  1. that's why I preferred to go for now to short quali instead of a full quali. This way you "fix" this thing, although you create another problem, which is eliminating the chance that someone runs on Mediums for Q2 and starts on Mediums. The whole grid will be on soft! Disappointing. Whatever you do it's just bad.
  2. Have you ever thought that maybe some problems are not easy fix or cannot be fixed at all with just a patch? The game is far from perfect, I agree on that, let alone the driver transfers mess, but what game is perfect?

    Career mode is now broken!

    they should just get rid of those 5000 points given when you transfer to another team. I noticed that the team that had most transfers during the 2 seasons I played so far, are the ones that are highest in the R&D now (almost maxed out). I came to the conclusion that is not a coincidence.

    Race start

    I want to add to this saying that if you start with, for example, +2 laps of fuel, you'll get passed by everyone around you. If you start with something like +0.5 lap of fuel then you'll get a better start. This is MY experience.

    Anyone use mirrors in cockpit?

    habemus papam!

    My full practice programme

    Hi all, wow, what a variety! I was still doing all I could in FP1, leaving only Race Pace for FP2 and Qualifying Sim for FP3. I do this mostly to preserve engine and gearbox (FP3 you have to use the race gearbox). At best I was (sometimes) running Race Pace program twice, with two different compounds just to see if I could drive fast enough with the Hard and make a 1 stop strategy. Could you guys please point out to me what are the flaws of my way of going through FP sessions? I mean what changes in splitting all the programs like you guys do, rather than doing all you can in FP1. Also, does anything change if you successfully complete the programs or you fail them (other than getting R&D Points)??? Do the programs really have an effect on Projected/Personalized strategies? Thanks
  7. I checked the regulations (!) and you are correct! Well, you are more correct than me at least...More changes than the usual are allowed when there is a "Change in Climatic Conditions" but I expected much more than what actually is allowed to be modified. Darn, I guess now I have to go back and switch on Parc Ferme rules on my career.... On a general note though, I think this is ridiculous considering all they (F1, FIA) are doing for safety (see Halo, new helmet specs, etc.), still letting people compromising on setup which is crucial for safety! I'm a bit shocked... Sorry for the Off topic
  8. @RaceSpecEsports I filled the initial form, signed to discord and...what happens now? Thanks

    My full practice programme

    what do you guys do with fuel and ERS, considering that we all have only 2-3 engine components and using Rich mix and High ERS has a negative effect on those engine parts... I always try to keep mine at medium. I'd like to even switch to lean/low but I doubt I would complete most of the program.
  10. This is one of the few things I can't stand... The Parc Ferme rule doesn't actually exist if, let's say, you have wet qualifying and dry race or vice versa... Teams are allowed to change the car is different conditions effect the race (which makes absolute sense considering all they are doing for safety!). I keep my Parc Ferme rule option OFF and manage it myself. Dunno what you guys think...
  11. @Marty_K_ Same feeling I had last year with the assists and this year with the cockpit camera. Happy you made "the step"!
  12. I just wanted to share my happiness (as per title)! I (for now) daily read this forum and almost every thread is filled with complaints of any sort. Yesterday, for the first time I purchased a PS Plus membership and played online. I just had the best time! I played something like 6-7 25% races in a row. I was a bit afraid of these lobbies and people taking you out and everything, but I just had a blast! I was maybe lucky to find correct/fair gamers, I dunno. I was even able to win 3 races and end up on the podium in the others! Great close battles, overtakes, undercuts, and all of that! To be honest I was taken out a couple of times, but it was more like racing incidents than people trying to ruin my race or anything like that. Playing with other users instead of the AI only, is just sooo much better and so much more fun, that I am now scared this will ruin my social life! LOL
  13. Hey Alex, sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I tried myself to play online for the first time yesterday and I loved it. Like you, I had some contacts when I was trying to overtake on the inside of a corner and ppl did not leave enough room, so I spun...Definitely not great I have a suggestion, and maybe you already do this, but yesterday I was a bit scared of ppl crashing into me because I knew from comments like yours and watching youtube video that these things happen, so when I was approaching a car from behind, I usually stayed behind for about a lap or so (playing 25% is not a big deal) in order to see where I could really overtake them "safely", possibly just on a straight to minimize risks. You may try this (you maybe already do it). I hope it helps and hope that next time goes better

    Using Look to Apex?

    I use this feature as part of the car settings/tuning, and do the same for Cockpit view values. What I mean is that I change these values/settings according to the track or the car I'm driving. For example in Brazil, I have a higher value for Look at Apex, in COTA instead I have it lower because all the sections left-right with Look at Apex make me throw up within 2 laps LOL Generally speaking I keep it between 2 and 5. Similarly, in COTA I need to have my Cockpit view a bit higher than usual because of all the up hill-down hill of the circuit. I think in general is good to adapt to whatever your needs are for each track/car.
  15. I'm with you man. Same thing, I have developed my player and bought shoes and all the rest without spending a penny, but it's undeniable that they kinda push users towards spending money, for both graphic/visual stuff like clothes etc. and also for vc to develop your player, that's all i'm saying. I still love me some 2K...
  16. hopefully this doesn't get out of hands and doesn't become something like NBA 2K or FIFA where you "should" pay extra for basically everything. But yes, im guilty..I bought a helmet
  17. Oh by the way, this "problem" effect AI also, so it's not a bug, it's just the way the game is...If an AI car gets held in the pit are you going to complain? I doubt..In the end I think that all it matters is consistency, if this effected only the user, then it would be a problem, but it effects all the cars in the race, it can happen to everyone. So, I don't really see this as a problem.
  18. that would make sense. I never checked the ERS status on AI cars, but I have the distinct feeling that at the beginning of the race, and in general in the first stints the AI is always faster than later in the race and I was "blaming" this on their ERS/Fuel usage..so it would make sense if it was just a visual glitch.

    Thank you for nothing Codemasters.

    I like the game...

    F1 2019 - using leaderboard setups

    I've always used the TV Pod cam, mainly because I was afraid that cockpit would make me nauseous/seasick...This year I decided to give it a try to cockpit cam again and boy, I love it!!! Now, even if I wanted to go back to TV Pod, it would be impossible, it just feels so weird, so high and distant, almost detached from the car. I can still improve to match my old lap times set in TV Pod but I am pretty close already (after a couple of weeks or so of using it). I would say, and I know it may sound weird, that the biggest thing is that now I feel that I AM RACING in a much stronger way than before. I also like the fact that I have to adjust the camera a bit differently for each car, which I feel is like adjusting your seat on a different chassis LOL :) Give it a try, you won't go back...
  21. I'm interested!

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    First of all my man, don't ever apologize for your English skills. You are already doing a great thing speaking a language that is not yours and only for that you deserve respect. Moving on, I kinda agree with you in general, I would like things to be a little bit slower for R&D but at the same time, look at mclaren..last season they were dead last, at times worse than Williams, this year they are the 4th team on the grid, consistently! Think about their R&D chart... :)
  23. Hi Kafumanto, Will you guys include (or maybe it's already there), some kind of tutorial/instructions on how to use this thing? I am very interested.. Thanks!

    Major Fuel Glitch F1 2018

    I had the same thing last year. I thought back then that it was something related to the R&D developments (I can't be 100% it's that), because it happened in career mode but only after a few seasons.. Not sure..But you are not alone! :)

    Gearbox management??

    Can't fix it. Try to downshift more gently and take better care of it. When approaching a corner you should FIRST brake, and THEN start downshifting, so that the revs of your engine stay as low as possible. Hope that helps, it helped me massively when I found that out. Sometimes, to try and be more "aggressive" we forget that.
