Just wanted to add I did a race in Singapore this morning using the pad on the PS4 and had no issues with managing the tyre temperatures, using no assists. I do struggle at Monaco but managed Singapore without the tyre overheating issues. Know im going to get bashed for saying this but I really do think it’s a case of a lot of people pushing the car too hard to keep up with higher difficulty settings they were used to on previous games (as well as on the majority of tracks on this years game) and not being willing to admit that they need to drive a bit slower to manage the tyres as well as adjust the way they drive the car.Maybe the problem could be softened by evening out the difficulty on certain tracks. Either that or the player could lower the difficulty on those particular tracks themselves as a work-around.
I’m tempted to make a thread with a poll to see what people think of the default difficulty on all tracks. I’ve found a difficulty setting that works for me overall but I did find I was WAY too quick compared to the AI on Canada and Austria (and somewhat also Italy too strangely), where I really seem to struggle on Monaco and Singapore in terms of pace. I know it could be just me personally being a bit cack at the city tracks but I find I’m constantly playing around with the difficulty slider where the AI seem a fair bit uneven in terms of pace.
So if you're overheating the tires does the color change on the MFD? Or does it just give temperature readouts?
I know there’s probably an article thread about tyre temps but is anything going to be done for pad users? It’s getting to the point it’s ridiculous. No matter how easy you are on the pad or what your setup is the tyres will unrealistically overheat. In street circuits it’s the worst which makes absolutely no sense. It’s becoming less and less enjoyable to play this game because as soon as your tyres hit 105 that’s it. You can’t ever cool them down and you start sliding despite having 17% tyre wear. Makes league racing such a chore as no one is even racing properly just sat there trying to figure out how to drive safely with lava tyres. 111C is ridiculous for tyre temps in Singapore. Just makes literally no sense for a slow corner track. Hope something is done soon because this game isn’t fun
