F1 2019 Spectator Mode Idea!

It will be amazing, if camera in spectator mode will always shows the most important part of track. TV Cam could show crashes, battles and pitstops without changing the driver manually. It will be amazing improvement to E-Sport transmisions and online leagues.

    Race Direction is like, a job. You can't devise an AI to do this that would fit in less data than the entire game! 
    I'm not stupid, I just don't always have all the necessary information,...stupid.

    At least give the spectator a tool to use what camera they want: TV, pod, heli, trackside, etc

    Of course you can. iRacing does it now, and Geoff Crammond's games did it years ago if I recall.
    Braked: the past tense of brake.
    Broke, brokenanything within reach when I hear racing gamers say 'broke' instead of 'braked'.

    Steward mode would be good too... allow incidents to be revied with a replay feature that then allows said dedicated steward to award penalties to drivers that the game wouldn't do automatically.

    Race Direction will always be subjective. An AI can't make that choice. 

    Codemasters AI can't even get fault collisions correct so it's moot.

    Been begging for an online multiplayer replay system for years now. Codemasters said it's not something they are looking at, yet they use it extensively in their eSport series.  I guess we mere mortals are not worthy of such luxuries.
    Or...
    We just dont scream as loud as the pad players do with overheating tyre.
    Real shame thou... and definitely a massive missed opportunity for Codemasters. Imagine the YouTube videos all the racing leagues would have!
