I read that the car strength is done in a tier system, teams 1-3, teams 4-6, teams 7-9 etc. Playing career mode on lotus, got 70 points (all mine) first season - was expecting the car to be better this season. It isnt. For some reason there are never any R&D objectives on practice anymore either so cant improve it that way. Also still the teams number 2 driver despite beating trulli in every race last season apart from one I crashed out in The only thing thats actually changed is that trulli is now magically 10 times better than he was last season whilst I cant even do as well as I did with the shitty first year lotus all of a sudden. Whats going on? Feel like smashing my xbox. Getting tempted to restart and play 3 lap races on easy until I get a drive with a good team, but I really wanted to do it properly.
