Just got back into my career mode the other week actually. I had chosen Sauber and had a couple of races left from when I last played. Signed with Renault for my second season and I've had a 5th place and a 7th place with them so far.

I may up the difficulty as I have no real problem beating Hulkenberg but I'll probably give it a few more races. The F1 season coming back made me catch the bug.

Cool. I'm only at Russia in my 1st season. I suggest do try the Event where You would be in Stroll's car & have to atleast finish 2nd.

Didn't realise there was a new event tbh! Got 268th (Xbox). A full 20 seconds off the top guys and with AI at 100 while they have it set to 110, these events are always a humbling experience :lol:

I was having a 25% race in Russia in career mode. Around 2/3rds of the race, there's a safety car. Since I was in the Sauber suffering from ICE issue, I had lost some power & was able to catch up to the queue. The SC sign was constantly visible on the screen. If I late braked the car ahead of me & if I got close to being ahead of the car, the instruction would pop up where I should hand over the position back to the driver. The frustrating thing is that the 2 or 3 cars behind me overtook me with the SC sign still visible. How come they were allowed to overtake me with the SC on the grid whereas I got warning to give the position back?

Is this a bug in the game?

Not 100% on topic, but does anyone have experience dealing with Fanatec's repair services? My ClubSport V2 base suffered a catastrophic failure today (smoke pouring from the back and everything!) and I'm wondering if I have a chance at having it repaired instead of just buying a new one. It's well outside warranty.

Now I need to go get some fresh air - this electrical smoke is making me lightheaded! x(

Picked the game up second hand for PS4 a few months back, I might have tried to play it three times since. I just find the handling on controller too poor. I'm generally quite competitive on racing games and sims, so this has frustrated me. I often find it to be a little bit too sensitive, but I checked the controller settings the other night and there doesn't seem any way to turn it down. Any ideas?

I don't use a controller, so not directly...

You could try looking at the channels of some of the really quick F1 2017 league racers who use a controller (older stuff from Limitless, maybe TRL_Martin, some others) and try to see what they do.

Just got it and as a controller user it's a little different. Much easier in the wet which is a little disappointing but a little harder in the dry.

In 2016 I used to brake then come off both them and the throttle and carry whatever speed I was still carrying through the corner but in '17 the big rear tyres don't like it apparently and I just slide all over the place. I can take Pouhon faster in 2016 than I can in 2017 even with the bigger tyres and more d/f so I've got some work to do to tweak my cornering style.

But it's great though and the classic cars are amazing. Just need some classic tracks now.
