F1 2016 - Crash on Launch

Hello Guys,

i need Your help. I Buyed this Game at Christamas and its still not working. I start the Game at Steam and i see a 10sec. BlackScreen. Then i'm back at my Desktop.
The Game has all Access in Firewall and all Startup Programms are killed.
My Hardware is from 10/2016 and better than the minimum Hardware the Game need. Im working on a Win7 64bit Professional System. All drivers are Up To Date.

I didn't found a thread, which one help in my Situation. I also checked the Files with Steam and everything is okay. Also started as Admin. The CrashDump says following:
-> Orginial German: 'Der Thread hat versucht, von einer virtuellen Adresse, für die er nicht über die entsprechenden Zugriffsrechte verfügt, zu lesen oder in diese Adresse zu schreiben.'
-> Translated: 'The Thread tryied to read or write from a virtual adress without needed Permissions for this Operation.'

    Have you overclocked your CPU or GPU? For me, when I overclock my graphics card, the game crashes.
