    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    Thanks for replying. A solution to this in future games is surely adding a feature where we can edit driver stats ourselves, much like we can in many other sports titles. This would take a lot of pressure off yourselves getting updates out as well as allowing players to customize their experience. A similar feature to modify teams default stats would also be a huge improvement. Again, it takes pressure off you guys for rushing updates out and gives us all freedom in our own personal playthroughs. In terms of achievements/trophys etc. only make them obtainable when using unedited stats.

    Yeah.. Thank you for taking the time with the explanation but I honestly highly doubt they would be still using the exact same code as from 2011 especially considering the entire engine changed between 2014 and 2015. But assuming that were the case, there's nothing stopping them from changing those stats that are working behind the scenes. The stats on the cards are obviously just visual but should be representing the stats that are actually in effect which is where the problem is. Bottas' are too high and Hamilton's too low. It's still just a matter of changing stats around whether it's the four or the ones listed. That being said, there should definitely be more stat categories anyway. Four isn't enough to get a proper balance. Those stats you listed should all be seperate values on the drivers stat cards. On top of that, we should be able to change them ourselves in a driver editor of sorts, like you can with other sports games. Again, this would take some pressure off performance updates while we can personalise our own single player playthroughs

    I respect that its probably not as simple as that, but it should be pretty clear theres something wrong when a lot of players are reporting the same thing. I dont really get how the stats can be having a negative effect on his AI since they're the highest in the game. Verstappen, who has nearly identical stats doesnt have this problem so there must be something wrong on Hamilton AI where he isnt performing according to his stats. The other thing that's been mentioned is that is it down to the awareness stat? Both Hamilton and especially Bottas have very questionable awareness scores.. Hamilton at 84 and Bottas at 99 is a huge difference, and I'm sure the vast majority would agree that they're flat out wrong in the first place. (Again, I raise the fact that Hamilton has had 2 minor bumps in the last two seasons, one of which caused his awareness stat to drop in an update whereas Bottas crashed out of qualifying twice, crashed out at Germany 2019 and spun seven times including hitting Ocon twice at Turkey yet has higher awareness than Hamilton nor did he lose any in an update? No consistency.) I get that the performance updates are finished but both of them should really have their awareness stats fixed. Hamilton's awareness should be absolutely higher than Bottas'...

    Well... definitely sounds like Hamilton and Bottas are using each others AI's then. 100 points difference with equal stats just shouldnt be happening. Would be very interesting to see what happens if Verstappen and Bottas are teammates. If they're evenly matched then that would 100% confirm it.

    Out of curiosity on this.. keep us posted on how the Hamilton vs Verstappen battle goes in your game. They both have very similar stats so they 'should' perform fairly equally. But if Verstappen is dominating then that will be a big sign theres an issue with Hamilton AI. I had Vettel and Hamilton as teammates in one file and again, Vettel seemed to have the upper hand more often than not on pace. Was hard to tell with Bottas as he was in a slow Alfa alongside Matsushita so he should have been winning that easily anyway. Again, I implore Codies. Save yourself this trouble in the future... allow us to edit driver and team stats ourselves.

    Podium Pass

    What? Really? You dont want more zebra designs or liveries/helmets that look like a seven year olds C-grade art homework? You dont want any more horrible cringey emotes that no grown adult would ever do on a podium? Perish the thought.. Yup. Not even bothering with this one. It's quite nice though not feeling like I have to play to unlock anything since theres literally nothing remotely nice in this podium pass.
  7. Surprised there's any right turns to be honest. On a serious note, it looks awful. But I wasn't expecting anything else from it really.

    Agree with this absolutely 100%. They could even give the option before starting Career or My Team: "Use custom stats?- Yes/No". That way we can use Codies versions or our own versions. Hopefully they can extend the driver creation too so it gives us a stats option at the end so we can add our own drivers to the free roster. Maybe even the option to add a created team (replacing livery editor) into a standard driver career where the created team operates the same as any other AI team. They'd be doing themselves a massive favour. No one will ever agree on what stats are correct so by allowing us to change them as we see fit it pleases everyone and like you say, takes the pressure off Codies in releasing Driver Stat and Team Performance updates if we can just do it ourselves. Heck, for fun, we could just have Williams start Season 1 as the best team while giving Latifi 99 in all stats if we wanted. Being able to keep driver stats static in the career modes (so we don't get Kimi dropping into the 70's after 2 seasons or something) would be nice too as well as being able to turn off driver retirements

    CREATE A TRACK IN F1 2021/2022

    This won't be possible simply due to the AI. The AI has to be coded track by track so creating your own track will result in AI being horrible most likely. It works in things like GTA Online since it's a multiplayer only feature. Plus, if they're going to extend on customisation in the game they would need to start on being able to create liveries and helmets in the same way we can in Forza as well as a proper avatar creator that we can then also use to add those created drivers into the My Team/Career roster. (Could be something nice that comes out of the extra EA money if they can add a similar creator similar to Fifa as well as being able to edit team and driver stats as we see fit).

    Same problem here. Xbox. Both Driver Career and My Team modes. Can the problem be repeated? Yes. Play a few races of both Career and My Team and it becomes very clear. To confirm on the OP's post, it happens when simulating a season and sessions too. I can only assume the issue is one of these: 1) Hamilton and Bottas AI are using eachothers stats. (Most likely in my opinion since Hamilton is consistently lower when teams even out while Bottas stays up front). 2) Awareness Stat is giving more performance than intended. (Hamilton at 84 and Bottas 99 is ridiculous anyway. At minimum Hamilton should be 93 and Bottas at best should be 90). 3) Bottas AI is still getting Personnel upgrades when he shouldn't be. These upgrades would be giving him 100 in all stats compared to everyone else being normal. 4) Same as 3 but linked to the second Mercedes seat rather than Bottas. Considering everything, I think 1 and 2 are the most likely causes since Hamilton doesn't perform well in general, not just against Bottas. On a related note... can we just lower Bottas' awareness stat and increase Hamilton's? For the most part, driver stats are pretty accurate but both of those drivers awareness stats are so glaringly wrong. (Reminder: Hamilton, Ricciardo, Leclerc and Raikkonen all lost a lot of Awareness stats for one incident each. Bottas spun 7 times including hitting Ocon twice and still lost none... For consistencies sake it should be lowered based off that). It's mad he's still at 99 yet we have Hamilton at 84, and even worse, Raikkonen at 75 who has barely been involved in an incident in years).

    Several people have mentioned it before without any sort of response. It's incredibly frustrating. I think it's one of four things: 1. Like what you all are saying; Bottas is using Hamilton's stats and Hamilton is using Bottas'. 2. Bottas AI is getting personnel bonuses still despite the fact all AI except your teammate should no longer be getting them. (As in, he's getting +10 stats where no one else). 3. Same as above except it's linked to the Merc second seat which Bottas just happens to start in. 4. Awareness stat is giving more performance than expected.. Again I ask CM.. Why does Bottas have 99 and Hamilton 84? I can't begin to understand what possessed them to do that. It's most likely the first though since Hamilton consistently performs badly and gets beaten by drivers with lower stats in slower cars regularly.

    The overall stat isnt really that important (alot of drivers are much lower/higher because of the experience stat). Bottas needs a massive nerf to his awareness stat. I'd say about 87 or so. It's so confusing how he had 6 spins in one race as well as crashing in qualifying several times in 2019 that hes rated 99 and yet Hamilton and Perez who have had nearly no incidents over the last year are at 84 and 79. It makes no sense at all.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say 2020 is a downgrade as its 100% an upgrade on 2019. 2019's AI stats were a far bigger mess than this. The only glaring problem AI in 2020 is Bottas whereas in 2019 it was Ricciardo, Sainz, Hulk, Gasly and Weber. Although the R&D is arguably worse this year I suppose. The racing itself is fantastic. But they desperately need to give us an editor in game where we can change driver and teams stats to customize our single player experience.

    That was my question after reading the stat changes.

    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    Well good news guys, they dropped his racecraft by 2 in the new update which will do absolutely nothing! 99 awareness still, despite spinning every other lap at Turkey. He's still going to be beating Hamilton every race because of this ludicrous stat they've given him. It's either that or there is a serious problem in his AI thays giving him higher stats than intended. I'm still very convinced hes the only AI driver receiving facility bonuses even when hes not your teammate which shouldnt be happening. Either that or any driver who is signed as the second Merc driver.
