  1. The reason why this issue is so incredibly frustrating is that everything worked before one of the patches broke it. Basically this entire game mode is now pointless. Why set lap times if you can anyway never see how good or bad you are. It also doesn't really work as a place to get better because I cannot load any other ghosts to compare your racing line to etc. And to be honest, being a customer who payed 60 Euros at release and gets this massive ad for F1 2021 in the main menu leaves you with very mixed feelings knowing that a huge part of the game just doesnt work.


    Btw: I started to set times with the historical cars instead but there I have the same problem.

    If we can't recreate it, then no. And it's clear we can't recreate it.

    That is mainly why I keep asking what to do and what to test because I have here at least two accounts where I can recreate these issues. Based on my postings above, this issue is not related to the machine running the game. The only thing they have in common is that they use the same Steam account which we cannot avoid. In the mean time I have also deleted all user data of the game and I don't see a change. Therefore I believe that the problem is linked to the steam/codemasters/f1game account (idk how the system works).  There seems to be no option to also reset the ingame online account to start the game without any (online) user data at all (obviously I am not going to buy the game on a new Steam account again, although it would be interesting to see whether this problem still occurs). Unless no one from the dev team who works with the leaderboard/account system has any idea and if it is also not possible to reset/clear ingame online user data (even for devs, etc.) then I don't see how you can help.

    Here is an update of the same leaderboard about 24 hours after I posted yesterday, which may be useful for demonstrating the evolution of updates? You can see there are an additional 53 users listed now compared to yesterday.

    Fits perfect to what I experience.


    I had the impression if you load the leaderboard on a daily basis, then the 'old' leaderboard information from the days before stays in the database

    Do you have Steam installed to your C drive?  

    Yes and no. The desktop PC (dxdiag that I posted) has Steam outsourced on a different physical SSD. The laptop (I can post the dxdiag as well if you like) has everything installed on the same physical hard drive.

    @Tulip96 - perfect screenshots. Those show what I mean with the strange selection of lap times. Usually times from the same day or maybe the day before + lap times from december 2020.

  4. Hey,

    DxDiag attached. I'm using an ASRock Z390 Pro4 on my Desktop PC, the laptop is an XPS 9560. Me and my friend are both playing from Germany.

    Some German ISPs have been problematic but I don't recall the names

    I can exclude that as a reason because I have tried the local internet provider, my mobile internet from a completely different provider and my friend has a completely different provider, too. I would be surprised if it's therefore somehow client based.

    I think that the best starting point for analysis is the fact that this (at least for me) occured first, when the F2 2020 season was introduced. During the last week I have also started to look on the leaderboard on a daily basis. I unfortunately did not make any screenshots but I had the impression if you load the leaderboard on a daily basis, then the 'old' leaderboard information from the days before stays in the database while if you don't do anything then all information gets deleted. I also dont understand the selection of data that makes it to my leaderboard. It's usually just the lap times of that day + a few additional ones, sometimes from the day before but sometimes I see times set before Christmas. Really weird.

  5. Sorry for the triple post - but apparently I need to do this to bring the thread again to the front-page because nobody saw that I have updated the feedback and I haven't heard back from you for over a week now.

    I have posted above the tests that I have done - any ideas or solutions to this problem? I am mostly playing F2 so it is important to me to fix this issue.

  6. Two different things happen - at first you are too aggressive out of T1 and then the curbs amplify your rear motion even more. Watch Mazepin in T1 and T2 a couple of weeks ago


    So, is the car's physics bad? Does chance not belong to the game as a mistake?

    Sorry, the car physics is ok. A slippery rear is normal and means you should either modify the setup or give less throttle in and out of turns.


    Also in the 2019 game, the problem was that the car was unable to stop and still didn't take a turn

    Two reasons: 1) your turn-speed is too high. Slow on entry, fast on exit is overall faster than fast turn in and then medium exit. 2) modify the setup. Higher Toe = more "turnability" as the description says.

    How do you explain this?

    The changeover was done, I wanted to stop with a vise brake ant the card didn't stop

    That's called understeer. You entered the turn way too fast.

    Dear Codemasters works!

    1. The temperature and wear of the tires are fine the car still slips back at normal accelerations the fault comes every day but there are times when we push the floor gas anywhere and yet the car does not slip there are races that are absolutely good not slip back all over and there are some when the car also slips straight and becomes completely unsteerable and the fault occurs on all tracks

    3. 1.18

    4. Each game mode and on each track

    5. The temperature and wear of the tires are fine the car still slips back at normal accelerations the fault comes every day but there are times when we push the floor gas anywhere and yet the car does not slip there are races that are absolutely good not slip back all over and there are some when the car also slips straight and becomes completely unsteerable and the fault occurs on all tracks

    6. The car slips, the brakes do less, the car doesn't, stick, In the other round, though, it goes flawlessly

    Ultra3142 is right. At 00:31 - you accelerate towards T2 aggressive and then hit the curb. That's why you rear starts to breaks out. Be careful there with the throttle and adjust the setup. Then T4 at 00:54 - your rears are already hot and you accelerate a bit aggressive. With hot rears you are going to spin more easily. You could go through the entire video and explain at each turn what is happening - but it is not a bug, it's the physics of the car.

  8. Update:

    Turns out my friend has the same problems. We have exchanged our accounts and we see the same leaderboards. I have attached screenshots. Screenshot 1 is the leaderboard of his account that I have taken, Screenshot 2 and 3 are made with my account for the leaderboard for the same track. You can see that his time is listed in the friends section but isn't listed in the general leaderboard. I conclude from that, that if the game does not find your lap time in the data base, it will set you on P0. Unfortunately I don't know other people that own the game that I can ask or share accounts with.






  9. I've checked the game files with Steam twice and installed the game on my other computer where I see the same problems. Would be weird if both independent installations have the same files missing or corrupted and not detected via Steam.


    A little more information of how and when you disconnect, what and when would be helpful to replicate.

    I usually don't play offline. I just wanted to test if it makes a difference. I'm always connected to Steam and their online services.

    To be honest, I have never changed any settings for F1 2020. By default it has Steam Cloud activated with 50MB/299.45MB occupied. Maybe the App-ID and Build-ID of the game files help? I have App-ID 1080110 and Build-ID 6373901 which were last updated on 23.3. - I think that was the release of v1.17.

    I've now attached a video. I've just started the game at the point when the videos starts. What I have not seen before is that Australia and Bahrrain show probably all players that have set a time there. But going to the next tracks makes this bug appear again. E.g. I bet that at least someone has set a time in China and for Zandvoort and Silverstone I'm again P0.. And of course you can see that the Leaderboard in Hungary is now different from the screenshot that I posted on friday.

  10. Hey,

    Unfortunately not. I can join unranked and ranked sessions just as normal. I also don't have the spinning wheel on the top left longer than a few seconds when it loads the leaderboard, it absolutely behaves and look like just 20 people have set lap times. I also wanted to test if it has anything to do with steam, but apparently you cannot connect to the codemasters server in Steam offline mode.

    F1 TT is fine, there everything works like intended.


    Edit: I have an idea. I've set a slow disqualified laptime in F2 2020 Bahrrain short. That should appear near the bottom of the leaderboard. Can you check if that time was even uploaded to the server and shows up in your leaderboard? I have attached a screenshot and I received for this incredible time a 50 credit bonus - so the super license stuff works as well.F1bug2.thumb.jpg.ff35f7b9cc703fe7b95f9ca3a354019e.jpg

  11. Dear Codemasters,

    I am encountering a bug in the F2 time trial modes. It does not matter if I choose F2 2020 or F2 2019, the only drivers that appear in the leaderboard are people that have set laps on that day. All other times disappear the next day just sometimes there are 1 or 2 laptimes that are from yesterday or a day before. I am also very confident that more than 22 people have set a lap in time trial mode in Hungary (see attached picture). This issue is independent of track or car that I select. I am playing on Win10 PC with version 1.17 but I have seen the same issues since the release of the F2 2020 feature. Even though I do not believe that it matters, I am playing the game with the Fanatec Elite Wheelbase and the official F1 licensed Esports wheel from Fanatec. I would appreciate any help because without a leaderboard the whole time trial mode is pointless.

    Thank you for your help.


    Or in TLDR format:

    • Description: F2 time trial shows only lap times from today
    • Platform: Win10 PC
    • Version: 1.17
    • Game-mode: Time Trial F2 2019/2020
    • Reproduce: There is no way how I can prevent this nad it happens 100% of the time. Every leaderboard looks like that. I start the game, go to Solo - Time Trial - select a random car - select a track - check the leaderboard. There is also inconsistency between the friends leaderboard and the all leaderboard - my friends lap times are not shown in the "all" leaderboard. I have checked the ingame leaderboards and the one that you can access while selecting the track. Since my leaderboard time is in a few cases faster than all other lap times driven today, I am appearing on top but not with position 1 but sometimes with position 0. I have also installed the game on my other laptop, I encounter there the same problem so it is probably linked to my account or something like that.
    • Troubleshooting: Switch cars, track and play on another day. Doesnt help
    • Peripherals: Fanatec Elite Wheelbase with F1 Official Esports Wheel
