is installed and launched within Steam.
For the record, I reinstalled the game a multiple times and I already has verified the game integrity twice
In fact, I checked my drivers too.

I hope someone can help me with this because it's very annoying to face that issue during a long session.

Thank you.

    Is the wheel plugged into a USB hub or extension cable? Plug directly into motherboard USB.

    Is it plugged into USB 3.0 port (blue centre key)? Try USB 2.0.

    Are your motherboard drivers and firmware up to date? 

    Are the Thrustmaster drivers the latest? Check in the TM Control Panel (it updates the firmware too). Try removing the drivers with Geek uninstaller and reinstalling.

    Try removing other USB devices then reintroduce until you find a conflict. PS/2 keyboard and mouse useful for troubleshooting.


    I'm not stupid, I just don't always have all the necessary information,...stupid.

    Thanks for your quick answer.

    In fact, I'm acting like this is my problem but actually it's a friend's issue and he asked me to take care of it.
    So, I'll verify those things with him.

    But I can say that the firmware version and the drivers are up to date. I personnally handled that part.

    Does this issue seems familiar to you or do you think this is some isolated one ?

    Finally I checked my friend's computer and tried everything to talked me about.

    His computer is a HP All-in-one 24-B104NF running on Windows 10.

    The wheel was plugged in a USB 3 port, and I switched it to a USB 2 port.
    Its drivers are up to date and it is well calibrated.
    I checked the Control Panel and everything was fine.

    The motherboard and all its components have their drivers up to date too.

    Unfortunately, the issue is still there and I still don't know where it's from. The only thing I can think about is that my friend's computer may be not efficient enough to run the game. So the game is running well for a couple of minutes and when I launch the career or something else, the bug appears.

    Now, I'm running out of options so I hope someone who eventually faced the problem I explained earlier will help me on this.

    Whatever, thank you.

    You can check the specification against Steam requirements and run dxdiag which will list your RAM, CPU, GPU and Sound, these are the most important.

    How much hard drive freespace does your friend have? Less than 10% will cause a slow down.
