  1. The reward for using no assists should just be the fun, not the lap time. Traction is the only one that can be argued to need a performance handicap in my opinion and even then not excessively. Like many have said, for the most part, players aren't actually using the ABS even when its turned on. If they're breaking mid corner and triggering ABS then they're naturally losing time anyway as they're not taking the corner properly and will be much slower than someone with ABS switched off taking the corner properly.
  2. Pace should indeed be split into two different stats; qualifying pace and race pace. They desperately need to add a stat editor into the game so we can change stats ourselves. Would be nice if we can change them between races even as an option so we can decide if a driver will perform better for a race (Like Leclerc at Silverstone or Perez at Baku for example) and then change it back after if we want to. Can also imagine our own driver growth or decay as the game goes on. They also need to remove permanent stat boosts since they make the driver stats largely irrelevant. (Gasly actually b
  3. This would be the ideal scenario really. As an option obviously so you get to the end of the season and the game then asks you if you want to change the driver lineups. Press yes and you're free to change as you like including deciding which drivers retire but if you press no then it will work like it does now and the AI controls it. Would love something similar where you can change drivers stats between races or seasons.. Ricciardo for example: end of 2020 season 1 at Renault with 92 pace but season 2 at McLaren you could change his pace to 85 and then back to 90 for season 3. Could deci
  4. Best driver to hire in game is Gasly. Especially if you have tier 2 personnel for Awareness, Racecraft and Pace he gets 100 in all three but is much cheaper than Verstappen and Bottas. Just one reason permanent personnel stat boosts are bad in my opinion when Gasly and Bottas are better choices than Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, Senna and Prost. If you dont want to be op then I agree with Mick and other good choices for the price are Russell, Tsunoda and considering the price, Alonso. (Why is his acclaim only 10 while Kimi is 12?)
  5. Based off previous games I dont think it was unrealistic to think they might be available. But yes, they're not, that's why I said I'd pay extra to use them as avatars as well. The first part was mostly light hearted as I've suggested it a few times myself.
  6. Honestly, I'd pay extra for them at this stage! At the very least I'd like to see an option for the AI to recruit them so we can see them in driver career too.
  7. *Angrily shaking fist that they werent added in new patch* So.. I guess back to weekly requests for these to be added. My uncanny valley Button at Brawn and Rosberg at Mercedes saves still need their faces and helmets!
  8. Weird in my first new save Alpine are ranked 5th and their power unit is ahead of the Honda and Ferrari powered cars whereas my second new file they're ranked as shown in this thread. The only change I agree should be Williams being slightly faster, at least equal with Alfa while both teams should be closer to Alpha/Aston/Alpine. Though I think the biggest change really needs to come from Russell. His stats are too low. If his stats were similar to Norris (as they should be) he should be able to get q2 with the new Williams buff.
  9. Some of these are okay. Bottas finally getting an awareness nerf is great, Tsunoda's pace is more realistic and although Norris is having a great year, his stats were too high to start with so that nerf is okay I think. However, a lot of them are still way off the mark. Alonso getting a buff is good but 87 pace is still too low, he should be in the 90's while Ocon should be around 85/86. With Hamilton, it's the opposite of Norris, a small awareness drop us justified but it was too low to begin with. It should be higher than Bottas. Russell's stats want to make me hit my head on the
  10. The sponsors absolutely add to the finished product, without them they just seem incomplete. The only helmet that doesn't look off is Button's I think but still feels like something's missing. (Missing like icon avatars... 😆) Wish mods were possible on console. I'd be replacing the Braking point and E Sport avatars with icons and Seb/Kimi/Fernando/Lewis for when they retire in game..
  11. He is right.. it's very jarring especially on Schumacher and Rosberg's helmets. It doesnt look as obvious on Button or Prost. I'm assuming it's because your team sponsors show up on their helmets so its left blank for those.. I'd rather they coloured them correctly and didnt bother having sponsors appear on them though. On another note: weekly request to add them as avatars for the player!
  12. As the title says, since this bug (or was it an intended change?), the AI drivers have performed as expected from their stats. Omega Bottas is no more and finally seeing Hamilton vs Verstappen for the championship rather than second place. Permanent stat boosts are, in my opinion, not a great design. Temporary stats from team activities or events however are fine. So I'd like to make the request that the permanent boosts dont get brought back. This does mean that a lot of drivers would need some stat boosts (F2 drivers especially) and pace boosts to Alonso, Ocon, Sainz and Russell mo
  13. Yeah I do wonder how itll work when the new tracks come out. Will we be able to use them for season one or will they be like China and only usable from season 2. Hopefully theyll add the mode back! Definitely! Until theres a definitive answer I'll keep bringing these avatars up😆 My Rosberg at Mercedes career is still waiting! It could be a new thing they could start doing as dlc with adding former drivers as avatars to play and as AI for the career modes. Love to see Hulk back or to hire Hakkinen or something or play as him finally returning from his sabbatical to McLaren. Theres so
  14. Yeah I'm almost certain the teams they're in has affected the stats they've been given. Bottas, Alonso and Russell being the three that stand out the most. The actual cars themselves should balance where a driver is regardless of their stats. It works with Gasly for instance, high stats but his car is weak whereas we have a weak Russell in a weak Williams so its impossible for him to get q2 which he's only missed once in real life this year. It gets pretty jarring when drivers move and we get Stroll vs Russell in the same team and Stroll's got the higher pace stat 😆 About some stats, yeah
  15. Like everyone else has said, they're not applying anywhere and personally, I prefer it this way too. No more Omega Bottas dominating the game for starters. Permanent stat boosts are a poor design and hopefully they stay away. For example, why would you spend 20mil hiring Hamilton when you can spend 6mil and get Gasly when both would have 100 stats? Unless they "overstacked" stats so that a +10 pace would give Hamilton 108 and not maxed at 100 then sure. But the game seems a lot better balanced without the permanent boosts. It just means that some drivers (Russell, Sainz, Ocon, Alonso, Ros
  16. Yeah the real season start baffles me. I was sure it would be with real drivers so when they mentioned it would turn into a regular career mode after I thought they'd surprise us with letting us use real drivers in career! Was a little disappointing to say the least! Yeah that's my feelings exactly. Introducing a great feature but it feels like it's been a bit half baked rather than fully cooked! Which is why I won't stop mentioning this topic until its with the devs 😆 Yeah definitely on retirements there needs to be some level of control. Kimi, Seb and Fernando are amongst the most
  17. 1. Add icon drivers faces, helmets and audio names so we can play as them plus option to enable the AI to hire them in both My Team and Driver careers. 2. Ability to stop drivers retiring or being able to pick how many seasons each driver will do. 3. Ability to manually change driver lineups between seasons as well as able to change their stats for the season.
  18. Nice work on getting those overalls! For the most part, yes I'd say so bearing in mind that the experience stat will affect some of these scores while providing very little for the drivers actual performance. Russell might still be low but that's down to still mostly unproven racecraft (+ his starts are amongst the worst in the field right now) The overall score doesnt reflect how they actually perform though. Look at current Alonso vs Leclerc. Alonso has a higher overall but Leclerc defintely performs better in general even when the Alpine and Ferrari are even. The only ones I'
  19. To be fair, most are okay or in the right area but there are some (Russell most notably) that are badly wrong. A stat editor would be the best solution. Takes pressure off CM to update them and gives the player some more freedom which is always good. Just disable achievements if playing with edited stats. Personally I'd say they should be: (Exp/Rac/Awa/Pac) Hamilton: 92/95/93/98 Bottas: 75/87/92/90 Verstappen: 69/96/92/98 Perez: 81/92/84/88 Norris: 60/92/92/89 (Green Focus) Ricciardo: 80/94/91/92 (Orange Focus so he's a bit behind Norris) Vettel: 92
  20. Yeah, I was concerned when they announced only the player could hire them and then only got worse realizing you cant hire them for season one. If the AI couldn't hire them then the acclaim levels for them were pointless and only serve to stop the player hiring them straight away. Then finding out we cant even play as them in a way has made a potentially fantastic addition less than satisfactory. As far as licensing like Senna at Ferrari, it wouldn't be any more if an issue as Hamilton going to Ferrari which is possible in game. 100% with you on being able to manually cha
  21. Thank you for responding. That would be player choice though. I mean, I know if I personally were playing as Jenson i wouldn't also hire him as a teammate and since the AI cant recruit them theres no chance of that happening. Plus, many would love to play as these in driver career like playing as Michael at Ferrari or Nico at Mercedes. All I and many others are requesting is for this to be included on the list of things being looked at for being added in and if it's 100% a no, then at least we'll have closure on the topic even if it's not what we would want to hear.
  22. As said earlier.. maybe we should get a pinned thread of popular requests and have them all listed out and cross any off that get added..
  23. The stats themselves havent changed but definitely looks like the personnel facility upgrades aren't applying anymore. Since the update, I've seen Hamilton is more often than not ahead of Bottas fighting with Verstappen for the win most of the time, Alonso seems stronger in comparison to the Aston's and Ferrari's as well.. So.. if the personnel facility upgrades being removed is unintentional... can it be intentional please? Or at the very least have an option to turn them off/make them player team only. Personnel facility upgrades could just increase the likelihood of a stat in
  24. I mean, this is just amazing. It just makes me want the avatars more. I'd be far more inspired to win every race to see this! Mix his face with this celebration and I'll never lose another race again. 20210730_215931.mp4
  25. Sorry, just going to throw that first pebble.
