    I dont want to see massive changes as a lot of things they had spot on in 2016. Id just like to see more detail in the races,AI incidents etc.

    One thing they do need to sort out is the objectives in career - i won the 3rd season in the Manor,then moved to Force India,had some decent results and was in the title race - but got sacked after Baku!!

    It ruined my career and was totally unrealistic - my only available choice was to drive for bottom team Sauber - as the reigning chanpion.

    Plus,after season 4 McLaren were fully developed again and wouldve been unbeatable in the following seasons.

    I liked the aspect of the team development but it just needs to be tweaked.

    I agree. When you get to your max, that is your max forever. That really turned me off career. I wanted to take Manor to the top then do it again with the smallest team again and again and again.

    I think give Codies credit for implementing the whole progression thing,it did work in some aspects,i enjoyed the practice pace tasks - but they just need to refine it more now. I agree if you keep winning with someone like Manor then your level should keep rising and not reach a 'max' - so you could overtake Mercedes and other teams can aswell.

    In my career i did like the fact that in seasons 2 & 3 Ferrari and Red Bull were nowhere,they just developed very slowly - it gave teams such as Force India & McLaren places in the top 5 frequently. Its just that when Mercedes got near their max they were dominant - but thats like real life atm hehe!

    In fact ive just started a new career in the Torro,see how the teams develop this time.

    Not April Fools.

    Just give us a car/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11 from the 2007/08 seasons. Those haven't appeared in a game officially at all. (Bar the F1.07 in rFactor)

    I wasn't that interested in 2017 since I don't really like games with such limited car lists such as F1 but if they're going to include historic cars like in 2013 (my most played F1 game solely because of the 80's F1 cars) then I am definitely getting this on release.

    Edit: Slightly annoyed the MP4/4 is a preorder bonus but at least they'll let us buy it separately after release.

    Would be truly awesome if we got the support series as well. Would be absolutely epic if we ever got an F1 game with every support series that had you start in Formula 3 or even Formula Ford/Renault before progressing up to F1 and starting out with a team based on your earlier performances.

    I think they'd just leave it to the F1 Support races meaning the F2/GP3 series.

    Pretty much what I thought. Maybe it's an audition to Liberty to show what they can do with a freer license?

    Sweet. Hopefully this time classic cars will be here to stay from year to year.

    When the say "deeper career mode", I hope that means they've also beefed up the car development system, and it doesn't just refer to putting classic content invitationals into it.

    Could be wrong but that wording suggests to me there won't be any new tracks, just older versions of existing-calendar tracks to fit in with the classic content. If so then Silverstone would be an obvious one, but not sure what the other 3 would be. Austria, Canada, Hungary?

    All of the yes.

    Just hope they don't mess up the classic f1 car sounds like 2013, but given codies' recent efforts I'd consider it unlikely

    An updated SF70H (and someone else to manage VSC that is not Charlie Whithing) it's all I need, seriously.

    Yes. And no.

    To a certain degree I understand the attitude — constantly being berated over a product would eventually result in any one who takes pride in what they do to become defensive, perhaps overly so.

    Here's where the 'Yes' comes in: understanding why the product was critiqued as it were and then seeing the way he responds to normal users just offering critiques because they genuinely appreciate the game, but are pointing out issues that have persisted since the first game under their direction.

    It isn't a case of 'he should never talk to customers that way' because given the right circumstances I think that's absolutely ridiculous, however, given the way he did it results in what you're seeing now:

    "Stephen Hood is gone."
    "So? That's a great thing!"

    Those Tweet tweats were an highlights video and digital magazine, don't think F2 will make it into the game this year. Can see it coming soon though with Liberty in charge and the FIA aiming to streamline the feeder series.
