It has nothing to do with it. The transfers happen during one of the negotiation periods, so  look for it to happen either before Austria, Belgium or Japan.

For me there is no point in wasting my money on this game. How did this get through QA? Why was this implemented mid-season and not end of season?

Drivers and teams have contracts. F1 drivers, so far as I'm aware sign deals for year(s), not every 4 races! Unless that is, a signed driver has an accident or injury which means he can't drive. The reserve driver then steps in or a free agent may be employed on a temporary contract. I remember Ferrari did this many years ago, perhaps when Shumacher broke his leg at Silverstone, or the Massa injury at Hungary. I forget the drivers name but he was a Ferrari test driver and turned out to be shockingly bad.

If a driver is under contract to a team that's it and of story for the duration, unless a clause is activated, or terminated by mutual consent. I understand Riccardo signed to Renault with a clause he could go to Mercedes or Ferrari if a seat became free. RBR and Torro Rosso are unique on the grid and swaps between the two should be possible.

Contract negotiations every four races is a joke, maybe a performance review and perks changed. Contract lengths and clauses/perks need a serious overhaul in the game. Offers given as in previous games perhaps rather than the free reign given now.

I was excited for this until I experienced it myself.. Joined Renault with Ric as my team mate, very first contract renewal he moves to Haas! Gutting! I literally moved there to be his team mate 😂 Though it was a smart move performance wise as for some reason the Haas and Racing Point are contenders with Red Bull.. Performance is odd, switches are harsh when you join a team because of a driver, low team department morale or lack of Q&A on it even for performing well is very annoying!

 

Make it so if you are 1st driver for a team and doing well you have an influence on who the team head hunt..

On second thought, leave the silly mid season transfers in but just for RBR and Torro Rosso 😛

Well look what has just been announced Albon to Red Bull And Gasley has been demoted back to Toro Rosso

 

Personally i think that is a stupid transfer but there we go

Gasly - Albon swap isn’t a stupid transfer, if that happened in the game with Gasly underperforming so much I wouldn’t bat an eyelid. Stupid transfers are when the driver leading the championship with 5 races to go leaves the team and joins a different one.

I wasn't on about in game transfers

 

IMO in real life i think it is a bit of a silly transfer 

 

But the in game transfers doesn't bother me say Vettel went to RB or Haas or what ever, i wouldnt let it get to me because maybe next season they would be back at the front.

 

They thing that does bother me is when a driver moves team they still keep the same helmet

I hate these driver transfers. I hope they get removed somehow or we can switch them off. THEY SUCK.
