    Why F1 2019 career sucks

    I think a lot of peoples misery would be helped if they played in Championship mode rather than Career mode. Just sayin'.

    AI Difficulty Settings, Track to Track

    I'm finding China, Baku and especially France to be by far the hardest to be competitive, I went from qualifying 2nd in Canada to 20th in France (Ai 98, season 2).

    Career Mode - Lack of Racing Incidents

    I'm up to Silverstone in Season 2 and yet to see a SC or VSC, so this is quite blatantly pathetic! I saw a massive shunt in my rear view mirror during the first lap in Canada which took about 5 cars out, bouncing off the walls at the turn 3/4... if that's doesn't trigger it, dunno what will. Amazingly in the Race Director page, no DNF's for that shunt! I have full damage and SC on so I guess the probability is just set way too low.

    Career Mode - Lack of Racing Incidents

    I've nearly completed 1 season and I'm yet to see a SC or a VSC phase. nearly every race one AI car pulls off with a mechanical issue and after a yellow flag for one lap it's gone, excitement over. I guess I could try to cause a pile up that might bring out the SC, but that would defeat the object...!
  5. I bought the Prost/Senna version on PS4 store and I am struggling to understand what "extra" I've got. The loading screen looks just like the normal Hamilton/Vettel UK packaging. I seem to have given my profile driver a Senna helmet and Prost overalls - the later pointless in career mode... and I've not seen either of their cars yet, or any Senna/Prost challenges or anything. Guess I've just wasted money on next to nothing?

    2019 lap times v previous years

    OK the 1.5 patch has definitely helped. I need to go and set TT times again but on career it looks to be worth a couple of seconds per lap. If I can get within 1 sec of RL I'll be happy. Spain and one or two others might remain a challenge!

    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!

    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.

    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...
