    Question about changing teams

    Hi @Timmy186GTR, To confirm, when you are moving team you will take the place of the driver with the lowest reputation. For example, moving to Mercedes. You would take the place of Bottas, and partner with Hamilton. This happens regardless of if your new contract states you are first or second driver. If you are the first driver in this example, Hamilton will take the place of second driver to you.

    Wing changes

    Hi @saukisu, I did check this on 'simulation' damage, but I can try again for you. What are your damage settings and I'll try and re-create

    Wing changes

    HI everyone, Regarding the wings, @UP100 is right with the change on your MFD in race if you want to control it manually. If left on 'Auto', the game will decide whether the time sacrificed changing the wing in the pits is worth the time lost out on track per lap. We understand that in some cases even the slightest loss of downforce can drastically affect performance (tracks like Monaco, Singapore, General Wet Conditions) and therefore we added a manual override in the MFD for the player. I've just tested this running simulation damage at Monaco. I got light green damage on my front wing (was never going to take me long) and was not recommended a change of strategy to stop. I manually requested to box and changed my 'Repair Wing Damage' on the MFD manually to 'Yes'. At the stop, wing was changed as requested. I then got major damage on the next lap (again, easy for me to do normally), requested to box and manually changed 'Repair Wing Damage' to 'No' through the MFD. Wing was not changed as requested. If you can provide evidence of this not happening in a video, please add it to this post and I can investigate further for you.

    Any further updates for F1 2019?

    Hi @wenjunyang1990, We are continuing to support F1 2019 longer than any other previous title and are always adding the latest patch notes to these forums when the patch/hotfix goes live.
  6. Hi @Pierre10810, Thanks for the video I've just attempted to re-create this with your settings and the pitstops seem to be fine from my side. Could you send me a DXDiag of your system just to make a few checks.
  7. @1512marcel, great shout. Moved to correct sub-forum

    F1 2019 graphics bug

    Nice to see its working @Spitz29, and thanks for the feedback. If you can, could you post what you did exactly to get it working on this thread? Just in case someone else runs into this issue in the future, đź‘Ť
  9. Hi @incapable, Thanks for the post. Could you provide your Steam ID so we can check your crash dump please

    Hi @krake61, If this is your first F1 game, welcome! I am looking to launch a guide over the next month on setups and maybe that will help you moving forward. Like @1512marcel said, Practice makes Perfect. I've been playing various F1 games for years and I still struggle around Monaco (I must have done over 1000 laps on that circuit!) Stay tuned for the first part of the guide coming soon. Hopefully the series might help a little.

    Time Trial Leaderboard Bug

    Hi @ex250, I'd say take that Number 1 in the world and run with it!. Jokes aside though, could you send me the exact details and I'll have a look for you. I tried to replicate it from your information (track, car etc) and I just ended up in my normal, terrible leaderboard position. What I'm looking for is: A short description of the problem: Platform you’re on (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Steam): Game Version (Shown on the Start screen in the bottom left hand corner): Assists Ran: Any Custom Setup Run: Anything you think could be different that I may need to know: What happened in the lead up to the problem? If you get an error message, the exact wording of the error message you're receiving
  12. Hi @Pierre10810, Sorry to hear about your issues. Can you fill out the below for me so I can look into trying to replicate it for you: A short description of the problem: Game Version (Shown on the Start screen in the bottom left hand corner): Game Mode, including if it was Single Player or Multiplayer (Time Trial, Career, Grand Prix, Custom Game etc): What happened in the lead up to the problem? If you get an error message, the exact wording of the error message you're receiving: Any accessories you are using (wheel, pad, etc): If you have any videos or screenshots, please share them. If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears:

    Classic auto bug with sound !

    Hi @FishyScales When you are in these cars, do you run with your Traction Control assist on? If so, this sound is on for longer. Also, from the video, there are a few flaws to it. First, TCS will sound slightly different from car to car, and will also sound very different comparing an onboard to a 'TV camera'. However, I will run it past the development team to get their definitive thoughts on the matter.

    Classic auto bug with sound !

    Hi @AlexBarrakuda and @FishyScales, Thanks for your comments. The 'kind of grating static noise on throttle coming out of slower corners' is the traction control when accelerating out of slower corners. You can hear this in these certain cars of that era as they had Traction Control, whereas you can't hear it in F1 2019 spec cars for example, because they don't have Traction Control. The sound is there by design and is there to replicate the classic car sounds. Compare the sounds to videos online of their real life counterparts as you'll hear it in real life onboards too. However, if you have any videos of the sound being erratic, please let me know.

    Logitech G920 on Xbox one

    HI @kaleb54D, Thanks for the post. My first recommendation would be to double-check your settings and see if you can change the below to suit your driving style: Force Feedback and Steering Wheel setup for PC’s If you have a steering wheel, the following options are available in the F1 2019 controller setup screen. Dead Zone This setting can be used to create a dead area around the centre of the wheel. If you feel the steering is too twitchy, increase this setting to increase the size of the dead zone. Note that a higher Linearity value (see below) may give a more desirable effect than increasing the dead zone, so consider trying that before increasing the dead zone. Saturation This alters the amount that you have to turn the wheel to make the car turn. Increase this if you feel the steering is too sensitive. Reduce this if you feel that you have to move the wheel too much to get around the corners. Linearity This dampens the information received from the inputs made upon the wheel and what you see in-game. Increase this if you are finding steering too responsive. Decrease this if you feel the steering is too sloppy. As well as the above settings, the following force feedback wheel options are available. Feedback Strength The overall strength of force feedback. Caution: setting this value too high may cause oscillation and an unrealistic feel to the force feedback. Wheel Weight Higher values make the force feedback feel 'tighter' - only small changes in wheel orientation are required to cause large forces. This increases the perceived strength, but removes some of the subtlety and smoothness. Environmental Feedback The amount of force feedback from crashes, rumble strips, and other environmental effects. Please note the wheel and the gamepad are going to behave differently to each other as they are different methods to control the same car.
