can’t race

Recommended Posts

I could qualify in Sotji, but when I start the first race, I can choose my setup, track loads to 99% and the the game exits to iOS start screen.

Same problem in Monaco.

Anyone else who experienced this?

Codemasters new tactic to make you use credits, just before race finishes loading it crashes, then when you load again it says “retry” obviously for credits and not a freebie as you used up your free try 🤔

I have the same issue, see my topic in technical assistance forum. It’s the same with events and single race with grid start and sprint start. I missed Singapore race because of that and I can’t race in Sochi.

Yes I have the same problem. Bad enough they are taking credits for retries, but to not be able to complete a race Is very disappointing. 
i even updated to the new iOS 13.1.1 with no affect!

Same for me and it’s also not the first time it crasches when you want to race...

Tried three times now even closed all other apps and restarted the iPad.

Please fix and compensate us, I was really happy with the qual.

They address the issue in topic 

iOS - "The game crashes when loading a Race Session or playing in Single mode."

and state that

The root cause of these crashes seems to be a lack of memory (RAM) in the device used to play F1® Mobile Racing.

which I think is difficult to understand, as my iPhone 8 has 256 GB, of which 218 GB are unused...

RAM, not memory space on phone. 
But I don’t think that’s the reason. Convenient excuse. 
TS, maybe delete and do a fresh install of the game. 
More troublesome will be to reset your iPhone to factory and do a clean restore.

That explanation is bs. Suddenly 3 iPhones that I and my wife have don’t have enough RAM? Previously the game crashed sometimes after playing for a long time so that may have been the reason, but in this case it happens all the time, after turning the game on after a break, after fresh install or after rebooting the device.

I do find that if I have several apps running in background game crashes more regularly, double press home button and close all apps then open F1 mobile and see if that helps.

How would you see, how much RAM your phone has, and which programs are currently occupying it?

You can’t on an iPhone. Just have to close all other apps before launching F1 mobile. 
but like mentioned in one of the replies above, the game will occasionally shut down after playing for an extended period. 
To me, it’s poor coding. How can a mobile game have such high demands on RAM? Not all phones have 2-3gb RAM which they imply could be inadequate.
