  1. 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.

    If you are looking to make the game as true to the sport as possible, how come the safety car has not been updated to the AMG GTR for years?

    A lot of things on the game feel artificial and ruin the gameplay and driving experience. Real F1 cars have more grip than we have on the game and the sudden loss of grip while full throttle doesn't make sense. Also the slipstream effect is too weak (I mentioned this quite a few times before) and we saw it again during the Russian GP.

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

    What about Jeff telling rain is expected in around 10 to 15 minutes while being in the last lap?
    What about Jeff warning you there is fuel for one lap when sitting in the garage?

    Don.t you find it stupid?

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

  4. 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.

    I'd be extremely surprised if F1 2021 wasn't compatible with the new consoles. F1 2020 may well be too actually. 

    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. 

  6. 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.

  7. 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

    • 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.

    • 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    We’ve literally had 6 races? How much data do you need or how much times you need to see to come to the simple conclusion that Ferrari’s engine isn’t the fastest. 

    And I could’ve bet €1000 on it that someone would say that it is ‘because of covid’... 


    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 doesn't crash, so no safety car. Only "mechanical" DNF's which means they always retire safely.

    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.
