@Faya Why no official brand new broadcast HUD like the game concepts here in the forum and new cut scenes (don't answer with "we have a new podium scene and track intros")?. Most of the cut scenes are known since F1 2015! And thats a big joke! Where are the broadcast graphics what you have talking about on your preview event in Hamburg? Where are the official starting grid intro and results? Where is the cool new TV-feature "Halo Speedometer" HUD? Sorry but it's time to add all the official graphics to get the feeling: "Yes, I'm playing a new F1 title and not just an update from the previous games". I'm playing F1 since years and we got nothing new in this area. Same boring cut scenes and graphics, just added with the official font but the system behind the HUD is the same boring thing. 

Absolutely true!

To those of you saying VR Support won't be included, well, at this point in time, I'd have to say that's almost certain, for release at least.  However, VR Support is included in DiRT Rally, and it's being added to DiRT Rally 2.0, so it's not like Codemasters are ignoring VR all together.  

 

It's far more difficult to implement VR support for a full 20 car grid than for DIRT. PS4/PSVR can't really handle it. Even Sony's own studio couldn't get it done for GT Sport.

A VR version will almost certainly have to wait for next-gen.

Can you calm down @Ivano2023 I will be playing this on My Xbox One which does not have a VR headset.

Nice! Are there any other features people want, or that Codemasters have included that you don't care about? I'm sure everyone is cool with only including features that you will use, @breezysskells22.

It's clear that this isn't in, but it's sad that Codemasters won't answer the question.

Now that Fanatec has introduced the MPS FNC setting to their latest Wheel/Firmware update for the F1 V2 wheels, i understand that the Multi Function Switches are usable/mappable in ACC and Raceroom... can anyone confirm if they will work in the upcoming F1 Title?

I'm just excited because the game looks amazing.  The only issue I have @Faya is that the USA lists us getting the Legends Edition the same day as the Anniversary Edition.  Both GameStop and Amazon list this that way.  Is this just an error on their sites or am I getting my Legends Edition on the 28th?

I would like to know why many people can play F1 2019 and even make lives on the game since yesterday, yet the game only comes out on the 25/06/2019 Legendary, and normal on 28/06/2019

Same reason they send out early copies to YouTubers every year: because they think it's good publicity, even though some people complain about it every year.

I don't want to turn it off. I want to see that information, just not in a big clunky format designed for people eating TV dinners on the other side of the room.

Well if they were to implement the full positional tower, I'd expect them to add an option for users to select how many drivers are to be shown as a result of this argument in the community.

 

Aside from the size of the tower, this is no more "clunky" and "obstructing" as the current HUD - it shows EXACTLY the same info except the current HUD shows the FULL driver name whereas officially it should be the 3 letter abbreviation which is less "clunky".

 

Note: the radio icon is pointless and is not required.

It would be great if they would implement an option for the time tower. Maybe standard (like it is now), Advanced (like it is now + leader and teammate) and full. Also you should choose if you want to see the full names or the three letter abreviation (otherwise it makes no sense to have them).

I would also like to could set the gap permanent (like in spectator mode), because mostly I'm so concentrated on track that i didn't see it when it's shown. Mostly it is shown in corners where i don't have the time to look up left on my screen. On the straights it would be easy but then it's gone.

I don't have the game yet so I have a couple of questions to anyone who can answer them:

1) Are the new sound effects in the game? Things like the beeps for start lights, sound for fastest lap etc. And if they are not, will they be patched in at a later date?

2) Are there more stats in career mode? All-time leaderboards/top-10 for poles, wins, podiums, fastest laps, championships etc? 

Thanks!

Can we have a patch to fix the game completely, the Williams is ridiculous with the ai in career the Alfa is not done correctly with their stats, the Merc engine needs a nerf they are clearly not the best engine in F1... The torro rosso has a worse engine then red bull even though they have the same power unit. The torro rosso itself is more of a boat then a Williams which should not be correct. The quali sim program is a tad ridiculous on the straights with the delta. There is no option for f2 multiplayer. Are codies ever gonna fix this probably not. They ignored 2018's big issue with lag and it took then so long to bring any patch and even then the updates were minor and didn't help. Honestly what are racing or not fixing the game.

This has been already confirmed from Codemasters. All stats and car performances are based on pre season testing at spain and will be corrected afterwards

Question: Every car looks brilliant I admit that, but the Ferrari and the McLaren look so empty.

 

So, since Codemasters don't have the rights to put tobacco companies on the cars, why don't they put the '90 years' stickers on the Ferrari?

 

I don't which sponsor the McLaren doesn't have but fix the McLaren as well please.

 

P.S They have lots of stuff to fix, but especially the sounds 😁

Not entirely correct. Williams are currently not back of the pile from what I've seen so it still doesn't even match winter testing.

How does car handling differ from 2018 ?

No... it's identic

no, just helmet, would make no sense when this comes to the career mode as drivers need to wear official team gear

I'm sure this could be implemented in future with sponsor overlays depending on your team, would just add another element of customisation as drivers in the same team (Lewis/Valtteri) have different gloves irl.

WHERE IS THE BLOODY CHAMPIONSHIP MODES FOR MULTIPLAYER *** IS THIS. At the very least allow realistic cars in leagues or just add in the championship option back in the game like there was in 2018. @Faya

Just use the League Feature

If you start from Damage 1 then you're basically back to default as the default tyres have the same look as Damage level 1 and so look daft when you come out of the pits on a grand prix weekend on brand new tyres and they already look scrubbed . 

Default Codemasters textures

Real life (my textures) fix

Please add a patch to fix this problem!

Ok, since there are official driver transfers in the game, a question:

 

• For example, Valtteri Bottas moves to Haas, is he going to change his helmet, like his helmet with a new colour, sponsors and new design etc?

 

Are the helmets going to be changed when a driver gets transferred to an other team?

This year F1 is full of ****! ABS and ATC don't work! 
The player in the rain ride unrealistic, but AI in the rain ride on rails, and do not make mistakes! 
The texture of tyres is horrible and untrue! Fines for cutting corners are unreasonable! 
Check the wheels on the Chicane in real life is not punishable by a fine! 
Only after 7 hours I realized what F1 2019 is worth. But no one will return my money now! 
If this happens every year - I will never buy this fake F1 !

No. The helmets will stay the same.

I don't know why there isn't the number 71 in the list of the available number for career. The number 71 could be free because there isn't a driver in Formula 1 that used it. Could someone give me an answer??

I HAVE THE IMPRESSION THAT THIS FORUM SERVES TO PUT US IN ANOTHER USELESS PATCH. WHEN WILL BE FIXED THE GAME? WHEN WILL BE FIXED BRAKING ASSIST? WHEN WILL BE FIXED THE STABILITY OF THE CAR? WHEN THEY FIXED THE TYRE? TRY the FOR YOUR MONEY PASS a WHOLE SEASON of F1 IN THIS F1 **** 2019. YOU HAVE CREATED A NEW GAME, BUT THEY DO NOT PLAY IN IT. YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR US AND NOT FOR THEIR PROFIT!

Can the blue flag algorithm be updated please? I was unable to unlap myself without being penalized in a 100% race. I'm not sure how far ahead of a car you need to be to not get a blue flag but it basically destroyed our race as a few of us were involved in turn 1 crashes and couldn't get back on the lead lap as we weren't allowed to pass cars on the lead lap without a penalty.
