    Mission Winnow

    In NASCAR Heat games if you verify with your account that you are older than 21 you get all the alcohol sponsors and paint schemes in the game. I don't know if they could do something similar in F1 where if you age and location verify you could get the tobacco affiliated and alcohol sponsors in the game. (21 should be a safe universal age though I know international law differs and then geo locate to block in places where there is a hard ban. Not something worth putting many resources into, but an idea that maybe they could get to and explore eventually.

    Flash backs in 2020

    It's not worth the time investment to code that into the game. Don't use them if you don't want to use them. If you have a self control problem, use the game as a way to overcome it. Win, win.
  3. Can you pick one track/grand prix multiple times in a custom calendar, ie Austria twice and Silverstone twice if we want to try to best replicate the real 2020 season, or if we just love Spa and want to go there 3 times in 10 races? If that's not something included at launch, it would make a good patch, along side or perhaps just adding the 2nd Grand Prix at such tracks as a new event that can be selected when making a calendar.

    Classic Tracks

    Yes... Allow calendar changes with the modern circuits. Make it a yes/no slider and allow user to pick favorite circuits to put those off limit from being subbed out. And then on top of that have the custom calendar option that is being put in F1 2020.

    Dan Ticktum starts own F1 Team

    This is exactly why I think combining could be good. Once you feel you've run your course in career mode as a driver (next game?) Create your team and do the team building with or without the driving (sim sessions). Would go much quicker wirhout, so expand available seasons; and no lose progress in the game team progressions and driver transfers. Would feel like a Stewart it Prost career simulator. (Continued play) If you wanted to do a simultaneous owner driver from the start and drive for existing team if it's one mode; just have multiple career mode saves.

    Classic Tracks

    I'm hoping that in the future that Codies acquiring the Project Cars studio (not googling it) that there will find a way to start transferring certain assets; specifically any laser scanned circuits; other built circuits like Donnington Park, Imola; and other layouts of circuits like Barcelona and Silverstone. And then also the classic versions of Spa and Monza. Perhaps next Gen consoles will allow universally some of these larger assets and be worth bridging differences in the games.

    Dan Ticktum starts own F1 Team

    Now this I get behind. I hope in the future they do combine career and my team and maybe extend to like 15 or maybe even 20 seasons to be able to fully experience all aspects the game has. Personally, I'd like to see them add an option to retire as a driver but still run your team and hire 2 drivers and just sim the on track stuff. If the my team portion is properly meaty it'd be a fun way to transition, especially later in the game cycle IMO.

    It's a video game chief. The mode will most likely be fun. Sorry the concept of wide appeal and fun in video games is missed upon you.

    Can the formula 1 game have two versions?

    Looking at YouTube videos, F1 2020 will have the standard physics and handling mode and an arcade handling mode heavier on the assists.
  10. Since we have learned very early that Sainz will replace Vettel and Riccardo will take over at McLaren in 2021; is there any way that Codemasters can code this real life driver transfer into year 2 of F1 career mode (2021 season)?

    Help with Manual Starts

    This comment is subjective to better players feedback but... I leave in standard mix for take off and crank it up after I get rolling or T1 to rich depending on circuit and I seem to do ok Perhaps being in rich mix, too much power too quick and too much wheel spin? Also I have TC, so maybe that deadens not matter what I do. But the way game mechanics work if I were producing wheel spin for TC to catch them I'd still be slow to accelerate off the line as it just wouldn't allow power transfer.

    Dropping from 100% to 50% Races

    It takes me about 3 hours to do a GP weekend at 50% race because I am new to franchise and still learning all the tracks. So very active in P1 & P2; not so much in P3 to save gearbox.. and then full Q. Usually 1 run in Q1, 1 of 2 in Q2, and then just one in Q3. 50% race... 3 hrs and physical exhaustion from going flat out most of that time.

    Practice Sessions

    You can change the fuel load in the car setup screen and go out and run as heavy as you want for basically as long as you want... Just not while doing a practice program. In my season 2 of career mode I'm doing more heavy runs to get a feel and rhythm because I was rubbish in the first half of 50% races.
  14. I have 'pit options' mapped to a button, and I would highly recommend that. From there yes, make sure you have wing change to no or auto. Or to yes if you feel like you are losing too much time, as I've felt auto isn't auto enough sometimes and I want that new front wing.

    F1 2019 Engine failure?? Newbie help!

    Are you overheating the engine? (I believe the game generates more engine heat in rich mix, though I believe lean mix IRL would be more likely to create additional engine heat)
