    In the race options. You can do short, medium, long or extra long. I use long and it generally works out around 10 laps depending on the circuit.

    Earning around 100,000c per (long) race now with a few mods and VIP...more than enough to be honest. Especially as I’ve not bought a single car yet, choosing the car when you level up is by far the best option every time.

    @Captain_Toad Apparently I'm not a very shrewd purchaser of cars! :)

    I quite often take the credits as they're always giving me pants cars. But yeah I take the car if I'm remotely interested, and as long as I'm not getting distracted by shiny race gear.

    I'm rarely overloaded with cash as I have a tendency to go for GT type series which are quite often expensive cars, I'm back on short races now and don't have VIP or any mods. Never been stuck but I think I'll be kind of slow up the collection tiers.

    Found the option for king race, it’s in with assists, and it’s made a massive difference to the fun. Excellent shout @secombe

    I found with the long races you still had the issue that you could work your way through the field and emerge in second with the guy in first so far ahead as to be untouchable before it finished. I've gotten better at barging through at the beginning and I'm just back on short races so I can keep momentum going and enjoy the variety.

    It's great to have the option though, and does make the game feel different.

    I just want qualifiers and better AI dammit then I'd be all over this.

    As it is I might leave it for when I finally pick up an X.

    Yup, ditto here. I can see that qualifying might not be the best fit for a casual game like this, but there must be a method of putting you further up the grid on merit. Maybe based on previous results?

    Christ, if they even just made the AI times consistent across the field it would be alright. Why is there always one or two guys that are miles ahead of the rest of the pack? It's like a three person race with a bunch of grannies busying up the track.

    Has any one experienced frame rate differences in cockpit/dashboard cam (xbox)?

    Ive just had a race at Hockenheim and straight away something felt off, frame rate and felt like a bit of stuttering. I changed the cam to bonnet and buttery smooth, back to dash and it just felt to be not as smooth.

    Surely there's enough people that watch race weekends of F1 for a proper campaign to be viable? Codemasters were pretty good here, it has potential to be really exciting if presented well. Possibly enough to convince more casual players to give it a go.

    It would seriously help make it a proper motorsport title. Maybe Forza 8 eh? They're slowly getting to the poiny where they're going to need features like that to justify a sequel.

    Stats!

    Car Tier: 5
    Races: 60
    Cars Owned: 50
    Time Driven: 9hr 6m
    Average Speed: 91mph


    (Almost a third of my time driven was that one Spa 100 Extra Long achievement, blasting around Spa is probably why my average speed is up)

    Switching Drivatar Aggression OFF is such a drastic improvement it's hard to believe the option is so stupidly worded.
    Wait, just so we're clear here: if you literally switch drivatar aggression *off*, it means the option "limit Drivatar aggression" will be in the ON position, but I take it you mean the contrary, namely turn off the limit, right?

    Off means on and ON means off.
    It's the opposite of what you would think so it's either badly worded or a bug. People on the GTP forum found the same results.

    Limit aggression [OFF]

    @Nitrous Yeah. That much is clear. :)

    But which setting does user secombe prefer?

    I can highly recommend avoiding the F1 70s series - you just get battered all over the shop, wheels get stuck and you spend 5 minutes restarting the beginning over and over.

    Anyone else notice how the leading AI slows down on the last lap so you have a chance to catch the bugger? :D

    OFF.

    They are less aggressive. Still stupid, but less likely to run you off the road for the hell of it.

    @secombe You mean “ON” then. But thanks. :)

    @UncleLou No, I mean OFF!

    That’s the silliness of it, it makes no sense but they are certainly less aggressive with that setting set to OFF.

    Lots of similar comments on the FM7 boards.

    @secombe Alright, sorry. Must be a bug then because while the labelling is a bit “complicated“, it‘s not ambiguous in the slightest.

    Not really my experience though, I seem to get rammed more when the option says OFF. No thorough testing, mind.

    So, is it on or off? :D

    That bounty hunter event in rivals for VIP earns you a Camaro 16 but if you beat the 1:47.530 time you get a Holden a9x torana forza edition.

    I can't get anywhere near that. Currently in the 1:50xxx
