    Just to be clear, you want to start a fresh game with a totally new career?

    If so, you should see the screen above and can select 'Start new game'

    Another way to start fresh on the PC is to delete the profile manually, but you have to disable the Steam Cloud first, or Steam will try and replace the files you delete with the backup files in the cloud.

    1/ Run steam > Right Click on F1 2012 > Select 'Properties' > Select the 'Updates' tab > Deselect (Untick) the 'Enable Steam Cloud synchronisation for F1 2012'

    Now the cloud is disabled.

    2/ Browse to YourSteamInstallDrive:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\xxxxxxx\208500\remote folder

    xxxxxxx = Your Steam ID number, everyone has a different number here.

    208500 = F1 2012 profile save folder. 208500 is Steam's Application ID number for F1 2012

    In the 'remote' folder is your actually game save folder, there are 15 files in there that look like this - savegame@profile0#aggric czvkekg wom miwc. Make a backup copy of all of the files if you wish, but delete all the files in the 'remote' folder

    Start the game and you will have to create a new profile

    The save game bug is meant to be fixed in Patch 2, though some people still have problems.
    See my post here about the patches :-

    Patch Info Thread

    You can verify your game files to ensure that you are fully patched to Patch 12

    Run Steam > Right Click on F1 2012 > Properties > Local Files Tab > Verify Integrity of Game Cache. This will automatically download and fix any broken, missing, or corrupted files, remove any mods, and leave you with a fully patched standard game.

    Closing this thread now, as this is obliviously a crack copy of the game.

    Pirated and cracked versions games are not supported nor endorsed by RaceDepartment.

    Please buy the game .....

    7 day suspension - for two reasons.

    1) for pirating a game
    2) for asking Graham in private to help you with your pirated game
