F1 2018 red flag?

How do you think whether there will be a red flag in f1 2018? he is absent with f1 2014, I think it would be quite good if codemasters have returned a red flag

    It would be nice thing to have Also adverse weather conditions to such an extent that merit's a red flag so we can see them a bit more often without a massive crash (pile up) If it happen's regularly in real life why can't we ask for it in their games??

    Best guess is their engine is too over complicated or they can't be arsed to place it within the game lazy coding judging from the amount of problems (bugs) post release support with there games.

    How many different racing lines will you take

    As far as the game is concerned wouldnt that be nothing more than just a flag and then a restart like a normal safety car restart? Unless you actually want to sit staring at the screen waiting until it lets you start racing again and that doesnt sound any fun.

    Could be interesting to see a Red Flag return, since as far as I've heard we now might have standing restarts after Red Flag...

    I don't see the appeal of a red flag in a racing game. What do you do exactly? First you're racing, then there's a crash, you get a red flag, drive into the pits, then you either wait for five minutes real-time, or you get the option to skip the wait (like with repair times), and then you're returned to the grid. Sounds incredibly boring and unneccessary, especially if the game can't handle the flags realistically. Imagine if the game goes full **** and whips out the red flag after every crash? Sounds like fun, right?

    Red flags don't have to come out for every crash you can have it for extreme weather condition if it was working properly. And to me yes it's fun realistic and exciting

    Like I said, what if the game glitches out and gives us red flags constantly? It already happens with the safety car.
    I smell like a new car.

    If the game glitches with a feature that would be down to bad coding which then can be patched. Red flags safety car can work hand in hand Implemented with each other and the coding is done without any major hiccups. I do agree with you at the moment a stable game is more of a priority

    Not waiting for a red flag. Doesn't contribute to a nice gaming experience even though you know by now that I'm all for all the realism aspects of the game. Not this one however.

    If you use ABS or Traction Control, you are no longer a racing driver.

    If I get a few more questions about my driving style I think I headbutt someone.
