Where is Vettel, Webber and Hamilton?

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by wizzard, Sep 29, 2011.

  1. Hi

    I just started a career season with F1 2011 and after 3 races, i still havent seen Vettel or Hamilton in the top 5. Vettel is qualifying in the top 10 but never on pole and the same goes for Hamilton.
    Is anyone else experiencing this ?
  2. Yes, I was at first, but they have come back to Top 5 since then. I am getting ready to do India, and the top 5 standings are:

    1. Alonso
    2. Hamilton
    3. Vettel
    4. Webber
    5. Button
  3. Sounds like F12011 is simulating the 2012 season, where Seb is nursing an injured index finger after a bit of hypertension and McLaren, in an effort to save money, have decided to run Lewis without a front wing ;)
  4. LOL, I'm 3 races into my career and Button, Hamilton and Vettel have each won one. Thankfully I have been too far down the order to see the Finger sticking out of the cokpit!
  5. I am 3 races in and i have webber Alonso and Massa... do you believe it Massa winning the races!
    No poles for hamilton, vettel or alonso.
    I just dont understand!
  6. I just did a race at istanbul, granted it was a short weekend, but hamilton qualified in 14th! I qualified 17th, as Paul Di Resta, and Sutil quali'd 8th!

    I don't know what car he was driving, definitely wasn't the one I had.
  7. Ha-ha-ha, it seems to me that codies got an inspiration by last season with 5 drivers fighting for the crown:)

    Now at Spain, and in previous 4 races results were following:

    Melbourne: Pole - Button, Victory - Button (LOL, but it was a rainy race :D)

    Sepang: Pole - Webber, Victory - Webber (in a fierce battle with Hamilton, in the beginning Ham broke Vettel's front wing :cool:, so Seb finished only 3rd with fastest car)

    Shanghai: Vettel undoubted in all sessions

    Istanbul: Pole - Alonso, Victory - Alonso. Only unrealistic result so far :wink:

    ... and in all races Big-Five - Alonso, Vettel, Webber, Button, Hamilton - fought in front of the race, so it's all ok... except too weak Seb :D:D:D As I said, it's more like 2010 in terms of drivers performances

  8. lmfao:d:d
  9. I'm having a problem too. D'ambrosio just won a race and Vettel is 20th in the points. Trulli keeps driving past me while flipping the bird...
  10. Mine was doing this too on xbox..but for some reason after the patch all is well and I cant seem to catch vettel.

    With me :-

    1/ Hamilton
    2/ Webber
    3/ Button
    4/ Alonso
    5/ Gnu UK
    6/ Vettel


    1/ Maclaren
    2/ RBR
    3/ Ferrari
    4/ Force India
    5/ Renault
    6/ Mercedes

    I am in Force India, average finish 7th, average quali 9th, average points per race 9.
  13. i´ve a problem like this either... i´m in Sepang and Karthikeyan, D´Ambrosio and Glock are always top-5, while Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton, Button are below 10th place... I´m using the original database.bin, just mod this to start career with Ferrari, and then returned to the original...
  14. Yeah, Trulli is a jerk, and every time I spin out in the rain the safety car drives by and I get mooned by the guy in the passenger seat!:tongue:

    It depends on the race distance and number of pit stops. In some races some of the top drivers have prescheduled more stops, you can see it especially on the 20% distance (like 12-14 laps), where drivers like Hamilton and Webber go to the pits in 3rd lap, than get stucked in the field (because they simply can't build a solid gap in three laps) and when they finally get through the field (like 5th or 4th place) they go to the pits again and end up well down the field again with only 2-3 laps to go. I think some patch to customzise the race distance (I miss the 30% distance from last year) could solve this problem. If you play 50-100% distance you probably don't notice it. For me it sux that there is only 20%, 50% or 100% choice, 50% is too long and boring for me and 20% is stupid because it ruins the reality. (In my case, Vettel won the first season that's ok, but Hamilton and Webber ended even behind Rosberg because of the pits they keep finishing down the field like in 1/3 of all races.)
  16. I just finished my career race in monaco (50% races) and Vettel didnt even make it to Q1!!!!
    He got eliminated during Q2.
    This should not be happening, especially after all the interviews CM did regarding the how the AI were and all.
    I dont understand how fast forwarding the sessions messes up the standing order.

    Well, there is a possibility that he was caught in traffic, had a slight crash or something like that...
  18. 2 races to go in season one and I have Vettel just ahead of Alonso in the standings. Alonso was winning loads but has fallen back recently and only managed 6th in the last race behind Rosberg. Webber has won the last 2 and Vettel is ticking over and looks more likely than Alonso to take the title. Button has been rubbish (not even ahead of Massa!)
  19. I don´t think that race distance is the problem. I always play 100% distance, and the problem continues. I hope CM launches a patch to fix it soon!!!
