    1) Yes it's normal to have cold (blue) tyres when coming out of the pits. You have to warm them up. So that means you can't drive at 100% because they're cold.
    2) No, i have never heard of tyres warming up from going on grass. lol
    3) I don't know why your engine smokes. Need more info for that.

    yes i know that are cold but in practise or gual where i am in garage i go out with colod i know it but i can go faster than 100 kph. !
    2)take bahrain if i go from the sant i am faster than 100 kph i can go normal.
    3)in every race i got smoke from a lap and then but if you hear it it makes a noise also , so i dont believe its a bug but id doesnt appear on screen problem, neither the ,mechanic tell me anythinng.
    i dont care much for the engine as i do for the tyres

    The smoke coming out from your engine is probably because you are changing your gears to fast. And from what I understood, you can't go fast if you leave the track. It's normal since CM have added this to prevent people from using runoff area for example in Abu Dhabi.

    What version of the game do you have? Is it updated by Steam to patch 12? It is very difficult to cause engine damage if you have purchased and fully patched the game.

    It may be worth verifying your game to ensure everything is ok.

    You can force Steam to recheck the files and download any broken. modified, or out of date files, by telling Steam to verify the game files.

    Run Steam > Right Click on F1 2012 > Select 'Properties' > Select 'Local Files' Tab > Select 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache

    This will not effect your career save, but will leave you with a verified, standard fully patched game, and remove any mods installed
