  1. Have a dilemma, set a PB fastest time (F1 2013) on TT in the FW14 at Imola using no driver assists, turned on ABS & TC expecting to go faster still but was actually slower!?! The '92 FW14 had these assists (partly the reason why it destroyed the rest of the field at the hands of Mansell & Patrese) so it should be faster with the assists enabled. Right?
  2. I want to restart the young driver test on a higher difficulty than I had tried previous but don't really want to delete my save data. Does anybody know if this is possible?
  3. When participating in the season challenge there are three difficulties to choose from; Easy, Medium & Hard. Does anybody know the AI difficulty for these settings? i.e; Is the Hard setting an AI difficulty of Professional, Expert or Legend?
  4. Does anybody know what the difficulty settings will be on GRID Autosport? i.e Four/Five default settings with sub-categories or a standard default like GRID 2?

    Underperforming

    Does anyone know what happens if you continuely underperform for you chosen team? Do you get the sack? Does the game indicate that you are on too high a difficulty level?

    Assists On or Off?

    Looking to get this game soon. Is it faster to run with or without assists?

    What A.I. difficulty are you using?

    Looking to get this game soon. Are the difficulties the preset options or the AI levels?
  8. Yes, this is a problem but just start on a lower difficulty level and increase it as your career progresses (AI become easier to beat) Also you can run a full season in GP mode just select the full 2014 championship calendar.

    Driver assists should be faster.

    @NickDahy‌ Yes, I was disappointed when the FW14 didn't have its active suspension modelled, in that respect it drives no different to any other car. If I was going to be really picky I'd say that the 80's cars all have the wrong gearbox also. The only 80's car to have a semi-automatic gearbox is the '88 Ferrari! :D

    @DarkRedslayer‌ I was really only referring to the Williams FW14 which had driver assists in real life.

    As for the driver assists on the game, I'm not sure that they can be fully ruled out when trying to set a fast laptime, setting the car up around using some of them can prove advantagous. The only guys that would truly know this answer would be the programmers at Codemasters.

    I understand that in the game no-assists make for a faster laptime. I was trying to say that the real life FW14 had driver assists and was quicker because of them. Senna tried to join Williams as early as '93 (vetoed by Prost) because of their car advantage and also wrote a letter to Mosley to get the systems banned because he couldn't compete. The FW14 was such a force that it held lap records all over the world on all types of circuits up until most were beaten by the cars of 2004, which ironically still used traction control. To summarise, driving the FW14 on the game when using assists should be faster than non-assists.

    @SpecOps1UK‌ So can a non-assists user beat a driver with assists in a race?

    I feel my point is being missed. "set a PB fastest time (F1 2013) on TT in the FW14 at Imola using no driver assists, turned on ABS & TC expecting to go faster still but was actually slower!?!

    @jacobfraeer‌ I don't use driver assists as the norm but was just saying that the FW14 had them in real life. ABS isn't used on race cars because it was to easy for the drivers, took away their skill of modulating the pedal. One thing is for sure though, no racing driver what ever their name could out perform an ABS system. I personally think that driver assists shouldn't be frowned upon, you wouldn't want to fly in a plane that didn't have its avionics, Niki Lauda said that.

    Driver assists should be faster.

    @pigass‌ Anyway I tweaked my set-up (still not using any driver assists) and went over six tenths faster than my PB tonight. Didn't wait to see where I'd ranked but was previously 350th with a 1:24.322.

    Driver assists should be faster.

    @pigass‌ I've always thought that but it was always used during qualifying too. The torque and diff settings on the current formula rules act very similar, there's technically no complete free control of the power supplied to the rear wheels since fly-by-wire came in.

    Driver assists should be faster.

    @pigass‌ In that case I guess I've hit my limit. Seems strange though as I said before the real life FW14 did use these assists and they were faster. Also when TC was legal in the F1 rules no driver failed to use the system because of its advantage.
  19. Quattro7

    Driver assists should be faster.

    @KuB‌ Yes I see, I use manual gearbox always. So you think that I will be faster with the ABS & TC assists once I've learned the method of driving with them? It a slightly different technique but I do think its achievable, just more practice is required.

    Fast Starts

    I start like this. (it seems to work on all of Codemasters titles) Hold the accelerator/throttle just at the point that all the rev lights become eliminated, not so much as to have them flashing/bouncing off the limiter. Then as the lights go out/green light eliminates, after the initial pull away go as full throttle as traction will allow. If you are using TC then try not to put so much power on as it will activate and take away power from the drive wheels. Hope this helps.
  21. Only just realised that a community manager had voted on this poll. What custom settings do you run? @Hatta‌
  22. @sjsharp2010‌ Yes. We are on the same track here. I agree with you've last comment.
  23. I don't believe this to be correct. You gain medals to unlock teams further up the grid. The base teams stay the same yes.
  24. This didn't restart the Young Driver Test, just enabled me to re-do the event. I ideally wanted to restarted the whole thing and see which teams I'd unlock on the higher difficulty.

    How is the AI in F1 2013?

    You can get ahead of the pack in the first few corners and stay there with defence driving, as long as you have a good out lap you can stay ahead through a pitstop. Best way to enjoy the game is to pick a Caterham or Murussia, start from the back and try to work you way forward.
