Unable to select all option tyres in race and qualifying

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by Gianluigi Migliozzi, Jan 30, 2013.

  1. In race and in qualifying sessions I can't select the 5th option tyres. The only option selections I have, in the menu, are 2, 3 and 4, but one of them is usually worn out for the race because I've used it in qualifying. So that doesn't allow me to use soft tyres for 3 times (as the standard strategy pit suggests), and I usually have to use two soft and two hard. Is it intended or is it just me who has this issue? This happens in every mode, career and quick race, and ONLY if I play the practice session.

    I'll post a screenshot in case my description wasn't clear enough.

    The game is in italian, I'm sorry. As you can see, 5 and 1 choices are "greyed out", so I can't select them. In qualifying I will use one and wore it out, making it unusable for race. If this isn't an issue for top teams who reach the final qualifying session (top 10), as the tyre you choose for that session will be the same at the beginning of the race, it is very annoying in all other cases. I understand that one of them (the number 1) HAS to be greyed out due to rules, but what about the 5? Is this intended? If it's not, am I the only one who has this issue?

    That might explain why there are sometimes more sets shown than available. :)
     
  3. So, the game actually works as intended? It's strange tho that I can use the fifth option tyres if I don't do the practice session.
     
  4. I find it a bit hard to understand all the F1 rules, so bear with me please.
    If I make it into Q3 , but think that I probably cant beat my best Q2 time, or even if I thought I could, it would not give me more than perhaps one grid position better, then can I just put on fresh tires and skip Q3 and go straight to race so I have 100% rubber, or do I have to go out on Q3, and and quit real quick to keep the new tires? Thanks.

    You can simply stay in, that way you can pick whatever tyre set you want. That's how it's working in real-life, at least. Never tried that in-game but it should be the same. :)

    yup, Tom's right. Just sit through it or skip it... it doesn't matter. Then you can start on the fresh tyres of your choice. Options or Primes. I've done it before.
