    Fuel saving "trick". And another AI complaint

    I honestly don't see the problem here. You did a run where you averaged low fuel consumption by running lean which the game took to be your expected fuel usage per lap. Come race, it took this expected fuel usage per lap value and multiplied it by the number of laps the race is to give you the recommended starting fuel load. However when you then started running standard or rich, you were suddenly consuming much more fuel than the expected value from your R&D programme, causing you to lose fuel/negative in the fuel delta/whatever you want to call it. The best way to run this R&D programme is to run it how you would in the race i.e. no DRS and standard fuel mix and ERS. Using DRS lowers your fuel consumption average per lap, and running higher fuel mixture and lower ERS will increase expected fuel consumption per lap.

    I don't think its a trick. The game assumes that you now burn an absolute ton of fuel in a lap so you end up starting the race much more heavy and slower as a consequence.
  3. Hey, for some reason when playing the game I occasionally get double downshifted or double upshifted when changing gears. I've tried iRacing and Assetto Corsa Competizione a lot and have not had this problem with those games, only with F1 2019 which is the only reason I'm not certain whether its a game issue or my wheel issue. This happens in all game modes, so its not related to a wearing out gearbox either. I've also tried both DX12 and DX11 to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem?

    AI driver performance really needs an update

    Frustrating you can't edit some of this stuff like you could on earlier games. Codemasters attempts at stopping modding make no sense when you can still edit all the car liveries and remove sponsors.

    Ai Track Awareness (Qualifying)

    Yeah the only 'solution' is to try and figure out when all the AI tend to all come out the pits and workaround avoiding them. Is extremely annoying, especially as there's no consequence like in real life.

    2019 lap times v previous years

    The tracks aren't laser scanned so its impossible to tell whether the times are because of the tracks being not accurate or whether the cars are just too slow.

    Ai Track Awareness (Qualifying)

    This has been a problem since F1 2010 so I wouldn't bet on it ever being fixed.
  8. In real life drivers can see the mirrors in their periphal vision. If anything we are at a disadvantage compared to them when it comes to visibility behind when using cockpit camera and a virtual mirror would help rectify this.

    Always good to see a passionate team principal.

    No, I'm pretty sure he meant big beautiful women.

    I guess he's decided he prefers other female shapes after the failure of the Nicole relationship.

    Raikkonen pitted later for options then he could have done IIRC.

    The WEC race yesterday was amazing. Significantly better than F1.
