PS4 1.07 issue - Did not use required tires

Discussion in 'F1 2016 - The Game' started by shaqelton, Oct 21, 2016.

  1. I had a mid-session save before the most recent patch. I had qualified at Barcelona on the medium tires and started the race on those. I finished with soft - soft (at 50% race distance). 2 laps from the end I got the message that I needed to pit for medium or hards or be DSQ'd. I just kept going and got disqualified.

    Has anyone else had a similar issue (or do I not understand the tire rules?)
     
  2. Apparently you have to use the mandatory tyre if you qualified in the top 10 and as you qualified on the medium this does not count, so you need to put a set of hards on or go med-med-soft. Did you change the default tyre strategy?
     
  3. I might have changed the default strategy - I hadn't considered that the qualifying tire didn't count as the mandatory tire. I think you're right - I had always understood the regulations as "you need to use a medium or hard tire in the race" rather than "you need to use one of these specific sets of tires that are set aside for the race'.
    So I guess in the end I deserved my DQ!
