We have a potential fix for this issue. However, as these CPUs are not officially supported by the game and haven't been through a full QA cycle, we do not want to place this fix into the main game just yet. Instead, we have set up a beta branch in Steam where you can get this fix and see if it resolves your issue. To do this, please follow these steps:
  1. Open your Steam library
  2. Right-click on the F1 2018 game and select "Properties"
  3. Select the Beta tab on the properties pop up
  4. In the text entry box ‘Enter beta access code to unlock private betas’ enter: c7EFPdFd6XADgGL7X284D4m8N6gYZmvb then click CHECK CODE.
  5. A message “Access code correct, private beta ‘phenomtest’ is now available will appear
  6. Ensure that in the drop-down menu on the Betas tab that "phenomtest" is selected (not the default NONE option) and then Close the window.
  7. The game will now update. 
  8. Launch F1 2018. This game version should now display as v1.04.1 at the Press Start Screen.
Please let us know if this resolves your immediate issues. If so, we'll roll this fix into the main game once our full QA cycle has been completed. 

Customers who do not have the affected CPUs should not get this branch as there might be unintended side effects from this change.

Customers who do not have the affected CPUs and who are experiencing problems launching the game should add a new support thread with the required information: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/132514/f1-games-technical-assistance-bug-reports-please-read-before-posting. This should include a summary of your core system specs and graphics driver information.

Ohh YES it works! (Using Phenom II X6 1100T) If I start a new carrer in this beta version mode, will the game save it, if I switch to the main version again? And am I able to play online with friends?
We have provisionally tested save transfer and playing online against players using the official 1.04 version of the game and we believe this works ok. Let us know if you have any issues with this.
