Rules

We're trying to have a fair and fun competition - which is why there shouldn't be more rules than the ones given by the game. Here are some to watch out for:

The Game & Communication

For Season 7 we're using F1 22. If you don't have the game, let Janes know. Before and after the race we meet up on Discord.

Race Settings

As of now the same settings from last Season apply. You can have a look at those settings here.

×
  • AI Driver Level: 60
  • Category: Multiplayer Car
  • Maximum Players: max (in our case with 8 players, 12)
  • Practise Length: None
  • Qualifying: Short (18 min)
  • Race Distance: 50%
  • Quick Weather: Clear
  • Session Start Time: Random
  • Parc Fermé Rules: Off
  • Collisions: On
  • Vehicle Damage: Full
  • Ghosting: Off
  • Car Setup: Full
  • Safety Car: On
  • Rules and Flags: On
  • Corner Cutting Stringency: Regular
  • Formation Lap: On
  • Race Starts: Manual
  • Tyre Temperature: Surface & Carcass (Simulation)

Don't ignore the flags.

Flags exist for a reason. Reduce your speed when you see a yellow flag and don't overtake. Let the car behind you overtake you when you see a blue flag. Don't be a dick and block cars when they are lapping you or setting up a qualification time.

Don't try to cut every corner.

Cutting corners to a certain degree is fine, but you shouldn't overdo it. You'll get several warnings before you get a time penalty for cutting corners. Be careful when the conditions aren't perfect; in case you lose control of your car and cut a corner, you might be penalised even though you didn't intent to cut.

Be respectful to your other (human) drivers.

We all want to finish all races. Don't try to actively kill the other participants. Obviously you are allowed to defend your position,but you shouldn't push the other driver off the track.

Careful, the AI is crazy.

The AI in this game is overly aggressive. Don't try to start a fight with them, most of the time they will win. Keep in mind that your position relative to the other participants matters. If you feel like the AI is too aggressive, let them pass. Maybe you'll benefit more if they are less than a second in front of you.

Record your gameplay.

If you are involved in an incident but you feel like it wasn't your fault, it might help to have a recording of some sorts (e.g. Shadowplay). We will always discuss incidents afterwards but a record would help in a "he said/she said" situation.

Points

The point system is being recalculated.

Acoustic

Alasdair

When Alasdair is bored of physics and shooting rockets full of innocent people into space, he moves to racing - and he excels at that. Without any problem he won three seasons until he got beaten in a game of "rock paper scissors".

  • Acoustic (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 15 (Fastest Laps: 4)
Steam

Szabo

A fellow OG of this competition, Szabo has been a balanced driver all around, sometimes even surprising himself (and his team member) with a win. That is of course if he arrives on time.

  • Acoustic (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 4 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam
Force India 2.0

Janes

All Janes wanted to do was challenge Alasdair to an F1 race. Six seasons later he still hasn't won a single season against him. At this point, Janes broke down his issues to two fundamental problems: he has to be more consistent with his laps and there might a small chance that Alasdair is cheating.

  • Force India 2.0 (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 12 (Fastest Laps: 1)
Steam

Juan

Juan is currently the youngest driver to ever win a championship and the only champion by "rock paper scissors". Even though he is young, he dreams of the old days and the dominance of BMW in long forgotten F1 seasons.

  • Force India 2.0 (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 5 (Fastest Laps: 2)
Steam
Foreign Force

Nabil

Nothing seems to stop Nabil: he won Season 5 and 6 with little resistance and he might be on his path to be the second driver to win his third championships. No ones seems to be able to achieve the same race pace and consistency as he does. Who is going to stop him now?

  • Foreign Force 2.0 (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 10 (Fastest Laps: 5)
Steam

Aatha

Aatha has established himself as a fundamental part of "Foreign Force". His ability to work together flawlessy with Nabil has certainly helped the latter keep his dominance and also keep their team in the lead. But he does not only shine as a team member but also a great, consistent driver.

  • Foreign Force 2.0 (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 1 (Fastest Laps: 1)
Steam
Mighty Mambas

Koray

A fierce midfielder in the grid, Koray has been bringing home good points for his team. While he was known in Season 5 to set some exceptional fast laps, it hasn't been the same for him in Season 6. One might hope for the return of "Mr. Fastest Lap".

  • Foreign Force (Season 5)
  • Mighty Mambas (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 2)
Steam

Marcelo

With a high level of racing skill and exceptional teamwork, Marcelo forms a formidable partnership with his teammate Koray. Although victories and fastest laps have eluded him, Marcelo consistently delivers solid results, showcasing his consistency and reliability on the race track.

  • Mighty Mambas (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam
Flatüt

Dario

Dario, a very skilled and consistent race driver, is known for his high consistency. With exceptional abilities behind the wheel, he remains a formidable force in motorsports, poised for a well-deserved victory on the race track and possibly the only person to challenge the current champion.

  • Flatüt (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 3)
Steam

Joël

Joël, a dedicated race driver, consistently finishes in the midfield without ever securing a race victory. While he hasn't challenged for the podium, Joël's true strength lies in being a valuable and supportive teammate, contributing to the overall success of the team.

  • Flatüt (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 1)
Steam
Raviolas

Nicolas

A wildcard to this competition. There is no denying that any race with Nicolas is an intense one. He fights for his positions and doesn't back down, no matter what the cost. Humans fear overtaking him, AI choose to remove themselves from the race. Is there anything that can stop this force of nature?

  • Broke (Season 5)
  • Raviolas (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam

Ravi

The second but equally feared part of "Raviolas", Ravi brings a lot of variety and craziness into each race. While he has only added two points to this team's score, one should not underestimate his commitment to fight for his position.

  • Raviolas (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam
Los Lölec

Nici

As Season 7's newest rookie, Nici shows great potential as a driver and proves his place by his determination to improve as much as possible - a solid midfielder with his first race win just waiting around the corner.

  • Los Lölec (Season 7 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam

Nassim

Some info about Nassim.

  • Nici/Nassim TBA (Season 7 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam
Scuderia Sbinalla

Michel

Some info about Michel.

  • Scuderia Sbinalla (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam

Simon

Some info about Simon.

  • Scuderia Sbinalla (Season 6 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam
Honorable Mentions

Valerii

Hailing from Mother Russia Yuuta channels the spirit of Daniil Kvyat when it comes to racing in F1. As a fierce critic of F1 in general, one could ask themselves, what he is doing in this competition. To your surprise, he might be asking himself the same question.

  • Broke (Season 5 - present)
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam

Brian

Brian loves Heart of Iron 4. He also participated in a few races. Why? I don't recall.

  • No team affiliation
  • Race Wins: 0 (Fastest Laps: 0)
Steam
