I.A drivers do not attempt a quick second lap in the qualifier.

Recommended Posts

Even though several people here reporting the problem, it seems that they didn't care.  It is very clear that we have a problem.  They probably won't fix this simple problem, which was even fixed in F1 2018. Codemasters has not been able to release a performance update until today. 👎🏼

hi all.i seen a strange thing happening at qualify that didnt see at last years game,i do 100% qualify and race with everything off, i like realism,so this year doing qualify i saw that  at the first qualify session the car (the first 15) do only 1 lap,only the last 5 get out to do the second lap,like the first 15 know already that they will qualify for the second session and thats really stupid NOT REALISTIC,it happens in the second session too, only in the third session the cars go out twice like the real ones do..

 is it the game or maybe a mod that i have that screwed something up...if its the game that does it ,than its sucks really bad and hope they do something with it

Thats started happening with me I've noticed recently. I play on 50% race with full qualifying. I play on ps4 so not modded. Loads of drivers only seem to do 1 fast lap so those going out a second time are posting faster times so driver like Kimi in Alfa are getting q3 on a more regular basis and Sainz is going out alot more in q3. Seems to skew the qualifying results a little bit i think.

Exactly, last year it was OK. In F1 2018 there was this problem, but they fixed it

Just to add a couple of screen, here (last 2 minutes in Q1) it looks only the last 5 drivers (going to be eliminated) and the "driver at risk" do a last qualifying attempt...

One more test and once again only the last 6 drivers (5 currently out and 1 at risk) try their 2nd attempt in the last minute of Q1.

It is always like this, always the last 6 or 7 drivers try a second try in Q1.  It seems that the rest are already sure they will qualify for Q2.  I hope that @BarryBL can update us on the fix soon.

Just tested a Q2 as well, there they started the last 8 drivers (from 8th to 15th), so 3 "at risk", but I guess sometimes it may not be enough too. 
All in all even the Mercedes usually make their 2nd run in the real (in each session), so I think everybody should do it both in Q1 and in Q2.

Exactly, everyone needs to take a second try, just like in real life, and just like it was in F1 2019.

Any news about the fix? @BarryBL

Just be patient. it's only a month and a half after they replicated a very immersion breaking bug. 

This game has a 12-month lifespan so it's absolutely no biggy they take months to fix these issues. 
Besides, you already paid. what do they gain by fixing the game for plebs that already gave them their money? 

It's a sad affair that F1 doesn't realize the potential of a good, working f1 game. And instead let's codies half-arse their way to some easy cash grabs.

Just to add, playing training yesterday in the Netherlands, Q1 went from wet to dry, and I saw Hamilton, Leclerc, Verstappen and Sainz being eliminated in Q1, Bottas was in 15th.  As all the other drivers tried a second lap, as the time improved during the session, and those mentioned were in the Box and were eliminated in Q1.  For you to see how bad this Bug is, and I hope it has a solution soon.
