    Either 46 or 87. I'd rather have 11 but that damn Perez already has it :p What team is everyone going for? Reckon I'm gonna start with McLaren. yeah had the same problem as I wanted 5 but Vettel's got that so I'm going to go with 10 but then I might use different numbers on different careers to mix things up but for my first career on 2016 it'll be 10. I'm planning on starting with Williams. I want to do a Nigel Mansell/Damon Hill and win with the Williams team. It t was either going to be Williams or McLaren but I'm going Williams because I went with McLaren on my first season on 2015 so decided to go the other way for 2016 and have Bottas as my teammate. I'm choosing Bottas purely because he's the stronger of the 2 drivers and I don't want to really be carrying the team on my own Actually, mind changed, I'm gonna go with 24, the day of the month I was born. Figured one of the drivers already had it but apparently not! Stick with a number though dude :p Pick one and make it yours heh. I had been thinking about going Williams too, but I really wanna try bringing a team from lower down back to the front. I'd have chosen Bottas too with Williams, but with McLaren I'm kinda stuck, I like both Button and Alonso and want them both as a teammate. Gonna have to flip a coin.

    That race 3 incident was nuts, one very lucky cameraman to escape without injury.

    Maybe we'll have to put that to the test :p I've deffo improved my pace at most circuits since we last played together ;) What circuits are all of you guys best and worst at would you say? I think for me Sepang is the circuit I feel bulletproof at, and Singapore is the one where I just wanna slam it into a barrier on purpose lol.

    I've raced without aids for a little while now, probably since I did league racing way back in 2011. The issue for me having just jumped back into it is being consistent. Right now I am capable of setting competitive laps against pro AI (It's with a mod, so i think its expert - the one below legend without the mod) but I make too many little errors right now. I'm driving a Toro Rosso to be fair though, and its not a good car in 2012. I was quite proud of my podium (3rd) in China in changing conditions. Probably one of the best races I've ever done. The weird thing for me was I've raced on Forza and other games without most aids for ages, but I could just never get along with the F1 games without certain aids because the games just felt wrong. Particularly F1 2013. But since F1 2014 the physics have just started feeling better and it's more like I can actually feel and see how the car reacts to my inputs and that's made it better when I've turned the aids off, and made it easier to be consistent each lap :) I'm currently racing as Vettel on 2015's career mode, last race was Sochi, I won with a 19 second lead over Hamilton with the game set to it's hardest possible, no aids, cockpit view, legend AI, a mod that cranks up damage sensitivity, and another mod that reduces grip by 50% (I think) when you run off circuit. Problem is that every race is like that :p I don't have the motivation to league race any more so I'm super hoping the Ultimate AI really are ultimate lol. I mainly stopped using aids purely for the league racing I was doing at the time, I actually found the F1 games were fine without the aids compared to say Gran Turismo or Project CARs now. I always play racing games without aids now. I don't know what it is about 2012 now, it feels so unstable with a Toro Rosso - might just be the set up, don't know though.  I hate situations like that, its absolutely no fun demolishing AI every race.  Why don't you league race? I always thought it was the best part of F1 2011 for me. The league I was in actually wanted to ban aids for the last season I was gonna do with them, but there was still like half the guys on the grid who used auto gears so it wasn't really something that could be done without putting half the grid at a disadvantage.For me though bud, it all depends on the game. There's some that just feel awful without aids, and some that feel so so much better :) It really isn't dude, I'm hoping ultimate are at least on or close to my pace, but I'll still race it either way :p I loved league racing for a while, but I was doing it on Xbox 360 and having to use a game capture thing which 75% of the time was fine, and 25% of the time would corrupt footage lol. I started getting into PC gaming after a while though and the guys in the league were all going for Xbox One, but I never joined a PC league because I couldn't imagine racing anybody but the guys in that league. Also I race with a pad, it's embarrassing to admit that even though I could probably beat a lot of wheel guys ;) Also I'm lazy now lol. League racing is easily the best form of online racing though, I'd more than happily recommend anybody who's interested to just go for it :) I could never use a pad, I'm absolutely useless with one now :p And yeah I'd recommend it to anyone, I might well join one for 2016 - I'll have to see though. Lol, I'm one of those weirdo's who's actually faster with a pad than with a wheel :p I bought a G27 from @Hughesy a few years ago now, but my pad times are anywhere from 0.5 - 1s faster each lap :) Don't reckon I will, too lazy at my old age of 28 ;)

    Only 3 seasons on 2015? I haven't even finished 1 on it yet :D Recently though I've taken ABS off too, so I'm running with zero aids now and it's way more fun. Only trouble is I can finish a 25% race with a 15 second lead on Legend, so hopefully Ultimate will actually be a challenge on 2016.

    MotoGP

    Just got around to watching todays race. I can't help but think Rossi and Lorenzo have both torpedoed their championship challenges now. Lorenzo was extremely lacklustre, and Rossi was just dumb to stay on the wets so long, despite the team holding out the Box pit board for god knows how many laps. Great podium for Crutchlow though, and a massive shame that Redding lost 3rd with only 2 corners to go.

    What news is that @mike96? http://blog.codemasters.com/f1/07/f1-2016-new-features-trailer/ A 22 player-online grid, manual starts and formation lap as well!   Well, it's only taken them 8 years to add the features we've been asking for since they announced they had the license. It does sound like it's shaping up to be the best since 2010 though. Yeah I agree @RevolvingPrawn I do hope they put options in to turn some of these things off or allow us to go back to the way things were because todays announcement leaves me a bit wary that we might end up with another F1 2013 situation on our hands where some people will end up complaining it's too hard and as I recall that's what happened with 2013 when they tried to go too far down the sim route then because it completely ruined the easier difficulties of the game. Also everyone around here might remember it lead to the forum being shut down. I think the ideas are good. I'm just worried about us little guys who just like to just drive around on Amateur difficulty and things like that as I wouldn't want to see CM repeat those mistakes. Especially after what they've promised sounds like one of the best racing games I've ever heard of. Well, considering that I play F1 2015 on Legend AI and the only assist I use now is ABS, I'm not worried about it being difficult :p I'm saying that even back in 2008 there was people asking for formation laps, full grids for multiplayer, manual starts, manual pit lane entry, etc etc. It's taken CM only 8 games to add in those features.

    Well thank **** the right man took it in the end. Di Grassi still needs punishment for the crap he pulled this race though.

    Formula E Thread

    I think Buemi might be doing something pretty smart here, probably waiting for it to get towards the end where the track will be most rubbered in. Di Grassi will have run out of charge by then and won't be on circuit. If it doesn't go that way though then I really don't think Di Grassi deserves to be champ after that.
  20. RevolvingPrawn

    Formula E Thread

    I think DQ is a must, but maybe just from this race. As long as Buemi gets out and does fastest lap then a DQ from this race for Di Grassi would be fair.

    OK wow. Looks like Di Grassi may have just completely screwed Buemi for the championship. That was just plain ridiculous.

    What was your last purchase

    It actually has too many buttons for my taste, gonna disable most of them lol. I just want a mouse that's really comfortable and just works well so I'm pinning my hopes on it lol. I actually looked at it a bunch of times before but always ruled it out for having too many buttons. It was £45 on Amazon bud, says it was reduced from £80. There was only 14 left when I paid for mine and they're sold out now until the 30th. The same mouse is on Amazon twice but the other one is £67.

    What was your last purchase

    Been buying a bunch of different wireless mice recently that have all been pretty subpar. All have gone back so far (which has been great for me since the local Post Office girl looks like she could be Natalie Dormer's sister!). Fed up with buying and sending back random £20 ones and decided just to splash out a bit more on something decent.

    They're a pretty good way for someone who's new to PC gaming to grab a bunch of games on the cheap. But when you have 190+ games in your library already it's difficult to find anything new in them. Only bought one game so far.
