    Hi mate,

    Can you elaborate slightly?

    What is the exact problem, when does it occur? PC I guess - from your link?

    Workarounds should not be required at this stage of the game, the autosave bug was meant to have been fixed in Patch 2. The current state of the game is Patch 12.

    I would certainly check what game version you are running, by opening the game_version.txt file in the location below, and or the game .exe file. If you do not have what is stated below, then you are not fully patched.

    YourSteamInstallDrive:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\f1 2012

    Current game F1_2012.exe version =
    game_version.txt = Master Universal.835376 08/11/2012 10:02

    You can also ensure that you are fully patched and that no game files are corrupted, missing, or broken in some way, by verifying your game files via Steam.

    Run Steam > Right Click on F1 2012 > Select Properties > Select the 'Local Files tab' > Select 'Verify integrity of game cache'.

    If there are any problems with any of your files then they will be automatically downloaded for you.
