Too long pitstops

Discussion in 'F1 2013 - The Game' started by robbe8, Oct 19, 2013.

  1. Hey there, I'm playing a career and after 12 races, happened 2-3 times that my pitstop lasted about 7 sec and lost podium cause of it.
    It happened with both Ferrari and Lotus, should I consider it as a bug or my engineers are just stupid?

    Did your pitstop last so long sometimes?

    I always assume that most drivers are coming in on the same lap. So I either go one lap longer or one lap shorter, to help prevent being delayed by the lollipop man.

    What has annoyed me since F1 2010, is that when you have minimum wing damage, not effecting your race, they still change the frigging nose, and delay the pit stop.

    A simple option in the pit lane, when the driver has nothing to do is ask the question. Change Damaged Nose? Yes/No

    Otherwise most pit stops are in the region of 3 seconds .... which is fine

    I feel your pain Graham about the minimum wing damage.

    Another thing that annoyes me is when you come in for a Drive through pen, they bloody change your wing & tyre's, so you have to go around again to complete your Drive through.

    It just happened to me at Spa, and that tight pit lane.

    1st pit stop, clipped the right side of the pit lane and damaged the wing endplate. Nothing happened during the pit stop, it was totally normal.

    2nd stop, they change the nose and 2 cars sailed past me in the pit lane, I never did catch them up .... Grrrr! :sick:
  5. Then wait with your drive through to the last lap you can serve it. ;)

    No, unfortunately it was never an option in any of the previous games.
  8. It happened once to me with Williams, AIs Professional, in Career mode.
