Why are we starting so early?  We cant even get through a practice session without something ridiculous happening.  For me, in the last one I got a drive through for nothing, then a drive through for serving my drive through, then a DSQ for serving the drive through that I got for serving the drive through...plus I can't get off the line...I thought everyone else had issues too no? I guess I should ask how we are starting?

Virtually all of the issues we have seen have had to do with SC or VSC. We are disabling it until it is fixed. The test races run without SC ran very smoothly with no issues, so we are starting the regular season using those settings. :)

1) How was your experience with the 3 pre season races ?
First two were not what i was hoping for. Third race was amazing excluding SC glitches. I showed some real pace and consistency there.


2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations ?
Hoping for a top 6 or 7 as im not very confident on this track. Especially without SC or VSC, it will be EXTREMELY boring. It will pretty much come down to who qualifies well and doesnt crash.


3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017 ?
I love the core of the game (graphics, handling etc.), i just wish the online wasnt so buggy

1) How was your experience with the 3 pre season races ? Ok but i'm not at the pace I want to be yet but Still I managed to finish in top 6 in two races out of 3 !
2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations ?Argh hard to say , I'm not good here so I just hope to finish this one and may be  in the points if I'm lucky
3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017 ? Feels like 2015 .... Single player is great but Online needs a few major fixes ...

1) How was your experience with the 3 pre season races ?
The first race at Monza went really well with a 2nd place but I had troubles at Spa and Cota with 2 DNF.

2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations ?
I like this track, i know i can be very competitive on dry conditions but if it's wet, it will be very different.. rain is my weakness..

3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017 ?
Every year I like the new F1 game that's come out.. everything seems better like graphics and we play with the cars in the actual real F1 championship.. but as usual online issues is the main problem.

To be honest it could of been better.  I had a couple mistakes and then 3rd race was a complete sham so lets see how it goes for the real season!


2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations ?
I hope to run well but tbh I do not care for this track that much.  I think its just that TT is frustrating here and it is so easy to corner cut, but the race itself should be more interesting.  Only 2 really good places to overtake so patience will be key here and its a new game so will strategy.

3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017 ?
I am enjoying the game better than any previous one.  It is too bad that the Safety Car is completely broken but maybe at some point we can enable it.

1) How was your experience with the 3 pre season races?
It was great to see that I have the pace to be in the top 5 as long as I don't take myself out. Spa was a great race for me.

2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations?
I plan on being in the top 10 overall at the end of the season, if not the top 5. Australia is one of my worst tracks, so I hope to make it to the end.


3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017?
I love the handling and feel of the cars. They suit my driving style really well. I like the career mode and everything else. I think it is an improvement on F1 2016, which I thought was really good. But, like everyone else, I wish that Codemasters put more effort into making the multiplayer more reliable before they release the game.

It went alright I guess. I finished 2 races out of 3, hence I am not too disappointed. I just need to work on my consistency for the whole 28-30 laps!

2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations ?

Finish first, lower than that would be an absolute disgrace...

3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017 ?

I didn't play an F1 game since "F1 Championship Edition" on PS3, so yeah.....I can't compare that much with previous game. I agree that multiplayer is a bit glitchy at the moment with SC and yellow flags. Still I am enjoying the look and the handling model, its a fun game!

1) How was your experience with the 3 pre-season races?
I did way better than expected in Monza. In Spa, I spun out in the rain and crashed during Quali and I spun out at the top of Eau Rouge on the first lap. Not my best showing on a track that I usually dont do well on. I would have finished top 3 in Texas but I got over excited on the 2nd last corner and spun out into a wall and lost my tire. It wouldnt have been a fair podium finish considering the glitched safety car. If all things went smoothly, i think I would have been in the top 5.

2) We begin Season 12 with Australia. What's your expectations?
Last season I did well in my debut race in Australia, Im hoping to finish just as well as last year but a lot of people have practiced this track for hours that I will definitely need to be on my game for this race.

3) What's your thoughts so far about F1 2017?

Like everyone else, I love it. Cars are great and the graphics are definitely better than 2016. A well optimized game for my computer. Need to fix that safety car and Ill give this game an A+, as long as Codemasters doesnt ruin the game with new bugs.

My upshift paddle is broken, I'm going to do a few laps tonight and see how it goes mapped to something else but I may have to miss the race, will update tomorrow.

Going to do my best to shift with the drs button, will be interesting.
Does anyone else find it extremely difficult to race during 'official' time?  I feel like half the corners are totally blind and or completely dark. Do we race during official?
