OK, so I thought i'd post mainly, what I would do to improve the career mode and see if people agree with my suggestions! Endless career Drivers come and go - skill levels improve with age until a peak, where they begin to diminish Teams change their drivers over the years You as an individual come and go, but can start again at that same point in time Teams come and go (perhaps leaving the main teams always there Each season your car isn't necessarily the same. How good your car is could be (partly) dependent on how you perform in pre-season testing, or how much budget your team has (which could be partly based on position in constructors). Changable Seasons Throughout the years, different rules are introduced or left out of a season (re-fueling, DRS, Kers, Turbo etc) Teams select which engines and tyres they will use, perhaps every season or perhaps with a contract. These should effect the performance of a team - especially tyres which should have different benefits in different conditions. Circuits can be removed and added to the calendar (which means the game actually has a pool of tracks, perhaps 5 more). Calendar could change around every season too, within reason (asian season, european season etc). Pre-Season and Mid-Season Testing (again, could be allowed some seasons and not others) More involvement in testing - could be where you have to visit your team's test centre to drive round speed circuits, handling circuits to try out different upgrades, with your involvement in what feels good / bad on the car - test worn tyres, good tyres, extreme conditions and more. Other options Ability to be a test driver for a team Ability to perform tasks for teams to show how impressive you are or to achieve a status within the team Perhaps could be tied in with starting unemployed. Sorry if the post is a bit messy. I'm starting to fantasise about these ideas now!!! Let me know what you guys think! Most of the things i've taken from an F1 Management game I used to play back in the day, and it made it fascinating!!!
