We had complaints about the game with bad frame rates and that cars feels completely different with qualification and race.
Do you guys also have the same feelings? and I'm only talking about the game from yesterday.
And I know the lag i was producing ;)
The graphics felt a bit blurred, but the track does that with multiple players on it.

Sure the car felt different - it would be wrong if it didn’t.
If you look at the facts, the car have 80 liters more fuel, the time of day changed and so did track temps quite a lot actually - when the race ended the track had a temp more than 10° C higher than it was in qualifying . And then there are the Livetrack 3.0 as well.

Frame rate was an issue, not sure on how car felt as it would anyway with quali and race.

I know the audi had low grip by would have been set up issue.

I am glad someone else noticed the blurred graphics I thought it was my eyes going bonkers.

I agree with a lot of what has been said above, frame rate suffered and I am on PS4 pro. I had actually done this race distance with same settings twice beforehand and the car does feel very different in race trim with hard tyres and full fuel plus you do lose tyre temp on the parade lap. But lagging was very bad only noticeable on your car really though Michael--NL. Overall it was a good race, and looking forward to the next one, hopefully with no lagging.

Who was flashing me last night after an incident? I think @Alex Varic ?
Not checked replay yet but saw a car trying to force me to go wide on a one line corner and I got hit on the back left side.

Not being funny but it was a bad place to try and overtake when I only could turn sharply left on a tight corner with only one line through in my opinion, didn't appreciate the flashing either which is also against the rules and no I wasn't going to wait as I felt it was a racing incident.

It’s always the overtaking car that have to make sure it happens safely. If you felt forced of track then report to stewards

I'm really sorry about that, we were involved in an incident which was technically your fault so I thought you should have waited. In reality though it was quite an aggressive move which I shouldn't have expected you to anticipate.

I anticipated it Alex I saw you go inside but you only just had your bonnet inside? I shouldn't be expected to yield on that corner and just go drive weak and off track because you wanted the position when I have racing line and still ahead technically, if you was dead on side by side I would have yielded and let you go.
In a way, I could also say you should anticipate me turning in and should have hung back a touch, you would have had me on next corner no problem.

Just my opinion though and no sour grapes from me, like I said, racing incident.
My vid will be up soon, would like to see your pov if you have it.

Yeah I agree on racing incident. From my POV it appeared that I was alongside you completely.

Yes framerates not so much, on a couple of occasions only but the car felt completely weird. Grip got worse as the race went on, almost as if the track was wet
