  1. Disclaimer: These races are all done in 25% race distance, plus this is a discussion on everyone's SEASON 2 ONLY. Welcome back, and wow my Season 2 is pretty interesting to say the least and got a lot to tell. Last season I started with Toro Rosso but after seeing I scored all of the team's points thanks to Albon being last all the time, I left and decided to join Williams. And at the start of the season there's a lot of Driver changes. Weber already moved teams shortly after joining Williams so me joining ended up replacing him to partner Russell, while McLaren let go Butler (LOL) due to his poor performance in Season 1, Magnussen has joined the team along with Perez who has been replaced by Sainz which left Giovinazzi to take my seat at Toro Rosso to partner Albon. An interesting change which you'll see in a bit especially McLaren. In terms of R&D, this is a wild mix up, Ferrari at the start of the season are still dominant but after 1/3 of the season Renault & McLaren drastically caught up with them and overtook them which led them to battling each other for Top Team, Red Bull were slowly dropping to the midfield and had to battle Alfa Romeo to stay ahead and the biggest loser of the season is Mercedes, they didn't take the fight to Ferrari and instead near the bottom of the grid, Racing Point sadly got no luck, they're mostly at the bottom which lead them to have a hard time getting points. In terms of the Championship, Vettel once again win in dominant fashion with Leclerc not taking a response but still won the Constructors without a fight, but the rest behind it's interesting, with Renault and McLaren top of the R&D chart, they caught up with Red Bull and Merc to where they are battling for 2nd in the Constructors in the last 7 races which was very close since Renault mostly kept their drivers in front while McLaren sometimes race by race one of the 2 either retired or fallen down the field but in the end Perez and Hulkenberg finished ahead of Hamilton with Ricciardo and Magnessun not far behind, I finished 11th in the standings again but with lot more points and even scoring my first win in Singapore in the Rain since everyone pitted and I stayed out waiting for the rain to come which worked out well in my favour, and towards the last 7 races, Toro Rosso were climbing like mad and snatched a lot of points to secure 8th ahead of Haas and Racing Point. Here's the Result list of every race this season with lot of different winners and podium finishers with Kvyat getting a podium to Weber getting 2nd in the 2nd worst car of Season 2, Ricciardo scored 5 2nd places in the final 5 races and Bottas struggles to stay in the Top 10 yet Hamilton is fine scoring points despite his team's R&D is low. Perez, Magnessun, Hulkenberg, Ricciardo And that's everything happened in my Season 2 Career, Grosjean and Sainz are the only ones who hadn't scored so that really surprised me and yet Stroll scored 1 point in Singapore since that was a dry-wet race and lot of unexpected results, and there's actually no mid season driver changes so lucky me. What's your Season 2 like, let me know below, onward to Season 3 since that Patch is dropping with Performance change and the game going faster than ever.

    Multiplayer Car Showcase

    Thought I could start a thread of everyone sharing their Multiplayer Car with what livery and colours you all had created that fits your image, character and/or personality. And I'll do the honours of going first, here's my livery the Venus - Data Stripe. I took advantage of the different shades of blue on each layer, the regular blue as the front base and engine cover (first layer), the dark blue for the stripe and side number (second layer) and the light blue for the tiny stripes in between, halo and front wing but enough to see the fake sponsors on the front nose and sides (third layer). I always use this car when going Ranked and I felt stand out among the rest of the cars in races when going to Theatre Mode. The 75 is now attachable to me since my other number 70 is no longer an option in 2019 but 75 has grown on me. What you lot think of my MP Car and what livery and colour you choose for your MP Car, let's start a nice discussion.

    My Career Mode Summary: Season 1

    And with you now keeping a lot of R&D points when switching teams it's even faster, they might as well go to 2017's way of progression, yes it's painfully slow and won't shake up the field until Season 5 but with reg changes it's the perfect way to balance the R&D system.
  5. Starting a series based on my Career Mode experience with only talking one season per topic so hope to share your experiences and for this I'm covering Season 1 ONLY. Disclaimer: This season runs 25% race distance. After F2 my first team for Season 1 is Toro Rosso with Albon as Teammate, Weber joined Alfa Romeo with Raikkonen and Butler in McLaren with Norris. Throughout Season 1 R&D, the Top 3 of course swapped around each other with Red Bull and Ferrari fighting for the best car while Mercedes dropped a little The Midfield is extremely tight, despite Renault being more consistent they build a bridge away from that scrap and catching the Top 3, Racing Point is the 5th best team for the rest of the season mid point until last race they dropped to 3rd worst car, Toro Rosso I had been lacking the upgrades since I been out of luck in terms of R&D spend and the regulation change I had to prioritize keeping the upgrades for next season. Now the actual Championship itself with Ferrari being more faster throughout no surprising they won the constructors with Vettel taking the Driver's title despite Hamilton had a strong first thrid of the season and Red Bull only had 2 wins each with Gasly winning in his home race in France and Verstappen winning in COTA and nearly took 4th in the championship from Bottas, Perez was best of the rest in F1.5 with Hulkenberg close behind. The top 3 teams stationed for the whole season but the midfield was very surprising, McLaren ended up last in Season 1 despite having good battles with Butler and Alfa Romeo climbed to 6th thanks to Weber. Haas hadn't scored since Hungary which dropped them down to 9th and often at the back of the field with me, Albon and McLaren. Williams were upgrading rapidly that led them to getting good amount of points with the highlight of being Kubica pitted under VSC in Baku and undercut everyone and hold on to finish in the points and Russell scored consistency. In terms of Driver changes there's only 1 change and it's at Japan with Kvyat replacing Weber at Alfa Romeo and Weber joining Williams replacing Kubica who had to let go. So if you're wondering how Alfa performed well because Weber scored almost all of their points but enough to hold on 6th thanks to Kvyat picking up where Weber left off and by partnering with Williams, Weber still scored for the remaining 5 races with them to secure 7th in the constructors. The only one who hadn't scored in Season 1 is Albon who was always at the back being nowhere near the points which led to me scoring all of Toro Rosso's points. That's how I summarize my Season 1 Career Mode so what are your's? Onward to Season 2!
  6. Just an idea can we have an option for how long we want our highlight reel would go from 1 minute to 5 minutes cause there's some parts of my races where something happen that's leading to the next but gets cut just to fit 60 seconds and I would kindly ask if we could have the option to set how long we want our highlight reels to last?
  7. I saw a vid with the Number select screen and found 2 numbers missing. I'm guessing the Career drivers Weber and Butler will be using them, real shame since 70 is my go to number since Kimi and Valtteri too both 7 and 77 respectively, now I'm gonna struggle the most when I get F1 2019, choosing a driver number lol

    CE-34878-0 Problem

    Somehow it was the Save File that was causing the issue, it somehow got corrupt and had to start new. Can't believe this happened cause I was just gonna finish Career Mode all seasons, but that's not gonna happen. Not when F1 2019 comes around soon. Least my Online Rank is still here.
