    What's your favourite F1 Track

    I take it you mean COTA as you didn't actually name the track? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Ž

    remove reset to track

    DAMAGE OFF : CHECK FULL ASSISTS : CHECK EXTERNAL/T-CAM CHECK Start race last dont bother qualifying , immediately plow into as many cars as possible. RESET TO TRACK REPEAT until you've passed 3/4 of the cars ahead of you. PARK ON TRACKSIDE CHECK Wait till leaders are about to lap you then smash them up RESET TO TRACK. It won;t actually help the WRECKER win many races, but will give them maximum fun for the longest possible time.

    "NEW and IMPROVED" Works every time. The last product was never defective, the next one is always superior. Heck if you just tell someone a product is NEW they'll want to buy it. Cough cough Apple cough cough ๐Ÿ˜„

    110% AI = Real Performance of F1 Drivers??

    ...... Unfortunately for us this time the game will come out at a time when we will likely be ZERO races into the real season. By definition this will have to be the least accurate F1 car model released in modern times but THIS time it's NOT Codies fault... Game will sell by the bucket load even if the cars were upside down... Of course the YouTube early reviewers probably won't point that fact out.. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜œ

    How to play F1 2019 with my son

    Seeing as we're all stuck and could do with a good laugh decided to share the video of above crazy time here. My memory got it wrong, girl on wheel shouts GO FASTER FASTER!! GO SLOWER SLOWER! not gas or brake. Poor girl on pedals didn't get much of a go as wheel girl hogged the wheel! Pedal girl at least gets to watch the replay at the end. First time she could even see what was happening!! ๐Ÿคฃ And it was my flying yoke not even a wheel! Oh well this proves its a sturdy controller at least! Also seeing as it's Dirt 2 it's a CODIES game!!
  7. I remember that! I'm from England but am a US citizen now so I keep up with news from Ol Blighty often ๐Ÿ˜„
  8. I presume Codies will include a fairly effective language filter with this function as the first thing thousands will do is to try and create the most offensive teams they can. IF gfx and livery designs are also allowed then prepare for every racist, sexist,political meme in the book to be used on future team names. Even if it's only allowed in career there will be 'hilarious' youtube videos everywhere with these ignorant car and team designs. Offensive counter cultures are pretty devious these days with all their code words and code designs for offensive opinions, made even worse of course if people can share their creations with other users. The game being accessible to all ages will make it a challenge to be safe. I hope Codies have it nailed down. In the old days it was just 'BUM' on high scores, now its on a whole other level of subversion.
  9. Me too!! I had 2 F1 Scalextric cars, one was the JPS and I think the other was a McClaren, but this was mid seventies so my memory is not so clear!

    Ah ok do you have another email you can put in your profile quick so you get emails from Codies again? You will have to create a new one maybe on Gmail it could just be for here if you wanted or any online forum usage. You WILL need a working email to get your beta code if you are accepted.

    A little tornado following you on track would work. As it closer the car would start to shake and lose traction at the rear end. Maybe it falls behind as long as you complete sectors the same as the ghost and catches you up when you make mistakes! Maybe we've just come up with a pretty cool new training mode to learn new tracks and advanced driving!? The tornadette would of course perform at the same ai level you selected so you could raise the ai until you found a level that suited you. I can imagjne future Reddit threads already "anyone else love /hate that dang F1 Torny Test?!?" ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜Ž Lando would love it of course!

    F1 2021 CRAZY GHOST JETSKI EDITION..... ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿคฃ
  15. sloppysmusic

    Codemasters a bit disconnected.

    Maybe I just dreamed up a new race mode? You start on a random track and have to drive the same as ghost car that starts with you and shows you were to turn and starts off slow but every lap gets faster and faster encouraging you to drive better and faster of course. To be more exciting I think it must also include something like a wicked rain cloud that starts right behind you dumping rain on the track. If you can't drive fast enough of course the track becomes wet making it a nightmare (!) to keep up with the ghost. Would have to be called NIGHTMARE mode of course and credit my original nightmare!! Codies you can have it for free... Take it... Take it... Please!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ‘ป Yeh it was a crazy dream..... Or WAS it?!? Who's to say I'm still or ever WAS sane?! Don't say I didnt warn ya mate! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Wow. I just woke from a REAL afternoon nightmare where one of the segments was where I was being chased by some malevolent family first on jetskis then F1 cars where the driver was on my side but somehow I was also in the car controlling it. The track was crazy wide with huge banked turns and one long track.. Whenever the bad guy /presence would get close I would drive my butt off then somehow find myself AHEAD detached from the actual car like in a ghost and then lose power unless he caught up and we merged again. Of course he was dead slow and and the 'bad thing' was right on his tail as he kept crashing into the walls and getting slowed down.. Meaning they were catching me up as well... Then he finally caught up with my powerless ghost car and we merged. So then i laid the power down again but this time HE zoomed off ahead while my slow ghost was chugging along feet ahead of the terror behind. Turned out the bad guys were a freaky crazy homicidal family.. They had a giant (15 foot tall!) brother who was a bit simple and they tied me to him and threw us both of a cliff.. As we tumbled (in slow mo of course thank you nightmare!!) I remember praying we'd land on him so I'd be OK cos he was so big. We did and then I tried to untangle myself from him and run away at the same time the older brother was loading some kind of crossbow and their sister was just walking around me all crazy begging me to put on some kind of protective suit like a sleeping bag but she was so lala I didn't trust her.. Everytime I got away from them they would laugh and clap using a megaphone and say well done sir then talk amongst themselves whether they should let me go and maybe try again another time. I got back to my house somehow on the river (not in real life) and I remembered the jetski they had given me at the start as a prize in a competition so raced to the boathouse to escape on it. When I got there I found some kind of pit crew working on it in pieces! I was screaming just out the engine back in don't worry about all the extras I need to go now!!.. And they started to have a slow and thoughtful discussion how best to continue fixing the machine.. They put the engine back and bump started me (a boat!!) and I crashed through the boat doors expecting to be escaping on the river and I ploughed straight into a swimming pool (which I do actually have) and was stuck again... The crazy family were all around laughing maniacally again asking why I took a jetski as a prize when I didn't live on the water?!.. They walked away from my wretched self and the weird girl stayed behind and said sorry it was her fault for not being honest when she'd given me the boat earlier and begged me yet again to get inside that creepy costume like thing. Obviously being a nightmare I had to put it on duh and the last thing I remember is struggling against the costume as it tried to crush my body inside..... Phew!!! Sorry for being somewhat (a lot!) off topic but I wanted to write that down as soon as I awoke before I forgot. so anyway moral of my nightmare is somehow Codies need to fix SOMETHING with their ghost cars so they don't keep separating from the actual cars causing us to either have to slow down or fall behind. Totally fair request and I bet it's one they've NEVER been requested to do before.. In this way! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธโณ๐Ÿ•๏ธ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜Ž

    List your 5 most recent enjoyed racing games

    @danort17 I have dirt rally 2 sitting unplayed on the PS4 thanks to PS plus. This situation must change today! Thanks for the recommendation! @LSKone I have the truck game /sim too, just have not played recently. I would count it as kinda racing as the faster you do your jobs the more profitable it is? Kind of like rally stages almost! Gonna have to take a look at this new TT game too being a motorcyclist AND a fan of the TT races themselves for ahem 30 years!

    A reminder for everyone

    I actually believe the game will sell in record numbers this year BECAUSE race fans have been starved of real life action. Be prepared for a lot of very knowledgeable race fans suddenly filling up the lobbies and forums! Knowledgeable fans but Noobs to video gaming. Should be interesting!

    I'd like to submit a minor 'issue' regarding the beta application (oh the irony!). 1)When it asks for your experience first of all you can select multiple check boxes, when only 1 should really apply and 2) The choices incorrectly assume that the more experienced you are in single player then the more online play you participate in. There is no option for say 75-100 ai /single player only. The top 2 experience options are 75-100 plays online and 100+ league competitor. Being OCD I therefore have had to check a box that doesn't actually tell the truth! While playing normally I ONLY play career or single player but at a high level depending on the team I'm with. So I've checked the top 2 as the offline description is accurate for me despite the online portion not being accurate at all. In the beta I would definitely do online as well as offline as I'd expect some fair competition from other testers (unless of course we were deliberately testing the penalty system!). I'd suggest if it's not too late that the beta app showed TWO experience questions, one for single player and one for online. My accurate answers to those questions would be single player 75-105 ai in depth career experience and total noob/beginner for online (please be gentle with me!) Sorry don't mean to be pedantic regarding the actual application (the need to suggest improvements is itching to get going!) I just didn't want the info I gave to be inaccurate regarding my online experience, which it is. Good luck Barry with your first major testing here, I'm sure all those league races you ran will come in handy! Look forward to testing with you online if selected. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Ah thanks Barry! My tablet view was restricted. I will have to make sure to check the correct boxes as I noticed the moment I switched to F1 2020 the wrong boxes were clicked on, ie multiplayer when it should read single player for me. Thanks will fix that now! ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Where do I edit the info? I see no check box just last year's info?

    There seems to be no way to edit the info at least on my tablet. Here is Screenshot with game already selected from last year. There is no edit button I can see. Excuse me if I'm being slow it's still early for me! Dang can't upload it yet.

    @BarryBL He bud, if you applied before are you automatically applied every year unless you cancel? Reason I'm asking is that I just went to sign up again and at the top of the beta section was a question similar to "do you wish to participate in beta testing?" My answer from last year was already there as "yes" so if actually do nothing this year will it still count as an application? I'm definitely OK with participating again was just checking!
