afaics they could have an entire real F1 season at Silverstone. Take over a hotel, like the Whittlebury Park (which is probably empty) get the minimal race teams there, isolated, tested and quarantined, and the FoM camera crews, and run 10 or 20 races. They could keep it interesting by making the drivers swap teams, 1 or 2 races with every team. Very safe, very watchable, super genuine wdc and wcc

i don't think it's true they're helpless, unless anyone can see something i'm missing
It's massive a waste of medical resources first off.

Keeping everyone in quarantine for those 10-20 races is also unrealistic for obvious reasons.

On top of all that, one slip up in the testing and quarantine procedures and you will find your self with hundreds of new corona cases overnight.

All that just to watch some racing??

if they just quarantine for 14 days it doesn't use any medical resources, and it's if anything more realistic than everyone supposedly staying at home not meeting anyone. And when they reopen the factories that's the same situation but with much more risk of infection being brought in

And yes just for racing, but F1 has always used resources insanely for going round and round

You did that with default set up and auto ERS mode? That's what these races are being run with - so the drivers with no experience of a particular games physics aren't at a disadvantage with the weird setup quirks.
The ERS is set to full in qualifying so not an issue, as for the setups, the default setups (there are 5 to choose from) are easily good enough for qualifying. To back that up, there is always default setups in the top 50 in the Time Trial leaderboards. The custom setups help a lot in races in terms of tyre life ect.

Working against me was the fact we did full qualifying, so only had enough time for 2 runs like in real life. On the tv they had 18min qualifying, so an extra run was available. Plus they were allowed assists where as we use none at all.
Aren’t you able to improve your car in F1-2019? That lap is great regardless

In career mode you can yes, but multiplayer mode with cars set to equal, its the same car for everyone.

Nascar had a brilliant virtual race in iRacing...with all the real drivers (i think so) and commentary with all kinds of features (like Crank it Up)...it was like watching the real thing!!

MotoGP will have a Virtual race and both Rossi and Marquez will contest it...yet Formula One does a Virtual race and not even Verstappen (a true sim racer) and the other youngsters compete! They must find a way somehow to get more real drivers in the next virtual races! Even Johnny Herbert did ok...

So please enlighten us

Driving a dominant car in the most dominant team ever, helped by favorable rule changes, against subtop teammates does not make you the GOAT (but still superb). It just helps you inflate/skew your stats.

Max is just a racing machine isn't he, the most talented driver there's ever been IMO. Yes he has had help but he was born to do this......

I think Juan, Jim, Stirling and a few others might beg to differ... :wink:

Actually, they probably wouldn't put themselves forward for that claim because they were generally much less egotistical than modern drivers.

No comparison, they couldn't carry his racing gloves. Part time drivers against a performance line bred racing machine, nice try......

Just started playing the game and my best time in Qualy (career mode) was 1:33.XX... I’m really bad at it!

If we are talking about being bred for racing, let's talk about Darwinism. While I don't think comparisons can be made across eras, Clarke, Fangio, Moss etc raced in an era when the consequences of being overly aggressive or making a mistake had a much high chance of being permanent (RIP JC). These guys were the best of the best.
