    Safety Car due to heavy rain

    Been there a few years now. Been a long time since I’ve had that.

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    The state of some of the comments on here. Don’t bother reading the thread or understanding how this works. Codies will also have to get this signed off by all the teams. Will Ferrari want to look as bad on the game as IRL? It has become clearer but to get it right they want as much data as possible. Guarantee that they’ll be people moaning things haven’t been done right even when it arrives.

    Why the Ferrari's Weichai sponsor still present in the Game?

    I’m surprised CM didn’t ask your opinion alongside the F1 drivers about such items like slipstream for example.

    The Worst Things Jeff Says to You

    To add to that you’re a lap down and in high mode with half a lap left, technically have 1 and a half laps left

    The Worst Things Jeff Says to You

    Yep had that. End of Q3 less than 30 seconds left - This rain will continue for another 10 minutes

    Tyre Strategy

    Hope for a nice safety car too. However starting on the hards will negate that as you’ll only go softer and then Less laps.

    Damage model

    I think you’ll find most actually want a better system. However the teams don’t want to portray their cars as brittle and sponsors are also involved hence why you just crash to the safety cell.

    F1 2021 and beyond compatible consoles...

    All Xbox One games are backwards compatible with Xbox One Series S and X. Think of it as a PC upgrade with but still running Windows 10.

    F1 2021 and beyond compatible consoles...

    The new S is a next gen without a CD drive. There is a slight kerb on the video output I believe but has the same graphics card. Think the SSD is restricted a bit. I saw a really good comparison but can’t find it atm. You will be able to play them on there. It’ll be a bit like the current Xbox One original v the Xbox One X. Both play the same games. One is able to do 4K for example.

    Tire Regulations

    The game keeps one set of each compound locked out. Only if you make it to Q3 you can use the new soft set that was locked out. However you qualified 14th so free tyre choice and access to the unused set from Q3
  11. When you start a new practise session and then jump straight into any of the practise programs you can select tyres as per normal. Once you have completed a practise program or two and go to the tyre selection screen (See below) the ability to change compounds is frozen out. You cannot change between soft, medium or hard or jump between wet and dry. If you right or left bumper then this doesn’t clear it. Only if you left or right trigger does this then clear the problem. Xbox One 1.08 MyTeam Yes seem to happen quite often and possibly every time but because I only mainly do just the practise programs this isn’t noted at each Grand Prix. I did not it when it wet dry to wet and also in Hanoi when I switched tyres getting used to the track By going to a practise program from the start of a session or a mid session save and then going to change tyres manually. By pressing left or right trigger. Gamepad. See below

    Suits Merc perfectly this. The Lewis Nico battle although interesting was very difficult behind the scenes, with Toto having numerous conversations between them. Lewis has the race craft which showed today. Not just all about the car as you need someone who can drive it.

    Weather forecasts

    Yes each track has a percentage of rain chance based on their real life situation. Then as you noted the forecast can and will be different to what goes on the circuit.

    I can’t hide my frustration anymore

    I suppose when you compare to codemasters of old, look at TOCA 2 and Colin McRae, they where surperb titles. Even had to choose to wash your car or not in Colin McRae if you had enough time in service. I don’t go for each title every year As again it goes stale. 2020 has been the best in the series IMO. I know damage has been discussed at length and we don’t know what restrictions were in place back when Formula One on the PS1 was out. Although the physics back then couldn’t handle high damage compare to now.

    F1 2020 handling is good, but not perfect

    They consulted with the likes of Lando and Charles to switch it the other way. Too easy and unrealistic to just grind down the gears to flick around a corner.

    Why do we have another thread?

    F1 2020 new tracks

    Here we got yet again! Let’s wait for the next performance update post or McLaren livery update. 🤦🏻‍♂️
  18. tarrantino

    Where is the performance update?

    Stop being a spoilt child. This has been the best F1 game by Codies to date and they have addressed several issues already. However you clearly want everything instantly.

    AI Damage Setting, Can We Clarify?

    Don’t think I’ve have a picture since 2011! Always run simulation damage.
  20. tarrantino

    Which race lenght are you using?

    100% all the way. Might take me a few days with mid session saves.
  21. tarrantino

    Safety car bugged again!!??????

    I also find the AI pit if they’re near a stop too

    Safety car bugged again!!??????

    Wrong. Just has Lando try to overtake on and lost control under DRS and smacked the wall. Also had Grosjean tap me and spin and then there was a pile up too.

    Quali sim program

    It also states that laps 2 & 3 are DNF as you don’t get the chance to do them now. Which is right but the screen in the garage should just remove that.
  24. You have to remember (many don’t) that it’s the teams that sign all this off before. I would expect a fresh livery update to include McLaren, Mercedes changes and I think helmets too. I believe @BarryBL mentioned this in the bugs forum.

    Weather too imprecise

    Which is how it used to be. Back in older versions I changed my strategy to eliminate a stop and go with the weather as it was fixed. I couldn’t do that in Hanoi as it was different.
