I came back after F1 2016. I have been playing for a couple of days now on 85 difficulty, enjoying both the new My Team and the Driver Career modes.
I have one issue though, I play with no assists, full damage, manual gear changes, and my gearbox gets worn out after 2 races. On F2 , sometimes i cannot complete a single race weekend.
I am on PS4 and with a controller. My race distance is 50% and it makes me think that it could be a scaling bug?
I can definitely smooth my downshifts a bit but still, it doesn't feel that it will fix the issue entirely.
