    Pilot advantage

    Upgrade the driver training facilities. And choose any activities that effect your co-driver Also, offer them a higher contract.

    What is the Best f1 game ever

    Geoff Crammonds Grand Prix 2. Still have the manual somewhere - the font of all knowledge when explaining what every part of a car set up did and the effect it had. And the telemetry. Being able to see the ride height was incredible. And I used to play with a keyboard. Wonder if I still have the cd somewhere. And a cd Rom to install it...

    Technical Regulation Upgrades

    Thats up to you. Whatever gets completed before the end of the season gets upgraded. There is no advantage/disadvantage to doing it earlier/later. Personally, i upgrade the parts as i get the points, so i know how much is left before the end of the season.

    Not sure what mode you’re in, but in my team it’s on the first screen - the one with the 2 bits of paper and magnifying glass. It’s the one where you can select team activities and advance to the next race weekend
  5. Yeah, fair enough. Engine mode would be the difference.
  6. But that’s the same for all the drivers. The practice qualie run takes the engine mode into account. I’ve struggled to pass the qualie practice task (for 20th) but then got into q2 easily. It makes no sense

    Track situation for F1 2021

    I agree with you. But let’s be realistic - I’m not sure this years game is coded to be able to handle new tracks as dlc. I’m sure they can create the new tracks, but it might mean other features get cut

    Track situation for F1 2021

    So many things to unpick, so much wrong, so little understanding of how business works. Official game: yes, it is. Needs official tracks for the actual calendar: yes, obviously. But it’s not changing a livery of a car. It’s a MASSIVE task. Have you ever tried to create a track from scratch? Have you done any coding whatsoever? The ‘one game a year’ approach makes money. The game engine doesn’t change. Not much really changes year on year, just tweaked here and there. A feature added, a feature removed etc. Something to keep everyone spending £50 (minimum) a year. you want to spend £50 on 3 new tracks and new driver models? Give me a break.... iracing tracks cos $15 and are laser scanned, tarmac modelled, tested by race drivers, all trackside buildings recreated almost perfectly. most with various layouts. most people won’t spend the price of a new AAA game on dlc. Not as many that would buy a new game every year. And as for wasted man hours, like I said the code gets reused almost year on year. There have been bugs from one year, been patched but end up in the next years game. I hate to bang on about it, but there’s a World Wide PANDEMIC. That means restrictions, it’s meant people losing their jobs. Whether the later has effected CM I don’t know, but trying to save money was probably on their mind. I’d love to see the new tracks as dlc, but I don’t think this years game has been designed for it. you can’t just slap something new in the game because you want it. We know you want the new tracks. I want the new tracks. I also want a more refined ‘my team’ mode, classic liveries, less (no) podium pass. But it is what it is.

    Turn off steering assist. Or use the ‘box now’ option

    Bug race strategy

    Sounds like someone damaged their front wing? or you’ve burned through your tyres quicker than expected? or you’ve gone much longer on the tyres so can extend the stint/use a softer compound? or it’s started/stopped raining? a bit more info would be useful

    Track situation for F1 2021

    Yeah, screw the global pandemic! Give me all the new tracks! I dont care if it means people work overtime, or put them at risk of catching covid! I want my new game cos i dont want to be happy with my current one. Then I'll complain that the new game is exactly like the old one, but with 2 new liveries and how dare they make me pay lots of money for it! Why wasnt it just DLC?? (or as DLC) Why are they charging £X for the new tracks? I might as well buy a new game for that price? and why is it 18 months late? /s over Guys, hoping is one thing. Can we please have a bit of reality in this, in that CM are a business and not there to satisfy your every want. Im sure they will do what they can and whatever they produce will be a bonus...

    So I started my team again. I’m consistently getting the safety car twice per race. I’ve had 1 VSC. There may have been one race where no safety car came out at all, but I can’t be 100% sure. It’s kinda game breaking knowing there will be a SC twice in a race. This is 50% distance, 89 AI and flashbacks on

    F1 2021 - Ray Tracing?

    How about sort out the crappy textures on the car liveries first?

    F1 2021 ideas

    Remove the ‘arcadey’ elements - Manual control Into/out of pit box/grid slot. Not having to select ‘drive out’ Every. Single. Time!! also, this is probably better posted in the ‘suggestion’ forum?
