  1. I think one thing that would be a great addition to the new game would be the ability to rename your online lobby, so players had an easier time to pick and choose which one to join and also what to expect.
  2. We all know the drivers who have won a world championship, but what about the ones who haven’t? For me it has to be Felipe Massa. I shed multiple tears for him in 2008 and my heart broke for him. What driver would you pick and why?

    AI difficulty

    I would go up in increments of 5+ when it comes to setting/testing the difficulty. For me it’s 105 AI. I go to my best track and test it there in a 50% race until the first round of Pit Stops and Full Qualifying. If I find I’m too fast for them then I raise it a little higher each time.

    Is Time Trial Redundant?

    From now on I think I’m going to do my own setups and also spend my time practicing against 110% AI. Weirdly I actually agree with every single comment on here, which never happens. I’ve had my question actually answered which is also nice. So thank you to everybody who’s left a comment thus far.

    Is Time Trial Redundant?

    Hey everybody! The main use of Time Trial in my view is for bragging rights on the leaderboards but does it make you a better racer, does it translate to race pace? Personally I’m not so sure, I can see it helping in qualifying the most but during a Grand Prix the car feels so vastly different (including managing tyres, ERS, fuel etc) to where I feel Time Trail practice can be redundant, including the setups. I’m fast in Time Trial I can match some of the best online, but is it more beneficial to spend your time practicing under Grand Prix conditions, leaving Time Trial alone? Because after all the race is where it matters.

    F1 2019 Weekly Event Penalty System Punishes Unfairly

    Like I previously said I agree with everything you’ve said, you are right. Yes, what happened to me was out of my control and yes that’s just how life goes sometimes. However, I’m still going to be frustrated by it if I didn’t do anything wrong and I can’t think of anybody who wouldn’t be.

    F1 2019 Weekly Event Penalty System Punishes Unfairly

    Your comparisons are completely valid and I agree with everything you’ve said but I actually set a lap time, multiple times.. In real life it’d be like having your lap taken away from you for setting it too early in the session for example, even though you did everything right. A big difference from you messing it up or a red flag etc. Codemasters won’t be able to do anything, yet I think they could of implemented this better like giving you one try every 24 hours or each time you retry it the qualifying session time gets cut down, idk. I just don’t agree with being punished for things that are out of your own control. That’s all.
  9. Hello, today I attempted the weekly event at Austria, after going purple in all of the practice programmes I moved onto qualifying and that’s where the problem begins. I consider myself reasonably good at this game being in the top 50 or top 10 at almost all tracks in time trial. I set a banker lap time of 1:05:080 at Austria and I was reasonably happy with that for the weekly event, before the end of the session leaving the pits for one last run my game froze, leading me to reset my console and incurring my first penalty, so I gave it another go and midsession my flat had a powercut due to line issues nearby so I lost all progress again, so I gave it one more go and set a 1:05:040 and once my time I had been uploaded to the leaderboards it was over 1:06:000... Can somebody please tell me how a penalty system like this is fair? I understand the system if it’s your own fault but when something is out of your own control the same rules shouldn’t apply. Is there some way to reset my time or? My time trial times at Austria on my account will vouch for me also. Thanks
