Major career flaw, component wear in 25% races

    Over on Steam, there is a discussion of a major issues with 25% career length races and engine wear. The game treats each practice lap the same as a race lap but calculates the number of wear laps at 25% of full race distance. This means that each practice lap is equivalent of ~4 full race laps. This means that your engines and gearboxes will be worn out after every race (about 60% wear). This could be fixed in a patch but Codemasters also made the game...so, it might not be. Just thought you all should know. Other than that, the game is actually a solid GAME (not sim) but game with a nifty career mode if this gets fixed.

    Yes I've noticed this too, I started a career using 25% distance... Thanks for pointing it out as I didn't test to see wear at 50% or 100% so I thought it was normal. Hopefully they patch it!

    Looking at the Codie's thread, it would appear to be just the 25% race setting affected

    Steam says that 50% is fine. Just 25% (aka the most popular race length) is bugged.

    haven't checked on my own, but could we set the race distance to 100% during practice and Quali (even if it's not doing anything at all) and put it back to 25% only for the race ?
