    Hanoi track

    I should read my mail. I should do a lot of things, but I seem obsessed with this damned game.

    Hanoi track

    The track map shows DRS zones. I don't get to activate them. Is anyone else finding this is the case? I can't see how you can get a P1 without DRS. Like RosAlfonz, I'm just not making the times.

    Hanoi track

    I have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of laps just to qualify. Going anywhere near the ripple strips is a corner cut penalty. Zandvoort was a breeze next to this. I just can't make a picture of the track in my head.

    New update - here we go again

    The previous version of this game was the most enjoyable by far. This has like so many other versions removed the enjoyment from playing. Grid and Sprints are smash up Derbies again. Why? When we had the chance to race against "the opponent" and win and win fairly and using skill and timing and braking. Now it has reverted to AI cars being mobile obstacles, just getting in the way with no way around without crashing or being penalised. And the physics of the cars on some tracks is insane. In America, there are a few corners where the brakes simply don't work. Some tracks give new pb's indicating that nothing has been altered, so why change others when there was no need?

    New update - here we go again

    Anyone else finding the new position of the DRS button causing unintended braking? It's now much further to the left. Apart from that, I'm not unhappy with the update. AI in Grid and sprint are less passive than before. It's a risk to overtake them even when it seems safe.

    Grid starts a joke!

    A new tactic for me at least, from opponents in Grid and Sprints is that if you are close behind them following the same line on a straight, they will suddenly brake. You cop the penalty and it's game over and a loss of safety rating. I'm also terrified of trying to overtake "anybody" at any time. I mean, we're supposed to be racing! So if I get a perfect start and I'm ahead of my opponent by 4 or 5 places, I want to extend my lead, but the AI discourage any attempt to overtake them because they are so erratic. Often the same tactic of braking to a crawl in a corner. So you hold your position watching your opponent picking up places as you tip toe around.

    Custum car v/s Official car.

    A long time ago Chris Groves categorically denied that any official car was faster than the custom car.

    After update game is unplayable

    This game was close to perfect back at version 1.0. Then they realised the players stood an actual chance at winning races.

    I'm just not that motivated to donate credits, despite my sheer unending boredom.

    New update

    Nice to come back having deleted the game months ago. Looks like things haven't changed a bit. Trust Codies to take one of the few functional and operational features and turn it into a disaster. I don't miss playing this at all. I'm still enjoying F1 on RR3 and it's not costing me a cent.

    You've been playing a while. You've done a lot of racing and completed a lot of laps and only now you are questioning the purpose of continuing to play? Time to go cold turkey. Kick the habit. Codemasters want new gullible players with money to spend. They have nothing to offer you in rewards because you are not contributing financially. So the game is at a standstill for you. That won't change.
  12. I've been playing all year. My enthusiasm has dwindled to zero because the game is fundamentally flawed. Broken. Ill conceived. It's focus is on how to make money now. There is no plan for future development. Every aspect of game play that the community of users has suggested has been ignored. There is no enjoyment in endless cycles of one lap races against opponents who do not follow rules. There is no enjoyment in receiving penalties for the erratic behaviour of AI cars. If there is to be an F1 Mobile 2020 it must be a significant format change and our existing cars and accrued points must follow us into the new year. If not, the game is dead.

    Big update?

    I keep hearing about people being locked out of the game. This has not happened to me. I would like it to. Please help if you can.

    I took a few days off thinking I'd come back and feel refreshed. No. I'm sick of the rubbish that is this game. I just lost eight straight races. I have a very well fitted out full aero Ferrari but even assuming I survive the smash up Derby aspect of the race I am still too slow to compete. There is no skill in this game when you're constantly shunted off the track at any random corner. I don't know how guys like CorsareNL reach the stage they get to, but I'm not buying into any paid systems for Codemasters to deliver this ****. Oh nice. Censored the word C for cat R for rat A for Apple and P for Peter. Honestly? what is this? Kindergarten?

    Big update?

    The FAQ won't load for me. It's blank, so I'm in the dark. But I'm still in shock coming back from RR3 where the racing was free flowing instead of this penalty, slow, corner cut, slow, rammed off track, slow, touched a butterfly, extra slow.
