    Tyre life in qualifying programme

    I think 3 laps is fine as you have attempts if you make a mistake. If you know you are not gonna make the lap back off save tyres, turn down fuel and ERS, and try again the next lap, and repeat if needed on the 3rd lap. If it’s touch and go and you are going full whack all lap, then you won’t get the 3rd lap. The thing that annoys me is that the hotlap mode runs out before the end of the lap on most tracks if you don’t fiddle with ERS around the lap. If hotlap mode is meant to be the best delivery of power across a whole lap, then it should last a whole lap.

    Bring back retired newish F1 tracks?

    I forgot about Valencia. Yes I would welcome that return too. And the ‘classic’ tracks they included the first time they did classic cars back in 2013, Imola, Jerez, Brands Hatch and Estoril. Or more variations to current tracks. Most road circuits on the calendar all have 2 or 3 different versions, it would be cool if these were included as well, surely wouldn’t take too much work as the base is already in the game.
  3. I don’t have any issues. Sorry.
  4. I can get starts that are pretty good using med TC but you can get better ones without TC at all. Another question? Do you do the formation lap? If you skip this without going to the end and warming up your tyres, you will start on fully cold tyres. Just watched a vid from tiametmarduk and he was questioning why his stats were so poor - this was the reason.

    India was a nasty circuit. Could never get a decent lap together. And Hockenheim and Hungaroring have just produced 2 of the best grand prixs in recent years, so wouldn’t have called them borefest tracks. I miss South Korea, and Turkey.

    F1 career mode constructor standings is useless

    I couldn’t agree more. I would much prefer having to start in a lower tiered team, and my general reputation would decide which teams might offer me a contract. The higher the rep, the more teams are interested in you Oh wait, like F1 2010. You would really feel like you had EARNT you place at Ferrari, and not just swap and change whenever you feel like it after 4 races

    Safety Car in this Lap - Bug

    Wait so you are saying the the safety car disappears when it crosses the line and then the leader becomes the safety car effectively? Pretty sure in real life, it’s announced the safety car is in that lap, at the start of that lap, not half way round.

    Race start

    This. If you are playing with TC You will be miles slower off the line. I’m starting to play with no TC from using medium for years, and providing I can hit the optimal revs I match the AI most times, and if my reactions to the lights are quick enough, I have gained a couple of places off the line. You just have to hit that rev sweet spot and hold it until the lights go out and you release that clutch...

    Highlights

    Yeah the theatre definitely has a section for ‘saved highlights’ so you can do somewhere.

    Why F1 2019 career sucks

    Is it really that bad??? I know so many people have complained about this but I havnt noticed any difference? Or maybe I’m just blind to it? It all seems to play the same to me.

    It's time for telemetry

    This!! I’ve said a lot in recent posts that it feels games are going backwards. I think F1’97 on the PS1 had telemetry. More inter team help would be cool too. Being able to see what set up they use (if they are not using just defaul) as well would help for sure. As would having a set up engineer to help you. Eg you come in and can say from pre defined options that either ’ ‘struggle to get the power down on corner exit’ ‘unbalanced under cornering’ or things like this and they can recommend set up changes. Think MotoGP has this, or protect cars. I think I have a little more than a base understanding but nowhere near enough to properly fine tune set ups.

    Career Mode - Lack of Racing Incidents

    Indeed. It’s just such a shame that it feels as though things have gone backwards since then. I mentioned on another post that even a game I had for the SNES had red flags!! Where are they now?

    Career Mode - Lack of Racing Incidents

    EXACTLY!!!! And even consoles nowadays would be more powerful than the best PCs from back then! I just can’t fathom how a game that is 20+ years old, still has so many better qualities that the current F1 games. The modern ones do have their advantages as I seem to remember the GP’s very limited in terms of actual game modes it was single race or championship and that was it!

    Career Mode - Lack of Racing Incidents

    The best AI I ever raced with was GP3/4 like 20 years ago!! They made mistakes, crashed into each other and so many DIFFERENT failures!! How are we now going backwards? Someone should give Geoff Crammond a call...

    Why F1 2019 career sucks

    Only problem is, you don’t get to experience managing your engines and gear boxes across the season and this kinda ruins things as it’s such a major part of F1. If they included this then yes it would he great taking charge of an actual driver.
