  4. I am happy with this patch. It resolved some Safety Car issues including the silly "Stay within ten car lenghts" warning when you were right behind the driver in front.
    And the relative performance updates really changed my career mode. Because I was already halfway through the season Manor was suddenly 5th best and Haas went down to last.
  5. Happy to say PlayStation multiplayer fixed.
    Great news :thumbsup:

    Couple of niggles left.

    Pit lane exit crossing white line just gives a warning instead of ten place starting penalty.

    Start line looks like someone has dropped a smoke grenade on the lights going out:thumbsdown:
    Very difficult to see anything infront now.

    Heat haze needs turning down. Must be a drain on the cpu & not really a game changer:rolleyes:

    Jeff is back to being an absolute legend on the old walkie talkie.

    Thoroughly good job though:geek:
