What non-calendar tracks, if any, would you ideally want as additional DLC/Free Content in F1 2022.  I know that people would want to tick them all and say "The more tracks, the better!" but I say choose around 5 of your preferred options. I've tried to include variety but I think some will be more popular than others.

Maybe i should have read this post before making my vote of half the tracks you put up🤔😂

I did think to just allow everyone to vote for any they'd like to see, but I thought if 20 people voted and like 10 circuits had 20 votes then that'd not particularly clarify matters 😂

I could restrict it so only one track is allowed to be chosen but could you narrow it down to just one?  I definitely couldn't!

I don't mind if people do tick all the ones they like as i'd only want about 10 of them anyway and have no real interest in the others.

I’ve clicked brands hatch as it’s my favourite track ever..  but brands can’t host an actual f1 race anymore as pits don’t meet requirements (cough Monaco cough) So shouldn’t really be an option.. but spot on with the rest.. nice selection. And no I didn’t click on all.  About half

I think you are completely right with restricting it to 5 so when Codies take a look at it they know whats really most wanted, i just failed to read

Yeah 1 track is definitely not doable!

Yeah same either 10 or 11 tracks for me but if i had to really choose only 5, which is too late now lol, id say i need more lol no but if i really had to decide, Sepang, Istanbul Park, Magny Cours as sure top 3 and the rest is too close, really like India, Indianapolis has nostalgic value and the long banked corner is just amazing to slowly creep closer but Nürburgring is a classic and Mugello another track that is just amazing to get right, same as Portimao.. Really cant decide there but i guess Nürburgring, Mugello and Portimao in for the last 2 spots lol

What he said

With hindsight, I should probably have put it into the topic header but it's not a mandate as going over isn't the end of the world!   I still think there'll be a general gist anyway of which ones will get the most popularity and then it can be better organised if a further poll is needed.

This was just to dip a toe in the water and see how the idea would resonate of which ones, if any, people would like to see. I just didn't want 20 tracks all having 20 votes!

I went with a technicality as extension of belief. For example, in F2, they don't actually park in the pits but they do in the game.

I presumed, since it's not based on a real track, they could shoehorn the teams into respectively-located garages and make do. 😋

Maybe you should be more specific about Valencia, there's Valencia street circuit & there's Valencia Ricardo Tormo Circuit.

 

Imo the easiest 5 tracks to include would be the ones in recent F1 games: Shanghai, Portimao, Hanoi, Hockenheim, and Sepang.

In addition to those imo Istanbul, Nurburgring, and Mugello would be great to include as well. The other ones you listed are good too then there's a number of other good tracks that aren't on the list (Watkins Glen, Sebring, Jacarepagua, Donington Park, Jerez, Zolder, etc).

Not sure the cars would get through the corkscrew with front wings intact otherwise it be a big yes from me

F1 cars have made it through there intact before, at least a Ferrari driven by Marc Gene, so i guess its possible but its not the best track for current F1 cars but if next gen cars are much slower that could change

Laguna Seca is nice, it would be great to have it in the F1 game. The last Indycar race there was really exciting, one of the reasons for that imo is the lack of runoff asphalt areas, you go beyond the white line it's either gravel or sand, but if it were to be used in a real life F1 race they'd probably have to asphalt several runoff areas and ruin the track.

I admit I do like tilke circuits... although he could stick some elevation changes in them.  And sand traps.  

I basically dont like Tilke circuits but i also love some of them (Sepang, Istanbul, India) and in the end a **** ton of tracks got touched by Tilke by now, Hockenheim, Red Bull Ring and Fuji reworks were also led by him.. I thought Silverstone too but seems not

I love it lol

Just saw an old tweet by Tilke and it was really disgusting.. He suggested Bahrain to make Turn 1 into a Copse corner.. Would kill the overtaking spot completely😭 luckily that is 3 years old and likely not to happen

When you look at tilke tracks the generally all follow the same layout.  Fast bit a medium bit and a couple off hard braking zones at end off a straight.  Silverstone doesn’t follow those rules although whoever did design it probably took some ideas from him

Yeah thats why i dont like most, just feels heartless on most just like Abu Dhabi, South Korea, Sochi, Jeddah, Hanoi.. I guess he does too many street circuits lately lol

Some years ago.... over ten.., I was at Silverstone watching f1 testing....Back when engine noise was so loud you couldn’t hear yourself shouting.   I sat in the stand on the straight before copse... watching the cars take that corner was something to behold.

Its an amazing corner but not a real overtaking spot.. sharp turns at 280 kph are just not made for humans to go wheel to wheel as we saw this year.. 30 years ago that would have ensured Hamiltons title..

Tilke is an interesting character. He's basically monopolised the F1 circuit business so he, and his company, get basically all the contracts.  There are positives and negatives but most people know what they are after seeing about 5 of his tracks as they're generally similar cookie-cuts of each other.  He does have some decent tracks, and then some which are meh.

I think he's possibly hampered these days by the insistence on more street tracks, more middle-eastern locations and more street tracks in middle eastern locations.  Myself, I've never been a fan of a street track but I can admit a few do produce decent racing but rarely on the level of a fit-for-purpose track.   Also when he creates an idea for a track, I assume he bases the possibilities and capabilities around what cars, and technology, are like at that point.  When he was doing tracks in the 90's and early 00's, I don't imagine he was anticipating the hard-to-follow monsters that we have at the moment so sometimes the tracks can be a damp squib in different eras. 

That being said, he's done wonders for safety and facilities. Although, sometimes perhaps too much for safety as there's less jeopardy in the excessive run-off areas but none of us want fireballs and death so it's not the biggest compromise to have run-offs everywhere.

 

Regarding the poll; I imagine the first flurry is over now and it'll be the occasional odd person here and there who votes but (at the moment it is 38 voters) which is more than enough to see a pattern. 

  • The newer, or more recently appearing, tracks are definitely more popular. 
  • Despite only appearing twice, and i'm not sure with fans either time, Portimao is very popular and joint for the lead with Turkey (which isn't a surprise). Its inclusion this year in the game probably has established it as a favourite for alot of people. 
  • Hockenheim is one vote more popular than Nurburgring but both are quite high so there's still alot of appetite for a German track. I'd definitely like Germany back on the calendar.
  • China only has 14 votes and I thought it'd be more popular than that. If anything, this poll certifies it probably won't be on next years game as a gift. I think it'll be on the real calendar again in a few years anyway though.
  • There were some tracks that started really well and then faded. Sepang being the most evident but I was surprised how well Mugello did, and has done, as it is currently joint fourth. 
  • Kyalami faded quite quickly and is now as popular as Estoril, and less so than Buddh (which I quite liked). 

 

Current top 6 -

1. Istanbul Park - Turkey - 31 Votes

1. Portimao - Algarve/Portugal - 31 Votes

3. Hockenheim - Germany - 23 Votes

4. Mugello - Italy - 22 votes

4. Nurburgring - Germany - 22 votes

6. Sepang - Malaysia - 21 votes

 

China is down in 7th with 14 votes and that gulf between 6th and 7th, I think, shows that if Codemasters wanted to include new tracks then they'd be the six worth including.  Obviously they can't all come in the same year so it'll have to be spread out over 2/3 years. 

Miami and a few track amendments for next year mean i'd be happy if they did Portimao (which is mostly there anyway) and two other tracks.

Then the following year is just Russia currently (Igora Drive). Maybe people will want Sochi to stay?  😂  Otherwise, the other three would be worth looking at.

I think its because its generally less popular.. Older people mostly know the old layout and mostly only Assetto Corsa players or motorsport nerds know the new layout.. Of course its just a speculation but the playerbase is probably not the oldest haha

I voted for the tracks that have been used in real life in 2020 and 2021 (see list below). Would be great then in F12022 you could start a career mode in 2020 and do the correct season (with 2 x Austria, 2 x Silverstone etc) with all the correct tracks, drivers and teams from that season (eg Renault, Racing Point), then progress to 2021 and do the same before going to 2022 with the new cars and full 23 race season. They could then build on this every year and you can choose which season to start from if you wanted.

 

Turkey

Portimao

Bahrain Outer

Nurburgring

Mugello

Qatar

One off half a century now so it did alot better than I expected it to!

I think the pattern is pretty evident of the six that people would want (Portimao, Turkey, Sepang, Mugello and the two German tracks).  The two Germany tracks have been an exciting race of each other getting a one-point lead before being pegged back and now they're completely level.  I was curious to which one would be peoples favourite German circuit (i'm preferable to a Hockenheim myself) but both level-pegging hasn't cleared it up to which one people like more!
