Ok there is something that annoys me about the game. But first off as a sim and as a F1 game it's the best one i have played in a very very long time. It trumps F1 2010 in every way imo and it really is a very addictive game. But here is the problem i have been having. I started a career immediately when i got the game and i am racing for HRT after i started with Lotus last year and other than qualifying and practice the races themselves are driving me mad. I mean i qualify in pretty respectable places with the highest point of my new career being a 6th spot in Shanghai after what seemed like a utterly mad qualifiying session. But i am not interested in talking about Qualifying because the thing that is nagging away at me are the races themselves. All the races start off the same for me, in the first 2-3 corners i climb up a few spots and manage to get into a higher spot. But after that moment in the race everything just seems to go downhill for me. I feel i drive pretty decently and i do my best to keep competitive. But i have a few problems. 1) The racers in front of me are gone for the rest of the match and only a pitstop for them can get me their position in the race. I never get close enough to use DRM or manage to overtake them in corners. They are always ''GAP'' in front of me with no apparent chance to get closer. 2) The cars behind me are a bit of the same story, they stick behind me because i tend to be aggressive to people trying to overtake but once they finally manage to get alongside me just like the cars in front of me, they are gone for good and i never ever catch up to them until either they go into pit-lane or they have some freak accident. Of course it's useful to know my difficulty and assists because most of the time they tell the whole story to the more experienced players on these forums. Well those are my assists and diff settings for whoever wants to know. Of course i do not expect to win every race, i don't even expect to win ANY race in the HRT or finish top 10 every race because that isn't fun either. It just annoys me that even the class i am driving against, 24-14 positions are never in any type of battle against me unless they are behind me. I want to be able to fight with the car in front of me for his position instead of never seeing him after lap 2 and only having to defend against everyone behind me. So what is my problem? Is the HRT car so much more inferior to all the other cars on the grid? Am i just such an average driver. Or is the AI just going out there to laugh at me as they drive past me? It's probably a very silly and easy answer, but i would rather have one instead of just going crazy with this annoyance.
