    What nationality are you? Maybe someone who speaks your language can help.

    Do you mean when you start a race the screen / display goes red?

    I think when the lights go out the others go and he has some kind of lag and the game lets him go a second later or something. But I don't know if it's this, I can't understand him neither. :D

    I notice he has posts in some mod threads, maybe its a mod issue?

    Try removing any mods / modifications.

    Ah, well then its either -

    1. Database mod which does not allow online
    2. Firewalled

    Most probably firewalled. How is your internet / network setup?

    Try these steps......

    1. Turn off Windows Firewall
    2. If you run a 3rd party firewall, make sure you add rules to allow F1 2011.exe access (incoming & outgoing) to the right ports.
    3. Turn off uPNP on your router (if on) and then manually setup the same ports on your router to be forward to your PC, either by name or IP address (depends on router and whether you have static or dynamic IP set on your PC)

    These are the ports - you need to tell your firewall software to allow access to F1 2011.exe, and tell your router to allow access to your PC

    TCP port 80.
    UDP and TCP port 3074.
    UDP port 88
    UDP and TCP port 53
    TCP port 443

    Once you 'think' you have done it right, download this little bit of software and check the ports are truely open -
    http://portforward.com/help/portcheck.htm

    That site above also gives good information on how to forward ports for most popular routers if you are unsure how it all works.

    One other alternative for a quick connectivity test is to bypass your router if possible, use a LAN cable, turn off all your firewalls and security and try it that way - just to be sure thats its your network setup thats the problem, and not you ISP.

    Shout if you need more help mate.

    You said 'only online'. PC spec would effect offline game too.
    Although I do not understand the red screen you mention, if the game is crashing on the grid for online only, and your game is not modded, then it must be network, unless I am way off.

    If it is not your network settings / firewall then I can't help anymore.

    Hopefully someone from Romania with good English can come and help us out! :)

    Then it is not your PC spec.

    Go to this link - http://portforward.com/help/portcheck.htm
    Download and install the app.

    Test these ports -
    TCP port 80
    UDP port 3074
    TCP port 3074
    UDP port 88
    UDP port 53
    TCP port 53
    TCP port 443

    If they are 'Not Open' then you need to follow my instructions in my earlier post above.
