    F1® 2020 First Look | My Team

    So if power unit upgrades are being made by Merc we know this be passed down to customer teams. However why do we have access in MyTeam and also career of a customer? Will our upgrades go back up to? E.g McLaren power unit upgrade goes to Renault and visa vesa?
  2. I’m not surprised. The difference between the two in terms of game play isn’t that much. I never got 2019 so I’m playing 2018 now before 2020.

    Mechanical failure

    That was also spoken about by the infamous Steve Hood. His decision were very strange at times.

  5. tarrantino

    Which Engine?

    Yes of course budget is key, I know everyone would love the Merc engine.

    Mechanical failure

    Yes I agree too. You just want to have that in depth career or my team mode you need that. I get the odd one when you start a session but you lose 5 minutes or 2 minutes it’s just not the same

    F1® 2020 | Driver Ratings Announced Part One

    Strolls Dad brought him 10 points
  8. I don’t play multiplayer. I don’t have the ability to lock in specific time or day to play. So my perspective is offline
  9. Wet-dry and AI Pit strategy. Yeah that’s two but linked some what. The drying time is too quick and you cannot make a strategy when it rains. It’s very rigid when you pit for wets and back to drys. You cannot make a gamble for a couple of laps and gain a lot of time.

    Cool down lap added to game

    Have it as an option but o don’t think it’ll bring much to the game really. You’d then have to program pit entry and parc femme at the end.
  11. What engine would you use For Audi? Keep it German with Merc.

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    Oh my you have a lot to learn haha. Yes there is a beta and usually 300 per platform and it’s invite only. It doesn’t really polish the game though

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    How many will have short memories of the previous games? I’m holding out until the first proper reviews and bugs come out. Year on year now we’ve had announcement, hype and then the beta. The Youtubers get a copy and will always talk good of it. Then it comes out and same bugs surface.
  14. Keep dreaming everyone. This series is stuck in the same old loop. Release in the summer, patch hard but same bugs keep occurring. Support will end soon. Then about April it’ll begin to hype again with talk of the next version. Yes great ideas but Codies are stuck with what they can fox and implement. They’re fixing the same things each year with patches. It’s not implementing new things. They do not have the time or resources to produce a well polished game.

    F1 2019 - Microtransactions...

    True. Never thought of it like that

    F1 2019 - Microtransactions...

    Obvious this was going to happy. They asked about micro transactions in their end of season survey a couple of years ago. The game looks the same as 2018, the F2 is just three races. Codies have lost quite a few customers.

    My experience

    So I just wanted to note down my experience of F1 2014. Specifically career mode. I'm on Xbox 360 and driving with a pad. I've done two races at 100%. Only assist I use is the racing line on corners only.  Specifically I just wanted to note my race in Malaysia. I'm driving a McLaren and since I haven't played since 2011 I wasn't sure on difficulty and so gone with professional. I will change as you will see why soon.  So I done practise. Started off wet and then it dried. I set the car up and then scrapped it for the dry. Qualy and the race were dry. I qualified third pretty much on the edge nothing more I could do with that. Hamilton was first and Rosberg second.  Race starts and I take Rosberg off the line but have to settle behind Hamilton. I then manage on lap two to take him at T4 and push off into the lead. Hamilton is so slow Rosberg takes him and is second some 10 second back.  That it stays through the first stint and I switch to lean to save fuel. As we all pit, me and Rosberg take options and Hamilton primes. At this point Hamilton is 30 second back. Slowly through the second stint Rosberg pulls the gap back and takes me in the next stop. We then battle for 10 laps interchanging positions between first and second before finally I come out on top. After using the second DRS to get back past Rosberg who took me on the first DRS. With me now first, Rosberg has to save fuel. He drifts to 5 seconds behind. As Hamilton then stops for options for the final stint he is pushing like crazy. That 30 second gap is reduced lap by lap until 2 laps to go. At that point Rosberg is taken by Hamilton. He then comes after me but I manage to hold out and win by 6 tenths. I had to manage the fuel mix too in all this. Lean at the beginning and switching to standard for a long time. I tried rich as Rosberg was overtaking me but I had too much wheel spin and lost time. It cost me tyre grip as Rosberg caught and overtook me. Finally I was able to use rich in the last two laps without major wheel spin to keep Hamilton at bay.  It was a race you had to always think. AI was intelligent to go with different strategies. It worked for Hamilton. I think I had a bit more life in my tyres in the first stint. The second I was struggling after pushing to keep in front of Rosberg   All in all a really good experience.

    Which is the best F1 game so far?

    Formula One on the PS1 was an exceptional game. It was on the 95 season mind not 94 but it was fantastic.

    Announcing F1 2015

    Reminds me of Ashes 2013. However at least F1 will be more of a complete game!

    FOM control so much it took years before F1 was even broadcast in HD! Football had it for years before Bernie thought it was worth it.

    I have decided, that I hate DRS.

    Half a second just wouldn't cut it I don't think. The cars wouldn't get close enough. You see now sometimes it takes a couple of DRS zones to get close to an overtake.

    I have decided, that I hate DRS.

    DRS is always going to cause a divide. Doesn't it sound though that without DRS it's hard to follow cars directly and not get close? I think without DRS you will see cars a bit like a repelling magnet. Get so far but unable to get close. This is because of the air coming off the first car. As Brundle has said in comms there is a lot of work done via the front wing to work the air.  We have seen pre Pirelli and a DRS that overtaking was at a mimimum not completely gone but significantly reduced.  Comparing overtaking to to even the 90's is a bit pointless as the cars are different then and now.  Currently DRS provides an overtaking solution but it's the car design that's causing the problem.

    Announcing F1 2015

    End of the day every title has been hyped and not met a lot of people's expectations. Until people have physically played it theirselves we can't be judging anything. 
  25. What will be different though is the Canada pit buildings. They are being rebuilt for this season.
