    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    It's leclerc that's over powerd in my team . Ferrari have the 3rd fastest car on performance chart just behind me and Merc is 2 ultimate upgrades ahead at least a canny gap . And yet it was Ferrari and Charles I was fighting for the title last season . Honestly it went to the last race I had an 19 point advantage over leclerc . What happend thow is I ended up skipping qusli by mistake . First time o done that as well . Any ways Charles starts 3 rd while. I'm at the back . Leclerc won the race on the last lap while I just managed to get 7th on the lady corner of the lady lap kinds like how Lewis won his title in 08 . But going of the cars performance it should of been Merc fighting for the title . But it wasent it wax Ferrari and leclerc . But his teammate never got 1 podium he was always finishing out side of podium .
  2. I've had an problem with the commentary on race day . Since release most of the time I don't get any . I liked watching the pre race and having a listen to the commentators . Before race . It kinda builds the race up a bit . And it adds a bit immersion to it . The one thing I hate about career . Is the isn't really any kind of story to it . I'd like when a drivers gets his first podium or win . In RL it's a big thing . Were in game you get your first win .and you never get asked about it . And it's never mentioned .like everything in life it's the little details that make the difference

    So, I went throught the 10 seasons of "My Team"...

    Been able to adjust base performance . And rnd speed is a brilliant idea . . Even just the rnd speed . Could make it a lot more interesting and you.could shape the grid which ever way you want . But then saying that ain't the fetching some type of developing token system out next year . So going to be interesting how that's pit into the game

    25% Races A.I. Hard Tyres ?!

    Rember doing race in China . I pitted on lap 5 if rember correct . My teammate Russel pitted on lap 9 he and another driver were the only drivers to stay out that long on softs . When he came in I expected him to come out on medium and to challenge me as he came out a few secs behind is only to notice he had the hards on . And was dropping away from is . Just thought how ridiculas that wax with the been only 5 laps left . Also is it me or why my team mate always pits after me . It's very rare hes madea stop before is I generally have to pit early . So Russel pits and doesn't loose a load of positions from staying out too long on the tyres . It would be good if we could set out teammates strategy or choose who pits first . This game has so much potential . To improve and immerse the player so much more . But the developers just don't care as long as the is a base game out . It would be so much better . Just adding team orders and a bit more access o er your teammate . Like strategy's . But honestly I've seen drivers stop out on old softs then to pit from few laps from end only to pit the hards on

    Will ever ever see player mechanical failures?

    Dude you got the nail on the head . I've been wanting player failures for a good few year now . But have it were it will only happen in the first quarter of race . As having a failure 2 laps from end would be guttering . But also the time you spend doing the race having it in first few laps it wouldent be that bad as you haven't put as much time in the race

    Race starts are ruining my experience with Codemasters' games

    Hi yeah my chassis is 6 upgrades from been fully upgraded . Have the best chassis on performance chart . Level with Merc . Same for engine as well . As far as aero goes I haven't put as much into that 6 th fastest I think .I have no plans on focusing on the aero too much as I'm trying to design a car that is good on high speed tracks . And average on high downforce . . In the hopes it keeps the title fight alive and to add a big of variability to the game . The only things I upgraded in aero is to do with the drag and drs for better straight line speed . Also one minor upgrade in aero could put is from 6th too 2nd in chart . Bit I want to have some tracks where the car isn't the strongest . Thanks for the info I'll try it next I'm on it

    Hanoi dropped from 2021 calendar

    The should have all the tracks that got the last minute call up for this year . As the best races have been on the one off tracks . Especially mogull would love to see that track back . Bit of a thought I had early in the season is why don't the FIA throw 1 or 2 joker tracks in . Where the teams only know where the are racing when it comes time to ship the equipment there . The FIA can keep an empty slot on calender then the drivers and teams have an option to vote on a hand full of tracks with the winner been announced when the shipping date comes

    Race starts are ruining my experience with Codemasters' games

    I turn the fuel to lean for start then once into 3 rd 4th gear turn fuel to normal and hit the over take button . That worked perfect for me the first 2 seasons . But like mentioned in comment my 3 rd season and I have lost of the line every time . I've noticed over the last few races

    Race starts are ruining my experience with Codemasters' games

    When first started the game the starts were easy always making places of the line and of not kept my starting position . Im half way threw S3 now the car is near enough 3 quarters upgraded and o have been loosing a lot of places off the line over the past few races . I'm at Monza at min had a wet quali so free tyre choice I've done over 25 starts on that track . And everyone no matter the tyre I'm dropping from 2nd to 10th off the line every single time no matter what settings I have . I play with medium TC I've tried no TC and that is worse . I haven't tried with full TC . But my 3rd season my starts have been awful compared to first 2 seasons . Also my last season o was at Monza I played on 99 diff competitively . Were this season any higher than 95 I can't keep up .and I have a new engine components . Just can't figure out how I've become so bad at starts all of a sudden and having to lower difficulty

    Wet to dry track

    If you watched the full face you could see the racing line was bone dry at some parts of the track while other parts where still wet . Hence why when the drivers put new inters on the weren't going any quicker than those on old inters parts of the track was for wets whole the other part was for drys . I rember when the used to have that in game can't rember which year bit it was a challenge keeping the car on the dry line . The used to have it so it would only rain at half the track . As well . O think the need to look into adding that back into the he for 2021 the technology has improved since then so shouldn't be that hard .

    question of practice programs

    I've been struggling with the era programme since patch 12 . Used to get threw it spot on all the time on every track . But since patch 12 . It hasent been working propley . Take spa what was my last race went to do the ers programm everything is fine until I brake on certain corners then the bar goes from purple to red and the is nothing I could do about it as if don't hit the breaks o will. Crash . It doesn't do it every time I break iether . Only on certain corners . Never experienced it since the introduced the ers management . And also doesn't do it every track . Normally I would just do the race and qusli . If comfable on recourse points which I ain't at Mon as in a battle with Merc and Ferrari . Didn't want to buy the recourse generator . As having to earn my recourse points is making the challenge a little bit harder . Especially having to play catch up .just hoping the isn't any reg changes for next season . As I would be screwed should find out about any regs changes soon . But hope not as currently have no recourse points and every department near enough maxed out I will drop down the field

    Bottas P1

    That's the problem he has seen F1 the last few seasons . How many wins has bottas got to Lewis . Not many . So on that regards hes right . The game isn't representive of real life . In fact bottas had never won back to back races in F1 career. What I have noticed over the past few years is the drivers swap every year in who is ahead . Like bottas will regularly beat Hamilton in one season then Lewis will regularly beat bottas the next . Which isn't a bad idea in my opion as that could mix things up a bit . And all the teams ain't 2 by 2 in the tables . I see where he's coming from . But it will reverse the following season

    How do you qualify?

    I generally do short quali if car not good enough for top ten but of have time and it's a track I like I do full quali mainly cause I've noticed if do short quali the A1 all start on same tyre . But when do full quali some times the A1 start on different tyres . It's the one thing that annoys the most the A1 always start on same tyre . I mean how hard can it be for codies to add some variables to the game . Like the top teams do quali 2 on the medium tyre I'd have pace

    Will F1 2020 look better on PS5?

    Aye I'm more of a joypad player me self . Thought about a wheel a couple times . But over the past few years I just haven't been into the game as used to be . At the min it's just a casual play mainly when the race weekends are on I know my pc set up isn't a shabby one and know you can do way more with an pc . But I've had problems with it since I built it at the start of year mainly went the pc route cause of mods . But funny thing is I haven't installed one mod on any game apart from rdr2 buy even them I never used . And on top of that I think I've got an failing graphics card and it's only 6 month old . Which I'm going have to send back which I could be waiting months for it back . And I'm gonna need something for me gaming fix . But aye cheers for the info m8
