Can confirm dx11 doesnt work either.   I know my GPU works well as i just recently benched it (2080 Super)

I have now attempted to (set start options  -high -nod3d9ex) to see what happens. 
i got

Experienced that crash as well and F1 2020 behaves like F1 2019 for me but a bit worse in the sense that it is crashing more often. F1 2018 same story as F1 2019, F1 2017 was running fine - always. At some point something in the engine changed which does not run well on some systems and I feel that nobody figured that one out yet to be perfectly honest. What is absolutely stunning about this issue is that it has a tendency to appear very often in career mode practice and quali sessions but by comparison almost never in races. For 2019 I had race weekends where it crashes every 10 minutes in practice but not once in the 100% race (which btw tells me: it is not the hardware or drivers). 


As much as I would like to give advise I simply can't. I spend quite a while with this issue for 2019. Reinstalled Windows, really tried a ton of different drivers, checked hardware multiple times (despite no issues with other games). So at some point the only constant is the game with all its versions up from 2018 1.0. Also requested a refund for 2020 at steam. I think Codemasters doesn't care. Neither do I at this point. Had to finish a season in 2019 before getting to 2020 but issues remained really the same.
