    Hi everyone! My name is Barry and I'm the new Developer Liaison for the F1 Games series. I will be looking after the F1 sections of the forums moving forward. I’ll be taking your feedback, thoughts and comments to the team, as well as keeping you updated on different bits about the game like new patches and any information passed onto me from the developers. The biggest part of my job will be helping the team with any problems you may find, so if you’ve found any new issues with the game, I’ll be jumping into the discussion to find out more about what’s going on. One of my main plans is to make these forums more active and user friendly to find discussions on the issues they are having, regardless of which F1 game it is. So do expect some things to be moving around a little, but it will be better and more responsive in the long run. I'll be adding the latest patch notes onto the site next week, which should resolve some issues raised by everyone on these forums. Thanks for your patience and feedback on this, and we are continuing to work on F1 2019 into the new year and beyond to make it the best game experience we can for our players. I’m really looking forward to helping wherever I can to make our games better for everyone! If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask, I’ll do my best to answer them!

    Hey people! You may have seen my post last week where I asked you about issues you had with the game. I've had almost 150 replies and I went through all of them. Thank you to everyone who replied, I appreciate it a lot! Now it's time for the results. A quick warning, there is A LOT to read. Note: These issues are across all platforms and both multiplayer and single player. I genuinely hope that the game finally gets fixed. Most of the people who quit the game, did so because of the lack of stability and excess of bugs. I do expect more people to quit playing the game if the game doesn't get attention soon. The game was promoted as "esports ready" but that has turned into a big meme sadly. Over the past few months there have been plenty "technical issues" with the esports events (both pro series and challenger series) and everyone knows it's because the game is just not in a good place. Cheers, JC. Community involvement There is a complete lack of communication to the community. There is so much feedback about the game and it just seems to get ignored. Keep us updated about what you're working on. Be transparent. Start actively looking for issues with the game instead of waiting for people to report things. Game crashes Player’s game crashing at random while in a race, in a loading screen or in a lobby. No idea what’s causing it, but a lot of people have these issues. Steam compatibility is one of the issues for some people, but the crashes still occur with the steam overlay disabled. Tabbing out frequently causes the game to crash but again, not always and very inconsistently. When in a lobby after selecting a car, game crashes occur when going back to the car selection menu. An issue where people are shown a black screen while leaving a session. They get stuck here and have to force quit the game. Any progress made is lost. Game performance There are still people reporting random screen-freezes out of nowhere. This causes force feedback to drop out as well for the duration of the screen-freeze. When people join or leave a lobby the drivers in the lobby get a small stutter. Not just the host, usually every driver in the lobby. FPS drops when steam messages are received and shown in the overlay. There is a general incompatibility with steam. Many people have to disable the overlay to play the game. An issue where the lobby host’s FPS goes to +-20 after someone else leaves or joins the lobby. This doesn’t disappear until the host leaves the session. Issue where FPS drops after changing the position of HUD elements on the screen. Issue where the player’s car seems to be teleporting while changing settings in the menu. Lagg/fps drops during pit stops. Formation lap/Race start issues When starting a formation lap or race start some people get stuck “loading”. After a while their game lets them drive off while the rest of the grid gets stuck on the loading screen. When the driving car leaves the session the rest of the grid finally gets to drive. In this clip you can see what happens. There is also a POV from the driver who experiences this issue and is able to drive himself. A similar thing happens with all players loaded. Desynchronized starts where part of the grid still shows red lights while the other part of the grid has no lights and can drive off. This often causes crashes because people don’t expect cars to be stationary at a race start. Desync/net code issues Desync issues are still here. Two people are unable to see each other, causing them to drive “inside” of each other. This looks very odd for someone who can see both cars as they appear to drive on top of each other. Example (Both Mercedes cars are desynced) When the game disconnects a driver (or the game crashes) and the player joins back, there is a high chance of the gaps being wrong. For example, a player might be within DRS range, but the delta says the gap is 3 seconds Some players receive a message showing “no unbranded lobbies” while searching for multiplayer lobbies. Drivers having contact with another car even though there is no visible contact, likely caused by desync. Drivers getting penalties for contact even though there is nobody on their screen. An issue where a player gets kicked and receives a message that the session no longer exists. Error code SP64. Every network maintenance seems to bring more desync and lobby issues, especially the past few weeks. Sometimes when voting for a new track in ranked lobbies the vote sometimes gets stuck or happens more than once. An issue where blue flags were shown to drivers who are on the same lap as the car behind. Track limits and penalties The track limits on certain tracks are very odd. Some corners such as Stowe in Britain you can run super wide, gain 0.2s without warning while you do get a warning if you cross the white line only slightly. In other corners you can get instant 5s stop-go penalties for a very small cut (mainly in hairpins) while you don’t get any warning if you cut the track a tiny bit less. An example, the player in the clip below spins off track, stays off track for a while and gets a 10s penalty when going back on track. Clearly, he didn’t gain an advantage or anything here. It’s very frustrating when these things happen. Getting (grid) penalties for a collision caused by another driver. Getting disqualified from a session while having to reverse to get back on track or having to drive the track backwards for a short period to safely turn the car around (on Monaco for example). When loading a save or using a flashback in the pit lane, players are randomly awarded 5 second penalties for no reason. Penalties sometimes show incorrectly. Issue where rules were set to corner cutting only and one driver got a speeding penalty while entering the pits while others did not. Issue where penalties don’t pop up on screen for whatever reason. In practice it doesn’t show a red track, no message, only the black and white flag next to the time on the HUD. This was fixed by opening the options menu and then all the messages popped up. Pit issues A glitch where you get held in the pits either before your teammate has left the pit while double stacking, or after the tyres have been changed. Often causes people to get stuck infinitely or for a long time at least, but most people get stuck so long that they leave the race. Double stacking. There seems to be a sweet spot for this and if you miss it then the pitstop is screwed. This has to do with the time of the animation. It’d be great if double stacking was more of a thing. In real life teams can easily pull this off without losing more than 1s per stop. Pit crews not replacing a front wing when the wing is damaged and the MFD option is set to yes to replace the wing. When it’s set to yes it should always repair the wing unless there is no damage. In qualifying or practice, when two cars try to leave the pit box within +-10-15s of each other they glitches out in a way where the later car sees the other car driving out but ends up going out before the other driver. This doesn't always happen, but it sure is annoying. There is an issue in Monaco where the car gets released from the pitlane and drives straight into the wall without steering input. Sound issues Rev limiter glitch. The engine continuously makes the sound it makes at maximum rpm. Lee said this was supposed to be fixed even before the game launched since it’s a glitch that was also in F1 2018 and it was said this would've been fixed. Complete loss of sound when loading into a session. The only way to fix this for a player is to reconnect to the lobby or move on to the next session. A glitch where the player infinitely hears the xp ticking sound until the xp screen is shown again. In some cases, the race engineer stops answering or gives incomplete answers when questions are asked through the MFD. Audio stutters where game audio stops for half a second and then continues again. Safety car The way the safety car comes out is very random. Sometimes in a 50% race a driver retires in the pits and it calls out a (virtual) safety car but when 3 cars crash out, all losing their wing or retiring, nothing happens. In case of cars crashing we should see a safety car, or at least a virtual safety car if there are no retirements while a retirement in the pits shouldn’t trigger anything. In the gif there’s a big crash and no safety car comes out which is ridiculous. The safety car sometimes shows up during qualifying sessions. Not sure how this happens. Not being allowed to overtake the safety car while being a lap down. Issue where the safety car remains on track even though there are green flags. Issue where the safety car is supposed to come into the pits but stays out (message pops up but it stays out). Retiring the car Allow us to retire the car in the pits like in real life. Currently in league races people retire from the race while driving into the pits, but the AI takes over and completes the pitstop and drives out again, causing a yellow flag on track and sometimes a VSC, which can ruin the race. Tyre issues During the formation lap the tyres basically heated up and got worn as if they got dipped in lava. Wear over 90% and temps over 1000C as seen in the pictures. When spectating, it often happens that tyres are shown incorrectly on the car. The player can be on softs and the tyres on the car show yellow. Happens with all tyre combinations, even between dries and wets. This bug also appears for drivers when looking at other cars, but less frequently. It feels like tyre data was copy pasted from F1 2018 and is not at all in line with the actual tyre performance of the real 2019 season. Issue where a player gets completely fresh tyres or a different set of tyres when someone else joins an ongoing practice session. Receiving a different tyre set than the one chosen in the selection menu. Ghosting Sometimes when cars are stationary on track and spun around/sideways they don’t ghost even though ghosting is enabled. In these cases, they should really ghost when the rest of the cars are driving 200+ kph. Sometimes when cars ghost and you drive through them, they will still spin as if the two cars collided. Cars randomly ghosting for no reason. Setups There seems to be an issue where setups show as loaded, but when starting the race, it reverts to the default setup. When loading a setup in Time Trial it doesn’t always load the setup. It sometimes takes a few tries when copying someone’s setup before it is actually applied. It seems that the game struggles more to overwrite custom setups than default setups. Esports events Some people seem to have an issue where their time doesn’t get saved in the esports events even though they’ve signed up. Barriers Sometimes when tyre barriers are hit, they move onto the track and blocking it. In real life when this happens barriers are fixed, and debris is removed from the track. This can be solved by calling out a (V)SC so the barrier can be “repaired” and put back in place. AI AI behavior seems to be very hit or miss. Sometimes they just completely turn in even though the player is alongside them for the entire braking zone. Then other times in an almost identical overtake they just completely back out. When blue flagged, they just slam their brakes when you’re in their slipstream, thus breaking the player’s front wing. They tend to drive into the wall in turn 3 at Baku if you overtake around the outside, or brake-check the player at turn 11 in Bahrain. AI very rarely (almost never) make mistakes and players feel like they have too much traction out of corners. They’re too much on rails. Qualifying times when a player is not in q3 or fast forwarding seem to be faster than they are supposed to be. AI pace is very inconsistent from track to track. On some tracks people struggle to keep up with their teammate, while they fight for podiums on other tracks. AI strategies are unrealistic/unusual. They always stick to their strategy. For example, when it starts raining, they sometimes pit for new slicks one lap before DRS enables and it is time for wet weather tyres. Weber is still very fast compared to other AI. An issue where AI performance reverted to season 1 round 1 when the player got knocked out of qualifying before Q3. AI starts are unrealistically good and consistent. AI getting stuck in front of their pit box during practice sessions and qualifying. Issue where AI cars teleport in career mode. AI seems to be incredibly quick in rainy conditions. Issue where AI set dry lap times on a wet track. AI never have collisions with each other, which is very unrealistic. Career mode Gearbox worn out very quickly. Even with 100% research it barely made 6 races. Players getting rain in every race weekend in career mode. Fastest lap will not be recorded on the driver profile if the player saves the game mid-session. Setting the fastest lap after loading the session again also doesn’t register. Williams’ performance is too good in the first season. Issue where certain drivers constantly DNF, including the opening races where components are completely new. This doesn’t happen for the player whatsoever. This ruins the immersion since championship rivals will get penalties at the final races this way. Car development is too quick. You can have a maxed-out car after 3 seasons. There should be an option to change this. Engine development is unrealistic. An existing engine can not be improved while in use, meaning that upgrades should only apply on unused engine parts instead of all parts (this is how FIA regulates it). Furthermore, raw engine performance of customer teams should NEVER be better or worse than that of the factory team. Of course, there are small advantages to be gained with fuel for example, but Alfa Romeo shouldn’t pass Ferrari because their engine performance is 10% better. Practice programs are very dull and repetitive. It would be great to see some change here. Simulating is not much of an option for most people because components wear out too much when doing so. An idea would be to activate multiple programs at once, so the player doesn’t have to go back to the pits after 2 laps of driving. Race simulation program should be with full race fuel (27.5/55/105kg, depending on the settings) and not with 6 laps. You can change components (all but gearbox) between qualifying and the race without penalty, even though you’re breaking parc fermé. Interview questions get super repetitive. It’d be great if more were added which shouldn’t be difficult at all. Theater At some tracks large parts of the highlights show walls or the back of a grandstand instead of the cars. Canada is one of them. Most of the time the replay system doesn’t actually show the highlights, instead it just shows the player driving around the track randomly with like 25% of the overtakes. There are also cases where the replay cuts off right before an overtake which is stupid. It shows the build-up and then gives a big anti-climax. Complete replays of races would be great, including overtakes from other drivers instead of just your own. Leagues F2 cars unavailable. No save option between sessions. Other ERS management is unrealistic. I think I can say this for everyone playing F1 that it’s better to have automatic ERS management with an overtake button that can be used when there is enough battery charge, just like in real life. The way fuel works seems unrealistic. It might be to simulate different engine modes, but we end up switching fuel throughout the lap too often whereas the real F1 drivers don’t switch engine modes that often. Tracks need updating. They have been the same for far too long and they are just not the same as they are in real life. One thing especially is the bump at Suzuka between the final chicane and the finish line. The car performance is off. Some tracks the cars are too slow, while at other tracks the cars are much faster than what they should be. This is partially down to track design as well. UI sometimes not showing how much extra fuel is left. Cars falling through the maps and cars taking off. Car inside a barrier. An issue where a player drives out of the pits and is only able to accelerate to about 100 mph, while the engine was in good condition. Inaccurate speed trap information from the engineer. People getting placed into empty lobbies too frequently. Issue here is that there are not enough people that play ranked AND when people do, they can only get matched with their own skill rating instead of into a lobby where everyone can drive. Issue with the damage model where a driver gets hit on the left side, but gets damage on the right side. When the host crashes to desktop during a race the positions get all messed up. Hackers being an issue in multiplayer. Issue where a player’s data (saved setups, career details, character) were completely wiped for no reason. Issue where the car randomly stops moving. For example, when going through a corner it suddenly resets the car to track. Spectator telemetry is not accurate during the opening laps of a race. It usually corrects itself on lap 2 or 3. I don’t even know how to explain this, but the video perfectly shows the issue. Force feedback on F1 cars is very weak compared to F1 2018 while FFB on F2 cars is fine. Issue where a player would get reset to track while trying to go into the pits (in China). Issue where the player can change their starting tyre compound even after qualifying in the top 10. Issue where it is nearly impossible to brake at the exit of the pitlane in wet conditions with assists. Issue where the mirrors become completely black at Bahrain when driving in the dark.

    I really hope you guys took the Lobby System feedback under serious advisement. Though the new content will be welcomed, it wont be enough to rally players around the game. Even if Season 2's content has to be delayed, difficult choices are needed if CM wants to right the ship at this point.

    Hey all, As mentioned in many threads on here, Discord and the social channels, I've been relaying your feedback to the GRID team on a daily basis regarding what you'd like to see added or changed. The most common subjects raised by players, which I'll give an update on here, are: - Addition of open/public lobbies into multiplayer - Removal or adjustment of AI in multiplayer A lot of tests, discussions and strategies are being outlined to see what the team can do about both of these. There is no intention whatsoever at this stage to not address these two topics. Here's the latest news I have: - Addition of open/public lobbies into multiplayer - There's a big internal push to find a way to bring this into GRID - probably moreso than any other addition outside of the slated post-launch content. To make this happen, it would require a lot of time, resources and workload, putting other tasks on the back-burner. Because of all that, the relevant staff here are 'costing up' what it would take to make this happen, the pros and cons it would create, and the projected timeline. If it were to happen, an early estimate of when it would arrive in GRID is around the second DLC drop, so early next year. As always, as soon as I have more news, I'll be letting you know. - Removal or adjustment of AI in multiplayer - This is a little further along the line. Producers and the wider development team have done a great job to take on not just your feedback which I deliver to them, but also in-game data and statistics, to draw up some ideas to address the use of AI in Quick Match Multiplayer. We're looking at the concept of benchmarking some of the lobby system, so that lobbies are much more likely to consist of more human players, rather than AI. We're tying this topic into a general goal of allowing lobbies to populate quicker and more consistently, so that AI are far less necessary. More news on these tests and a timeline as soon as I've got it. Once again, thank you for all your constructive feedback, which helps us know where and how to steer GRID going forward. We're all pushing hard to bring these two priority requests into the game and when there's more info, you'll know about it 🙂

    On 25 November 2005 we lost one of the legends of rally and for sure a legend himself as a person... Richard Burns was one of the victims of brain cancer,a condition so aggressive that stopped him while he was still fighting for the 2003 title...while on his car in Rally GB suffered a blackout,and was later diagnosed the astrocytoma.he was only 32... we lost one of the most humble and amazing drivers in wrc history...at least in my eyes... we miss you Richard... lost,but never forgotten.

    ok I'll post it again. THIS IS RUBBISH. what the game needs is a online lobby browser to make multiplayer actually enjoyable, not this. does prioritizing on something as trivial as increasing number of laps show how little hope online racing has for essential fixes ??

    Oh come on, we are all in the dark here, even when it came to your announcement on season 1 that you hyped, the only news we got was a picture of paris. Is the studio looking at implementing public lobbies or an option for public races without AI, if they have not decided on this by now then it is how we feared, this is the final deeply flawed game and all we are getting is bug fixes and seasons. for gods sake we cant even adjust the tuning of a car in multiplayer, got to exit out first!

    Hey all, As expected, a patch for GRID on Xbox One and PS4 is now rolling out globally for all players, which specifically addresses stability and drastically reduces instances of crashes and freezes for console versions of the game. Expect to see the usual messages/prompts for a patch on your console imminently. Many thanks for your patience on this - we've conducted thorough investigations and tests to ensure stability is improved. If you continue to have issues with this topic, feel free to message me and @ me into comments so I can assess them further with the team. Thanks again 🙂

    I'm loving your optimism, but I think the issue runs deeper... ...I still think someone from CM suggested a bonus mode where you throw co-driver helmets through the rear window of a Corolla.

    Here is a crazy thought in an official F1 game.. an option to lock exterior cameras. Every other half way serious racer has it and CM has it in Dirt 2.0. An official open wheel racer? "Let's encourage everyone to sit on top of the car so they can buy more paints to look at while they're driving." "Brilliant. Promote this man." As much as I love Halloween, if I see anyone in a lobby with a $3 Halloween paintjob before core things get addressed, they're getting punted. Same camber and toe on every single track dominating the leaderboards? Not a single laser scanned track? They phoned in tuning, FFB, and tracks, and gave the finger to sim racers all while aggressively promoting wheels and pedals.

    Despite Codemasters has an important partnership with Fanatec, in F1 2019 my pad (35euro) is faster than my Fanatec Formula V2 (1000 euro).....up to 1 sec. for lap on xbox one (more traction, more performance, more everything). I'm very very disappointed, every year they try to meet the needs of casual gamers.

    This is so embarrassing for Codemasters. It truly is. If you were to come out and say "We got this deal with Google to bring something special", I wouldn't have liked it, but at least would have understood it. But this nonsense explanation from the "team" is just embarrassing. Meanwhile virtually your whole community is complaining how terrible this game is and how low on features it is, and CM is unable to commit to simple fixes, where they have to "speak with the team" to "see what can be done" to add more laps to races. Truly embarassing.

    ... Per Steamspy anyhow, which in the past few days has ticked over from 100-200k: https://steamspy.com/app/690790 It's a magnificent game, the finest rally game thus far in history (imho), and for me personally the only rally simulator that's actually playable with a controller. The only competition in rally gaming this year has only underscored what a great game DR2.0 is.

    Too bad my friend lost a video of me and my friend beating our cars at ice track. I used to daily drive my 80's Oldsmobile and sliding around the corners with it was fun af. As it is an automatic and I don't like to use the e-brake on those cars the only way to get it to a massive slide was a scandi flick. It looks so majestic when +5m long american land yacht performs scandinavian flick. These was the cars we drove on the ice track. The black one is mine. I might have driven my cars like I stole them even before that.

    Its annoying that the screenshots of Finland you keep pushing out on Twitter looks so good and in the game its a super annoying fog, all the time! Why dont you have fog in the promotional screenshots if you seriously think it looks good?
