  1. I am yeah, I normally only buy physical copies so if I didnt get the digital deluxe I'd just get the disc instead to save money. Only considering the digital for the icon drivers but dont feel good about spending anything extra to not even get to use them straight away or not have the freedom to use their customisation items. If theres options where you can start My Team with enough to hire any, or at the very least, the cheapest four, then I'd be happy getting this version.
  2. I get that they're only available in the deluxe version. But for the price, an extra £30, I'd expect to be able to use the content right away, not after 30 hours of gameplay. They've added plenty of options for the career modes so why not an option to set starting funds? The more I'm hearing about it the less excited I am about it, honestly.
  3. I mean, hopefully they're just in anyway without being advertised? It's possible since they have been in previously, but definitely concerned about it. I'm also concerned about whether or not we can actually hire all of them from the start of season one. Are they free to hire or do they have a salary? If they have a salary can we start with enough to hire all of them? If I cant use most or any of them at the start of season one and they're models, helmets etc. aren't useable for the player, then it leaves the question what's the point in getting the deluxe version? Would be nice
  4. You're just arguing for the sake of arguing or don't understand what it is we are hoping for. We are fully aware we're not actually playing as them and that its just the face. We're not asking to play as them, we're asking to be able to use their avatar and helmet like we have been able to in previous games. One of my career runs I've done in the last few games is naming my avatar Button and finding the closest helmet design and avatar so I was looking forward to being able to use his actual avatar this time, like I did with a Schumacher career last year. There's literally no reason
  5. No but it was assumed since we could do that with Senna, Prost and Schumacher in the last two games. It would make sense if the AI could hire them, but they cant so why limit the player from something that's been possible before?
  6. They always manage to add something awesome and simultaneously ruin that new thing. There goes my Button/Rosberg team. Why can't they just include things as options is beyond annoying. Its not even as if they'd be duplicated if you drive as them since the AI cant hire them. (Another way they've ruined the new feature btw) What's the bet we cant set our starting funds in My Team either so we cant even hire all of them for season one?
  7. It's not really a definitive setting for how often they move though. The higher the acclaim, the more likely a better team will hire them sure but it doesn't really affect how many will actually take place. There should be a setting like Aoi says that relates to how often they move. Personally hoping there'll be options for how much cash you start the myteam mode with as well. Will be a bit annoyed paying out extra for the icon drivers and not actually being able to use them straight away.
  8. I do understand this but why can it not be an option to allow the AI to hire them too? Iconic drivers: AI and player/Player only/Off. It's great to see them in game but theres still some disappointment in there in not having the opportunity to see Ferrari hiring Schumacher or Mercedes hiring Rosberg. Can this not be considered? Also, are their helmets, audio names and avatars available to the player? Like we saw with Schumacher last year?
  9. Absolutely love the addition of these drivers and very happy with the choices but I have a couple of questions that hopefully can be answered. I've seen a couple of others mention in other threads so I figure I'll ask here: 1. Assuming you've preordered and have them in your game, can you choose whether they will appear or not? If so, is it possible to for example, have Rosberg and Button appear but not Senna and Prost? 2. Can the AI hire them and do they also appear in driver career mode? Or are they exclusive to My Team and only the player can hire them? 3. Are their avatars a
  10. Oof I got 5/7. Would never have guessed Coulthard and Massa to be honest. Massa at least could still be racing since hes around the same age as Kimi and Fernando but DC is the odd one. Not complaining though, the more the better. I imagine they'll add more down the line. I also imagine you'll be able to stop them from being in the career mode if you choose. I just hope if you choose to enable them that other teams can hire them too and that they're not just exclusive to the players team.
  11. I think it's still too early to get a real idea of where he is. All drivers in their first years in new teams are struggling still compared to their teammates. I think that hes already performing at least as good as if not better than both Albon and Gasly ever did despite only four races so far. I think he will keep getting closer and expect him to be racing Bottas regularly fairly soon. Obviously, if he stays at his current level then theres a problem but considering we have drivers like Alonso, Ricciardo, Vettel and Sainz, all fantastic drivers still getting up to speed I dont think Perez is

    Absolutely. By adding the seven iconic drivers in it shows its definitely possible and it wouldnt take much to let us add our own. I'd definitely add any F1 drivers from the last few seasons as well as some F3 drivers. I imagine we'll end up with more than the iconic seven being released in packs.

    As well as reserve drivers, they could go a step further and allow us to give our avatars AI stats (and allow us to edit other drivers) and add them to the driver pool. I'd create an uncanny valley Hulkenberg to add to my career mode straight away!
  14. 700 staff aren't solely working on tracks for an unreleased game. It's most likely a similar number of people. DLC is also completely different since that is the sole focus and not the rest of the game as well. They also havent had a full year, they've had since the tracks were announced on the calendar which wasn't long ago. Say what you like about them being raced at last year, but they weren't on this years calendar originally so there wasn't reason to work on them. Or are they expected to preemptively add a bunch of tracks just in case they might get included while getting additional
  15. Plus he could realistically still be racing so he wouldn't look out of place in game. One of the big reasons I think him and Button will be two of them.
