    Im at Yas Marina - presently 7th in the WDC driving a Williams at PRO level with all aids off and sims on - I have contract offers from Sauber, Virgin, and Williams again. I have till Sau Paulo for Sauber. Couple of questions I hope someone can answer for me... is Sauber a better choice than Williams? Do I have to accept the Sauber contract before Sau Paulo or can I accept straight afterwards? For season 2 should I go legend (only won 2 races) or stay PRO?

    Finally I've been following the 3 AI mods that are posted here, any advice on whether to use any of these? Some say that you have to start a new season... can I use at start of season 2? any experiences? Thanks

    Personally you should go to Legend as you are doing better than a Williams should be.

    As for wether to go to Sauber it all depends on who is above who in the constructors in their tier.

    Finished 5th at Yas - no further contracts.. Constructors order Ferrari,RedBull,McLaren,Renault.Williams,Mercedes,Sauber,Toro,ForceI,HRT,Virgin
    Does this mean williams will move up a tier so I would be better off staying than going to Sauber?

    Yeah I'm in a bit of the same situation as you. Got an offer from FI, you Sauber, but both in our respective championships look like they'll go down 1 tier, while Williams up 1.
    Sauber in your next season may replace Williams in tier 4, or not (could be Toro Rosso too). Only thing for sure is Williams will get promoted to tier 3, so I'd stick with it.

    Sauber will replace Mercedes in tier 2 so I'd go there and you'll be a tier better off

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race. Premium

    One small tangent is whether you are #1 driver at Williams?
    If you are then you get to decide the R&D path.
    If so by choosing the lower path (cant remember the name at this moment but not agressive its intermediate or balanced) you will get lower targets in Quali and race, therefore beat them more often so getting higher rep points and a better team offer for the following season. So it boils down to your desire to get the best WDC result next season or get the best seat for the one after.
    I'm personally not sure if the Sauber (which starts in tier 3) or the Williams (which your perfomance should lift to tier 3) will be quicker.
    I second Andrews remark that you are ready for Expert Mode. If youare beting your team mate you need to drop assists.
    Have fun.

    I'm in a similar situation to you too. Currently at Williams, 6th in the Constructors championship, I guess that's in tier 2? The best offer I have is from Force India but it looks they are in tier 3 and won't finish higher. So Williams and Force India are likely to swap places so it's better for me to stay with Williams.

    From what I've read and understood of the career game I'm not sure you can 'jump' tiers from 1 season to another.

    It'd seem FI and Williams both start season 1 in tier 4. So if FI performs badly, they go down 1 tier to tier 5, and if Williams do well they go up to tier 3, but not 2, even if you end up very high in WDC / WCC. Well, that's just my interpretation...

    Oh right. I didn't know there were 5 tiers, I thought Williams started in tier 3 (of 4) and FI started in tier 2.
