    Safety Car likeliness?

    I have one most races which ruins it as the AI just sit behind it and I get fresh rubber and trounce them.
  2. I find even in a much faster car I can't run well on softs at the start, put mediums on first stop and I'm flying. The differential between softs and mediums in first stint isn't strong enough and then the AI leaders who pit can't get through the field when they pit early. First two races in a Merc in career mode I've trailed Lewis at the first stop but he gets stuck in the midfield after his stop and I can overtake him and drive off. It needs fixing as it's ruining realism.

    Thoughts on AI Behaviour?

    Have the same issue, the top 3 teams can overtake each other but just cannot overtake midfield cars even on fresher tyres. They should be blasting past. Had a great 5 corner ding dong with LeClerc at Zandvoort, but at the same time Hamilton was stuck behind Sainz for 15 laps.

    Thoughts on AI Behaviour?

    Oh, and completely illogical 2 stops, with 5 laps to go, pitted at the same time as others for the same tyre and have 10-15 second gap behind and they give up the podium.

    Thoughts on AI Behaviour?

    Jekyll and Hyde. In Vietnam, relentlessly quick on the back straight. Flip side, side by side and got squeezed into the wall and too often they turn in on you and wreck their front wing and race when sense would say either defend the inside or yield. Then for the past 2 races I've been in front of Hamilton by between 6 tenths and a second almost the entire time and he tried one half-hearted overtake move. There's seems to be no consistency or no correlation to real-life personality. They go for divebombs in stupid places and spear off into the wall but given the pace advantage they don't set you up and attack you like their real counterparts do. They like a perma-version of Grosjean at Abu Dhabi.

    Cant change ERS on Quualifying

    My ERS keeps cutting out in the last sector, normally around 40% but in Holland just now it was at 63% at the banking and just went red with an X and cut out. Seems odd if the game automatically gives you mapping that runs out before 1 lap.

    Suggestions for the future of this game

    Add team orders in a scrollable list where the ERS menu was in race for my team Choose team mates strategy for qualifying/race for my team Fix fuel consumption back to 2019, the engines are insanely thirsty in 2020

    Maybe, I just think without it it becomes driver career mode with custom livery. Even if they just replaced the ERS 1-5 setting on the HUD with 5 different commands for your team-mate, let's say "Push - Save fuel - Hold position - Swap position and Pit this lap" with a neutral setting and you could switch it and it gives the command it would be a huge bonus. I know some people would exploit or spam it but unlike online, it's their own career mode they'd be wasting but for proper players it would be a decent fix for one year till a more immersive option on next gen consoles, if needs be.

    Of course, maybe it could have a reputation rating where if you keep screwing over your team-mate they stop listening, don't renew contracts etc. and it damages your acclaim. Just think with it being constructors based, the AI is more than capable of buggering up your team-mates strategy with inferior decision making.

    Can we set our team-mates qualifying and race strategy, and can we give our team-mates team orders during the race? If the whole point is to run a team and win the constructors then really we need that in-race control, getting the edge with undercuts and pitting under SC. I basically won a championship in F1 2019 based off pitting under the SC whilst my AI team-mate, despite being in front, would carry on only to pit 2 laps after the SC pits. We really need some level of control even if it's just prompting Jeff to give our team-mate orders.
