  1. 1. Obviously there are more important things to sort out and I may be nitpicking (sorry) by this point, but I feel like some DRS boards need moving to be accurately positioned by their respective lines on track. (Brake boards are susceptible to this too but maybe that is a nitpick too far? Haha.) Generally, it's okay, but there are some that are quite away from their lines, while there are some that are somewhat away from their marks. The latter I guess isn't too much of a big deal as when driving, it's not too noticeable. However, the biggest one for me is Netherlands where the DRS board is quite a bit past where the line is. (DRS Zone just after Turn 10. Although on a side note, the DRS boards for the final corner aren't aligned either.) Another from the top of my head is Hungary for the start/finish straight but I digress. Interestingly while I type this out, I remembered Netherlands was shown on the F1 Games Youtube Channel and I just watched it back now, and even here, the DRS board is actually aligned with the white line. Update: Upon watching it back a second time and comparing in-game before posting this, I realised it's actually the white line/DRS Zone itself that's moved? In-game, the white line lines up with the barrier on the left, whereas in the video, it doesn't. So I guess there was a further tweak after this stage of development and the DRS Zone was moved but the boards weren't? 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. All game modes. 5. Every time. Nothing really to replicate but: Start a Time Trial at Netherlands. Drive to the DRS Zone in Sector 2 and you'll see the gap between the white line on track and the DRS boards. 6. Restarting game, restarting the session, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshot of the gap between the DRS Board and the white line.
  2. 1. When your tyres hit 60% you get a warning. On the MFD tabs, there will be a red section but it will be in the wrong place for the F2 and Classic Cars. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. Grand Prix and Championships 5. Every time. To replicate for example: Start a Grand Prix at Britain Short set to 25% race distance in an F2 car. During the race you should hit 60% on the front left, or I did at least. Once you hit 60%, you'll get the warning and you'll see a red bar on the MFD which will be on the wrong menu. Should the above quicker way fail, set it to 50% race distance instead and just keep driving around on the same set of tyres until you hit 60% tyre wear. (This is how I did it for Classic Cars.) 6.

  3. 1. Maybe intentional, but when finishing a race in a Classic Car, the results screen doesn't have the purple text for the Fastest Lap like it does with F1 and F2. This is the case whether it's a Spec, Single Class or Multi-Class Race. The only reason I can think for this choice is maybe the coloured text is programmed to include the points for the fastest lap with it? Therefore not used for the Classic Cars? 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. Grand Prix and Championships 5. Every time. To replicate: Start a Grand Prix with Classic Cars and finish it. (Or you can just retire from session.) You'll see that the fastest lap of the race isn't given the purple text like it is with F1 and F2. 6. Restarting game, restarting the session, flashbacks 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshot showing an example.
  4. 1. A minor one but I noticed in comparison to the full Bahrain circuit that a white line seems to have an issue? This is at Turn 3. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. All game modes. 5. Every time. To replicate: Start Time Trial at Bahrain Short. Drive to Turn 3 and use Photo Mode for a closer look. 6. Restarting session, restarting the game, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshots showing the comparison. The first is the full track, the second is Bahrain Short.
  5. 1. In a 25% race distance setting while driving an F2 car, you're unable to change your starting tyre. This is okay in 3 or 5 lap races with everyone being on the same tyre, but in a 25% race distance, the grid can be completely mixed up with different starting tyres. I tested this further today and it seems to be track specific. These tracks are: Australia (Sprint Race) Bahrain (Sprint Race) Bahrain Short (Sprint Race) Vietnam (Feature and Sprint Race) China (Sprint Race) Netherlands (Feature and Sprint Race) Britain Short (Feature Race) Russia (Feature Race) USA (Sprint Race) USA Short (Sprint Race) Brazil (Sprint Race) On a side note, there's also no mandatory pitstop at this race distance like there is with F1. I assume this is by design due to the less number of laps ran in comparison? 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. Grand Prix and Championships (First noticed it in Championships a few days ago, but did all the above testing in Grand Prix Mode.) 5. Every time at the tracks listed above. To easily replicate: Start an F2 Grand Prix at Netherlands with both the Feature and Sprint Races set to 25%. Once loaded, you'll see that the only options you have are "Car Setup" and "Start Race." There's no "Race Strategy" option so you can't change tyres. If you start the race and pause and go on Race Director, you'll be able to see a mixed grid on different tyres. 6.

    Tyre Temperature Glitch

    1. This is an update from my post back in the Beta about this issue and it's a long post, so thanks for reading it all. It may be with the Developers already so apologies if it already is. Basically, when sitting on the grid for a while, you can see on the steering wheel that your left rear tyre will start to lose temperature for some reason. It'll also lose temperature while you're on the race strategy screen too. In the dry, this can get to as low as 55 degrees and in the wet, 25 degrees. The tyre temperature will go back to normal once you start the race, but if you have the Formation Lap setting on, it becomes a slight issue. You are able to (or maybe should be able to) bring the temperature back up if you complete the formation lap, but if you pause and choose to skip it, you'll start the race with the temperature at that low level that you started with. Restarting the session at this point doesn't help as it'll just restart you back to the race start sequence and you'll be stuck with this low temperature. If you restart on the formation lap though, that'll take you back to the pre-race part and have the tyre temperature back to normal. That's what I had based on the Beta, but now after testing it some more in the full game, I've realised some more things: It appears to be track dependant. The list of these tracks are: Spain (I tested this one the most and it was 100% reoccurring.) France Austria Russia However, after testing all tracks, I found out other tracks can have the issue on a different tyre or have it worse where it affects more than one tyre. The list of these tracks are: Bahrain Short - Right Rear Tyre Only (This one only happened two or three times and was fine in the other attempts.) Hungary - Front and Rear Left Tyres Belgium - Front Left Tyre Only Japan - Both Rear Tyres Japan Short - Both Rear Tyres Brazil - Both Front Tyres Abu Dhabi - Right Rear Tyre Only There was then another slight issue I came across. The tracks where this issue doesn't occur, the game could load you in with the tyres already at a low temperature. (See screenshot below.) I found two fixes for this. First, if you change tyres (only possible if you haven't done qualifying) on the Race Strategy, your temperatures would shoot up to a normal temperature and remain there, seemingly always being 90 degrees on the front tyres, 85 on the rear tyres. The second is to just carry on initially with the low temperatures, but restart the session when on the formation lap. This will also bring temperatures back to normal. I can confirm that the former also works for the tracks that have the issues, however it's temporary and your temperature will start to go down again. I think that's about it. Hopefully this information helps! 😃 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. I tested all this in Grand Prix but it's possible it could cross over other modes, and I do remember it appearing Online on the last game too. 5. Every time. To replicate: Start a Grand Prix at Spain with Formation Lap on and in Gameplay Settings, have Tyre Temperature set to Surface & Carcass. Sit on the grid for about 2 minutes before selecting "Start Race" so your tyre temperature can drop. Select "Start Race" and then pause, and select "Skip Formation Lap". Now you'll start the race with your tyre temperatures low. 6. Restarting the session, restarting game, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Video showing the issue: Link Screenshot showing that you can be loaded in with the temperatures already low for the tracks that don't have the issue of the temperature decreasing while sat on the grid:
  7. 1. The pit lane line on the track map rejoins the track too early to where the speed trap is, instead of continuing down the straight and around the inside of Turn 1 before then rejoining the track on the exit. 2.

  8. 1. The pit lane line on the track map rejoins the track too early on the straight, instead of continuing down the straight and rejoining a bit further down. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4.

  9. 1. I noted this during the Beta but I never saw what the outcome was as it was only a week before launch I think, so I thought I'd record it again and note it. Apologies if it's already with the developers. Basically when in the pit lane, your camera gets restricted once your car starts turning into the pit box so that you can only look ahead or behind. During this point, if you look behind, the camera will shake for some reason. This issue only happens with the "Near Chase" and "Far Chase" camera angles. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. Grand Prix (I expect it happens in all where you can pit though.) 5. Every time. To replicate: Start a Grand Prix Make a pitstop. Use the instant replay with either Chase Camera and you'll see the camera shaking. 6. Restarting the game, restarting session, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Video showing the issue: Link
  10. 1. I was recording for a different issue when I came across this one just now. A bit of a minor one but if you make a pitstop in a race and leave the pit box and then view the instant replay, you can cause the lights to change depending on your actions. For example: When you leave your pit box, the light will be green. Now when you use the instant replay and rewind to before your pit stop, every time you pause, your pit box light will change from red to green. Tapping L2/R2 or playing the replay will make it switch to red again. If you now use a flashback and view the instant replay again before getting to your pit box, the light will now stay green. If you now resume and let your car drive into the pit box so the light turns red, then use the instant replay, you will now have the first part happen again but in reverse! So this time, whenever it's paused, the light will be red, while tapping L2/R2 or playing the replay will change it to green. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. Grand Prix Mode (I expect it can be done in all modes.) 5. Every time. To replicate, start a Grand Prix Race and then make a pitstop, then follow the description above. 6. Restarting session, restarting the game, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original PS4. 8. Video showing the glitch: Link
  11. 1. I noticed in comparison to the full USA track that there are some missing brake boards. These are at Turns 1 and 12 based on the full circuit. The latter isn't a huge deal as there are some on the ground still. I'm not sure if it's a case of them being invisible, but I can't try and check due to the Photo Mode being limited by the barrier just in front of the fence. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. All game modes. 5. Every time. To replicate: Start a Time Trial at USA Short Open Photo Mode at the above corners mentioned for a better look to see they are missing. 6. Restarting session, restarting the game, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshots comparing USA Short to the full circuit.
  12. 1. Similar to the Singapore thread, some brake boards around Russia seem to have an issue. Not sure the possible cause with these ones, maybe something to do with just how they're placed on the wall since it lines up with it? Doesn't happen to all boards though and some have this issue worse than others, but the boards in question are at Turns: 4, 5, 7, 10 and 13. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. All game modes. 5. Every time. Again, not much to replicate but: Start a Time Trial at Russia Open Photo Mode at the mentioned corners for a closer look at the boards. 6. Restarting game, restarting the session, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshot showing an example.
  13. 1. I could be wrong and this is intentional, but I noticed some brake boards around Belgium have a red marking on them. At first, I thought it was just the 50m and 150m boards, but then I realised that the 100m boards have it as well but on the bottom of them. I'm not sure if this is like Singapore where it could be to do with a missing sponsor on the back? As the only brake boards that have this marking, have the sponsor "Emirates Fly Better" sponsor on the back, which are only at Turn 8. The brake boards in question are the ones on the fence and are at the following corners: Turns 1 and 18. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. All game modes. 5. Every time. Not much to replicate but: Start a Time Trial at Belgium Open Photo Mode and go to Turns 18 (final chicane) and Turn 1 and see the brake boards on the fence. 6. Restarting game, restarting the session, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshots showing an example and the boards that have the "Emirates Fly Better" sponsor on the back that I think it could be related to.
  14. 1. On the majority of the brake boards at Singapore, there seems to be a graphical issue on them. This happens on the majority of the boards at the following corners: 1, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15/16, 18 and 22. Some only have this issue on the front, some only have it on the back and some can have it on both sides. I may be wrong but if I had to guess, I think it could be to do with the missing sponsor on the back? As some that don't have an issue, have the "P Zero" sponsor on the back, which would somewhat match this shadow like issue. I have a screenshot for an example of this where one 50m board has the issue while the other on the other side of the track doesn't. On the back, the one that is fine is the only one that has the sponsor. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. All game modes. 5. Every time. Not much to replicate but: Start Time Trial at Singapore. Open Photo Mode and go to the various boards at the corners mentioned and you'll see the issue. 6. Restarting game, restarting the session, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshots showing the issue, as well as showing the sponsor that I think could be the cause.
  15. 1. Whichever driver gets the fastest lap in the Feature Race, will also be shown to have gotten the fastest lap in the Sprint Race, regardless of if they actually did or not. The points WILL be given to the correct driver though. So this is just a visual error. 2. PS4 3. Version 1.04 4. Grand Prix (I think it happens in Championships too.) 5. Tested it a good 5 or 6 times just now and it happened every time. To replicate: Start an F2 Grand Prix with Feature and Sprint Races. Grab the fastest lap in the Feature Race, but make sure not to in the Sprint Race. Once you get to the results screen for the Sprint Race, it'll show you as having the fastest lap of the race, even though you didn't. 6. Restarting game, restarting the session, flashbacks. 7. Dualshock 4, external HDD and the original base PS4. 8. Screenshots showing the example.
