  1. Yes, if every player has NAT Open, basically on the device where you play, in my case it's on Xbox (but yes, it's about port forwarding the traffic on router), than every player is able to make a direct connection to any other players (P2P). https://portforward.com/nat-types/
  2. It is a problem of your players internet connection / networking. Game works as P2P and all people needs to have NAT OPEN because of that. In our league we require players to have NAT OPEN, and it works, but some players can't join the league. But yes, game could also fix it if the sessions were hosted on dedicated servers, but it's not.
  3. 1. During ERS practice program ERS at Spa Overtake ERS mode doesn't discharged battery meter of the practice program. I did not notice it before patch 1.03 (on other tracks), but it worked like when the pointer was at max and I switched to overtake, the pointer indicated fast discharging immediately. Yesterday at Spa, it didn't. 2. Xbox one X 3. 1.03 4. MyTeam 5. Once I usually start lap with settings to none, than use it on the fastest straights. At Spa I used the overtake mode between La Source and end of Kemmel straight and it was discharging, then I switched to none and the battery charge indicator (of the practice program - on top of the screen) filled to max. Then I switched to overtake for the longest straight before the end of lap (visible on linked video). Battery charge on wheel is discharging, but the ERS practice mode meter on the top of the screen is not discharging and program succeeds. 6. None 7.

    Race highlights

    I am not sure if you are just playing with words, anyway I was comparing F1 2019's `highlights` feature with Grand Prix 2 TV camera / broadcast during replay, which was triggered by pressing `insert` if I remember correctly.

    Race highlights

    I'd love to see at least all overtakes in the highlights, because I am actually pretty diapointed as highlights mostly doesn't show very interesting action or at least I know there were much more interesting moments and they are not included. It is just "some moments" from the race, in most cases it it shows the begining of something good and the final great moment like my ala Lando overtake in Bahrain in 4th turn is cut out ... It feel so empty and sad to watch the replay of driving out of turn fast and getting closer to car in front and when the best should come .... a cut ... and nothing ... When I remember the Grand Prix 2, during replay it featured a "TV cam", it was showing the most interesting action what was just happening. Like real TV. If somebody was overtaking or trying to overtake, it was on the screen. If some car crashed or had a technical problem, it was on the screen. etc. ... In 1996 the game already known what is important to see and was able to detect it, so I belive in 2019 the game should also be able to detect what is probably a moment worthy of remembering and should the moment include in highlight reel.

    F1 2020 Features — Suggestions and Ideas

    If I should point to just one idea, than most important for me it is the visor cam - moving head to see into turns like in Project Cars, that's the most important for me. There already is a rotation in the game, but it is connected to wheel angle and when you are making corrections it shakes the view resulting in making it unusable for me. Secondly, pilot is not an engineer and setup should be done or at least advised (again) in a similar way as in Project Cars - you tell your engineer what's wrong/what you need, and he tells you what should be changed or change it for you. At least, it helps new players to know better parts of the cars and the connections between values so they could change the setup better. Also when changing something on the setup - a projected change of telemetry graphs (look at Forza) would be great.
