  1. I don't have an answer (and am sort of curious myself), but DirectX 11 works on Windows 7, so that's not going to be a reason to exclude Windows 7.

    Mechanical failure

    I play 100% races, season after season, career after career, and.. well, I can sort of understand the frustration-response. I think I'd be very frustrated and upset if I lost the championship at the last moment due to mechanical trouble, but.. well, two buts: 1) Said frustration would not be with the game, but with my poor luck. 2) There is a flip-side, where if I become champion because my competition experiences mechanical failures that I do not, it just ends up feeling like a cheap win Frustration is (easily, and unsurprisingly) explained as a bad thing, but the best games are ones that make you feel it all, not just the good things, like how a well-written character in a story can really get under your skin while the bland one just leaves you unaffected. This is about emotion that's supposed to be there, a negative sensation that you experience because you're invested, instead of a championship that feels hollow because the opposition was handicapped. Leave the option turned off by default to protect people that just want their painless race, sure, but perhaps see fit to allow others to enhance their experience and emotional investment?

    Radio menu active too long

    I wasn't sure at first whether to respond to this topic, but this is exactly my experience too, I don't use it because whenever I try, it's gone before I found what I'm after. Going to also +1 the suggestion for an on/off toggle instead of having it on a timer, so that people that want it gone faster can do that too.

    Flash backs in 2020

    Back when we were limited to just a handful at most, doing 100% races on keyboard was an absolute nightmare on some tracks, and I was incredibly happy to see that go. I wouldn't be opposed to adding in an extra option, but am getting chills at the thought that a useful assist against hardware deficiency could be made effectively useless again thanks to people with no impulse control. There's plenty of opportunity between activating the option and actually resetting time to stop yourself, to say "no, I shouldn't be using a flashback for this" and cancel out of it.

    Manager mode

    With Frontier just having obtained an exclusive license for F1 management games, it strikes me as a bit unlikely that the CM games will the comprehensive kind of management that people are hoping for/wanting. I'd love to be wrong, but I don't think we should be getting our hopes up here.

    F3 in the game?

    I would love it if they expanded on building up a career towards F1. I have my concerns about it being done well, though, because I'm not overly impressed with the current implementation of F2, but I did consider it a step in the right direction. I never really got along with Project Cars, which is a shame, because exactly this part of the experience is what I appreciated and was still missing. Yearly releases like this one aren't known for sweeping changes or drastic improvements, rather adding bits every time, so I guess for now I'd be happy with seeing that improving this aspect is still on their radar.

    Codemasters Confirmed- ALL 22 tracks

    I for one didn't feel there was a basis for reference to form an expectation on. In the past they've left out races that were canceled that season, but this year is unlike any of those situations. It had seemed like a good idea to me, just putting out the game as originally intended, but I wasn't certain that it would happen, and was glad with the confirmation.
  8. Not cynical. I would not have made a thread like this because it has only happened to me that one time, and I've gotten over it, but as @steviejay69 points out there is an obvious place to add in such an option, and while it only happened to me once, this thread wouldn't exist if it hadn't also happened to other people, so it seems to me like we're talking about a small adjustment that would solve a fairly rare occurrence of a lot of frustration. You won't see me throwing a hissy fit if they don't/never add this option, but if there's a low-effort way of preventing frustration, even if rare, then it sounds like a good idea to me.
  9. I don't hang around here much until I pick up news of the upcoming game somewhere (that is probably not very uncommon) but I play an absolutely ungodly amount of career mode, season after season, 100% race after 100% race, and it has happened to me a grand total of one time that I only had used tires remaining, was driving on the only set that would get me to the end and my front wing got damaged so much that I would've lost more time carrying on like that than replacing it during a stop... except I ended up having to stop twice because I got put on tires that wouldn't get me to the end. I believe that was F1 2017, the only time that it happened to me, but I remember the frustration in that moment well enough, which resulted in my yes-vote here.
