Driver/Team Performance

What do you think about the Team Perf. comparing to real F1?

In all my Qualifying sessions Alonso,Vandoorne,Wehrlein and Ericsson have been at the last 4 starting positions...

Imo its a little bit boring and unrealistic. Yes McLaren and Sauber are the weakest Teams but I remember also Massa and Stroll were out in Q1 at one weekend. I think it should be more variable.

Btw in 2016 it have been always Renault,Sauber and Manor at the last 6 positions. Maybe CM makes it always a little bit to easy...

Please notice: I'm talking only about Grand Prix mode... not career!

    In the last race in Spa you can see how Ricardo has beaten Raikkonen and Bottas. This will never happen in the game as Ferrari and Merc are nearly "unbeatable" for RB.
     For me it would be nice to get the performance adjusted soonest.

    Williams too fast
    Red Bull chassis not good enough
    McLaren chassis not good enough. They are 17th and 18th at every single track at the moment.

    Raikkonen and Bottas both too fast. In almost every session they are within a tenth or two of Vettel and Hamilton. It's boring and unrealistic seeing the top 4 within 2 tenths every qualifying.  In my opinion they need to be a few tenths slower but give them a small chance of a "good weekend" where they can be faster than Vettel or Hamilton.

    That's my main complaint so far, that everything is too static. Drivers and teams have set speed values and don't seem to vary enough from that value from weekend to weekend. The biggest example is Williams which is the 4th fastest car everywhere when it should be struggling badly at low speed circuits like Monaco.

    My issue with driver/team performance is:
    1- Williams is too over powered.
    2- Stroll qualifying and race results is over powered compared to real life.
    3- Merc and Ferrari too far ahead of Red Bull at high aero tracks.

    Force India far too slow as well as ocon also.

    For me the midfielders are generally ok
    .... imo the biggest change must be to bring RB closer to Merc ans Ferrari! They are 1-1,5sec slower but  they should be able to Beat at least Bottas and Räikkönen sometimes!

    Williams must be nerfed a lot ,probably lower than Force India and Renault now and maybe even with Mclaren(with better engine would be miles ahead of williams)
  • ArthurRayArthurRay Member New Car Smell
    Let's see irl Mercedes and Ferrari have one all but one race when I checked a few days ago.  Redbull won in Azerbaijan so not to unrealistic so far.

    Honda engine is also underpowered (I can't believe I'm saying that). But it is definitely more powerful than the 2015 Sauber. Still pretty far behind Renault (~20-30 Bhp) and Ferrari and Merc (40-50 bhp) but definitely ahead of Sauber. That and the chassis and aero should start 4th between the midfield and RB (if anything closer to RB). Remember Alonso got fastest lap on merit in Hungary IRL. Yeah Raikkonen was hampered by a hobbling Vettel, but it's still incredible. I can't imagine them being more than like .5s faster in the race if he hadn't. 

    Williams needs to be sent to 8th in aero and 9th in chassis ahead of only Sauber and Haas and Sauber in aero.

    Codemasters need to wait until Monaco to finalise car and driver ratings. Based on this season they didnt correct any teams performance after China. If you look at this seasons Australia, China qualifying and race results you'll get very similar results in the game.

    If you ignore the AI being 1.4 seconds faster on 110% than in real life, this applies to Bahrain as well and fully explains Massa's extremely high stats.

    Raikkonen is overrated.
    Williams is overrated.
    Honda is underrated.
  • CofferCoffer Member Unleaded
    Post-patch it looks as though everything's a bit out of place. Some driver stats have definitely been changed (Raikkonen, Massa), but because of this they're no longer Australia spec while the cars still are, which hurts the immersion a tad.

    Will there be an update in the performances within the next lets say 2 weeks?
    I'd like to start a season...

    Or should this be in the Tech.As. Thread?
