  1. Analyzing the performance files of the car the choice was interesting. In 2019 we had a dirty air value of 0.9, meaning you have 90% downforce when following, and a ""drag" value of 0.85, meaning -15% resistance on the straights. In 2020 we have a dirty air value of 0.85, meaning you lose 15% downforce instead of 10, so the dirty air effect is enhanced a bit. Of course I never drove a F1 car therefore I don't know if it's realistic or not, some people say that for it to be realisticly accurate dirty air should be at 0.55 meaning you have almost half the downforce, but like this it would be
  2. I completely disagree with OP. First of all, safety car is an option and it's possible for You to turn it off without the need to take away this feature from others players. Secondly, if you play in proper leagues, the safety car is indeed an element that can let you recover from a bad race and remerge the pack as it is in real life. And also the strategy variation is a good thing, I raced in a league until few months ago and I remember preparing my 50% race strategies also considering the possibilities for a safety car in a determined lap and having B or C plans accordingly, But I a
  3. Thank you very much for your follow up, can't wait to play a full season against the a.i. with a friend of mine!
  4. Name of league Rat Bull, platform Xbox. I think I posted the code in this topic? Anyway when I search by name it doesn't appear, nor by unique code. Thank you for any update
  5. In my case, Bottas is stronger than Hamilton only in myteam and career mode. In such 2 modes yes, Bottas looks like the phenom and Hamilton the mere 2nd driver who dnfs a lot as well. On the other hand, I am currently playing the official season in "Championship" mode and after 10 rounds Hamilton is 1st and pulling away from Bottas and Lewis getting most of the poles and wins. Also the simple "Grand Prix" mode looks unaffected, with Hamilton being the man to beat and realisticly outperforming the normal drivers.
  6. Talking about force feedback sensations, I agree about 2017 being very good. In 2020 in have huge issues in actually feeling traction loss on the rear end, and when I feel it it is already to late and not gradual at all. Although with a Ts base I am able to pull off saves, counter and corrections I wasn't able to pull off with the tx (equal to T300). But I don't know if 2017 had better ffb sensations or just better car handling for my driving style. Traction control topic, I did struggle a lot before sticking to TC off, but now also thanks to this more precise and powerful wheel base I ca
  7. I will give your ffb settings a try. I am a Ts-Xw user which finds a good balance by setting it to 80-85 in game and low canned effects such as kerbs and tracks but I treat myself with a 35 damper. But my issue is feeling the rear grip loss when accelerating and feeling the traction, so I don't know if ffb settings calibrated for full TC would actually help me. I'll try and give you feedback!
  8. Description: I want to create a private league to play with a friend of mine, but he cannot join it by code. Tried two times with 2 different leagues and also tried his league, it always shows an error screen saying that there is no league corresponding to such code. In addition to this, my friend is not among the friends in the ingame invite list, where i find only 31 friends playing F1 2020 but not him. I also do not appear in his invite friends list in his league. Platform: Xbox Version 1.16 Leagues Both wired and with open nat Amount of players: 2 hu
  9. Hello everyone, I have my own list of setups that are crafted for my driving style and for race situations that I usually use in online and league racing but suitable for grand prix and career modes. At the 3rd season in career mode I decided to join Mercedes as I wanted to be able to be a championship contender. But I realized that my setups do not perform well anymore. Understeer when entering a corner, lack of traction, poor stability... I find the car almost undrivable. Could it be because aero improvements are too much? Should I run lower aero? Does more aero impact th
  10. Hello @BarryBL, any update so far? Medal targets are still unrealistic compared to performance of teams such as Ferrari, Haas and Racing Point in example. Will it be possible for them to reflect the car performance according to the performance patch? Thanks
  11. Yes, I saw videos about such cam and it would be an awesome add-on to get some additional lateral view! Also I did try the 15 degree but I think I need to get used to it
  12. By the way Mario Kart features a far distance third person view which has nothing to do with the tv-pod F1 cam. So if the purpose is to belittle tv pod cam users the comparison is not accurate. I would like to drive in cockpit view but the game lacks peripheral vision if playing with a single monitor. I drive with a t-cam with very low FOV as a compromise between more immersion and still being somewhat competitive in leagues. But when I play offline I have lots of fun in cockpit view
  13. Yes, I was assuming you hit q3, if you don't the q3 set can be taken to the race. But if you hit q3 and do not use the q3 set you lost a new set of softs
  14. Also, keep in mind that you will have a set of soft exclusive for q3: so it's better to use that set in q3 instead of another one as it will be the one that will be sent back regardless of its usage. In example, if you use a set in q1 and a set in q2 you may have 2 sets of softs left: one named q1 or q2 and the last one named q3. If you don't use the one named q3, it will be sent back unused and you won't be able to bring a new set of softs to the race
  15. Hi! I would like to give my feedback to the calculator. I feel like I am a consistent driver, not a champion, clean style; I am a wheel user and I play AI level 101, no assists except racing line on corners. I always found the AI in the game inconsistent from track to track and at first I didn't bother, as it could be me not performing well in some tracks. The experience i look for is realism, so I always tweaked my AI level to have fun and fight where the car is supposed to fight in, so no podiums with Williams, in example. First, I verified if 101 was my level, and it was very
  16. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Career mode, cold tyres before formation lap as it should be. If i reload the session and start the formation lap over again, tyres are already warmed up. Also, shutting down the system and reloading the save; it looks like already warm tyres happen randomly.

  17. Hi Barry, are you sure? I did play with my friend in split screen mode, we used a TX and a TMX both by Thrustmaster. Could it be the reason for some visual bugs and some commands not responding correctly? Other than that, we did have fun and could drive properly.
  18. Thanks Barry, any recommendation for Xbox? Need to do some backups? Edit: reinstalled and also got back the rain drops on camera which were not featured since a couple of weeks.
  19. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Unfortunately I have no error codes to report but my esperience in split screen was particularly bugged yesterday. As you will see in the pics attached, when choosing the personal myteam team to race instead of the full car we saw only the 4 tyres and this was also in the race, we raced with no driver nor car, tyres only. AlSo when driving for other teams, the driver's body was missing. Podiums with floating heads, a floating head on the track on the starting grid for the whole race, and last but not least when trying a
  20. After the performance update team goals didn not change: in Championship mode Ferrari medals require to obtain 1st place for gold, 2nd for silver and 4th for bronze, equal to Mercedes and Red Bull. On the other hand, After the performance boost Racing Point still needs only 7th, 8th and 10th; equal to Haas. I think it should be adjusted according to the performances in game.
  21. I felt the same and swapped them too! And my right ankle became tired soon. But I didn't have the possibility to check for a better spring for the gas pedal so I tried to asjust to its softer feeling, which is indeed much more resistant compared to the stock t3pa. I don't really have springs shops or factories in the nearbies so I will wait for something to come up on the internet...
  22. Hi! I'd like to share my experience with Thrustmaster pedals. I started off with a TMX in April, equipped with T3PA pedals already. They are good but could be improved, after practicing I felt the need for a different braking feeling. First thing I did was trying the conical rubber mod that came in stock, but it left me a bit disappointed: the rubber was too hard to actually make me feel some sort of progression in braking. Therefore I did some research and used the conical mod stand to tie an anti-stress ball behind the pedal, and that is what made me learn how to drive without abs.
  23. I was one of those people who complained that AI were on rails and not making mistakes but maybe this is linked to AI difficulty level. When I played at 90-95 I could see some slight lockups or traction losses, but yesterday I was playing at AI level 100 a 50% Grand Prix in Mexico and Hamilton made a quite major mistake by spinning completely, definitely not a scripted accident such as mechanical DNFs that can occur within the bots. This was really pleasant, I wish it could happen more and more thus making room for recovering from your mistakes and playing without flashbacks.
  24. You're right, I misunderstood as I was focusing more on the title
  25. Yes, 50% Mexico. Playing as Albon, a.i. 100 1 Bottas, 2 Albon, 3 Ham, 4 Ver, 5 Perez, 6 Leclerc, 7 Vettel, 8 Ocon. Sainz and Latifi DNF. Monster run by Verstappen from p20 due to not having attempted quali. Surprised by a.i. Hamilton brutally spinning in front of me due to a mistake, added a ton of realism
