The only way a player can have a technical or mechanical failure is if the part reaches 100% wear.

It's been a request for quite a while to have random stuff happen to the player as well as the AI, so you're not alone. 🙂

I personally retire from a session when I have a drs failure to simulate a mechanical failure. It happens once or twice a season which is usually around how often the AI retire

yeah i know, but seeing AI dnf at shanghai makes me wonder how can the ai have 100% wear after 2 races?

i mean, mechanical faiures are a huge part of the sport.

Agreed.  I think we should have things happen to us.  Unfortunately, many people would complain because "it's a game and why would a racing game prevent me from racing?" so it's a bit of a weird one for Codemasters.

How about an option to turn on Random Failures for the player?

I strongly believe that with "as well as the AI" he meant "in the same way it happens to the AI".

Yes, that's exactly what I think would be a good addition to the game. It would be just like turning damage on or off.

Really good idea. Thanks for inspiration.

it doesn't have to be "prevent from racing" we should be able to switch it on or off, like car damage options.

It's a shame this doesn't happen. 

Project Cars has an option in the menu for a level of damage that can put you out of the race, and their damage model is very good / frustrating / makes you want to cry in a corner. 

Sony's last bash at an F1 game many moons ago had this, remember having my gearbox being stuck in 4th or something like that with 8 laps to go leading in Turkey (remember that??!?!) and it was incredibly tense, a lot of fun. Also had engine failures for the player as well. 

All in all, similar to what someone was saying earlier that they retire after a DRS failure and consider that a mechanical failure, I tend to knack up at 2 of the street courses so I count those as my DNF's for the year to level up with the AI lol.
