    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    Suzuka??? Really? Easily my favorite track. I like Monaco and Singapore, but I also like it when those races are done. For Spain, it's just that last sector that's awful. The one track I truly dislike is Austin.

    f1 2019 low fps

    I already created a topic in technical assistance yesterday about the FPS issues with 1.06, as it initially looked like a PS4 standard issue only I just linked to this and other posts as well just in case it's related.

    Patch 1.06 PS4 standard FPS career mode [ZX]

    Update: Also (potentially related?) framerate issues noted by PC/PS4 Pro users.

    Patch Notes for 1.06 – Discussion Thread

    This might be connected to the FPS issues. I'm starting to see some PS4 Pro users mentioning it now as well (initially it seemed a PS standard issue), but the way the game runs for me now on PS4 standard makes it look blurry as well, and I have motion blur on a very low setting.

    Please stop driver transfer in career mode

    I think mid-season transfers are perfectly OK, they happen in real life, I just wish somehow they would prevent the top 5 drivers in the championship from changing teams.

    Have you ever bought a premium item? (Micro transactions)

    Yeah, that's exactly the issue. It always starts with small cosmetic stuff, but when enough people buy it because it's 'only cosmetic, what's the harm, etc.', CM will start thinking about reducing R&D points earned in career while constantly flashing you with reminders about how you can buy additional points from the store.

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    Yeah Vettel finished 6th in my first season, Leclerc 4th (almost 3rd). I think Leclerc was about 50 points ahead. Vettel just seemed to run into a ton of trouble throughout the season, and the same thing happened in race 1 of season 2, where he lost part of his front wing and finished 10th (Leclerc 2nd). Don't ever say this game isn't realistic.

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    I've tried that for both STR and McLaren and always received #2 driver offer, but they still force the former GP2 guys as your teammate. The number one and two driver status does change for AI teams during the career for sure, as I did a trial to switch to Ferrari as #1 driver and got Vettel as my teammate, reloaded my previous save and chose #2 and got Leclerc, who beat Vettel in my career season 1 in pretty much every category.

    Red Bull still has a Renault engine

    Ah, I must have mistunderstood then. I meant that when in career R&D, the overall engine stat for Red Bull and Toro Rosso now matches up, where before 1.05 Red Bull had the same overall engine stat to Renault and McLaren, with Toro Rosso lagging behind.

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    Ooh, that's a great theory. And yeah, those 5.000 points are massive, particularly because the AI teams invest quite a bit in the department efficiency anyway, making upgrades cheaper. I decided to invest some in the efficiency/failure chance upgrades, and leave the rest for durability throughout the season because I could literally upgrade my car immediately from 5th best to first if I wanted. Also, sidenote: I don't know if anyone has mentioned this already but you can actually choose your teammate through a 'workaround' when you switch teams by choosing first or second driver status.

    Red Bull still has a Renault engine

    This has already been noted before, and has effectively been corrected in the performance patch 1.05.

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    Something I did notice is that, when I switched teams after season 1 from Alfa to McLaren (or any other team for that matter, I tried several options), I always got an insane amount of starting R&D points with my new team: 5000 in total. That's well more than double the amount that I would've gotten as an end-of-season bonus had I stayed at my old team. Could this have something to do with the AI developing particularly quickly in season 2: maybe they all start with 5000 whereas you don't? Don't really know what you mean by this?
  14. Andrew210227

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    That's not entirely true. The AI teams do the upgrades that are available in the R&D tree. It just seems that this year, they also get a lot of R&D points to develop, which I actually like. I just think that the impact of each individual upgrade should probably be cut by 50%.

    This is how ERS should work like in real life

    It’s likely they were both just using overtake at various time, and resetting. Usually drivers don’t change these settings corner by corner. They do change their diff settings a lot though.

    Devon Butler is OP

    I think they’re pretty much the same. In my career S2 Williams (Weber) is still the worst team with the worst engine & aero (by far) but one of the best chassis. Weber qualified 8th in the first race. I’ve already noted in some other threads that this i going to be a problem when they have an upper midfield car, they may challenge for victories then.

    Driver Transfer Question

    They always happen regardless of which route you take.

    Race setup VS Time trial setup

    Not a chance in hell you’ll be able to take Ferradura flat. What I do (no TC) is turn in early, shift down gently from 7th to 5th and let it roll. Easy on the throttle and almost immediately shortshift back up to 6th as you’re about to exit the corner. Just don’t take too wide a line through there and you should be fine. Here’s a link from my qualifying run in career. https://youtu.be/t5rQa-l9U_k

    Devon Butler is OP

    Racing Point are the fastest in a straight line. Combined with Monza & Butler generally being really quick this doesn’t really shock me.

    Have you ever bought a premium item? (Micro transactions)

    I’ll judge. So should you. There’s literally not a single viable reason why some items that are in a fullprice game at launch are locked behind a paywall. None.
  21. Maybe it’s certain tracks only? I’m at Bahrain and it’s constantly well below 60. I know the game doesnt really run at a constant 60 anyway, but now it’s so jarring that I had to quit the game mode.
  22. Career mode? Which track?
  23. I wasn’t aware of that, thanks for adding.

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    Haven’t tried Hockenheim but I just did full wet at Spa and though challenging, after getting in the groove it’s actually fine. No assists 105.

    Esteban Ocon

    Yes, somewhere around June would be my guess.
