I got absolutely destroyed at Baku on ultimate but seem to be within a few tenths of Alonso in my AUS career mode race. McLaren feels so much nicer to drive than the Merc.

Haha I have no problems with oversteer and I'm driving the Manor in career. I think it will might take some time to adapt to the new handling.

I agree however on the HUD. Don't like it neither
its going to take a lot of getting use to and that my t80 is nearly unusable. i think the ffb on a pad is weaker this year and this game is the complete opposite to last year's in the corners. on 2015 it was a low gear game where you had to get the nose in and then deal with the oversteer. so far it seems like all the lap time now is gained just getting on the throttle, there are a few corners i'm taking 2 gears higher on this game just to kill the wheel spin.

I don't know what the issue is but some cars and tracks feel fine whereas others are borderline undriveable. Driving Baku in the Merc and having no idea if the car is going to brake properly or just oversteer for every millimetre of the track is not enjoyable in my opinion.

The Merc should be the car with the best balance but its just a pain in the ass to drive. This was spoken about constantly in the beta so its annoying that it wasn't fixed.

2 races into my McLaren career on ultimate. Feels quite nice to drive, a bit slippery on traction but apart from that it's good. Australia was horrible, nowhere near the pace of button and I made a disastrous strategy call during a safety car. Bahrain on the other hand was very enjoyable, I was blown out in quali but finished just a few seconds behind button who saved his tyres and did me on the softer compound at the end.

I think there's still the issue that was raised in the beta that the AI are too quick in quali compared to the race. I want to have good races so play on ultimate but always losing quali and practice objectives really hurts rival battles and the team objectives.

Disagreeing with you, the AI just loses way to much time in traffic and fighting each other

There's something seriously wrong with the ai. Every-time I overtook someone at Australia they would completely lift off the throttle and lose over a second. This was the case with ai to ai battles as well. It's so stupid that they still haven't figured out a way for the ai to get out of the way without losing an incredible amount of time.

Does anyone have a good bahrain setup? :p

So far so good. Ultimate ai, mclaren. Got 3rd in australia after being last at one point due to the rain screwing up my strategy and mclaren screwing the pitstops. Smashed Alonso in q tho, very suprised about that

Just had an incredible race at China. Wet Q2 so I snuck into Q3 and the strategies were all over the place. I don't think there was one lap where I wasn't battling with someone. Ultimate AI is such a contrast to 2015 AI, it may have some flaws but I think Codemasters have done a great job.

There is my helmet if you can see it if you click on the image. I thought we would be able to edit the extra helmets but nope. Not really sure if it's ugly or actually quite good.

I am really happy now , that i redeemed the career boost. On Ultimate it is nearly unpossible to do the tyre wear test, because you have to push like a madman to meet the target time, and also the Quali practice is really difficult. At least if you fail all the R&D events, the progression is somewhat realisitc

really? because I found it alright. Sure it isn't easy.. but definetly not as hard as the quali test where I actually have to steal someone's slipstream.

not really sure of what to make of my pace so far. i struggled immensely around Australia in the TR on Legend difficulty in career mode getting knocked out in Q1 and finishing 10th barely with a lot of help from the AI, but on TT I'm right up there at Silverstone and Baku so hopefully its just Australia bad track for me and not liking the setup very much.

Ai seems to be very quick around Australia
