On F1 2017 my mate and I are on our 5th or 6th personal championship. Might be 7th. We are fairly even on Championship wins and play at 67 AI. Monaco is one of the few tracks we just can't match the AI for, mainly to be so fast consistently. My main tactic is to Riccardo (steal pole, damage car, go slow and stay first somehow).

We should probably raise the AI bar again soon.

You should always have ai at full or close to it on racing games, it's the best way to force you to get quicker.

Alonso is apparently ready to quit F1 according to Martin Brundle.

I imagine his patience is wearing a little thin. Even at Monaco, McLaren 'best chassis' Renault still didn't win while a Renault powered Red Bull did.....

Meanwhile he won on his first race in the WEC, granted there isnt any real competitors in the LMP1 class but I imagine that winning feeling kind of overrides that fact for him, he's also desperate for that triple crown and he'd probably happily take a move to indycar for a few seasons if it meant he won the Indy 500. Theres a good chance he'll win Le Mans this year meaning he'll have 2/3 of the triple crown.

I agree since Indy last year he has seen life out of F1 where its more competitive better racing etc. The fact the win he got in WEC this year is his first since 2013. Could potentially win Le Mans if reliability is on his side. He will be lucky to get another win in F1 at all in the next few years he imo is better going off and doing Sports cars and Indycar.

No real competitors in LMP1. Okay then.

A good chance in a Toyota as well? I suppose they can't break down during the race forever.

He could even win the WEC championship if everything goes well, alongside a full season in F1 that would equal a mighty effort on his behalf.

Well if the Toyotas actually make it to the end of the 24 hours of Le Mans I fully expect them to occupy the top 2 steps, so the other Toyota would provide good competition for the win obviously. While the privateer LMP1 teams are decent they don't seem to have the budget to challenge the manufacturer backed teams and now Audi and Porsche have left over the last few years all things being well I would say Toyota don't have any real competitors for the win? Unless the privateers have taken a massive step forward this season that is, I never looked at the in depth result for the 6 hours of Spa, just saw that Alonso had won.

Oh no you are completely right about the privateer LMP1 cars. They just don't have the budget to compete and the drivers are quite up to par compared to the guys over at Toyota. Le Mans will be interesting as always. Last year I really thought Toyota would finally get that win but they really do seem cursed.

"Formula 1 track designer Hermann Tilke says the championship's push to add more grands prix on city circuits opens the door for more exciting track layouts in the future."

"We are not building [permanent] tracks only for the high professional drivers, we are also building tracks for all kind of drivers,"

"This means amateur drivers, it means a driver who is 60 years old and wishes to drive some kind of racing car or high-performance car. All these people have to be safe [on permanent tracks], it is not only F1."

"But as you see in Baku - that is a track built only for professional drivers. You could never have old drivers or young drivers on this track, and that makes a difference."

Tilke needs a jolly good slapping for some of his designs over the years.

i agree


Formula 1 is considering “fundamental” changes to the format of grand prix weekends from 2021 which could include shorter races, a new qualifying system and less practice time. F1 must be open to change in response to dwindling audiences, said Nielsen.

The changes to the sport since 2003 are insane at how much year after year its been tinkered with regarding rules regulations etc. Its up there with Nascar levels of countless changes to appeal to the casual fan

Sure I saw that they want to bring 18 inch tyre's in at some point as well. Not liking the sound of weekend format changes though, the weekend format they currently have is one thing that definitely doesn't need changing in my opinion.

They want to appeal to the general gooseberry fool kicker and that just giant what F1 is, it is meant to be technical and a bit nerdy because it is complicated, it's not like football where you kick a ball in a net and the idiot masses piss themselves.
