    From pad to wheel

    AI 90? Damn, I thought you're struggling mate, but actually you're killing it. I just increased the AI to 70 and found it pretty challenging. 😅

    Difference in car performance in sec

    I was searching this forum for a related topic but couldn't find it, so I decided to start a new one. Of course, the difference in car performance is somehow visible by comparing the AI lap times in qualifying or race in the grand prix mode. However, I assume there's a difference if the car is maneuvered by the AI or by yourself?! For exampe: The pink Mercedes is a bit behind RB in the performance chart, but the engine is stronger. So if you twist the setup a bit, I wonder if you're able to go faster than a RB?! For example: I'm participating in an online league and I'm playing MyTeam. The difficulty is the same. In the online league, I'm having great fights with my teammate (Hamilton), while I'm about 1.5 sec faster / lap in MyTeam compared to my teammate (a roided up Gasly). Any comment?

    From pad to wheel

    I bought the T300 this summer and finally made the switch from pad to wheel. I wasn't using any assits on the pad except automatic shifting. So manual shifting was something that I had to get used to, however, it only took me a couple of hours. Personally, I find that using the pedals is more difficult. I just couldn't find my rhythm in the beginning and it definitly took me more than 10-15h to get used to it. I'd say it took me a full season (race length: 50%) to really get used to the wheel and become fast. Setting the linearity for acceleration and breaking to 50% helped me a lot - especially with the breaking. After 2 full seasons, I'm about 2 sec faster per lap than on the pad. The difference in accuracy, handling in general and being able to put in constant lap times is huge - in particular on tracks like Silverstone or Suzuka.

    Tyre wear and differential

    I don't think you get a "massive" tyre wear using 50% diff. I always use between 50-65% and I'm still able to run a 1 stop strategy (soft & medium) on most tracks. I also don't know anybody using 100% diff (or even close). I can't think of any advantage using it. Edit: I do 50% race length all assists off.

    Race starts are ruining my experience with Codemasters' games

    I struggled a lot with race starts as well until I found it is related to the medium tyres. I now always use soft tyres in Q2 and it's OK since then. My starts are not perfect, but I now manage to keep my position at least. That extra level of grip can make a big difference.

    No points if you change race result manually (DNF)

    Thanks for getting back at me, mate. I understand I get no points for the DNFs, but if I change the results, I should get some points, no? For example: If the network connection is lost just 3 rounds before finishing the race, I prefer to just enter the results manually than start the race all over again. However, that's not possible, because if I end the session, I'll get a DNF and therefore no points.

    Nobody? Nothing?

    Manual race start (assists off)

    Thanks. I will try to do it next time. I was also thinking about starting with the low fuel mix to avoid wheel and ultimately crashing the car on the grid wall.

    Manual race start (assists off)

    Hi, I'm still struggling with manual race starts. I'm playing on a T300 wheel with two pedals. This means I have no clutch pedal. I need to press and hold the switch (= shift up) and release it when the lights turn red. I have problems to into that perfect range with the tachometer. Is there any way to ease things up? (Yes, I like to keep manual race starts.)
  10. We faced a technical issue with our online league. It was not possible to proceed from training to qualifiying in the China GP. The results were not transfered correctly. (I think it's a well-known problem.) Therefore, we decided to continue the season with unranked races. We finished the China GP and had another try to proceed in the league after a couple of days and it suddenly worked. So we just ended the session in the first lap of the race with the intention to change the result manually. Now it is actually possible to change the result BUT you still get no points for a top 10 position! I assume it has something to do with DNF. Any idea how to solve this?
  11. Happened to me as well. Seems like there's no way to fix it. So I've basically invested 30h of my life for... nothing. Fantastic.

    Same problem here. Right in the middle of a season. Any suggestions?

    State of F1 online multiplayer

    So we finished about 50% of our league season and now the game got stuck in the training of the China GP. We can't continue with qualifying. Great. Now we have to somehow finish the season manualy by using excel. Maybe that's the better option anyway because rain in every second race sucks anyway.

    How do you break your limits?

    Yes, trail braking is the key to become faster. If you're not used to it, it's very difficult to change your driving style.

    If there's no safety car in your game, you should change the setting to "safety car: on". The safety car comes out in every third race or so.
