  1. No telemetry - that is 95% of F1.

    Something New

    Also from this article: Tan [F1's head of esports and digital business] said the emergence of “hardcore simulation” titles is “an incredibly important narrative” within esports. “I do think that simulation will become increasingly important. When we think about the longer-term strategic objectives of Formula 1 esports and how we operate within this space, I think that there are many, many levers."
  3. Very happy to see the mirror - so you can better race in cockpit mode. This is a significant improvement.

    Why we need telemetry!

    Codemasters sim or Arcade?

    This series of videos that Codemasters did are the best they they have done. It provided a sense that they at least know how to pursue an improved driving model. Would like to see more of these as we get ready for the 2020 release.

    Agree with you on most of the description of the "atmosphere" of F1. The "eye candy" part of the software is very good and fun. But on the idea that it simulates what it is like to be a driver in an F1 team - I would beg to differ. An F1 driver and an F1 team spend 95% of their time analyzing telemetry data and that ability is not in the game. It is hard to simulate the F1 experience when 95% of it isn't there. Which gets me to the car development part of the game. Typically car development is based on understanding the car's capabilities and what you want to improve by understanding how the car has handled given the variety of driver inputs to the car (telemetry). You can't do that as the game is currently structured.

    If you are trying to create an F1 driving experience it is hard to argue with actual F1 drivers. But looking at the opportunity for Codemasters, they are getting input from people who have the actual experience...

    Another variation of this theme: Arcade - the car compensates for the weaknesses of the driver Simulation - the driver compensates for the weaknesses of the car

    F1 2020 Wishlist Features

    What about an improved driving model, car setup, and telemetry - to better represent the F1 driver experience...

    I don't think ACC, unlike AC, has any open-wheeled cars...

    I remember only one last year (didn't see the others) and it was basically a marketing survey - and nothing that asked about what you might want to see in improving realism in terms of F1 driving. You can't find out what people want if you don't ask them about it.

    Where are those?

    Good idea...
  14. I think he missed setting a time in qualifying for some reason and so started 20th...

    That is probably also a question for F1 management as well - why do they want their official game to be not realistic? Will that really appeal to fans? Will that really help people understand and engage in the sport better?
