Dont get me wrong, I dont mind a little challenge now and again but Im not a hardcore F1 fan, I just enjoy pretending to be world champion and enjoy the atmosphere and feel and sound of the game, always have...going way back to Geoff Crammonds original Grand Prix game. I started the first season on Easy mode, kept fuel and tyre sim on for extra realism as can get better times when I control the fuel usage etc. All was going great, getting pole in Quali's and first in races, just the odd second and third, but as soon as I get to Spa, using same setup and racing tachnique I couldnt qualify any higher than 15th and ended up 19th in race, same in Monza, managed to get 7th in Quali and struggling to keep the aggressive AI at bay to achieve my target of 4th....hardly easy mode. Any idea why the AI has suddenly become so aggressive in easy mode when in fact I should be getting really good qualis and finishes, its so bloomin frustrating. If this is what easy mode is like Id hate to try Pro or Elite or whatever they call it. Never had problems in 2010, always got good wins, this has just become a joke.
