    ^ for me Catalunya is one of the easier ones to drive fast, I won by like 20 secs on this one but I don't do nearly as well on the others, this was only on normal though

    for me china was the easiest i mean i won that by like 25 some seconds and was lapping cars lol.

    Cata took a bunch of laps to get a few of the sections down, but once i learned where i could really push the car it was not too bad, then it was just taking it easy in the turns i could spin if i got a little too overzealous, or after that tire change. And avoiding that chicane like the damn plague, i mean they use those for safety features? Half the field spent most of practice and part of qualifying spinning out there. those "safety" chicanes seem more like death traps to me. :p

    now monaco that track is a royal pita, go wrong there and there is no way to turn car around then you get blocking penalties left and right cause you cannot move and got nowhere to go when the other cars come. and if you do anything then you get a dangerous driving penalty it is a tad silly.

    Use software audio instead, I get loading freezes way too often with HW acceleration enabled.

    Interesting comments
    I have been trying career mode with AI on pro and doing very well. But just to get in the top three at Catalunya I have to reduce the AI to amateur.
    Does any one know what to do at monaco?

    PS
    as we sit here and discuss.. the nerds have slashed opened this game and began the heavy modding process... all the bugsfixes and upgrades we need will be available from other sources..
    CodeMasters?
    We doh need no stinkin CodeMasters!!

    I don't have any freezes, CTDs or anything alike. I'm still waiting for a patch as the game is no fun like it is right now.
    Trying to play the normal career mode with AI that doesn't pit or a ranking system that puts you on a different place than you were in-race just doesn't cut it for me.

    hm what to do at monaco go fast but not too fast? heh. 2 turns you can just downshift and tap the brakes for, ive set p1 times in practice on occassion but to do it consistently is a hard hard task. and only gottten it by a few 100s of a second or one practice hamilton out lapped me by .001, but pushing too hard and then you lose the car and your really boned. seems that entire track you just have to find a pace and rhythm and go with it and do as best you can. might consider qualifying on prime tires and starting the race on them just so you can do a long stint hopefully keep up a decent pace and stay out a long time before pit hopefully building up a gap, so you come out not too bad.

    one of the trickier courses for sure since one error will cost you big time, and that one error could get you penalized since the game seems not to notice that it is near impossible to move if you get spun, think there is a reset car to track option in the menu, but that so much cheese and i been avoiding that and the flying lap option form the qualifying menu. only one i use it quit to garage when i have done my lap rather than driving all the way around.

    i honestly don't think CM would be able to fix the LAP time issues. not that they can't, but because the issue seems to be at the core of the game. CM chose to do it the easy way by giving out pre-determined laptimes, that is in no way related to what the cars on track are actually posting.

    im the same not had 1 crash or anything similar , however , i have only done time trial not done 1 single minute of career , not a career person lol

    its sad that the career seems so bugged , my mate on his ps3 has suffered just as bad as the pc users even having to start all over again with corrupted save data

    epic fail from codemasters

    @novice: As long as the game works I don't bother the times. What I experienced for example was a race where I crossed the finish line on 5th just to see the results where I was being placed 12th. Or those nasty pit stop bugs that occur even with altered pit stops.
    I'll just wait and hope for an improvement.

    @ukraver: Well, so far I like the idea behind the career and I'm not too interested in full-time online races. Only 2 or 3 of my friends have the game anyhow so I guess I'll have to stick with the career mode.

    the corrupted save happen when you got a r&d update to do. if you quit out at all it corrupts the saves. hell i speeded the thing and went out from the ending thing and it still corrupted the save. there is a workaround for it but seem just damn easier to just do the whole damn thing at one time if you can. had two saves go bad, both on monaco my favorite track, but i backup them after every race. so i do not have to go back too far but it if does it again on this damn race i am shlving the game period until they fix the gdamn thing cause i am sick to death of this track nm this time the race is s torrential downpour.

    Why is the car handling so much better in time trials vs carreer and grand prix modes?
    The car is on rails and turns much tighter in TT, but outside of TT it's sluggish and slippery. My lap times can be as much as 7 seconds faster in TT.

    first place in monaco! lol no pit stop at all lost my front wing halfway thru the race, kept frantically trying to keep the car on the wet track and put in fast laps and push hard massa was on a tear putting in fast laps behind me, oops spin he passed me caught him up oops i spun him 1st place then just tried to pull away and next thing i know the race was over.

    not tried time trial at all dunno maybe it is the optimal setup for track conditions and light fuel load?

    I think I figured it out - in time trials the tracks are fully rubbered and the cars represent fully upgraded kits (research & development upgrades maxed).

    if you don't pit at all does the game penalise you?

    nope wet race n all not sure the rules this year but they never called me in for a stop even tho other cars started to stop like the last 6 laps if the race for some odd reason.

    dry race you have to stop for tires once, suppose wet race it is not required since you cannot run option tires in the wet. either that or pit stop is buggy for players as well as ai.

    The rule that states you must use the option and the prime tyre in a race does not apply if the race is declared 'wet' just the same as a real F1 race.
    So at least that one is'nt a bug.

    By the way, rename old delete catchup.xml under ai folder and no more rubber band AI. AI doesn't feel fake after that in race.
