    Setting up a private mini league

    Very. Just set it to private and there you go. Only people who are invited can join.

    I had an engine failure!

    It's decent but it really should be possible for parts like the ICU to fail fully before high wear. You can get random engine failures in F1 when they're new. We used to get them in Sony's F1 games but Codemasters have had an aversion to this for a long time. Steve Hood, a guy who was creative director (or a position like that) in the first few Codemasters F1 games, said something like they didn't want to alienate people with a random element like that which could be a turn off for people. I recognise some names on here who seem familiar from way back then so they might remember it too. Dunno what the people in charge of that stuff at CM think of the issue these days but going by recent games, they don't think much differently. A big engine failure when you're leading by ten seconds is gutting, but that's part of the enjoyment and fun. Wish we'd get that back again.

    Podium Pass 1 Day to Go

    For it to actually happen this week and not be delayed will be a start. Well we'll obviously get all three of those. Whether there's many decent ones is another matter yet to be seen. Really hope there's some good liveries and there's at least a few that aren't completely ridiculous and cartoony. Same for the helmets and a few good celebrations.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    Thanks Codemasters. There had better be less garish and extravagant designs in season 2.
  5. The team members celebrating are there on 2020. Don't know if they were removed very early on but they're definitely there for me.

    Marbles off-line was a nice feature that should come back

    They're certainly still there visually. Maybe the effect is still there but it's a lot less. Now you mentioned how different the tyres are then it does make sense if the effect isn't as drastic.
  7. Around F1 2011ish, when you went off the racing line, your grip really went away dramatically later in the race as you hit the marbles of rubber discarded from the tyre surface and the controller vibrated a lot in response. Think 2011 was the only game it was in. Really liked that. People remember it? Good example of something that should have stayed part of the series for me, but was forgotten about.

    PHOTO MODE - Share your pics!

    Photo mode could be a bit more user friendly. Being able to zoom in with one of the sticks for example ike Forza and GT do (I think they both do anyway, Forza does) instead of having to go to the menus each time. Bit of a pain.

    Item shop is a huge disappointment

    Yeah not sure. Would be good if they were clear on it but then that's how they get people.

    Item shop is a huge disappointment

    There's a brilliant helmet as the weekly item this week. Unsure whether to save for the next pit pass next week (which I assume will be 9000 coins) or get it and then save for the pass with the coin unlocks. Think you miss out on VIP items if they come before the level at which you get VIP though?

    I can’t hide my frustration anymore

    Outstanding post, @Blent. Love seeing well composed replies like that.

    MyTeam...long time motivation and future improvements

    How can they have Calderon in the game and not have a "she" and "her" prefix for when she's being addressed. That's a little surprising.

    Then they really should add what GT Sport has or Pro Evo. This games can and do work with modded stuff on PS4. Forza does it on Xbox too. Though Pro Evo on Xbox doesn't allow the importing of files. Microsoft thing I guess.
  14. You do make a good point. Suppose they've gone for a bit of a Helmut Marko approach.

    F1 Games

    Out of Codemasters' ones, 2010. The top 3 press conference stuff was amazing. And then it was never seen again. Would rather this be in it than the dull and pointless questions you get asked in the pitlane. You felt you'd earned you spot sat in that press conference. In general, Grand Prix 3. First Geoff Crammond game I played.
