  • Safety Car Issue - MP Online Championship

    I know some might have already reported that but I did not find that thread so am starting new one
    Console: PS4
    Patch: 1.7
    Mode: Multiplayer Online Championship
    Circuit: Australia

    We enabled safety car and have damage on simulation
    Many cars crashed with debris remaining on track in corners that deserve a safety car (turn before last, turn 5 as examples), safety car was not released not even a VSC. Only yellow flags, crashed car disappeared in seconds then all back green
    Safety car comes out only in very heavy rain conditions when visibility becomes near to none. Fair enough! Yet the big issue is that cars that are far away in the back could not catch the safety car (10 cars width) in time. They took 2 drive through penalties, 1 got DSQ

    I believe this needs tweaking like extend the count down timer to 60 seconds instead of 30 seconds. SC benefit is about diving into the pit, changing your tyres for fresh rubber
    In conditions mentioned above, it is impossible to dive in and catch the safety car in matter of 30 seconds. If not increase the count down timer, possibly wait for 2 laps to start the count down since the SC never goes in before 3 laps
    @jennyannem please advise

  • Re: Mercedes and FIA cheating

    Lewis is a great driver, yet anyone driving his car will be able to do miracles. Look at Rosherg. Look at Bottas. I do not like Vettel, but the guy did amazing job in a car that was marginally better than Mclaren at those times.

    Mercedes didn't break any FIA rule but they did break an agreement signed by all engine manufacturers that said that they wouldn't have introduced any new engine before the new regulations in Monza. So they aren't cheating technically
    Possible, but breaking a "gentlemen agreement" is still called cheating, at least this is how I see it

    I was lucky to have watched Hakinen, Schumi, Alonso when F1 was a drivers sport. It has become a tech sports 100% .. which is boring. !!!

    again am not saying Lewis is not fast, but He is no match to Senna, Schumacher, Hakinen, Alonso .. those are drivers who made glory by pure skill .. 
    I think Lewis was the one who beat Alonso in his rookie year wasn't he? I know Lewis is someone most people hate, but that man can Drive and he is for sure up there with the Legends!
    I did not suggest Lewis is not an excellent driver. Also I know f1 is a tech sport and always has been. Yet driver skill was dominant factor in V8 and V10 eras. Now any schmuck in a mercedes seat can do miracles. Mercedes are cheaters. Ferrari dominated, yes but when schumi had that silverstone accident, Ferrari barely grabbed a win, so driver skill was a must those days.
