  1. Pad is not faster but it has hidden assists that make it more forgiving than a wheel. Pretty much every racing game does this. The amount of time you put in is more important than equipment. You can be equally fast on either of them.
  2. I use parts in the race until they hit 60% wear, the repercussions from the worn parts are more noticeable when I hit this percentage. After that I only use them in practice until they are completely worn out. I’ll take an extra PU and start from the back once or twice in a season. I do this to ensure I have fresh parts in the final few races. I usually do this in Canada, Austria or Belgium since it’s easy to pass on those tracks. It also helps to run your car in the lean fuel mode when doing practice sessions. It will save your ICE and Turbo.
  3. I also feel a bit burnt out on the series. My team is a nice addition, but overall the game still does feel kind of shallow, but tbh I always felt this way about Codemaster games for some reason. There's just something about their games that just doesn't gel with me. The most frustrating part for me is the lack of driving standards in ranked MP, I have no motivation to rank up when I'm constantly just trying to avoid being taken out by someone who is completely out of their depth. And even if I do reach max rank, then I will probably just have a hard time finding lobbies so what's the poi
  4. Is this common on PC? I play on PS4 have never had a problem like this.

    Hi, currently on PS4 and have been playing this series since 2010. Give the option to back out when in the "Communicating with online services... please wait" screen. Sometimes it doesn't connect and you have to restart the game because it's stuck there. This sometimes happens to me when trying to join ranked lobbies. Have a filter for no assists on the time trial leaderboards. Show replays for the top 10 on all the leaderboards. Polyphony Digital added this in GTS and it's been very helpful in outing cheaters and learning tracks. Cross platform play. Racing g
  6. I'm all for no assists in ranked lobbies, but then I think they would be dead. For something like this they need cross platform play.
  7. I went through 10 event gearboxes in season one despite upgrades. The problem seems to have gone away in season two though. After the first two races I’m only at 19% wear. I have not changed my driving. I had this exact same problem in F1 2019 career.
  8. I had this exact same problem in 2019, the problem persisted until season 2 even after they patched it. Just finished Suzuka, now on my 9th event gearbox and taking another penalty at the next race.
  9. I guess it depends on how much you enjoy driving irl. Personally I love driving any kind of vehicle irl, so using a wheel in a game made a lot of sense for me. I made the switch to a G29 when Gran Turismo Sport launched a few years back and I have no regrets. I wish I would have done it sooner, I can never go back to playing racing games with a gamepad. But I wouldn’t splurge on anything too expensive just incase you lose interest. I use my G29 with a wheel stand pro and a Poang chair from Ikea. It’s a good temporary setup if you play in the living room and need to put it away after,
  10. Cockpit with a bit more vertical height. The halo column doesn’t bother me. I used T-cam when I played these games with a controller. Now that I use a wheel, I prefer cockpit for that little bit extra immersion.
  11. I have this same issue in My Team. Currently at Monza in season 1 and on my 7th gearbox. I will probably need to take the 8th one in Singapore or else I'll have problems during the race. I have some durability upgrades installed but they don't seem to be making a difference. Standard PS4 G29 - no driving assists 25% races 1.05
  12. There was a similar issue in the previous game iirc.
  13. I'm at Monza in my first season and I'm on my 7th gearbox. They last 2-3 races, if I use them in the third race then I usually have problems. I bought durability upgrades but they don't seem to be working. All races at 25%, using a G29 with no driving assists.
  14. Team Penske - Mercedes The livery is nothing special, but it reminds me of Joseph Newgarden's Hitachi car.

    The car could just be too draggy as well.
