    every race at 100% you mad ❤️❤️❤️❤️, I do occasionally do it towards the end of the season. Brazil and so forth if the title is really in the balance
  • what's your moral ground on using the flashback thingy... tbh last year I was playing %50 at some races and I didn't even know this flashback thing existed so having to restart after a crash in 28th lap or whatever hurt baaad.

    When you race at Baku and the two Mercedes drivers collide at the narrow turn 8, Stroll gets DQed and Alonso finished 3rd......

    They really need to update the pen system .
    Completely bottled the Q so I started dead last. So I fitted a completely new engine. Only to start from P8

    50%, no flashbacks, only use a restart at the first corner every so often when the AI does something weird.

    @Ash, there's a glitch with the McLaren engine upgrades. The majority of them don't even work.

    I'm not even kidding.

    I'm only in Sochi at the moment so I'll switch to Renault, think I'd prefer that anyway.

    Does explain why you were barely catching up to Toro Rosso.

    I'm pretty far now,may consider my offers at the end but I have noticed improvements, from.what I understand is the issue is that 100% engine done will probably only see me 4th worse car in terms of engine

    About The car standings, do they also taking in account the durability and reliability? Because Im with Haas and they are rapid, but the durability is shocking and they are ranked as third worst car iirc

    I think so as durability doesn't have a standing

    How many races does it take until your engine performs like s*** and you have to switch to a new one

    Yeah I'm in a Haas and I had to retire at Sochi because the engine wasn't working (TC at around 78% and the rest around 70ish%) and I kept losing gears with 60% wear.

    soon as it goes yellow I switch, you're better off using yellow parts for practice sessions then going with fresher parts for qualy/race

    Im Haas too. You really need to up the durability of the gearbox. I had no fresh gearbox left for Brasil and had to start the last two races with a broken gearbox

    Yeah I just started a couple of days ago and I was already losing gears at Sochi. Had to get a new one for Spain.

    And yes @Apollo it is worth it to get the game this year.
