Every single race is a battle of time and dependent on the behaviour of a four year old going to bed for me!

Could you use the RRR title card as well? It's in the wiki somewhere, there are links in the various video threads scattered around.

Are the damage and safety car options separate, or one and the same (as in single player)?

It might be worth switching the safety car off given the recent issues we've had with it, but I think its important damage remains on.

Looking at the rest of the calendar, its unlikely a safety car will crop up again anyway, but there's no denying its buggy as hell and I don't want people to be deterred from racing because of it.

What do we reckon?

I like it on. Gives the slow guys like me a chance to get back in the pack and it changes up the strategy.

I think the SC is fine in general, it's just a pain at Monaco.

I don't agree its just Monaco - we've had incidents of it lagging into people at Melbourne and Spa too.

Its nice to have it in the game, but it really doesn't work well enough online. You don't even get the field bunching up as in real life either, due to some bizarre autobraking.

I don't mind leaving it on, since I doubt we'll see it again, but I don't want to see people like Sam and Alex to leaving the series. Safety car aside, the game is great and we've had some great racing.

I've said it before, but give me 30 minutes with you on track and I'd get you up to a pace where you could compete with folk and have fun, I guarantee it. :geek:

Maybe, but I'm just not that bothered, so I'll be sticking with Forza and a sprinkling of the others.

I don't mind whether it is on or off. I like the variation it gives but if it's buggy there is no point.

Alex and Sam, you should just give the game more time. If you gave F1 half the amount of time you do with Forza you would enjoy it a lot lot more and be more competitive but if you aren't prepared to do that then we can't help you.

I don't know how you fared in the Sprint last night but you did seem to struggle in the rain, though to be honest a lot of us would anyways :D

After being hit by the bug last night i want it out, Took out my team mate at Spa last year if i recall.

There was nothing i could have done to avoid it was suddenly just the noise of a crash and i was out race and all the time i'd practiced ruined.

I have enough problems keeping my connection going to compete in races without having this bug in there too.

I would say turn it off, it causes more problems than it adds to the game it seems.

Of course I did get a podium thanks to it
