    Looking forward to getting some practice in for this one.. might be my best chance to start off a career at last this year and finally get to try out the practice session tests :thumbsup:.

    Look forward to seeing everyone's progress here too... will be good to see the ol' Xbox F1 League forum alive again :)

    Sure will be. Now is the time to get the word out. I think there are many people who want to play with no assists, but leagues like XRL basically ban them if hey are not fast enough with assists on. :O_o:

    I have already started testing. :ninja:. Once again, how the mightly McLaren have fallen.

    I thought hard about it, but decided against it because the car we get as a rookie is not quite up to par with what we drive in the league. I didn't wan't to ingrain bad habits or second guesses more than they already are.

    Another factor was the ability to test in an online session. You can get a lot of data that way. :ninja:. On the downside, you adroitly mentioned the one big advantage of career -- the practice programs. In fact, you have given me an idea...

    The online practice sessions are handy for sure. It's a shame they don't allow you to continue past the practice into qualifying and the race as well but at least you can get all you need setup wise in the practice.

    I'm afraid you will have to race in a real man's car to practice off-line. Such as:

    I just went back to my career. was stuck at Baku for the last couple months.... completed it yesterday. Even with the added AI level I still struggle to find the right one. Set to Master here i was placing last, but set to Expert (one level lower) i was too fast. Think i just need to leave it at Master.

    That's right. Nothing equals the Red Bull. It is the Uberauto in the game, and sadly I will not even need its superpowers to beat you.

    Don't those in the EU form a committee or something to study the environmental impact first? You need the proper clearances, after all. Besides, your leader agrees with me. :roflmao: So don't count on F1 2017 to rescue your ass. :whistling:
