    f1 2021 - New Feature Reveals

    Hi All Question for @BarryBLmainly I guess, as we get closer to the release date will we get more new feature reveals? Thinking mainly of the driver and My Team Career modes. I am hoping they have been enhanced as well as the new story line mode being added. I was playing an F1 2019 career mode last week to test it out, I never owned the game at the time so wanted to check out the F2 start and Dev Butler etc. There seems to be a lot more in the F1 2019 driver career than F1 2020, reputation per team etc. Made picking your first team a little more realistic though of course you wouldn't have your pick in real life. I was hoping the F1 2021 Driver career would have more realistic options, teams approaching you depending on performance and the top teams should have year long or multi year contracts for their drivers.

    Drivers transfers Career mode

    Yes. At week 11 after Austria and at the end of the Season

    F1® 2021 | Pre-Season Testing

    Great idea but would have to be a meaningful feature otherwise after 1 season everyone will just simulate it, maybe all R&D can be affected for the coming season if enough laps/programs aren't completed during Pre Season practice. Maybe something like all R&D points reduced by 25% for the season. I understand some people have limited time to play the game so a full pre season would need to be one of the options you choose at the start of the career. But once selected it has to be made meaningful, after all if a teams Pre Season is interrupted it does affect them the whole season. Look at Williams when they had to miss it altogether.

    F1 2021 Wishlist

    For me there has to be more made of the full F2 Season leading into your F1 Career. Basically at the moment there is no benefit to it, also the questions at your first interview in Australia should reflect how your F2 career went. Instead you are a total unknown regardless of the choice made at the start. It would be great if your F2 Career determined which F1 team approaches you and for me that's another change which has to be made, teams should approach the driver not the other way round. The top F1 drivers don't sign 11 race contracts, it shouldn't be that Mercedes will let you replace Hamilton or Bottas 11 races into a season. They should approach you dependant on your career so far AND if there is a seat available. EDIT: Performance related approaches and having to be approached could be an option to cater for those who want to just jump in of course. Also it could be linked to My Team, after a successful driver career you are approached by an investor asking you to create a team
  5. Hi Just a small thing , I notice we can't add our Engine Provider to our Team name as they are included in the Prohibited words so I would suggest maybe the name should be added automatically to our team choice. Certainly the name should appear on the car as a Sponsor name. Would add to the realism in my view

    Audio accessibility and quality of life feedback

    Regarding separating Jeff from the engine sounds , if you have a headset you can do this by using the "Radio Output Device" option, I have that set to my headset with mic. Jeff speaks via the headset and of course the radio commands are done by mic. The engine still comes through the main speakers. The only issue is you have to force is to send Jeff to the headset every launch of the game

    For what reasons you can't wait for F1 2021 game?

    I'm looking forward to Imola as well, hope they can add it, also the changes to Australia sound good, especially for me as I really struggle with corners 9 & 10. Just can't seem to get the entry point right consistently , I can be quick through there but get it wrong way too often. Also did you mention no more Vietnam? 😉 Anyone know why they remove old tracks no longer on the calendar? Obviously they wouldn't be included in career mode but I miss Hockenheim why not have that and other older tracks in the database? Are they stopped from doing it by the licensing rules?
  8. I still have them both in My Team and Driver Career, I just got 6th in Australia because of two retirements in the last 5 laps, also Perez had an issue half way through and I was told he was slowing down

    Suggestions for a better game

    Interesting choice of Frontier games to highlight in that article, "Frontier Developments’ most recent games include Planet Coaster and Planet Zoo, spiritual successors to the Rollercoaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon series, as well as Jurassic World Evolution" Think they missed the most important one, Elite Dangerous! Also they were responsible for the original Elite on the BBC Micro. I am expecting an excellent F1 management game from them.
  10. Hi All I have been thinking of things that could be added to both career modes to enhance them and increase realism , one I thought of was Test Drivers. Would be more effective in My Team but could also be included in a Driver career. In My Team you would need to hire a Test Driver as well as a Team Mate and then the Practice programmes would be delegated between him, your team mate and you. Same with driver career except of course you wouldn't be doing the delegating. Test drivers are an important part of any F1 team so it would be nice to see them implemented, also he/she could be poached as a main driver by another team or he/she could replace your team mate if you choose.

    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    OK into season 3 now, only done Australia so far, Bottas has moved to Ferrari so will be able to compare him and Leclerc. Verstappen's overall rating is 93, Hamilton's 95 but Hamilton hasn't beaten him too often. Verstappen won the Championship in season 2 by 83 points and he has just won the first race of season 3. Seems to me that Hamilton is indeed under-powered rather than Bottas being overpowered.

    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    OK I have been testing this so doing the practice programmes but simulating the races, except one, I am at Socchi now and Verstappen is 100 points ahead of Hamilton

    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    I actually think they may have tweaked him, I started a new MyTeam career and in season 1 Hamilton won the Championship. For season 2 no retirements but oddly Bottas moved to Alfa Romeo and Max Verstappen moved to Mercedes to join Hamilton. I've seen Bottas move to a lower team before but not until Season 4 or 5 in the past
  14. Hi Hope the title isn't too confusing but I have headphones with a mic and I have the sound options set to use with F1 2020 . I have them set to the "Radio Output Device" however I have to force it to send the radio sound to the headphones by changing it to the speakers and then back again for it to work. It then works fine until the game is re-loaded and you have to do it again otherwise the radio voice is through the speakers and the mic doesn't work. Version 1.17 but has been the case for a few versions. To make it happen simply set the options and then quit and re-load, the correct option will be selected but the sound will be through the speakers until you change and change back again.
