Quote from speedykev :What I meant was getting offered a drive in the Mclaren with Button in the first season
and he's supposed to be on the highest level for seven years is bullshit.
the thing is about this game is you can qualify on expert and then race on an easier level or vice versa.
then they come on the forums saying how easy the game is, myself I think it's pathetic.

Just because you aren't fast enough to beat the AI on Legend in a bottom 3 car, doesn't mean nobody else can. The AI are far too easy, even on Legend, and winning isn't a problem, unless the AI don't pit or you don't get released from your pit.

Infact i won the championship by Suzuka with a 3rd place, when i got back to the agent screen i got told i have been offered a place with McLaren. There are quite afew tracks that the AI are quite slow at e.g. Monaco, Spa, Brazil, Abu Dhabi, Monza, Montreal.
Considering im playing it with the 360 controller Expert is quite hard to do good on, if ai had a wheel it would be significantly easier, but i guess its a good thing there is more challenge.
there's a difficulty higher than Expert? or is Legend the euro name for expert difficulty? Or do I have to unlock it?
Expert is the max difficulty level (driving aids wise)
Legendary is max AI difficulty level (which is chosen automatically when you choose expert difficulty im fairly sure).
Frustrating game, really... I cant get past 280 kph in the Lotus, maybe I made a bad choice, and they kill me with -4secs laps

What downforce setting are you useing? i use 3/4 on most tracks, just play around with the gearing.

All i do is go to the engineer section and put the set with the lowest df on then adjust it from there.
Legend AI difficulty is unlocked when you win the World championship on Expert.

Its been available all the time for me on PC and PS3.
I am getting really hacked off with the countless punctures.
Racing at Hockenheim I qualify on P1 with the Lotus, and the AI are set to the difficulty 1 lower than the legendary. Still was a tough race but 2 laps from the end..... POP! with the Prime tyres.

I can't stand Hungaroring aswell, qualify on P3 and Lewis and Mark shoot off with the option tyre *I'm on the same* but I can't even match the pace of the AI round that track, it's insane. Had to hold off most the pack untill nearing the end of the race on Primes.

Hoping for better luck with Spa and Monza, but also i've already got offers from BMW, Toro Rosso. But I'm looking towards Force India as the next step, since their car seems to be very slippery *quick in a straight line* lol.

Remember you are in a lotus and it is significantly slower in a straight line.

Force india is Quite good, its a fairly fast and stable car(compared to the Torro Rosso and Virgin i had on career mode).
Quote from Rikje :Beating your rival gives you their seat at the end of the year 99% of the time.

I wish I had known that, I would of picked Lewis as my rival and not Mark (even tho he was much closer to me points wise then Lewis.) I wanted to be in the McLaren by Season two, but I got offered a RBR seat and as it was the only front runner the offered me a seat I went for that team. I guess I'll just have to beat the living crap out of McLaren this year and then move into that car next season.

Yeah I know Lotus isn't the best for straight line speed, but getting random punctures when you can't see whats causing them is annoying. Plus the AI don't seem to have them.

How about puncture on the first corner of Monaco...would not have believed it was possible if I didn't witness it myself when the little bro was have a go.

I'm talking full race distance. Not 20% crap.
Quote from speedykev :I'm talking full race distance. Not 20% crap.

It's no different, i race 30/40% races, if i can lap faster than the AI, i can do it no matter what the race distance. Go practice some more.

I used one that gives me the maximum speed they can get me, I think it's 4/4.
Anyways, I had a puncture in T1 and I think it was because I made contact with someone.

Show us a replay of one of your laps, or tell us what kind of lap times you are putting down. The AI seem to be a lot more competitive on some tracks, as i think was mentioned in this thread, but You should definitely be able to win at Sakir. Melbourne is tougher though.
Just drove at Valencia.
First try: puncture after Turn 3. Restart.
Second try: puncture in the Outlap after the Pitstop
Third try: puncture in T3 just after the Pitstop...

:gnasher:
I never get punctures?
Only time i got a puncture was when i went wide at Catalunya and went into the sand on turn 3.

But that was practise

Jeez that must have pissed you off

30/40% race distance and you're telling me to go practice lol.
and these are the people that want a simulator. Your Pathetic

What are you talking about? I can quite happily do full race distances and win, it is just incredibly boring. Running shorter races doesn't make it any less of a simulator, you're talking absolute shit.

You're the fucking pathetic idiot that is far too slow to beat the AI, so you believe nobody can. Grow up.
