    what about a fast pit stop during Qualifying?

    I get what you're saying, but when you left the garage for your qualifying lap, you'll have left the garage with just enough fuel for an out lap, hotlap and then an inlap. Therefore if you're planning to come in in the middle, you'll not have enough fuel to go back out and complete your lap and you are only allowed to refuel in the garage. With that being said, it would be good if the mechanics got a frigging move on!! Far too casual 😆

    Halo column

    Personally I disagree, I've seen it done in other games (I think ACC) and it's done really well. It's a middle ground between all or nothing.

    Halo column

    This has been brought up multiple times since F1 2018, unfortunately it's fallen on deaf ears everytime which really is a shame as I'd like this too.

    35% Race distance

    Ultimately this is exactly the reason. Someone earlier asked why not 100%, simple matter is there is not enough audience appetite to watch that length of race. It's highly likely that CM have done their research and balanced this against the need to have a fair/competitive series and 35% is the compromise.

    Does invalidating your Qualification lap affect Safety Rating?

    One thing that annoys me about the "safety" rating. My last ranked race I had zero contact with anyone, yet my rating went down by around 10 points. The only thing that I can think of is I had two warnings for exceeding track limits.

    How many Flashbacks do you use during a race weekend

    None. 'Restart session' however... 😂

    Turning down ambient sounds (crowd cheering)

    Thanks @issueskid. Besides it being too loud, why does it sound more like a crowd at Wimbledon (polite clapping) and than a more rowdy F1 crowd (cheering).

    Party mode ban

    As far as I understand, this is correct. Changing fuel flow would still be legal. What is not going to be legal (potentially) are the teams being able to adjust the engine mapping as soon as they enter parc ferme.

    Weight re-distribution

    I'd be interested to know if the individual upgrades have their own specific effect, or do they just improve a generic "Chassis" value behind the scenes? With different upgrades having different impacts on this value.

    Safety car

    Thanks @TasmanianTiger. You're having the exact same issue as me. I've recorded it too, but I really can't see it in the capture, but while driving it's real bad. @BarryBL what does it take to get an acknowledgement to this?

    New Logitech wheel (G923)

    My plan is to run with the G920 for a while then when that breaks, sell a kidney for a fanatec direct drive wheel base, formula rim and elite pedals

    Ooh, more buttons for Codemasters to ignore! 😂

    Safety car

    Thanks @TasmanianTiger. Although likely related, I'd argue that this issue doesn't completely match this topic as the OP of that topic stated random stutters and FPS drops. The issue I'm having only occurs during the SC. As soon as the safety car ends, everything goes back to normal again.

    Fwiw, UDP telemetry data was turned off.

    Same issue again in Spain.

    Pitcoins and treated like idiots

    It's anyone who has made a digital pre-order I believe (that's the case for me anyway).

    Pitcoins and treated like idiots

    I know that this was directed at OP, but in my instance (and that of hundreds others), yes. CM have identified an issue and were working on a fix with MS. Fair enough, but as I said, it's now over 3 weeks since release and 9 days since the last update, I think it's fair to say we're now within our right to be frustrated. I've said previously, that I have faith in CM and I understand that there has been a global pandemic affecting every aspect of this release, but this goodwill will only last so long.

    Pitcoins and treated like idiots

    The lack of communication is terrible at this point. The last update was 9 days ago. Regardless of whether they are some fake currency which you can only buy virtual cosmetic items, the point is that they were listed as a pre-order bonus and 3 weeks later we are yet to get them. The games biggest new game mode is built around customisation. The majority of customisation options are hidden behind a VIP pay wall and therefore we are unable to access these without parting with additional £. Not only that, we cannot access the challenges that fall under the VIP pass therefore we are unable to progress through the free tiers as quickly. It's now been over 3 weeks and at this point, I expect some form of recompense.

    Equal cars on multiplayer

    I read that too. Most likely in the QandA thread.
  20. CarloLewis


    Fully agree. You'd surely think that this would have been resolved by now. It's embarrassing for CM. We're essentially being punished by pre-ordering the digital version of the game.

    Safety car

    This occurred again in the next race at Zandvort, although didn't seem as severe as China. Problem only exists during SC period.
  22. Definitely a design choice, and one that I like.

    Ditch Hanoi bring back hockenheimring

    Hated Hanoi at first, but did the full weekend during my team at 50% and eventually managed to figure out a setup to suit and got into a rhythm. After that it was quite fun and the race was a blast, even if AI Grosjean squeezed me into the wall in the DRS zone heading towards the hair pin ruining my front wing. As a circuit it does lack character due to all the concrete and fencing, but I prefer it over Singapore.

    Safety car

    I've just had this too. Absolutely horrible to drive with. @Thomas202 Nothing will be done without a bug report so please complete one too. 1. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. - Driving in My Team, Race 4 in China. Lap 14 of 50% race and a safety car was triggered. As soon as the safety car was triggered, the frame rate drops and stutters horribly making it really difficult to drive. I had to pause for a couple of minutes to rest my eyes. 2. Platform - Xbox One X. (4k HDR TV as this may be relevant) 3. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) -1.06 4. Game-mode? - My Team 5. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. - issue occurred on subsequent safety cars in Zandvort and Spain although did not appear as severe as China 6. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue - created a mid session save while the SC was out. Quit the game and relaunched my team mode and resumed from the save. Frame rate issue persists. Issue solved itself when SC ended. 7. What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) - Logitech G920 8. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. - Did take a capture but it's not obvious, likely because capture taken in 1080p. Not sure what frame rate the Xbox uses on captures, possibly 30

    Not sure if...

    ... playing vs the AI or in an unranked lobby. Bye bye end plate. (Unfortunately Xbox wouldn't let me trim the video for some reason so skip to ~1:20 unless you want to see some bad driving :D) https://1drv.ms/v/s!AvSGwN3P7LOd62-_m083Qm8Oo1XL
