  1. No firewall. Same issue wired and wireless. Turned Wi Fi off and disconnected the network cable and the game still won’t get to the main menu.

    Stopped working when 1.14 was installed so it’s related to that patch. Noticed another post on here with the same issue.

    Need this fixed please or give us a way to roll back to 1.13 so at least we can get some use out of this game.


    • A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. 

    No error codes, gets to the part where it asked to press start. It crashes back to the xbox menu when it says connecting to online services.

    • Platform

    Xbox One

    • What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 


    • Game-mode?

    None - can't start

    • We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again?

    All the time

    • How do you make the problem happen?

    Switch Xbox on - start F1 2020 and press start and it crashes

    • What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue 

    Removed and reinstalled game, restarted xbox, going off line and disconnecting the network cable

    • What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) 

    Logitech G920

    • Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears.   

    Crashes when connecting to services. Can upload video if required.

  3. F1 2020 has completely stopped working on my sons Xbox one. 

    When he first had the game and he got to season 4 within a month, the My Team career mode wouldn’t load ever since then.

    Now since patch 1.14 the game game won’t load at all. Attempts to connect to online services and then crashes to Xbox menu. Removed network cable and still the same. Uninstalled it. Reinstalled it, still the same.

    No error codes. Using a Logitech G920

    Please can this fixed as he hasn’t been able to play this fully since about a month after release. He’s disappointed after we preordered this.

    Hi guys, I’ll go straight to the point with this probably useless topic.

    I’ve been playing F1 for 8 years and I am thinking about giving up with the franchise.

    ”ok who cares, stop bothering us, we are enjoying the game”.

    The game is in fact enjoyable, I have to say it’s challenging, has great graphics and it has the official license so most of the users (casual players mostly) will be happy with it, but there’s a thing I want you to think about:

    this game is utterly shallow, dull and lifeless.

    Why? Because in general, it has no “mojo”, it’s not “dynamic” and “alive”. Randomness, unexpected things and human aspects of racing are completely missing.

    I know it must be hard to put life in a game with complex mechanics like a racing one but I think it should be one of the main missions for a developer.
    That’s why I’m giving up with it, it is just the same thing repeating every damn time, in every mode, in every track, zero new scenarios, zero entertainment besides the race itself.
    Please think about it, F1 fans like it because of passion and the race dynamics: I DON’T WANT A SIM and I am not hatin, I just want to enjoy a good licensed game that translate well the vibes from the track to the pc / consoles.
    I would like to give you some examples of things that really destroy the good racing vibes and shuts down every feeling I have for this game.


    - LET ME DRIVE MY CAR!! This really drives me crazy. I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DRIVE TILL THE END OF THE FORMATION LAP TO MY PLACE IN THE GRID, IN THE PIT AND AFTER A CRASH. Let us park the car after a failure or drive it to the pits, IT IS SO HARD?! That’s the main cause of my frustration, I really can’t stand it and I can’t believe I’m the only one who thinks this. Too hard for casual gamers? Toggle button!


    - Very rigid physics in general. Cars seems VERY heavy, I mean too heavy

    - AI behaves weird, like they are glued to the ground, if you hit them they don’t spin but if they touch you, it’s DNF for shure. Most of peoples says F1 it’s not wreckfest but AI cars are a 300 Km/h war tanks 

    - AI does not care about where you are / breaktests you sometimes

    - I have NEVER witness a first corner accident / yellow flag / safety car ecc, and I’ve been playing A LOT. Very disappointing. I don’t want a carnage, just a minimum of unpredictability, the game now seems scripted, I know AI will never DNF in the first lap of the race

    - Safety Car bugs, in 2020 there’s the same bug of the previous years, it is not coming out. Some virtual SF every now and then.

    - Safety car line bugs, like other drivers sometimes overtake you even if you are right back of the car in front, you just ghost and the driver behind pass through you, boom, position lost

    - Incredibile load game bug: sometimes when I resume a session loading in the middle of the race the car has no power, barely full revving in 7th gear. Very strange

    - Corner cuts. Seriously?! It’s all or nothing, cutting easily most of the turns or getting penalized for touching the Kerb with a tyre. Too inconsistent

    - Damage physics inexplicably terrible, there are too many things to say about this. Just a disaster IMO. Rear and sides of the car are unbreakable AND DON’T TELL ME IT’S ABOUT FOM AND SPONSORS, I don’t want cars to be on fire/totaled, JUST A MINIMUM aesthetic damages. Another ugly thing, little contacts brake the suspensions but sometimes big crashes don’t. What amazes me most is that reviewers / users almost never mention this topic. Let’s remove players falls in FIFA at this point! Unbelievable and unacceptable 

    - I have never drove an F1 car but I’m dubious about the lack of traction of these cars, I mean, without traction control I can easily spin in 5th gear in the last Mexico corner, that’s weird

    - Just a word: multiplayer.

    - Scripted race dynamics

    - boring out of the track contexts, interviews are dull, your race engineer is very repetitive.

    - lack of lap time reference / deltas. Little feature but game changer IMO, would be cool to have time targets for the compound you have or target to react to undercuts etc

    - During races I feel alone, I don’t know what is happening in the race, I can’t develop a good strategy. Where’s the strategist?!


    I know it’s a long outburst and maybe no one will read it but I really had to write this down before selling the game. I just hope new gen will change codies vision of the franchise because IT HAS AN HUGE UNEXPLOITED POTENTIAL!!! 
    Let’s save this game guys PLEASE! 



    Totally agreed. Been buying since F1 2010, and while it’s nice, there’s a huge feeling that there’s there’s so much untapped potential. I can only hope that Formula 1 open the licensing up so there’s no exclusivity. Competition would get things moving in leaps and bounds.

  6. Many good suggestions here.

    Most may well be implemented. The question is when. How much does Codemasters actually need to add to each release of F1 to make you buy the next game while saving enough features for the one after to ensure you buy that one too.
    IMO I find it frustrating as the game is really good and has so much potential but some things feel unfinished (eg car damage has remained limited for years plus you should have to pay for and manufacture replacement parts when damaged)

  7. That’s a pain, need this on a tab somewhere near the testing objectives. Should also show how close you are to completing the objectives- eg lap 58 of 60 completed for bonus.

  8. Disappointing. Here’s my opinion. I feel that The game should have been fully fixed and not require multiple patches well before launch. If the car performance data wasn’t available don’t open preorders and launch an game that’s still in development. Fix the bugs, launch the game when it’s ready and make sure you at least have performance data before setting a launch date. 

    Alternatively, If you really must launch before it’s ready I think you should tell people what performance data you have, what bugs your aware of, and what you expect to fix and update with some time lines so we know what to expect and whether to commit financially and pre order, buy on release, or wait.
