Checking the race calendar, my bet is someone changed the flag but forgot to update the associated text. At least in the German version.

I don't think it's there by mistake. It says you can't race on the track because it's not in the game, and if the replacement for the cancelled Australia gp will also be a track that's not in the game, then that's exactly how it will be with Turkey.

Whatever could be added will be welcome - now that Turkey will replace Singapore- and Austria replaced Kanada it will be again a broken season and have no hope that the full calendar will be implemented in the official game …..

The FIA don't know the official calendar at this stage* - if they don't I'm don't expect Codemasters/EA will be be able to do anything about it. 

*Mexico and Brazil expected to be cancelled - possible double header in Austin and/or Bahrain outer ring to replace them.

I do not know why turkey is not in the game, because turkey was a track in the past and in the series of codemasters F1 Games. The most tracks are using the same assets like on the beginning of CM´s F1 series, they put only more details to the track. Look at spa they use the same assets since years.

Why they can´t use now the tracks of PCars and import the tracks for Portimao and Imola. Slightly Mad is Codemasters. PCars 2 tracks are much more like the originals. Portimao was in Grid2, the same for istambul and it looks good.

They must not produce new tracks in total. Only the Yeddah track. It would be better they concentrate more on the old tracks and not yeddah and give us more quality for the old tracks. No game has the yeddah track in a final version and the track is not final. They should use the time to create yeddah for the F1 2022 game to garanty more quality.

I'd happily pay £3.99 to race on turkey again 🤣

to be honest, I'm a little disappointed. You don't get any information about the new routes, they said they'll come later for that, I understand. What I don't understand is that the game is more like an expensive update. why do I say this so hard? we were deprived of content. there are no more classic cars AND the short tracks no longer exist. Bahrain, Japan, USA and what else was there are no longer there. We just have to say that this is the real scandal. We only have 20 tracks in the game and nothing more. I'm really disappointed about that.

For me the races are challenging of breaking point, but the story is a bit childish and full of clichees ala hollywood. It is easy listening. Sometimes the charakters acting more like in a cheesy soap. The cutscenes looking very good. It would be nice that with a new engine this were the in game graphic for cutscenes . All the drivers looking very good. The story is a linear story. You can nothing change in the story mode. You must drive with a default setup. It will entertain you for a while. It is more like a DLC. The story is scripted. You has no big influence to change something in the story. It is strict linear.

Turkey is also back on the calendar indeed, and they SHOULD have the basic design for it already since it was in previous iterations of F1. Would love to go turn 8 there, but it should not be as slippery as last year 😛

It is Turkey then. They included it as it is the supplement for Singapore. But only the flag and text, there is no track in the game.

Yepp. Türkei is how you write it in German.

Agreeing with you KillingJoke197. You can only tune in before or after this event. It is just there to represent the calender. Has anybody began driving in Austria twice?

The real-life standings can be added to the game without having a full circuit to play on. That way if you wanted to start the season after that race the championship table would be accurate.

 

To the best of my knowledge, Turkey/Istanbul Park is not coming to F1 2021; if you got to that point in the calendar from a previous race it will be skipped.

Classic cars were little used and short circuits were not used.

Are these big losses, no.

Short circuits were not used also because they were GP only.

Imagine using shorter versions in MyTeam last year, that would have been cool, especially that we didn't have Bahrain Outer.

Classic cars... yes I agree. At this point, only few people care about random classic cars. Instead, a lot of people would prefere an entire classic season to play, like 2003 Mod for 2020

The only purpose the short circuits had were the challenges for the classic cars.

Whether the tracks were used or not does not matter at first. It's more about the fact that the 3 tracks are missing and that game content has also been removed. But in the end you pay the same or a little more than in 2020 and you can't compensate for that with braking point.

everyone uses the tracks differently, one more the other less, but I think the tracks would have been worth gold NOW to fill the racing calendar at least a little. especially with regard to online leagues.

You've played one Tilke track, you've played them all 🙄   You could probably mash up a few of the other tracks' corners and you could make a track similar to Turkey. It's a shame about Turkey but not unexpected so can't really complain too much.

Hopefully the calendar is more stable next year so there'll be less of the track confusion.   In the meantime, we'll have to wait patientlyish for the other 3 tracks. I suspect this thread will get a lot of views in the meantime!

more tracks more tracks more tracks!!!

The community is begging for more tracks for years now, and what is CM doing they cut them. what a strategy.

in the past we had classic cars but with newest current track layouts, made no sense to play. (this mode is gone now anyway)

since CM has the F1 rights, they had these track from 2010-2020:

- Malaysian GP

- Turkey GP

- Europe GP (Valencia) 

- German GP (Nürburgring, Hockenheim)

- Korean GP

- Indian GP

Im ok that they disappear from the "official" calendar, but an option to activate them back for any Mode would be awesome. 

Now we have an official game and official calendar, which is not complete and never will be. 

Also some different layouts from tracks would be awesome, like Bahrain 2010, Bahrain short, Bahrain 2020 oval, to name a few.

Every year the same discussion, without success. 

It is what it is, definitely the last game for me to pay the full price game.

Thats not true.
I mean, codemastres cut tracks because they're not part of f1 anymore (Sepang, Valencia) 
 

And it's not like we're not getting any new tracks at all.
In F1 20 we got 2 brand new tracks (Zandvoort and Hanoi) and this year there are also 2 brand new tracks (Portimao and Jeddah) plus Imola returns to the series, which was last raced in 2013.

I think you can expect 2-3 new tracks every year, if the calendar is changed so far.

Miami coming in next year. Russia changing their track in 2 years or so. Other tracks potentially changing on whims too like Brazil were going to Rio (but I think that's been canned) and Silverstone is always under threat and I think 2024 is their current end-date.

They'll always be under pressure to do some track work every year so I don't see them prepare to shoehorn random tracks into the calendar every year as that'll give them less reaction time to match the real world calendar if things change (as they seem to every other month atm) and if they do bring other tracks in and they aren't accurate to the millimetre then people will complain. 

3 seems to be their maximum track changes a year (and that's if the tracks have pre-existing data like Portimao and Imola had) so if the calendar quietens down where there aren't any changes, that's when i'd expect other tracks to be brought in.

The expected timeline for the release is not yet publicly known.

It is clear on all release information and the EULA that the fulfilment will occur during the game’s lifecycle, that they are not available at release and will be ‘free’ once they are available.

I don't really like "free" stuff

I prefer FREE stuff

Or the best is just simple free stuff
