Can't start playing F1 Race Stars

ibarabaibaraba Member New Car Smell

I just bought F1 Race Stars via Steam. I installed the game on my PC and wanted to start playing it but when I go into the menu, I am using an Xbox controller, and click Play, it tries to connect to a Racenet account and then kicks me back into the main menu instead of starting a race. What do I need to do in order to be able to play this game? 

Please help.

    I just found the secton where I give Codemasters permission to connect to my Steam account. I thought this was the solution but same thing: once I press PLAY it checks if I have some Racenet account and then it kicks me back to the main menu. 

    How do I start playing the game? Please help!

    It's one of those "You're probably better off" situations, but yeah, get a Racenet account up. I think I needed one for play GRID AS so it seems a logical step to take. 

    Plus it's unlikely you will get an answer from anyone other than the community. 
    You remember when you first came to my office? I asked you, "Do you want to be an eagle, or do you want to be a **** bird?" And you said "I want to be an eagle".
    You got to be what you say you're going to be, which you aren't.
