    Option to turn off Jeff please

    There’s also an option called ‘Radio Verbosity’ I believe you can turn it to respond only, which will keep Jeff from talking unless you ask him a question.

    The most boring track on f1?

    Pretty much everybody is mega at Austria...lol there aren’t many traction zones (AI’s best strength IMO) and sector 3 is basically one big high speed corner (AI’s worst flaw). I actually like Baku, I’ve found it really requires you to push through the corners at the end of sector 1 and basically all of 2 to keep enough temp in the tires to be competitive. Most Boring: Hungary, because I always end up running more downforce than the ai so they’re quicker down the front straight into T1 then I’m stuck behind them for the rest of the lap so I naturally have trouble here at times.

    Qualifying tyre pressure

    I think you’re referencing how the tire pressures fluctuate based on the tire temps. I maybe be wrong but it’s my understanding that starting tire pressures I.e. how much air pressure the tire has at ambient or at the pre-heated temps (100C for the fronts and 80C for the rears) can only be changed during parc ferme if the weather changes from dry to wet or vise versa. Or you may have tire pressure and tire temps confused as this is what they’re usually trying to manage and play around with during qualifying. It’s a trade off of trying to get the fronts hot enough for T1 but keeping them cool enough for the 3rd sector to achieve optimal performance throughout the entire lap.

    21st car on the "grid"

    Now I see what you mean! Great idea!

    21st car on the "grid"

    That sounds like a cool idea for leagues, I’d volunteer to do it. But what about career/offline modes, it needs addressing in all facets of the game!

    Audio name request for upcoming F1 titles

    Add Jared or Jarrod...preferably the first one since it’s the way my name is actually spelled but both are pronounced the same. Also if you could add some more nicknames that would make it better for us whose names aren’t in the game as well

    AI race start and team performance update??

    I believe this is from a combination of the F2 cars not using tyre blankets and the ai using a simplified physics model that doesn’t take their tyre temps into account when computing grip. This is also a problem at circuits that tyre temp management is important a la Monaco or Singapore.

    Gearbox wear rate.

    Not downshifting so fast will help with rear tire wear as well! You won’t be over revving the engine cause more torque to be delivered and the rear tires to slip. I first noticed this at Baku while doing the tire wear test.
  9. Go to the Fanatec website and under the community tab is their forum. Look along the right hand side they have recommended settings from Fanatec for every game imaginable. The have both rim and in-game settings. I use the ones for F1 2019 and GT Sport and they feel great. The brF setting is for people with loadcell brake pedals, it’s used to adjust the amount of pressure necessary to read 100% braking. So the ClubSport V3’s at 50 will take 45kg of pressure to reach the 100%.

    A.I. Slow Acceleration in Rain !!!

    Agreed, the first fix was perfect for me anyway.

    Number one in F1 2019

    On the character customization screen after you select your number a box pops up and asks if you want to use the number 1 the season after you win the championship

    R&D Regulation Changes Question

    Yah since they’re all half price and only take 1 week to develop it makes the most sense to start with ultimates and the majors. And obviously prioritize the downforce/drag, weight reductions, and engine power first whichever departments are affected. Basically the ones that provide the most amount of lap time performance first

    R&D Regulation Changes Question

    No you can save whichever parts you want. Then all the parts connected not already researched will be unlocked and available to be researched.

    This should be addressed with the next patch which is currently being tested. Patch 1.12 caused FPS issues on PS4 too!

    No decent practice sessions possible with F2 cars

    Some problems with that are you can’t get a judgement of tire wear or tire temps from TT so it’s hard to develop a race strategy. Also by not being able to change fuel levels you end up way over fueled by the end of the race with no way to burn it off.
