Ferrari is back!!

Category: General

Taking the fight to Mercedes in Malaysia, and winning the battle, an emotional Sebastian Vettel has hailed a "special" first win with Ferrari.

Vettel stunned Mercedes, and the form books, when he claimed a sensational maiden victory for Ferrari at the Sepang circuit on Sunday.

The German took the chequered flag a comfortable eight seconds ahead of Lewis Hamilton having traded positions with the reigning Champion throughout the afternoon.

F1 2015 Officially Announced; June Release Date!

Category: General

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for!

F1 2015 has been announced by Codemasters, and we should only have to wait 2-3 months to get our hands on it!



I think we can all agree it looks quite stunning, but the real test will be when we get to play it.

So far, they’re saying all the right things, and are promising improvements in “engine and transmission, aero dynamics, fuel tank, force feedback, suspension and most notably a brand new tyre physics model”.

No news of an improvement in netcode yet, but I'm sure we'll be given more news prior to release.

In preparation for the opening race at Laguna Seca, we will be having a Pre-Season race at the same circuit, next Tuesday, March 31st.  This will take place at the usual time: Practice @ 8pm, Qualifying @ 9:20pm, Race @ 9:30pm (EDT).

To encourage other drivers to join the championship, this will be a public race, and will also be a great way to test things out before the season officially starts on April 7th.  You can still put your stamp on the schedule by selecting and sponsoring one of this season’s circuits in the Rewards Store, where you’ll also find lots of other rewards!

Next Season of F1 201x

Category: General

With the conclusion of our current F1 2014 seasons on the horizon, I wanted to let everyone know what PRL are thinking with regard to our next seasons.

The initial plan was that we would always have only one season with F1 2014 because we were promised an "early season release" for F1 2015, meaning their wouldn't be enough time for two F1 2014 seasons.

Some speculated that F1 2015 might be released in conjunction with the start of the 2015 season.  Not only is that obviously not the case, but the game hasn't even been officially announced yet.  However, Codemasters Community Managers have stated the announcement would be "end of the month", "next week", and "soon".  Unfortunately, those equate to February, last week, and….. "soon", and yes, still no announcement.  That said, we do anticipate the announcement will be any day now!

To get to the point, we still don't anticipate another full season with F1 2014, though we will wait until we have a release date to make a final decision.

In the event we don't have another full season, we are not planning to create any alternative/short official championships.  We do, however, encourage drivers to continue showing up at regular race times for some fun social races, maybe with a different format, shorter race distances, etc.  Several drivers have already created threads proposing some ideas for fun races after the seasons conclude.

We'll provide further updates once we have an F1 2015 release date.

F1 201x Go To Track Rule

Category: General

We have made a small change to Rule 2.6 which relates to how only an Organizer can select Go To Track in F1 201x.  The change is that we have removed the penalty for violating this rule.  While we don’t like having a rule without an associated penalty, the reason for this change is that it is near impossible to coordinate having up to 15 people take and provide screenshots, particularly on consoles.  The subsequent penalties awarded as a result of not providing a screenshot impact the integrity of the league more than someone selecting Go To Track early.

Organizers will remind drivers before every race not to select Go To Track, but drivers are also encouraged to figure out tire strategies before events.  In the event that someone does select Go To Track when they shouldn’t, 30 seconds is generally considered enough time to change front wings and tire strategies (keep in mind tire strategies can also be changed at any point during the race).  However, in the event there are repeat offenses, we will investigate as needed, and take action if necessary.

Let’s hope F1 2015 resolves this annoyance.
