    Driving the wrong way to ram

    Surely the ghost system would prevent them ramming you.

    Drafting or Tow?

    This happens quite often but it's not to get a tow down the main straight, the game isn't that advanced. It's simply because the AI are programmed to follow the racing line so they get into formation early on and stay like that for the race (except for when I try to overtake them then they suddently swerve into and push me off the track).
  3. Have you read the Codemasters frequently asked questions on this subject? Why aren't other players penalized for driving off the track? When you drive outside of the track limits, your car noticeably slows. This is also true for your opponent. However sometimes, due to latency in either your connection or your opponent's, this appears not to be the case. This is because of an issue known as "Rubber Banding" where the position of other players can be inaccurately displayed on your device. If you see, therefore, another player driving off track, this does not indicate that they are actually doing so.

    Dual question

    How does the matchmaking work? Duel mode aims to put you into a race against another player with a similar amount of Cup Points and, therefore, similar ability to yourself. The Performance Indicator (PI) value of each player's F1 car is not taken into account during the matchmaking process. There is the possibility during matchmaking of large differences between players regarding Cup Points earned being matched together. This is rare, but offers you the opportunity to earn a large amount of Cup Points, or have very little to lose. From the Codemasters website. To answer your second question no you don't always play a real player, your opponent can sometimes be a 'bot'. Sometimes this will be a fake profile and sometimes it will be a real profile but you'll play their bot.

    Update 15 - track updates?

    You don't even have to go wide, you basically touch a kerb in sector 3 and you get a looooong 'corner cut' penalty. It's silly and doesn't reflect F1 at all, as usal Codemasters are creating problems that weren't an issue to begin with. In Suzuka or France if you run wide onto the grass/run off area you spin out or go to 30mph in a split second, if they want to stop people going of track why can't they do the same thing instead of the lazy corner cut penalty which lasts until the finish line? At least spinning is somewhat realistic. When was the last time a F1 driver got an engine cut penalty for going wide?

    Try and race in Austin, touch the kerbs in S2 and S3 and you get a corner cut penalty

    0 PI challange

    You need to be aggressive and block the AI cars from overtaking. Once you're through the first corner you won't see them again but weave and move around to block them.

    0 PI challange

    No, which position do you start the race in the 0PI?

    Bizarre Grid Starts

    Russia 0 PI

    It's not because you still get the +6.5s if you start at the front. Here is the official explanation; Update 14 - GP Events - Extra seconds added to Race End Series times When playing the Race End Series, the race timer starts counting as soon as the 3, 2, 1 countdown is over. However, it's only when you cross the starting line that the timer's animation appears on the top left corner of your screen. Therefore, the time which first appears on the top left timer corresponds to the time spent between the moment the 3, 2, 1 countdown was over and the moment you crossed the starting line and entered sector 1, whereas the top right timers correspond to the sector times and the first sector time starts only when you cross the starting line. Since these timers don't start at the same time, there is a difference between the two times. This is something that affects all the players, therefore, no player is at a disadvantage.

    Russia 0 PI

    Russia, ike many race 2's in the events, has a but where it adds 6.5s to the race time. It's the same for everyone so no-one gets an advantage.

    It's a bit hit and miss....
