  1. @BarryBL Here is what needs to be fixed some time in near future. :classic_smile:

    Braking boards are too small compared to real life, I think there is a space available there for a bigger braking boards.


    Also at Turn 9 there is no grass in real life.

    They can't fix real car performance, Merc/RB/Ferrari and other teams don't allow them to mess around their real cars.

    Now as for performance in the game, as mentioned in 9999.. (I don't know how many) other threads, it will be done in near future. They (CM) just need more races which gives them more data, that is used to create performance for each team. :classic_wink:

    Somewhere far Ferrari's engine began to cry.:classic_biggrin:

    There is also the other side, and that is Ferrari's strong political influence within the sport. Are CM really going to move arguably the biggest and most famous team in motorsport down to around or below Racing Point? Racing who?

    So what about not less famous team - Williams, should it be dead last for so many years? Racing who? Haas and Alfa?

    The point is not whether Ferrari performance needs to be nerfed. I bet there ain't a single head on Codemasters arguing they're just fine as 2nd best. The issue is by how much. And if this short albeit tiring discussion has shown anything is that us players deserve no seat nor say on the nitty-gritty developing side of things. 

    I admit I'm being quite the downer here as the vast majority of users all over this forum keep the debate not only civil but also interesting – providing real data and all! It's just that this peevish presumptuous and overbearing attitude of "I should not see Team A on a podium never ever" or "John Doe should never get pole driving that car" followed by a demand for immediate "fix" that ticks me off. It is one thing to point out to a problem, another whole different can of worms to propose a solution with a minimal reasonable basis to it.

    If you're so assured of how things are go on and bet your tuition money on Ferrar never breaking Top 6 on sunny race days with no unfavorable wind nor safety cars or whatever. Apparently elite sports are just that, lines on a performance chart right?

    A performance update will most certainly come. As soon as Codemasters feel like having the data to back it up.

    Most of teams are already made quite realistic performance-wise. It just needs a little fix for good.:classic_smile:

    You don't want to ever "see a single ferrari on podium". Then we bump their performance to what? How good is their car? What is their true pace?

    •  3rd best to accommodate for Leclerc's 2nd place in Austria or 5th best to account for Vettel's 10th?
    • 6th best to accommodate for Leclerc's 11th place in Hungary or 3rd best to account for Vettel's 6th?
    • 3nd best to accommodate for Leclerc's 3rd place in Britain or 5th best to accomodate for Vettel's 10th?

    I'm pretty sure this game is not capable of calculating such things as a one driver hit the setup perfectly, made decent job in quali which allowed him already be AHEAD of his main rivals before the race was started and other driver was completely lost. Ferrari made a gamble, they brought much slimmer rear wing comparing to others to have a shot in quali and have a better starting position sacrificing their race pace. Silverstone is not an easy track to overtake on. 

    Should Leglerc qualified lower, is he managed to be this higher up? By looking on how the race went, the answer is no, apart from force majeure what happened in the end.

    Ok, we now see Ferrari's pace in race can be as good as top midfield teams ONLY under favorable conditions for Ferrari. That being said Ferrari has no way near "podium place" speed but feels pretty comfortable in between Panthers and McLarens.

  6. Bad we lost Perez, he's usually a better driver in race than Stroll. He'd be somewhere in between Leclerc and Sainz. I think after second race at Hamilstone Curcuit we will get pretty good presentation of teams performance for this year. :classic_rolleyes:

    Somewhere late August we may have patch, hopefully! :classic_smile:

    I think the Williams cars could do with their performance being increased slighlty, almost every time the Williams AI will be the last two cars. There could do with being a bit more variance in AI performance I feel from race to race to realistically mix up the finishing positions a bit.

    Williams' good pace in quali is due to not only engine but chassis upgrade, but they still are the slowest car on track in race.

    You'll be asking for the gulf logo next... Or LN's new lid... Do you want them to fix the game or do you want them constantly updating pointless things?? Car performance will happen, just let them get on with it.

    This is not a pointless thing.  

  9. "This year we are not competitive thanks to project errors. We have had a number of structural weaknesses that have existed for some time in aerodynamics and in the dynamics of the vehicle. We have also lost out in engine power.

    "The reality is that our car is not competitive. You saw it on the track and you will see it again. Today we are laying the foundations for being competitive and returning to winning when the rules change in 2022. I am convinced of this."

    That would require Merc to run in low power mode. If they push just a bit not even RP will be in the same lap. But they will not do that as every time in last 7 years, after dominant win they turned down and there was a close race. Then if them and F1 are satisfied with viewing numbers, they put them back on full power and destroy everything again.

    If only Ferrari had had last year's engine :classic_love:

    I'm not sure where the first suggestion came from but note the second part isn't true for the offline game modes which many (I suspect the majority) mainly play.

    Go online, it's much much better there. Why should we suffer from unrealistic teams performance in multiplayer, if offline players can always boost up their cars to fight for a win at any team they want? Should we call it F1 2020 Official Game or F1 2020 Based on something remotely reminiscent of how the way things are in real F1.

    Silverstone along with Barcelona tend to be decent circuits to judge performance on of each team. If Ferrari don't take a step forward here then we know it's not just down to the engine, as aero and engine performance are both of equal importance I'd say at these circuits.

    Let's hope Red Bull can show more pace to make this season competitive!

    I bet Ferrari finish in between of half a minute to a minute behind the almighty Mercedes.
