    Race starts SLOW compared to A.I

    Anyone want to explain a good launch technique?

    2019 lap times v previous years

    This is my point, A 1.19 for Spain is nowhere near the 1.15 Bottas did in qualifying this year. I don't know how to explain this any clearer; regardless of talking my best times or the leading leaderboard times or the AI times into consideration, the picture is exactly the same... in previous years they've managed to get the ultimate pace of the cars pretty damn accurate against RL times, but for F12019 they've dropped the ball and are considerably off. Another poster has offered a logical explanation for this which is that in RL they expected the new regulations to make the cars slower this year but that hasn't transpired to be the case and so there will be a performance patch for the game coming which will bring the ultimate speeds more inline with RL. Hope they do because it's pretty underwhelming driving a 2019 spec car with 2016 pace!
  3. That all sounds logical/reasonable - I hope you're right!

    2019 lap times v previous years

    Let me explain. F1 changes regulations from time to time and cars and engines develop more performance as you probably know . The current 2019 cars are amongst the fastest monsters there have ever been in F1. WAY faster than 2016 cars for example, SIX AND A HALF SECONDS to be precise (in Spain). I was really looking forwards to getting my hands on the 2019 game for the extra power and downforce they now produce (these are telemetry facts). The best times I was able to do in F12015, 16 and 18 were all within 1 second of the RL pole times. In F12019 I am between 3 and 5 seconds away. Clearly F12019 is less accurate/realistic than previous years. Can you not appreciate that is disappointing to have purchased the latest game only to discover the car performance is worse than it was 2 years ago yet the cars RL cars have evolved through regulation changes and development and are now much faster? Let's not overcomplicate the arguement. These cars are slower than they should be. They've got it pretty much spot on before so they've dropped a bollock.

    F1 cars have no grip and no downforce

    This is factually wrong. The TT car is basically an optimal car on an optimal track and it's a fixed thing. So in comparison these cars are slower per lap than TT cars in 2017. Whereas RL cars are quicker. End of/

    F1 cars have no grip and no downforce

    The top guys race at speeds well over 100% AI... and Austria is a short track so you can add 0.5 sec so he's nearly 2 seconds off and Austria is actually one of the more realistic tracks v RL times (along with Canada and Baku weirdly). I'd like to see Limitless get anywhere near the 1.15.5 Pole time in Spain or the 1.28.3 in France!!! Not a snowballs chance in hell.

    F1 cars have no grip and no downforce

    Whats difficult to understand? At 100% the pole time should be sensibly close to the RL time. As it was in previous years. Now suddently this game is 3-4 sec slower per track and the time is being lost mostly in a straight line and a bit in high speed sectors. The opposite of RL's performance gains.

    F1 cars have no grip and no downforce

    No, you can't. I can do a 1.22.0 in Monza but this year the pole time (assuming dry) will be in the 1.18's at least, maybe even a 1.17. In F12016 I could do a 21.7 and the pole time then was a 21.1. Monza is a high speed track which is like 80% full throttle. Clearly the F12019 car's DON'T have enough top end power/straight line speed, because suddenly I'm 4 seconds off and 80% of the lap is full throttle so where pray tell am I meant to make up the time???

    Honestly, The Physics Are Terrible

    My view is the physics are really good but there is not enough high speed downforce or power.
  10. This video proves a another point I am making about car speed in another topic. It seems pretty accurate at low-med speed/gears 1-4 but 5-8 they are not pulling/reving enough. F12019 cars need to keep pulling and get to 8th about 10% quicker than they do at the moment. At the moment the thing feels and sounds a bit guttless through 6th, 7th and 8th. In RL Power Unit development is such that these engines are 100hp up on where they were 24 months ago, yet they don't feel/sound like it.

    Problem with my car speed

    I use a Trustmaster F150 and on a few occasions I've lost acceleration compared to other cars. This usually happens after a couple of hours. So I shut down and restart my PS4 and it's all good again. Guess my wheel is dying on me...
  12. I'm not convinced the F12019 cars are as quick as they should be... anyone else have this feeling??? I didn't have the 2018 game but here are some comparable times: Australia My best TT time F12017 1.22.748 -------- Actual pole time 1.22.188 My best TT time F12019 1.23.671 -------- Actual pole time 1.20.486 Bahrain My best TT time F12017 1.29.262 -------- Actual pole time 1.28.769 My best TT time F12019 1.30.196 -------- Actual pole time 1.27.886 Spain My best TT time F12017 1.19.695 -------- Actual pole time 1.19.141 My best TT time F12019 1.20.927 -------- Actual pole time 1.15.506 Monaco My best TT time F12017 1.12.054 -------- Actual pole time 1.12.178 My best TT time F12019 1.12.287 -------- Actual pole time 1.10.240 So, I'm not the world's fastest sim driver by any means, but I'm pretty respectable, top 1/3 on the leaderboards. Now, allowing for the fact I haven't had the F12019 long, I can probably find 1 sec per lap per track, but I have done thousands of laps on codemasters games over the years so am pretty familiar and I am convinced the F12019 cars are clearly too slow compared to the F12017 cars and present day RL times. The pace of the F12019 car in Spain is ridiculously slow compared to RL. These cars have got another 100hp compared to 2017 and I'm just not feeling that, especially at the top end in 6th 7th and 8th gears they're guttless, like I've lost 100hp. And as for downforce, these cars don't seem to be as quick through fast corners, definitely not as quick through T1/2 or Campsa... which is the opposite to what should be true, since they widened the wings in 2018. Ok they simplified the front wings for this year but telemetry doesn't lie, they ARE quicker in fast corners in RL and as for overall laptime, pole this year was a 15.5... I'm now over 5 seconds off where I used to be 0.5 off. I could give you all my times for every track and the picture is crystal clear. I think these cars need another 10% hp and more high speed downforce compared to RL. Anyone else agree?

    Inter-team Driver Transfers CONFIRMED for F1 2019!

    Why does everything need to be exactly as you'd expect? (a) it's a game and (b) I am sure you expect different things to me so it's impossible.
  14. Yawn. Perhaps it's so realistic that some people think its real... 99% of the bugs reported are phantom, misunderstood or grossly exaggerated by the resident bug hunters. Same broken record every year.
