    Russian Grand Prix @ Sochi
    F1 2015 by Codemasters
    9pm BST

    This race is part of an ongoing series of races that will follow the 2015 and 2016 seasons, with a summer break to run some 2014 races on the F1 2015 platform. Although these are "club" races so as to be informal and less stringent on attendance, separate Championships will be scored for the remainder of the 2015 season, the 2014 interlude, and the bulk of the 2016 season start. Individual drivers only. Our aim is to re-live online the race we just watched, play the game in the most hardcore manner possible, and have fun. There will be bugs and glitches for sure, but things will get better with time hopefully.

    Eric, I wondered what happened to you. I have never heard of a DQ after pitting?!?! Was this because you didn't take the drive-through within three laps maybe? Usually when I even go near the pits I have no option to "pit" as it just serves the drive through automatically. Sucks also that we can't watch the replay after the race either. Wonder why? Seems to be only a single player function, so you can drool over you moves on the A.I. :rolleyes:.
    If it makes you feel any better, I thought I was getting this track down too, but you REALLY have to get these tracks down in F1...the margin for error is so small. I took a 5 sec. penalty for getting hit from behind. I kind of like that the A.I. now doesn't take any zig zag or blocking crap off of you, where they used to be suckers for that, and you could hold them off all day, but they may have swung too far in the other direction, as now you get penalized for getting hit in the rear. I do see the A.I. get penalties, so that's better, but worse than the penalties are the utter ruin the A.I. can have on your race (it's like someone spins you like a top if they touch your rear wheels). I guess that's a detriment to blocking, but a bit too harsh IMO. Sorry your race was screwed.
    I thought I could make a late comeback but I was just too far behind to make any ground, even with the A.I. pitting twice and me once. The primes could have gone the whole race, and mine almost had to. Peter had some bad luck at the end too. Not a good session for any of us. Hopefully, COTA will be better.

  18. Brought this over from the Lotus 49's Silverstone thread in case any likely F1 2015 enthusiasts read it here and can then express an interest.

    There's only a handful of the old Sunday league guys that have gone next gen of those about four or five have gone XBO and a couple have gone PS4. Don't very often see any of the XBO guys running F1 2015 any longer so doubtful they would have much interest in a league. The whole split between the next gen machines was always going to cause a problem here unfortunately. Plus it's always been a case of sticking to the usual schedule rather than following the real season, not something that I would be interested in, i've had enough of that after 6 seasons.

    Tagging the ones I know that have XBO in case they have an interest:-

    @Craig Renard @Mark Torres @Mitch Gosling @Chris Hempsall @Gareth Jones

    If any of you know of any others just tag them in here. I know Chris and Gareth are not wheeled (or gamed) up yet but just including in case there is some interest.
  19. That sucks Eric, Not sure why you would get DSQ'd for pitting... your penalty was just a 5 second time penalty wasn't it? Any corner cutting on your way back to the pits as thats one of the only reasons I could think you would get punished. I ended up with about 8+ corner cutting \ exceeding track limit warnings, some for when I got damaged early in the race and then when I lost the front wing later on and struggled to turn the car into the corners and then a bunch on the last lap when I overcooked it in the last sector trying to catch Nasr and I didn't get any penalty!!

    Yea I was all over the place after getting spun like a top..no wing..couldnt keep it on the track.maybe thats what happened as far as the dq..I like the ai in general but the ram rod move is getting annoying...4 360s for trying to avoid them is crap.but fingers craossed for cota.
