So this isn't about online but in career mode, there is a fuel management program that you can do in practice. Basically you have to let off the gas early and coast into the braking zone. This is messing with my head because everything I learned about racing is the constant need to be on the throttle or brake at any given time. Also when i try to coast, my delta falls behind and I can't keep up with the required time. Any tips on this?

Anybody got the HDR setting (in graphics) working on pc? Is it related to having a "special" kind or monitor or something like that?


For me it is always greyed-out...

Thats a setting for consoles or if you're playing on a special kind of TV. Monitors dont have that setting really. The reality of the game being ported from PC. But hey, this game is one of the better ports out there. It's a solid game if you ask me. Pretty well optimized. I have everything on Ultra+ and i have a EVGA 970, 4770k i7, 8gb RAM. Im keeping a steady 70FPS with minimal stutter. I saw more stutter in 2016.

Understood! I agree that is is very well optimized as well!

I have the same rig as you but with a 980ti, a buttersmooth ultra+ experience at constant 60 fps so far!

The easiest way to save fuel is to have really early short shifts.  You don't lose as much time as coasting.

Ya I figured this out in China and during a heavy rain practice session which made it a lot easier to complete that program. Short shifting is the only way to pass this program, not coasting.

I have not had any problems completing the program with coasting. U just need to coast 50m or so before the braking point after straights. The time they expect you to get is not a qually time but a time that is slower because it knows u will be slower coasting.

That lets you stay in the green tho, well for me at least. Its easier to get into purple by short shifting. Plus I don't want to get coasting as a habit

I have been getting purple for the most part by coasting. I do a little bit of short shifting too and it does help but in my experience with the game so far coasting has done most of the fuel saving for me. Might just be my driving style.

Im noticing that in the Rules Thread, it says formation lap is on. Is that on purpose? Will we actually have that this year season? I know some will say its pointless but I feel like its part of the sport, the calm before the storm.

So track conditions in time trial are better for multiplayer racing than Grand Prix mode? When I was racing in F1 2011 I chose Grand Prix mode.
