  1. I’m pretty convinced the ai do not use custom setups. I’m currently doing Monaco in driver career mode at 103 AI and they consistently reach 175+ mph through the speed trap. Running 7-11 wings I can only reach 166 mph using Rich/Overtake no matter how good of an exit I get out of Portier. I had the same problem while doing the Full F2 season that precedes starting your F1 career. In the F2 race, the ai would run away from me down the front and back straight but I’d have to lift off or even brake through the tight twisty bits to keep from running over the AI. Sector 3 was a nightmare! I h
  2. The real problem IMO is that you cannot map your ERS deployment in any way. Even being in Medium for an entire lap and not using the overtake button at all in the race, I’ve found myself running out of ERS on the way to the Start/Finish line. Same thing in qualifying, you run out of ERS before you complete the lap. I’m fairly sure the teams do their best to ensure this doesn’t happen to be sure they’re getting the best run down the longest straights and not wasting ERS on the tighter twistier sections. I will also freely admit I was one of the ones who truly enjoyed micromanage the ERS and
  3. I’ve had this same issue on PC, for me it’s just the BB that changes to 50%. This only happens to me if I try to use my hot key to adjust the BB before I’ve opened the MFD on track in a session. So if I say start FP1 and after I leave the garage I open the MFD then close it, I can then adjust the BB as normal for the rest of the session without having to repeat this process again. To me it doesn’t seem as if the setup is off in anyway (also pretty sure the balanced default setup uses 60% BB so I’m pretty sure it’s not reverting the entire setup). Does this sound the same as your experience
  4. Or how to use the pit limiter haha!
  5. My usual run plan looks something like this: FP1: Track ACC-Hards (First Set) Tire Wear-Mediums (First Set) Fuel-Mediums (Same tires as above) Race Pace-Hards (Same tires as above) FP2: Race Pace-Mediums (Second Set) Qualifying Sim-Softs (First Set) ERS-Softs (Same tires as above) FP3: Race Pace-Softs (Second Set) Qualifying Sim-Softs (Third Set) To build my setup I start off in TT to get comfortable with the circuit and form a baseline setup. Then at the start of FP1 I use the track acclimatization program
  6. I think part of it is the projected strategies in game don’t take into account things like traffic, how difficult it is to overtake and how much time it’ll cause you to lose. In a perfect world a 2-stop may be faster if not for the aforementioned obstacles. The ai seem to just go with the default pit strategies in my experience. I’ve had some times where I’ve done the race strategy practice programs on all 3 tire compounds or even just the medium one and when I switch from the projected to personalized strategies it switches from a 2-stop to a 1-stop. If only the ai could do the same then
  7. There is no mandatory pit stop during the sprint race. I’ve done every sprint race up to Britain without having to stop aside from at Austria when the session started out on full wets and dried up about 25% of the way through the race. I’ve had a couple races where a few ai have made a stop by they just end up finishing at the back since the softer tires are always used. Try doing the race pace practice program and see if this opens up a no stop for you in the sprint race. I’ve also been doing 100% races but this shouldn’t make much difference unless your locking up and losing the backend
  8. 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.
  9. Me too my friend. It being one of the key features that warranted the additional $200 over the CSL Elite LC pedals. I also loved the feature on 2018 even if it was only on the brake pedal. But no need to re-open the wound more than necessary to answer OP’s question. There are bigger issues to sort. Maybe they can just make it an option, make it an assist for all I care, for use to decide how we use it for next year.
  10. Only with TC and ABS assists turned on. We had a pretty big discussion about this when the game first came out. Then one of the devs came on and confirmed the pedals only vibrate with the assists turned on and it was a choice they made.
  11. Any chance this would work with a regular PS4? Saving up for PC components so not really looking to buy a new PS4 but would be nice to have for right now.
