Hi! I was unable to launch the game since I've bought it almost a week ago, finally got it to work now! Not sure if this will be of any help for you guys, but I'll post what worked for me. I tried looking into the F1 2019 forums since it uses the same game engine and I discovered some issues there are caused by steam overlay, as well as MSI Afterburner and Rivatuner Statistics Server (RTSS). So, I tried disabling all three in my desktop and now I'm able to get past the splash screen and finally play the game. If you use any of these softwares, try this, it might be the solution to your problem.
