This has just arrived and is currently installing the update, surprised this didn't already have a thread. Anybody else bought this and up for some races at some point ?

EDIT: Had a quick go on TT mode round Monza and Spa in a few of the cars. Getting some terrible screen tearing on some of the slower corners, Monza for example has a really bad tear in turn 1 and exiting turn 2.

As always the car sounds are simply amazing especially in the older cars. Forget parping angels I want the McLaren MP4 to send me off when I peg it.

Been keeping an eye out for a thread for it but havnt picked it up yet, on most of the reviews they mention the bad screen tearing, I hope it's something they sort on an update, as always with a codemasters f1 game it seems to have alot of bugs, on mp especially, so happy to leave it a while until it comes down in price

So far I have only noticed the tearing when at top speed and then coming into a slow bend or corner. I noticed it at Spa when doing TT's but have just done an Event at Spa and didn't notice it then. It's probably because I was focused on racing rather then looking around.

I have only played it for a few hours but am loving it so far, the older cars sound absolutely amazing especially on the surround sound headphones. The new cars are seriously on rails until you hit the limit then it's wobbly bottom time.
I will get into the career mode over the next few days and looking forward to joining a low end team and building it up.

Copied from the patch notes.

Patch 1.05 has just been released on PS4. You’ll find the notes for this patch here, in English and other supported languages. We’re aiming to have this out on PC tomorrow afternoon, and it’s in with Microsoft and hoping to have it approved by tomorrow evening, though this will be going out with 1.4.



English

· A missing gear fault will always be fixed after swapping out a worn gearbox for a new one.



· Fixed a crash seen loading in to any Multiplayer session.



· Reduced the amount of gearbox and engine wear when playing 25% distance races

So how does this play with a pad?

Tempted to get it but also tempted to wait for Project Cars 2

If your not fussed about playing on the hardest difficulty with all assists turned off the default settings for the pad will do the job.
I am currently fine tuning the pad sensitivity settings to get them to how I like them. It's leaps and bounds ahead of PC1 in the handling department but this isn't a full on sim like PC1 and 2.

I will be gettting PC2 as well because it looks amazing.

Anyone still playing this?
Tumbleweed blows past.... :rotfl:

I have just restarted this after clearing a few other games from my backlog. I am going to do a full career (10 seasons) run starting in the Sauber.

I don't think many bought this because of previous versions and games like GT Sport/Forza 7.
