    F1 2019 car sounds

    I don't have the game so I can't fully judge but after having watched streams and gameplay videos I'm a but puzzled by the car sounds in F1 2019. Namely, why is it that all the cars resemble a vacuum cleaner in cockpit view? They don't have the engine sound, they just whistle. In replays and regarding other cars you can hear that their sounds are great, but your own car just whistles. I mean videos like this, and there are many others. Now, the very first video Codemasters has released of F1 2019, where Daniel Ricciardo is driving in Bahrein has a completely fine engine sound to it. I mean this video. The sound is perfectly fine here but in the final game (at least from the videos and live streams) all I can hear is the whistling of the car, no matter which one the player drives. Is it really like this in the game or is something just lost in video/audio encoding?

    [F1 2019] Lukas and Devon

    I want real drivers in Career, just as in prior F1 games. I think it should stay true to the sport and not force this made-up selection of drivers on us. It's an officially licensed game after all, so no need to replace real drivers in the field. It would definitely make the experience less immersive, especially if these new characters replace big names at big teams.

    I guess the answer is no but it has to be asked. Will it be possible to disable this "rivals" feature in F1 2019's career mode? It's absolutely not realistic to have two fictional characters in the field, replacing two real drivers in the process. And I personally wouldn't like to see this story mode-esque cut-scene drama in an F1 game. It's fine in GRID or whatever but not in F1. It would be welcome if we had the option to turn these two chaps off.

    FINALLY, GRID 2019!

    If it runs at 60 fps on consoles, I'm in. Otherwise I'll pass. I'm done with the jerky 30 fps totally motion-blurred Ego-engine graphics. F1 and DiRT are great as they are, I seriously hope Codemasters won't sacrifice performance for flashy effects for the arcade crowd.

    Missing Impreza?

    I can confirm the Impreza is not in the garage on Xbox still. I've seen it before for purchase but since the shop's stock is rotating it can't be purchased right now. I got the Focus fine. Restarting doesn't help.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    I would call this many things but realistic. 🙂

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    I don't really have a major problem with the field (as you can see from the times) but one AI car has an unrealistic time. It can't be so much faster than the rest while the whole field is more or less on the same level. This is what bugs me about this. Is it so different between classes? Maybe I should try a different car class which has more realistic AI times?

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    I know this has been discussed before but yesterday I played more Career mode and I found something completely off. I hope you can see the attached photo. It is the end result of the New Zealand rally in "Clubman" tier. Yes, I'm the Hungarian dude in second place. But there is something absolutely incredible going on there if you look at the final times. How come there is one AI that completes the rally (6 stages) 1 minute 20 seconds faster than any other AI cars? How can it be so much faster when it's only "Clubman" difficulty? I would agree I must be a noob if every AI was faster than me but you can see I completed the rally quite well, I beat all of them (I won 3 stages out of 6) but yet that one AI is ridiculously faster than all the others. Like that S. Bernard was from another tier completely. This is what makes Career mode so hard to enjoy. You go extremely well, in the green, you win stages but then the game decides that one AI is 1:20 faster than the rest, and 0:36 faster than you. How does the game simulate these times? And why does this happen at even the second difficulty level? On a different note, I was playing in Free Play as well and it is ridiculous. I put the AI difficulty down to minimum (1/100)! When I drove the R5 VW Golf, I could win any stage with huge amounts of time, I mean even more than a minute. Obviously not a challenge. However, at the same difficulty I switched to the H2 FWD class (VW Golf) and I lost every stage, the AI was way too fast, even on the minimum difficulty setting. Something must be glitched in this game because there's no way there's so much difference in my driving between different classes. This makes the game completely unpredictable, random and very hard to enjoy.
