    Too high revs. I had one round Canada earlier. Its just f*cking epic. I set my gear ratios up wrong i suppose and it just blew. You just ned to rev the engine. It blows quite fast tbh

    It sometimes just happens. I have done a whole season, and it blew once.Tbh, you dont want your engines blowing. You only have 8

    ive not had an engine failure but i have had a DRS failure in qualifying. Luckily i was able to use it again a short time later but scary none the less when your after a decent hot lap.

    How to get an engine blow up:===> Drive on the pit straight at high speed (preferably top of 7th gear) and shift down super fast to gear 1...TA-DAA! your engine just blew up!

    Hope this helped

    could be graphics settings, I haven't seen any fire yet and I've blown 3 engines.

    I play with everything on low
