    To maintain a balanced diet!!
  2. Not too bad a lineup; a lot of changes though - of the real teams only 6 drivers have remained out of 20; mental!!. Verstappen being the only real issue I would have there in all honesty. Potentially an issue with Albon at Haas from Red Bull - he's probably not quite good enough for RB but not bad enough for Haas, lol. Seems like the transfers are a domino effect triggered by a retirement or you poaching an existing driver. Why? Why can't a team give a new driver a go (from F2) rather than poaching from another team or that team/driver saying no to them and not move? Why does acclaim not really mean anything for AI drivers - I'm talking Verstappen here as surely Williams don't have the facilities Max would demand there? It's all a bit strange!

    Timing Tower with 20 drivers

    It's certainly a nice idea and ties in to the argument of the official graphics. I would prefer the option to be able to define how many I want in the tower and also to be able to hide and unhide it on the fly while racing; maybe even a hide, full or minimal mode a bit like Apple iTunes player - full would be the full defined tower and minimal could be you and the driver in front/behind. Would be quite annoying and a lot of clutter having the full tower on all race. Better yet, maybe a combo tower - top part showing the top 10 and then if I am outside top 10, the lower part showing me and driver ahead and behind so if I am say 17th, it would show 1-10, then a small step under showing 16, me, 18. To be honest there's just so much they could do with the tower to make it better. For instance, for qualifying I really want the official graphics that shows the full tower and the knockout zones for Q1 and Q2 as well as difference to being safe if I'm in the KO zone. A big thing in my book is being able to only show the abbreviated 3 character name of the drivers - small change but big impact when it comes to reducing clutter.

    1.07 patch - is this legit?

    Exactly, nicely put! I can imagine most reducing the difficulty just to catch those pesky Mercs post-update! haha. Just unreal how dominant they are in this era of F1. Crazy good.

    😩 Oh. My. God.

    Codemaster have improving engine failture

    I agree some kind of mechanical failure would be good to have although they'd have to be careful how it's done as you wouldn't want it too often and it will annoy people if they are having a good race and it happens. People will be calling it out as scripting like in Fifa.

    Track Limits and Penalty System(Multiplayer)

    Ah OK I get what you're saying and yes the track limits could be better if it followed real world for a lot of people but that changes from race to race and so Codies would have a tough time following what they decide each weekend and updating the game. Strict is fine because you can see where the limit is so drive within it. The penalty system does need some work to judge how much time is/could be gained to properly initiate warnings/penalties. That's the issue in my mind. I also agree with you about warnings/penalties for track limits shouldn't really be affecting safety rating. That's daft IMO. Maybe a major corner cut perhaps but even then that's debatable.

    Track Limits and Penalty System(Multiplayer)

    Completely disagree. Don't care what corner it is but if you cut it with 4 wheel outside the track line however little, you should get a warning/penalty. Corner cutting is a big no no from me. It's track extensions that should allow leniency but only when you do not gain out of doing so. If you gain in some way, a warning/penalty is justified.

    Bring Hülkenberg in MyTeam-Career

    Oh god it's another, "The new tracks should be in game" post but with drivers instead! 🤦

    Cant change ERS on Quualifying

    Not quite correct. Qualifying you can only use none (0) or Hotlap (2). Medium (1) is only used in the race along with OT (3). Practice you can use all 4 so you can test both qualifying (0 and 2) and race (1 and 3). Race day you cannot switch to none (0). It automatically switches to 0 for you in the pitlane when you pit but I do not believe it does this under SC and believe it stays in medium (1).

    My team r&d

    Also just noticed that the rush option for R&D is the exact same R&D cost as just the normal decelopment but is only percentage failure that is increased. I say rushing development should cost more R&D points and also money here to simulate paying overtime as well as the increase chance of failure due to overworked workers.

    Equal cars on multiplayer

    Yep like rage said. I believe David Greco has also confirmed somewhere that they are all the Mercedes.

    MyTeam contract renewal

    Ok so straight away. Crashes out in Bahrain gets -$30k in damage. Crashes out in Hanoi gets -$10k in damage. WTAF!! should surely be higher in damages if you crash out 1st off and then be consistent. EDIT: now I've watched the whole video, it confirms my suspicions that there's no real need to watch what you are spending. Get money, invest it all and don't worry about any negative cashflow. Yes you may not be able to invest anything until you start getting a positive cashflow BUT I'm sure your acclaim continues to increase and so you can attract more sponsors offering more money so there's your positive cashflow sorted. That's actually quite poor and makes the mode too easy to get up the rankings with no real risk of stagnating at the bottom IMO. A blip on a very good mode and hope that sort that and iron it out. I'm putting it down to being their 1st try at this mode so will give some slack but needs to be improved either later on in this game development in patches or for the next game.

    Is there a way to get race updates on track?

    I think the more and fewer updates are linked to what the type of updates you get from him i.e. everything, only important updates, etc like the option in the settings. The quiet and talk ones may be related to him saying nothing for a period of time maybe. Just guessing here 😉

    Driving into/out of the box (manually)

    No their Cortana voice thing is not supported for this functionality in games. It was only through the Kinect you could do this unfortunately.
