    Please help me find the perfect difficulty.

    Yeah!, ...a lot of trial and error for me. In the past with Assists (TC & ABS), and TV-Pod View (over the driver's head), I was at 90%. Now without any Assists, and in Cockpit View I'm at 75%, which is challenging and enjoyable for me (I'm fighting mid-pack, and not quite sipping champagne, ...yet). I've always wondered at what point (%) does the AI become unrealistic (i.e Arcade like, unrealistic Lap Times), โ€ฆ.100%+ (????). Or is 110% Level "actually" (real) F1 Lap Time pace? I've never ventured there (100% - 110%), or researched it, so I don't know. But for now 75% seems to be right for me. When I start to get regular Podiums at 75%, I'll increase the % yet again. (I do 5% increase increments).

    F1 game research, your voice matters!

    I agree. Despite some of the niggles, when I'm home (which isn't often enough), I really enjoy playing F1-2019; ...especially now with no Driver Aids & Cockpit View ๐Ÿ˜‰, and I'll be one of the first to buy F1-2020 next year. Hats off to all on here who are offering wonderful suggestions to improve/fix F1-2019 ๐Ÿ‘, and I really hope that, one day, your (our) voices are heard.

    Ideas for improvement [F1 2020]

    I've now added my F1-2020 Wish List to my Signature (below); ...which many here have already mentioned previously, ...lots of times, ...in many different threads... Fingers Crossed I suppose ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    Audio name request for upcoming F1 titles

    Safety car

    Yep; ...I'm now half-way through my 5th Career Season at 100% Race Distance and I've only ever experienced the Safety Car deploy once; ...Spain in Season 3. That's kinda ridiculous, isn't it? I don't want to see the Safety Car constantly deploy, ...but a bit more realism with it would be appreciated. I really like the strategy aspect of F1, hence why I play at 100% Race Distance, and having a Safety Car deploy, when required (for accidents, cars parked on, or near track etc.) would really enhance my enjoyment of the strategy aspect of this game (to pit?, not to pit?, new tyres?, ...which ones?),.....well you guys get the picture. Such a shame really ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Fix Suzuka Bump PLS

    WHOA!, that looks like hard work. I take that corner (bump) as you suggested earlier Dale, ...all the way to the right, and short-shift. Works for me ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. Great job Mobcat, and I really like your abovementioned suggestions regarding the AI ๐Ÿ‘ Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž

    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    I don't mind Monaco; ...it's no-where near as one of my favourites, but I race 100% Race Distance so strategy is so very important. I love the strategy behind F1-2019 almost as much as racing (driving) it.

    New View, New Challenges, and New Enthusiasm

    OCTOBER UPDATE! I'm now halfway through my 3rd Career Season (100% Races), and the No Assists, and Cockpit View is quite "normal" (comfortable) for me now. I recently went back and tried the TV Pod View once again, and WHOA! โ€ฆ.that's WAY TOO HIGH (a view) for me now. It's actually ridiculously high; ...like I'm on a short step ladder! I quickly reverted back to Cockpit View. I can't imagine how, or why, I drove TV Pod view for 10+ years ๐Ÿ˜ฑ You want (more) realism?, Cockpit View is where it's at ๐Ÿ‘ PS: 3-months ago I started (struggled) with No Assists & Cockpit View at 60%; ...now after 3-months I'm (comfortable) at 75%, and I'm still improving ๐Ÿ‘ 5 lights, ...4, ...3, ...2, ...1, .....and, ...WE'RE RACING! ๐Ÿ‘ PSS: For those E-SPORTS "Professionals". In my opinion the F1 sponsored and endorsed F1 E-SPORTS competition should be mandatory 100% distance races, and mandatory Cockpit View, which is as close to real-life as possible. Just sayin'...

    Safety Car is so hard to bring out ...

    I play Career Mode at 100% Everything (Practice, Qualifying & Race). After 2.5 Seasons in Career Mode, ...or 54 Races, ...or 16,200km of Race Laps, ...I finally got a Safety Car ๐Ÿ‘ (YIPPEE!) The AI were obviously not used to experiencing the Safety Car either, ...as they all pitted just a couple of laps after the Safety Car period ended ๐Ÿคฃ Disappointingly though, ...I'm now half-way through my 3rd Career Season, at 100% Race Distance, and I've yet to see the Safety Car deployed again โ˜น๏ธ I don't want to continuously see the Safety Car; ...I just want some attempt at realism with it.... EG: Two (2) 100% Races (2 x Seasons) at Monaco, Baku and Singas, and not one Safety Car at any of those circuits. I'm still addicted to this game though ๐Ÿ˜

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    ...one thing I HAVE to say, is to @Striker_703. Despite all that has been said here. ...I have no right to offer a Character Assassination to you here on this forum. Sorry mate; this should never happen. I still don't like your condescending posts, or the lack of grammar, but those are not for me to get upset about, and to respond inappropriately. Apologies.

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    Okay, THAT'S IT!. I can't stand it any longer.... Sincere apologies to all, but I'm at my wits end with this. I'm not one to "BIG NOTE", but one chap here does it ALL the time, ...and he continues to be condescending to others here, and now it's getting ridiculous. I hate to say it, ..but I have two (2) Degrees, from two (2) different Universities, and a person of your stature with one (1) Degree should at least be able to spell. The logic behind my (this) post will be revealed in bold below. A Degree Qualified person will definitely know the difference between there, they're and their. Or two, to, and too. And what is it with your Footer Brag Biography? Your favourite consul racer.... WHAT? ...Your favourite "distinguished member of government" racer???? Did you mean to say console, as in XBOX or PlayStation??? And if you really love Touring Car games (as per your Footer Bio) you'll know that there is no such thing as TOCO Touring Cars. *** is that? Did you mean TOCA Touring Cars? These simple grammatical oversights, and your posts, have lost me. You now hold absolutely no credibility with me. I really appreciate all of the time & effort that you've devoted to your testing. However, it seems flawed in someway, because in career mode the AI kicks-arse in the Wet, plain & simple. Or, after 20+ years as a console F1 racer, I truly am a pathetically slow F1 Gamer in the wet.

    F1 2019 review

    Unfortunately, I'm old enough to remember when racing an F1 game on PlayStation (the developer shall remain nameless), that in 100% Career Mode the AI never pitted ๐Ÿ˜ฑ But back then we never had a Forum where we could *****, moan, groan, or complain about it. We just hoped ๐Ÿคž that it got it got fixed when the next game out 12-months later. Despite some of the real-life drawbacks of the current Code-Masters F1 game, I'm still enjoying the **** out of it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ
