    practice programs laptimes

    Drifting back on topic That's more or less what I noticed and it's utterly stupid IRL, teams do put very worn engines in FP, and I'm guessing they aren't surprized if the laptimes drop. I mean, if you throw something in the water, don't be surprised if it's wet afterwards This doesn't make for very good practice, depending on the level of engine wear, it will either be way too easy or virtually impossible (and frustrating AF) And also, it means that to improve your practice points, you have to get a new practice gearbox every weekend. Very realistic

    practice programs laptimes

    just checked - no, they're not. Or nowhere near enough
  3. Are practice programs objectives lowered when you're running with a worn power unit ?

    Feedback and ideas for F1 2020

    - slight modifications to the front brake bias can completely change the behavior of your car, I feel we should be able to change it by 1% during races, maybe even 1/2% - if you attend a league race and you're the only human player in there, the game should at least ask if you don't mind racing alone, and not penalise you if you do mind (if I'm gonna race the IA, might as well do it in carreer mode with an IA that suits me) - on the same subject, if you're in a league in which you're the only human player to actually attend races, you should be offered to leave the league without any penalty to your attendance rating - there are way too much different leagues, most of them with less than 2 players. Maybe forbid people with low attendance rating to create schedruled leagues ? - the penalty system, I know it's hard to create a fair automatic system but when someone turns on you as you overtake them on a straight... - in carrer mode, more realistic drivers transferts - still in carrer mode, powertrain development should be different from aerodynamics and chassis developpment - highlights should focus on overtaking (It even managed to miss the only overtake that happened in one of my races). The camera used isn't ideal either
  5. You make me doubt, but i'm pretty sure it happened to me when I played on 70 difficulty (though 90 was closer to my true level) and started to win races with Renault Anyway, we're drifting off-topic
  6. Not if you're quick enough, i've done it in one lap several times when I was struggling to find the right difficulty level Off course not, but maybe target times should be readjusted ? As suggested here :
  7. Just like every program. But it's supposed to give you 3 chances to get it right, so there's something wrong of you can't even get to the 2nd one without losing 1/2 second per lap
  8. That's why I usually keep the qualifying program for P3
  9. I do 50% races So maybe I need to prioritize tyre wear development Or maybe pad + assists don't allow you to save enough tyre life
  10. Yeah, that's what I've been doing but I'd like to stop using replays and restarts of possible

    not change the front wing

    I had a similar issue in Baku, not with the front wing but with the tyres I chose My initial strategy was a 2 stopper (soft -> medium -> soft), my engineer suggested soft -> soft -> medium, which I accepted. Then I changed my mind again and swiched my next tyres manually back to medium. And somehow, after I pitted for the first time, I was on the soft
  12. i'm still using a few assists, ERS mode is one of them, so not an issue for me Can't you recharge the battery on your 2nd lap and get full power back for the last one ? Almost forgot, i'm on the pad + a few assists (anti-lock brakes, medium traction control)
  13. Hi ! I'm having troubles with qualifying program in F1 2019 that I didn't experience in F1 2018. This program is supposed to last 3 laps, each one about 0.1 or 0.2 seconds slower than the previous one. I usually get the first one right, but at such a cost to my tyres that I lose about 1/2 second each lap, effectively making this a one-lap practice program. Am I the only one to experience this issue ? Do you push the car to the limit during this practice program or do you try to save some tyre life for your last 2 laps ? Thanks !
  14. Hi I had a recurrent issue with points that should be given for completing the qualifying program. I like to keep that one for FP3, and in the last 5 or 6 races, i've only been given about 25 points for FP3, as if I didn't complete this program I play on xbox one, and i'm currently using the pad Thanks !
