    Very interesting, mate. I've never used a pad - only a wheel, but I've always found that the setups used by say the top 50 people in the time trial rankings are strange to say the least. Using a front wing of 1 and a rear wing of 10 and balancing out the aero imbalance with weight is a bit absurd, but that's obviously what works in this game to get a really good lap time. I try these setups and go faster, but it is an assault on my sense of logic, so I inevitably go back to a more realistic setup which is frustrating because it's simply not as fast. These codie nerds must be completely devoid of knowledge about actual race cars or they have their own little set of standards. The old EA Sports F1 2001 was set up so much better than this game although the graphics were stone age comparatively speaking. If Codemasters spent as much time on realistic settings as they do on the superfluous visual BS they'd have a much better game.

    I for one am very glad I don't know you, and I hope to keep it that way.

    Toggle Delta display

    Does anyone know of a way to toggle the Delta time display on and off during a Time Trial lap in the F1 games?

    Toggle Delta ?

    A shot in the dark here. Does anyone know of a way to toggle the Delta time display on and off in Time Trials?

    That's the answer I was looking for. So a setup of e.g 4 - 4 ride height has a rake built into it already and the numbers don't actually refer to 'height'. That makes sense, I suppose, if you want to keep it simple, but why do they keep it a secret that the car has a built in rake ? Maybe I'm just over complicating a simple game setting. Oh well, thanks for the input, mate. Much appreciated.

    Your silence is deafening, but it's exactly what I expected from you when I asked you to put your money where your mouth is.

    Let's cut to the chase. You have a setup with a 4-5 or 4-6 rake that works just great at Spa, COTA, Suzuka. silverstone or Monza? give it to me, and I'll check it out.

    I'm talking about rake and the fact that any time I try to use a proper rake of say 4-5 the lap times are always slower than when I use a rake of 5-4 or 6-4 regardless of how I compensate for it by altering the wings, suspension etc. It seems that in this area the game doesn't reflect the behavior of F1 cars all of which have a lower front end rake (Red Bull especially). From what I've read this augments the diffuser performance and allows one to use slightly less rear wing. If anyone is using a setup with a rake of 4-6 I'd sure like to try it because all my attempts at getting a good setup with a proper rake have been futile.

    I finally found this subject addressed by someone. I still play F1 2017 (pardon me but I hate the ##$% halo so I stick with 2017) The setups used by the fast guys (top 50) in the standings regardless of track have a rake that is 6-4 or 5-4. No one uses a proper rake where the front end is lower than the rear. Almost no setup uses an equal rake of say 4-4 although a couple do use it. I've tried using a 4-5 or 4-6 rake and have fiddled with other settings until I'm blue in the face trying to equal the lap times I can set with this goofy backwards rake that the game seems to favor. Now I find out that the problem still exists in the 2019 version. Unbelievable. The car handling changes with a proper rake can be compensated for with roll bars, wings and suspension, but the speed still suffers because of the rake. This is really annoying and should be fixed.

    Wheels and pedals

    I'm currently using a Thrustmaster T300 RS GT wheel setup, but I hate the pedals. Would the Fanatec ClubSport V3 pedals work as a stand-alone plugged directly into a USB port with F1 2017? (Yeah I know, I'm still in 2017, but I hate the halo).

    Hi all

    Hi all

    Hi fellow sim drivers. I'm an old guy who used to race but ran out of money so now I just do time trials on F1 2017. It's a far cry from the real thing, but enjoyable nonetheless. Senna is my hero from the past and Marquez is my hero in the present. I don't know anyone in the sim driving world, so I'm writing this in order to initiate contact with some fellow enthusiasts. Cheers.

    Will Halo affect your decision to buy f1 2018?

    No, absolutely not. I hate that ****ing halo. I'm sure in real race cars you can get used to it, but in a game where there is no body feeling and the visuals are essential I won't buy a game that restricts them. I'll just motor along with F1 2017 until you guys make the halo an option to have or have not.
