F1 2019 - What is a Featured Event ?

Recommended Posts

Title says it all, what are the Featured Events ? I assume such events didn´t start yet, so far the only event available is a Weekly Grand Prix, I hope it´s not related with an exclusive e-sports´ stuff. Is it a limited time event ? How often can we expect to find such events ? Is it multiplayer or single player ? What kind of event is this, is it a race ? A time trial ? Something different ?

 

Thanks in advance !

The german version of the achievement „Featured Racer“ says „Schließe ein Haupt-Event ab“ which means „complete a main event“

Interesting, sounds like this event would not pass by unnoticed. Still very mysterious and it seems nobody knows anything about it.

It's not exclusive. You can also take part. It's tied to this: https://f1esports.com/

Yeah, I don´t think this it linked with those races. It gotta be something else that we haven´t seen yet.

Still 0.00% have unlocked this on Xbox so I assume it's something that gets added later on

Same on PS4, nobody unlocked yet. I do notice on my superlicense stats it shows up as some kind of a weekly event too, weird thing is I got stats for participating in "Featured event" but nothing on "Grand Prix event" - As far as I know we only had Grand Prix events as of today, including the current one in Hungary; this error on the stats is probably another thing that needs investigation, and of course, everybody wants to know what are the Featured Events.

 

Can someone please take a look at this ? @Faya u there ? Could you please pass this info forward to codies´ F1 team ?

 

Thanks in advance !

Hello @eduardohrks, I'll be able to help you understand the events. The 'Weekly Events-Grand Prix have yet to start. The 'Featured Events' are the main events that follow the race schedule and the 'Sub-Event' that was at Monaco. The eSport from what I've noticed from pass events they follow the race schedule as well. It would be a given that it would start with the latest race.

Hi, thanks for the reply mate. While browsing the forum I actually did found a revealing post about these events, it seems they in fact didn´t start yet, link here:  https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/40364-f1-2019-level-50-trophyachievement-glitched-sg/#comment-449461

So, to answer my own question, it´s a race ! Awesome idea from Codemasters to bring this type of event variation ! It seems to be inspired by real life events, this week you have to succeed winning in Bahrain with Leclerc´s Ferrari, that really rings a bell... This game mode made me remember an older F1 game called "F1 World Grand Prix" from Nintendo 64, launched in 1998 it portraided the 1997 F1 season, to this day I had never seen any other game do it something similar, it had a game mode inspired in real life sitiations that happened in the 1997 season, it was called Scenario mode if I recall correctly. In these fun "scenarios" you had to complete a hard task in adverse conditions based on stuff the real F1 drivers actually did at the time, for example, in one Scenario you were Damon Hill driving for Arrows and had to hunt for grip to hold back Villeneuve with his powerfull Willians at the track of Hungaroring, this was a difficult task based on one of the most memorable races of that season.

Anyway just wished to share my appreciation when I found what the featured event was, the idea to bring back a game mode relatable with real life events is very nice indeed, thanks ! I thought I would never see something similar again in F1 games.
