    Very enjoyable season 1. I watched all your races. I look forward to seeing your season 2. I have subscribed to your channel.

    parc ferme rules

    Yes, that is correct. All that you are able to change in Parc Ferme is the front wing angle and nothing else. This is exactly how the game is too. No penalties are incurred for this.

    Strange error in qualifying detected

    Yeah, you could have a good point. I think I'll just chalk it down to this or a 1 place grid penalty. However my suspicions are still with it being an error/bug.

    Strange error in qualifying detected

    you are aware that qualifying is split into 3 parts that's why it says Q1` Q2 Q3  going by this it means Hamilton was only fastest in Part 1 not in Part 3 Yes, of course I know that. Rosberg was fastest in Q1 and Q2, but that screenshot was when I clicked on Q3, it shown SB (session best) was Hamilton, yet Rosberg was on pole. That is the Q3 result, as Bianchi and myself (Chilton) were not in Q3, that's why we had no times listed there.
  5. Have a look at this screenshot I took in GP mode of F1 2014. It shows Q3 session best time as Lewis Hamilton, however the qualifying standings on the right show Rosberg on the pole. Is it possible to get a 1 place grid penalty from qualifying penalties in this game? I thought the only grid penalties from qualifying were 10 places in this game. http://i62.tinypic.com/2n7fjab.jpg

    F1 2014 throw me to the desktop

    Have you gone into Steam and tried to verify the cache of the game? If not I'd suggest you do. It sounds to me like a corrupted file or two.

    Completing Installation...1% Problem

    Happens to me sometimes as well. Shut down Steam and then shut down and restart your computer and then try loading the game again. That works for me. If that doesn't fix your problem try a re-install of the game or wait for Codemasters to respond.

    Nice videos! I can tell you are also using an AI mod, which has made the Williams faster, the Mercedes just about unbeatable, the Ferrari's slower and the Toro Rossos slightly better too.

    Safety car deploy high probability only monaco?

    Yes, 3X Damage Mod is the most realistic. I just had 5 DNF's at Suzuka so things are working properly. The increased damage definitely increases replayability, as this prohibits you from going crazy fast on the 1st lap. This is very evident in driving for the slow to mid-tier teams such as the Toro Rosso. Now if I can just get the safety car to work more, I'd be all set. Well, I'm 12 races into the season on GP mode driving as Kobayashi in the Caterham. 3X damage both AI and player. 12 races for 21 DNFs (excluding my own DNF at Monaco LOL :p ). Still too little AI DNFs for me, so I've changed some of the files to make the AI cars have slightly more engine and mechanical failures now to up the numbers just a little bit more. And only 3 safety cars in 12 races, but I'll live with that. I totally agree with you about the first lap replayability, and it's why I really enjoy playing with the damage mod on my car.

    What I would like to see in F1 2015 and beyond.

    Along the lines of no.29 in the original post, an ability to request a change of your front wing angle when you make a pit-stop, just like Hamilton did in the Grand Prix of the USA yesterday.
  11. This is also an issue on the pc version of the game.

    It rains only for me.

    There is a way you can make that happend, on PC. Download debugging options mod, where you can change weather etc in the middle of the race. But also the thing I use it for, if there is to wet then you can bring out the safety car and even make it red flag.. Yes, I already have. Check out my post on racedepartment ;)

    It rains only for me.

    In reality, there should be a safety car deploy in those conditions where it is too dangerous to drive in even the wet tyres, so the field should be bunched up together behind the pace car until the weather and track improves enough to race safely again. I'm not talking about racing conditions that are for intermediate tyres, but for when the conditions are too bad for wet tyres and the spray in front of you is so bad you can't see the car ahead of you properly. If codies implemented this, extreme wet weather racing would all be done behind the pace car until the track and weather improved, and no time would be lost to the AI.

    Safety car deploy high probability only monaco?

    No, I mean the Nurburgring LOL. I'm still playing F1 2013, as I didn't want to be held hostage again by purchasing 2014 on release day and then having to agonize for CM to decide whether they will deliver a patch or not. This time, I adjusted the damage mod to 4X(both player and AI) to make sure things are working properly. And then I just completed the 50% Nurburgring race and had 6 AI retirements. There were various broken parts strewn across the track throughout the whole race and I had to do 2 extra pitstops for breaking off my entire front wing on both occasions, as I don't do race restarts and flashbacks. Interestingly, there were many AI cars driving at various speeds throughout the race due to their own damages. One time, I ran over a bollard on the track due to one of the AI breaking it off and my whole front wing was taken off. Amazingly, still no SC deployment. However, I think 6 DNF's is too much and my next race at Hungary will be dialed back to 3X. Predictions? Yes, I always maintained that X4 was overdoing just a bit and X3 is the best damage settings and most realistic to play with. I'd rather have 1-5 DNFs per race, anything more is starting to border on the ridiculous. Predictions? maybe 2 DNFs but no safety car. I've only seen one safety car deploy in Hungary for an AI mistake playing this game series and that was in F1 2012 when the track was becoming slippery due to rain and Schumacher hit some other AI car up ahead of me and spun and retired in the middle of the tight sector 2 bends.
