While I wasn't too fussed about doing a 2018 F2 season, I think I'm going to start a 2019 season. I think I'll play as Alesi Jr. as I was a bit of a fan of Jean.

Edit: In the end I’ve chosen to play as Jordan King as he’s the only driver in the field I’ve actually seen racing, in Indycar. I never have time to actually watch F2.

One issue I have with Codemaster's f1 games is a problem they've never fixed, i.e. the AI cars ruining laps during practice & qualifying. They come out of the pits & race me down the straight on their outlap & then break test me on the corner, or haphazardly feign moving over on the straight to let me pass & then block me on the next turn. When I'm doing research & development, it's totally infuriating. In real life they'd be penalized but in the game they're not. I also believe the AI are far too aggressive going into turn one the first lap & their behaviour seems to be tailored for lower damage settings rather than full simulation. Starting in midfield requires a miracle to not damage the front wing on the first turn. That seems like a bigger problem this year than in previous versions.

Blasphemy! :eek: I'll start the season as Raghunathan, he's a living legend.

I loved playing through the 2018 F2 season. It was so realistic, battling with Russell and Norris for the title with Albon and De Vries popping up at the front on occasion (I was Markelov) and reverse grid heroics from Ghiotto and Fuoco. There were some races where I’d literally be fighting wheel to wheel all race. My only slight criticism was that the supersonic helicopters were off putting (this was pre-patch, I think that’s been fixed now) and that nobody ever tried running a different strategy. Adored the season, brilliant.

But haven’t brought myself to play the 2019 season yet. The field is weaker, the Hubert/Correa tragedy is an issue too. I’ve tried to start one a few times and felt slightly flat about it.

In the end I chose Ilott for no particular reason. I’ve done a few races but without the development, rivalry and parts management of the career mode I got a bit bored.

The game update to V 1.15 will swap Gasly and Albon to reflect their current teams.

 

For those of you who found it bothersome, the mid-season driver transfer logic has been amended, and an option to disable driver transfers or limit them to the off-season is being incorporated.

The demo for this is now available on at least Playstation and probably Xbox too.

From what I understand there's a Microsoft issue that tends to delay updates. I'm sure we'll get the update too.

Hopefully. The one that added the 2019 F2 grid came pretty quickly from what I remember. 
 

I love my XB1X but the delay in patches compared to PS4 is a pain.

Then I just have to wait and see(read) how this all works out, and then I might end up buying the game! :)

Patch out on Xbox, finally. 
 

makes career mode worth bothering with, for me, finally. Also discovered they’ve got the option to skip F2 and avoid having to have Butler and Weber on the grid too. AND you can now choose your team-mate.

That option was always there.

 

I don't see why the driver swaps were a deal breaker for your career mode, but hey, enjoy it. It's bloody good fun either way.

I am still in season 1 in career, currently at Singapore. I have been procrastinating about doing this race for over a month, something about it is just really off putting to me. Not a fun track, it just feels like work. Sort of like Yas Marina.

It would be interesting if you could make all the driver transfers yourself as opposite to the computer throwing out some random **** like Vettel in a Williams. Or at least being able to regulate it down in a way that only 1-2 driver changes are possible during the season and more post-season. Since it's a 10 years career and they have F2 drivers in this game I also dont see why you cant have them getting promoted at some point (as a option). There are plenty situations where the driver I replaced comes back when I leave, you could have a F2 driver for that instead here and there.

Nearly done with my second season and there’s only been 1 in season driver swap. I don’t think the logic was that broken to begin with.

 

As for Vettel in a Williams, depends how quick the Williams is. As far as know it was never randomly generated, but tied to the team performance. What’s unrealistic is how teams can move up and down the pecking order so quickly.

 

Having the F2 drivers in would be a good option though.

My silly season into season 3 has been disappointingly boring. I wanted to take my No.1 to Williams, so I swapped with Perez who is now in my place at Mercedes. Honestly Codemasters, I know people complained there were too many swaps but this is too far the other way.

At Suzuka, still in my first season. I chose Verstappen as my rival earlier in the season and he has had at least 8 DNFs so far. RBR is my main competition at this point in the season so it feels like the game wants to make it easy for me, lol.

Also PU regulations are changing after only 1 season. Did this happen to anyone else or is something like this random?

I had some regulation changes at the end of season 1. Can't remember what parts needed work. No regulation changes into season 3.

One annoying thing that has come up recently is that I cant change brake bias with the red dial on the G29 anymore. It was a pain before because it did not work if you were turning the wheel at the same time, but now it doesn’t seem to work at all. The dial works fine in GTS though.

I made a "terrible mistake" by buying a VR headset, because now I can't enjoy driving on a flat screen anymore. :(

Yeah im staying away from vr for awhile. Once I make the switch I will not be able to go back! My projector does a good job anyway, it’s nice and easy on the eyes.
