  1. You mean you won the championship at race 16 out of 21 in the season, for example? You don't get to use the #1 until the following season - you have to continue with your current number until the end of the current season.
  2. Welcome! I have a couple of comments - like you, I've been playing the F1 201x versions for a couple of years, sort of knew the tracks, did OK at 70% - 80% range, but didn't play a whole lot. Last winter, I started playing F1 2019 more seriously, then my Thrustmaster steering wheel lost the feedback (broke). I replaced the setup with a Fanatec setup in April, and have been playing a LOT of 2019, then F1 2020, since then - I'm competitive at 100% lately. I figure the Fanatec setup allowed me to add 5% to the difficulty, mostly due to the load cell brakes and the better feel they prov
  3. I believe there are two different low fuel challenges - one is to do a lap with a low fuel level; the other is to do a lap with low fuel consumption, and can only be done on the practice fuel usage test where you need to score purple to complete the challenge. Read the wording on the challenge carefully!
  4. I agree with Sir_Overtakesalot, and this might be an appropriate place for this thread - it's not a bug, it's a hack/cheat/exploit. It is absolutely true that a couple of the last weekly events have had hackers at the top of the leaderboards; they're qualifying times are a couple of seconds ahead of all the legitimate qualy times, and their final results are over-inflated as well. It would be nice for CodeMasters to indicate what they're doing to eliminate or prevent this - at the least, they could have a person review the leaderboard results for each of PS4, XBox, and PC weekly events
  5. The invitational events use your AI difficulty from your last race in the series, whether it's My Career or My Team - so if you last raced at 100 AI, then the Invitational event will have AI 100 difficulty too. In some cases, depending on the car they give you to drive and the challenge, that can be really difficult. If that's the case, you need to lower your AI difficulty before you enter the Invitational event, because it doesn't give you the opportunity when you cut in to the Invitational event.
  6. No, I get his question - I always choose DX12, but I have to at a minimum click to confirm - it WOULD be nice for it to remember your selection or to be able to tell it to start with one or the other, instead of having to pick and click every time.
  7. This year's game has been extremely stable with DX12. Probably the equivalent of last year's game with DX11? What's the basis for your concern, that last year's game wasn't as stable with DX12? Have you tried F1 2020 with DX12 yet, or are you just assuming it will crash more often than with DX11? Your post does not make it clear at all.

    One comment - pause the video just before or after the point where the car lurches - all the flags on top of the paddock building to your right are pointed straight towards you, in line with the straight... If there was any wind, it would be a headwind down that straight and it would help you with extra downforce!

    Mouse use PC

    The interface for the game is common between PC, XBox, and PS4 versions. No mouse available on 2 out of the 3 platforms... so to keep things consistent (and easy?) between the platforms, the PC version doesn't get mouse support either.
  10. Which season? In Season 2, I had regulation changes for Chassis and Durability. In watching Tiametmarduk and Aarava's Youtube videos, they had different regulation changes in Season 2, so it seams there is a randomizer at play - you'll get different ones than another player. Another thread mentioned getting 3 departments changing announced mid-way through Season 3.
  11. It's hidden pretty well! (easy to miss) At the end of the season, you get shown a screen with the car, and a few icons below. One of the icons is to change the engine supplier, one of the icons is to change the primary sponsor. If you just click 'Continue' past it, you're stuck for another year with both of those.
  12. It might be my imagination that it's due to the tire temps - but if I do the warmup lap and have my tire temps around 5C or more warmer than the AI cars, I can beat them off the start and make up a place or two on acceleration to the first corner. I wouldn't claim that I'm exceptional at starts (I'm playing in the AI 95-100 range), but I'm doing better starts since I started focusing on better tire warmup.
  13. Not getting into speculation about the FIA intent or how they will implement, but just thought this reminder would be fun - WE have Party Mode in F1 2020 ourselves! Thanks Codemasters! In a Qualifying session, you should have noted that the Fuel Mix setting is not Rich, it's MAX. This is a mode that is not available to us in practice or race sessions. Fortunately, all the teams get the same MAX fuel Mix setting. Well, not the exact same, in that the engines vary depending upon supplier and upgrades, but you know what I mean! Cheers, Gordon
  14. I'd suggest it may still just be driving technique. Upshifting at higher revs drops you into a part of the powerband with more torque; the instant shift and change in revs gives you an instant step in torque being delivered to the wheels. If you watch the track setup guides on YouTube from Tom97 or Jaaames Baldwin etc, you'll often hear them point out where an early upshift is required to avoid wheelspin and resulting car spin. Turn 2-3 in China (your test 2) is notorious for wheelspin and needs an early upshift to avoid the torque spike upsetting the car - try 3rd as soon as you apex,
  15. Curious why you need the controller on at all? I played F1 2018 and F1 2019 on a Thrustmaster TX without ever turning on the controller - the buttons on the wheel handled everything I needed for controlling the XBox.
