[PS4][Front wing damage] - Going through Eau Rouge causes minor front wing damage (4/4)

Recommended Posts

1.       A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. 

When going through Eau Rouge flat out at a certain bit of the track you receive minor front left wing damage. I believe it is only cosmetic and does not affect performance. I first discovered this playing My Team Career in a practice session and was able to replicate this a further 3 times in Grand Prix mode. In My Team I was using simulation damage. But I was also able to replicate this on Grand Prix Mode with Full and Reduced damage. When doing a second lap the first time the cosmetic damage gets slightly worst (added video below). I've completed all practice sessions in My Team and have done in total approximately 30 laps. The damage does not get any worst than visual effects and there is no sign of damage on the MFD. I'm using the default car setup.

My assist settings are:

Braking Assist - High

Anti-Lock Brakes, Pit Assist/Release, DRS - On

ERS + Fuel Assist - Off

Traction Control - Medium

Dynamic Racing Line - Full/2D

Gearbox - Automatic


2.       Platform


3.       What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 


4.       Game-mode? 

My Team and Grand Prix 

5.       What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. 


Go into Grand Prix mode and choose an F1 2020 car. Have damage on Simulation, Full or reduced. Enter practice (or any other session). Aim to go flat out through Eau Rouge trying to stick to the racing line. You should notice minor damage on the front left wing. If you do a second lap the cosmetic damage gets slightly worst.

6.       What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue 

Slowing down or taking a slightly different line can help mitigate this but I found that to be tricky without losing a lot of time. I've also tried using flashbacks and restarting the session, both of which do not always work. 

7.       What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) 

Gamepad - Sony Dualshock 4 V2

8.       Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears.   


0:00 - My Team - 1st lap (Simulation Damage)

0:22 - My Team - 2nd lap (Simulation Damage)

0:40 - Grand Prix Mode (Full Damage)

0:54 - Grand Prix Mode (Reduced Damage)

Strange. Have you tried altering it, to see if anything changes?
