The season will be over as we will test and focus on F1 2017. We will make weekly race on Wednesday with F1 2017 to test some features.

It's a shame to cut the season short, but F1 2017 should be a lot of fun!

Im hoping to choose a different team in 2017. Will the selection order be based on this seasons final standings?

Also, I don't know much about this franchise but what made 2013 the best F1 game and 2015 the worst? I want to get 2017 but I'm worried it will be a bust like 2015 and have less interest than 2016. Project Cars had people losing interest, including me (mainly because of sync issues and would get bumped on straights), heck I even donated to choose a track and I didn't even participate in that season because of it. I hope 2017 is a step forward, how good of a company is Codemasters? Last games made by them that I really enjoyed was GRID and DiRT3 but I think whose had different developers.

Codemasters is probably the worst company I've ever seen in my life... The problem with Codemasters F1 is that's a port out from console. So XB1 and PS4 are their priorities. Also, assists are always super unbalance, which mean the drivers with assist could be faster than a non-assist driver. Another point, online is P2P, so if someone has a bad connection, it could affect everyone. Codemasters focus more on single player and console. Why assists are that unbalanced? Because a lot of kid play that game with a gamepad in their console, so they must make it easy to drive so they game win either with Alonso or Vettel :p

Why F1 2013 was the best game so far? Because online was more stable and it was more an arcade game. Since 2015, they changed the physic and try to make that game more a simulator, but they are miles away from iRacing, Assetto Corsa and Project Cars.

Personally, the only good point of this game is about the strategy in race and the fact you are racing all official F1 track. Year after year we are testing their new games and it's always bug, after bug... it never ends hahaha. This is why I've switched to iRacing ;). Did I miss F1? Yes, because I loved to race with the group we had before and used to like the racing. But since 2014, I've lost all interest because of all bug and because I've discovered iRacing hehe.

What kind of bugs do you guys experience? Only thing affecting my online play is a random FPS drop sometimes, never during the race though. Another bug I had was AI drivers not knowing how to move around a stopped car on the track during a SP career race. Other than that, I feel like the bugs are minimal. The online connection seems kinda iffy when a race starts but during the race, the sync and stability seems pretty solid.
