    Question on managing engine components in race

    Not an expert on that but... Using Rich fuel Mix affects the mgu-k . So driving in rich wears it down (at a certain point you can't use Rich mode). Lean wears down the mgu-h and it also affects the electric Control (sp?) (German Word is steuerlektronik). So that you can't Ude Lean Mode. The mgu-h also regulates temperature. Your Engine might overheat and wears down More. It could be the other way around though. So alway try driving in normal fuel Mode (Rich mode wears down Engine more) Shift Early and down stretch out gears. Use lift and coast. Less full throttle, thè better för the Engine. Thats what i do. Could be totally wrong though.

    Remove 3 tracks and add your own 3 .

    Remove: Hanoi Baku Abu Dhabi Add Nürburgring Turkey Kuala Lumpur Note: there are way more circuits I would like to be replaced (Le Castellet, Singapore, Socchi, Budapest, I don't need raplacements for them (maybe Hockenheim because of patriotism)

    Safety car

    Seeing how so many people have different opinions ans encounters with the safety car, there is definately something wrong with it. I for myself have a safety Car every single race (only one). It appears every time the first car retires. I did not go into research if this is due to crashes or mechanical failures. Interesting side note: I drove MyTeam French GP 100% Race. In the middle of the race during the last two corners, I got the message of the safety car being deployed. I turned the car to make it into the pits and crashed straight into the pit wall (yeah I know, dumb). I then used a replay restarting a few corners earlier. The car still retired, but there was no safety car this time. (although it appeared during the next retirement).

    question of practice programs

    Totally different with me. Ob most tracks i manage the time with ease but struggled with he pace of my teammate. (82 AI ps4 controller autogear an reaction control)

    What tires do I get for the race?

    what is your compount allocation? You have 7 sets of tyres you can use during quali and race combined. depending of which allocation you choose, you got more sets of softs or of mediums or even hard. Maybe you have lots of hards and mediums left and just ran out of softs. A hard allocartion could mean that you only had 3 softs but 3 mdeium and 1 hard set. I linked a threat where you can see the tyre allocation screen with the varoius options though there is a bug involved.

    How do you qualify?

    Yeah, I heard about this a few times. But I can live with that. I am already in a weird postition. My Car in MyTeam at this point is way OP compard to the others. Yet I struggle to beat my teammate (Schumacher). He is basically at the same speed and sometimes even a few hundreds of a sec faster (in paractice at least) The rest is mostly a sceond off. So I don't mind the little nerf.

    How do you qualify?

    that depends on which mix of tyre sets you choose. In career mode, you have the option to decide how many sets of which compound you wanna take for the weekend. If you're certain you don't want to take the hard tyre, Take less. Or pick a soft set more for a medium. Otherwise, to have a fresh set of soft for the end. you have to spare one.

    How do you qualify?

    You got seven sets of tires that you can use during qualifying and race combined. So every set is avaliable in the race. If you use all of your soft tires in quali, you don't have a fresh set for the race and only have used ones. If you make it to Q3. You have to start the race with the tire you made your fastest lap in Q2. So that one is already used. I would go for softs at the start then and go for a spared soft tire (if you can). And for the end race go for mediums. If a safety car comes out, you have enough options to alter your strategy.

    How do you qualify?

    I have the settings full qualifying. But I only take one lap per session. Mostly I fast forward till the Ai has done it's first try. Then ewhen they all go back to pit, I go straight to flying lap. Do one take and then right back to pit. I wait till the AI finished it's first shot. Then got directly to flying lap. One shot and then directly back to pit. I fast forward to the end of the session or let it run out depending on time left. In the wet, I take a lot more fuel with me and drive the whole session to improve my time. Maybe get dry tyres if it makes sense. If it is dry and rain is supposed to come, I go out right as well.

    Sorry about the Qualitiy but Idon't know how t extract snapshots from PS4 to my PC. However here is Season 5 of the OPC (OPEL Perfomance Center) F1 Racing Team
  12. Hi there, this is something that followed me through my run with F12020 so far. Now it hit a point where it got so obvious that I felt the need to psot this. Im driving MyTeam on PS4 with a Controller. Ai level is 84. I have traction control on full, automatic gear shift and breaking assitent off. Right now I'm in Season 4 at Spa. My Car is only by a very minimal margin the best on track. What I noticed today was that in practice programs, I beat the traget times in Race Strategy by about 3-4 Seconds. Similar with tire, fuel and ERS management. I am about 1.5 second faster than my traget times. in ERS I don't even have to use my ERS to beat the time with ease and therefor always managing to get purple statuses on my practice programms. I know what you are saying "just raise the AI level." The thing is that compared to the other Cars on track in the race, I may be about 0.3/0.4 sec faster than the rest. Given my AI level and my Car, I expect to be faster than all the rest (and maybe I am running on to low difficulty). But I find this to be a bit strange. Has anyone experience with this massive difference in target time and real speed? How are these traget times calculated? Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for the feedback

    Simmed race completely omitted

    do you run 100% races? I had this issue myself with a few other memebers. You have to turn the formation lap off when simulating. Then it should work.

    Black Screen after Simulating races

    It worked two times for me as well. In my first and my second Savegame. Not the optimal solution since I have to remind myself to turn formation lap and off. But for the moment it works.

    Black Screen after Simulating races

    I ran into the same Problem. I play on PS4 using a PS4 Controller with 100% Races. After I ran into the black Screen numerous times on my first MyTeam Career. I made a new MyTeam Career for testing using the same settings as the first one. I never drove a lap once in the new career and just siimulated through the sessions not answering interviews, doing Car upgrades or scheduling programs. I used a preset liverie instead of making my own And this time, all the races were simulated normally. After 5 attempts. I got back to my first Career and simulated a race again. But the black screen happaned once more. Unfortunately, thinking everything was fine, I deleted that Career. Thinking that maybe the 1. Savegame was corrupted, I went for a thrid career. Set the same team name. previously created template and the same teammate. I drove the Australia race completely and then simulated Bahrain. And the black screen happened again. Right now, I'm back in my first Career simulating and waiting for something to happen. For as long as it takes...
