SC after patch 2

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Atanas Penchev, Nov 24, 2011.

  1. Seems like the things are getting lost again.
    I had SC in 2nd lap carrier mode and got drive through aswell.I went to the pits to serve it, but there was again the pit crew w8tting for me with no option to skip them.As usual, no drive through served ,only tires changed. I still had to enter to the Pit limiter once again.
    Here's how the lack of Pit Assist button/option as in 2010 is so valuable.

    You cannot serve a penalty under the safety car, so the pit crew assumed it was a pit stop .....

    FIA F1 Rule 16.4 .......blah ....blah ....blah ...... However, unless the driver was already in the pit entry for the purpose of serving his penalty, he may not carry out the penalty after the safety car has been deployed.
     
  3. Oh my fault then.Had no idea about this rule.Thanks dude :cool:
    But still even if i drove through the Pit Limiter i did not want a Pit Stop in 2nd lap.And there wasn't an option to skip them.

    Yeah, unfortunately you cannot just carry on and just drive through (because you made a mistake going into the pits at the wrong time), skipping the pit stop, then serve the penalty drive though later, after the safety car has come in.

    In this game UNLESS you are serving a penalty, the game always assumes that you want to pit stop.

    Another small annoyance, is if you have a little bit of front wing damage, that is NOT effecting your car badly, the game will ALWAYS give you a new nose, so you have a longer pit stop, even though you only really want new tyres.
