  1. I don't think AI mistakes have been taken out the game. I've done 2 50% races on driver career since the 1.10 patch and in both races AI did make mistakes. The one I remember was Gasly spinning out on the last corner of Zaandvoort and left the track, he came back on but caused Stroll to swerve but he hit the wall causing a Safety Car. It might be that they happen less often? But do still happen.
  2. Also don't use DRS or ERS. These reduce drag/increase speed so therefore getting round the track quicker using less fuel. Just drive on mediums, standard fuel mix, no drs or ers. Not had a problem doing that myself.
  3. Exactly this, I'm playing through breaking point at the moment. But then ill be starting the championship on gp mode (25% so its quicker) before even attempting my team (usually play this on 50%). Although I might try that F1laps link above as doing 3 or 4 laps on time trial mode will be so much quicker then even 25% races with qualifying
  4. I don't understand why the drivers and teams don't have some hidden stats, as an example "reputation". This can go up or down, but it means higher rep drivers stay or go to higher rep teams.

    Thats what I do and it seems to work, fast forward when drivers are only on out laps or in laps. If any drivers are doing a fast lap then do not fast forward or press return to garage.
  6. Just waiting now for somebody from Codemasters to say "by design" like they seem to do alot!
  7. That won't happen. Alex confirms in that video that the races will be played out like a normal race in the game. There won't be any scripts or coding forcing retirements or a way to get the real life results from the point you start at.
  8. That would be my guess also as at the beginning of every season you can choose the length of season and the tracks for that season so you would hope the new tracks are added to that list.
  9. Another point about tyres. In real life aren't the tyre pressures actually set by Pirelli and not the teams? Pretty sure Pirelli sort tyre pressures out. But yeah seems too easy to keep tyres in optimum temp window no matter how hard I drive.
  10. This years cars are indeed slower then last years. Not by that much but by a second or 2 definitely.
  11. It is annoying as a maxed out williams will still be behind other maxed out cars so you can't really ever make the williams the best car on the grid, I guess this is down to the facilities and also the base car being worse.
  12. I believe the 5 second penalty is a flexible penalty and can be taken at anytime, if not taken then will be added to end of race time. Stop go penalties and drive through penalties are different and cannot be served under the safety car.
  13. What i tend to do if I'm in that situation is go in to FP1 then just fast forward the session, then you'll get in to fp2, fast forward that then you are on fp3. I do that on career mode so the track is more rubbered in for the race practice session.
  14. Something has gone wrong somewhere. Its like f1 2019 has combined with f1 2020 so we have some sort of hybrid! Even basic stuff has disappeared, f12020 was originally released with alot of audio names for the driver.....a patch made them all disappear and the list is now the same as f1 2019 (well it was last time I checked, f1 2020 did have "Ashley", thats gone and no I'm back to using "the captain"). I know that it is trivial but if something basic like that has happened with 2019 creeping in to 2020 then anything else could have done.
  15. Don't think there is a ps5 version is there? Just backwards compatibility. But you'll need a disc version of ps5 if you want to play the ps4 disc f1 game. Just check though as I'm not sure.
  16. Its a known issue that if you simulate or fast forward in qualifying then the AI will post faster times then normal. During qualifying do not fast forward, make sure you drive out (do not click straight to fast lap) and when completed your lap drive yourself back to garage (do not go in pause menu to return to garage). The only time I fast forward is when there are no cars on track.
  17. What i think they should have done is this. The lower the team at the beginning of the game them the bigger the R&D tree. This will mean that theoretically, when all teams are maxed out with nothing else to purchase, then performance should be the same. This will mean any team could get to the top first or fall to the bottom with R&D resets at end of season and changes of regulations. So the bigger teams don't pull away, then the lower upgrades for the smaller teams are cheaper so they can catch up to the midfield and the top upgrades are expensive. Hope that
  18. You can turn it off in the graphic settings I believe, only in cockpit view though and not any others. Edit: actually it might be in camera settings, but it does exist as I've turned it off previously.
  19. Thought so! I wanted to start a career with Red Bull and have a championship battle with Hamilton. Few races in and its Bottas leading the way! Ridiculous. Think ill start again with the F1 2020 championship mode instead.
  20. Funny how we ask for some things but its by design and unrealistic so it won't be in the game but they can't even get the driver ratings and stats right!
  21. What is it like on the F1 2020 Championship mode? So not my team or driver career but the other championship mode. If I remember rightly there are no stats on there as you drive as a real life driver and there's no development or driver transfers.
  22. I do the same, even if I have loads of R&D points I only spend a small amount just to keep at the level I want to be at and slowly improve. No point just flying to front of grid otherwise I might as well have started a game with Mercedes.
  23. You can be the slowest, its to do with the way you answer the interview questions at the beginning. On each of you answers just give the generic or R&D answer and say williams see your closest rival. If you answer saying your chassis is looking good then it will be better at beginning of game. Hope that makes sense, it is possible to start as the worse.
  24. Jeff should come on radio mentioning a change of strategy and you either accept or decline. But yif you cycle through the MFD you get to a page which has the tyres that will be fitted on the next stop, then you can manually choose which tyres you want fitted. If Jeff doesn't come on radio it will probably be because the 25 plus seconds lost during pit stops wont be made up by changing from slicks to wets or inters especially in the very late stages of race.
  25. Same here! Also when doing a real out lap you can try and time your run to not hit traffic or try and get a tow on a long straight . The amount of times I pressed flying lap and it put me in traffic is ridiculous so I don't bother anymore with that.
