  1. I agree. I've never found myself focused on tyre temperatures in the F1 game. There were some past iterations that caused overheating problems but it was manageable through the setup. I've always felt that in this game you can manage your tyres entirely through the setup and then your driving will have little to no impact on tyre wear and temperatures. It's probably 90/95% setup and 10/5% driving. The only situations in which I had to seriously manage the tyres and adjust my driving were in dry-wet/wet-dry races. If the pressures are too low you will struggle with slicks on a wet track. I
  2. I was scared the AI would have been overaggressive, in particular in correlation with the new damage model in which even a small touch from behind could destroy your race. I'm more than happy right now. No problems with 1 on 1 battles. There's still a lot a of work to do when multiple cars are fighting and in first laps. They seem to be only aware of the car in front and the car behind. It leads to those weird moments where there are no overtaking opportunities, cars are following each other and an AI decides it's time to dive bomb 5 cars and hit 3 of them...
  3. This. It should always be the case and I don't know if TT is the best environment to test race setups. I play 100% distance, for example, and my setups are aimed to be decent with half tank and medium compound. It gives me enough flexibility in terms of strategy. A setup that is good only with empty tank and fresh soft tyres is basically useless unless you're focused on TT.
  4. I would not use the AI as a comparison. The AI is just faster this year. Numbers aren't what they used to be. And in a couple of tracks they get unmatchable grip and downforce. I have more confidence in the car this year and I'm nowhere near where I used to be against the AI. I don't know if the learning curve will bring us where we used to be. I'm speaking in general, as I said the AI clearly has some flaws and unmatchable sectors here and there. Last year after a week I was back on pace if not faster. I was in the beta too so I had time to adjust to this year's handling.
  5. I'm actually surprised that someone is finding this year's car understeery. They are more netural if not oversteery this year. If you go out with a setup close to neutral the car can snap in high speeds corners. They lack downforce obviously but understeer and oversteer are independent concepts. You can have a car that can't generate downforce but it's oversteery and vice-versa. New default setups are clearly an indication. The new average for wings is basically 8. Front wing + rear wing / 2 is around 7/8/9/10 this year. My experience so far has been: -Less overal
  6. Mazepin Jokes aside, HANDLING
  7. I think the OP was referring to something that could help without being too intrusive (like the racing line, even if set to "only corners). It would help people and also a lot of content creators who are casual F1 gamers. The racing line takes away the immersion and it can be disturbing. I've never used assists but I was more than happy to use the cones in GT Sports cause I had no interest in spending time to learn fictional and reverse tracks cause I thought that they didn't give me any driving knowledge or real life racing/F1 knowledge.
  8. I forgot to mention that preset 1 and preset 5 are Monaco and Monza specific. It's easy to see looking at how tyre pressures are set in those presets. The presets I'm loving the most so far is preset 3. It's the one I enjoy driving with but it's slow and far from being competitive.
  9. Same question. I don't know if you were in the beta but David said that preset 3 is for casual players and preset 2 and 4 are a good starting point. But the problem is that I'm not finding them good enough. I've tried different concepts but there's nothing I like so far. Preset 4 is probably the best but it becomes undrivable in specific tracks. It's an instant spin at Eau Rouge or if you survive it's underbody damage on simuation/simulation (I've tried every possibile line). I had to bring ride height up to 6-9 and 7-10 to avoid damage and the whole setups was messed up at that point. Underbo
  10. I would also say that on consoles it is probably the second/third game in terms of realism: Assetto Corsa first (ACC/AC1), Dirt Rally (1/2.0) second and F1 or PC2 third. Dirt Rally belongs to a different genre so... Personally I'd take F1 over PC2 any day of the week. F1 is simcade but in terms of realism on consoles is up there. Context and standards change a lot between PC and consoles...
  11. Personally I don't understand why the equation is always simulation=hard and arcade=easy/more enjoyable. A simulation can be for everyone with the right level of assists and options (semplified physics, aids and adapted steering for pad players). ACC is a far superior game than GT Sport (which is just bad). The quality of the handling model plays a huge role and GTS is sub par in every way (and it has nothing to do with the simulation/arcade nature of a game). Arcade is also a product like Project Cars 3, that went too far taking away pit stops, tyre wear and fuel consumption (s
  12. I thought it was me or my TV/PS5 combination. I've calibrated my HDR perfectly and text (especially white text and letters) is definitely way too bright.
  13. On PS5 it started as a 20+ gb of download then it gave me the error "can't install". I write it here so it can help. If you get the same error (which has nothing to do with the game) for whatever reason, you don't need to reinstall/download the game, just cancel and delete the download and go to check for update. At that point it should give you the correct 80 mb download...

    I agree. But I wasn't sure about it because from what I know Moto GP is going to release two separate versions...

    I'm very excited about the announcement. I didn't expect to see a combined PS4/PS5 version. It's great to be able to get both versions for those who will upgrade to PS5 and those like me who didn't sell their PS4 moving to PS5...
