    Please help me understand what is going on here?

    You may need to up your throttle saturation in settings/control,vibration&forcefeedback/Controller preset/edit/calibration/Throttle saturation.......In the calibration settings you can test button inputs by pressing them and seeing if you get 100% or not. Hope this helps

    Time Trial Cheaters

    I know it's frustrating but you may be better to blank out the names on your sent post because it's against forum rules to name an shame on the codies forum. They do need sorting though I fully agree @mrddevil

    General race setup

    @MilligramSmile you can set up an unranked practice session (90 mins max) by yourself or with AI if you choose note it won't let you go to a qualy or race session unless another person joins your session before the 90 mins are up. I've found grand prix mode to be OP on grip and qualy times for my liking when it comes to setting up my car for racing.

    Equal performance on offline - Grand Prix Mode

    90 mins practice is what you can do unless someone joins the session it kicks you after that.

    Anyone use a PS4 controller with no traction control?

    What as helped me also with this is bumping up my steering linearity. At first until I got a good feel for it I went up as much as 5 but gradually being able to tone it down to 3 and tend to use 1-2 for tracks like monaco were you need more snappy steering inputs. It has helped me with more stability out of slow corners due to not having such twitchy inputs in my steering. I wouldn't recommend going much higher with this setting as it does make your steering more dull at times when you need turn in. My throttle linearity is between 25-35 depending on which track. Hope this helps @TylerRunsThis

    No assists

    Adding to your steering linerty makes steering less twitchy I wouldn't go much higher than 5 as it will make steering feel dull but it does help with smoother inputs when turning. Like I said go to Time trial and play with these settings until you feel comfortable.

    No assists

    I'm also new to no traction this year with a ps4 pad what as helped me with this is under the controller calibration tab ive bumped up steering linerty initially to 5 then gradually turned it down to what is now between 2-3 as I've got used to it. I feel this helps with snap oversteer on corner exit. Ive also bumped up throttle linerty again initially up to 35 at first to get confidence and now currently I'm using 10-15. I suggest going into a time trial session and playing with these settings and if you can do 5-10 laps without spinning your halfway there. Hope this help you buddy. Happy racing ✌

    Gearbox failed at first race

    You need to put this in the technical assistance part of the forum try look if there's a thread already made before creating a new one and put it in there so to help the Devs with having multiple threads on the same issue. https://forums.codemasters.com/forum/111-gameplay-issues-and-bugs-ta/

    Lack of handling change for tyre wear / wing damage

    I punctured my front right tyre and could still go full throttle there was a bit of inbalance driving the car but no were near enough.
  12. Even though I'm seeing that abs is the smart way to go I refuse to go back I'm down to just auto gears and corner only line. I chose to strip away assists for the first time this year and im not as fast as yet but with more practice I feel I could surpass previous years with some more time and patience.

    There should be a code inside your case to redeem in the playstation store.

    Williams/Mercedes old liveries still in game?

    It was discussed in the beta that the williams was ready to go and would be available come the day 1 patch but the mercedes was put on codies at the very last minute like @GTRraser.at says and will take a bit longer to add into the game. Im guessing also it won't just be the car livery that needs changing it be the pit crew and cut scenes etc.

    What is Broadcast Mix under Audio Options?

    Basically "on" means you will hear sounds which you would hear watching t.v or "off" means what the driver actually hears in the cockpit like engine noise and lockups. I personally turn it off as I want to hear what you would if you was sat in the cockpit. 👍

    "optimal" controller calibration/settings?

    For smoother inputs if using the 12 o clock method with the thumps sticks I think the best way is 12-11-10-09 o'clock for left turns and 12-1-2-3 for right turns I see it on a youtube video if I can find it I'll post it was in German though if I remember rightly. @Scrogg @Scrogs

    Fuel mix and ERS F1 2019

    Keep to that technique it is recommended for smoother steering inputs which results in better tyre wear.

    As DRS is on a straight you don't need to worry about steering inputs as such. 👍

    Fuel mix and ERS F1 2019

    I Forgot to mention I use L3 for drs also. Auto ers is ok but if you want better lap times its a good idea to use manual especially if your league racing online.

    If you use @ZtwoA mapping you can use r3 to look behind that's how ive got it and works well for me 👍
