Is it possible for me to join a league still?
Keep an eye on the sign up threads, they will reopen once the leagues are underway. You will still be required to apply by completing the TT and Speedtests and will get reserve status initially.

Soo, with the new patch released today, is there a chance to maybe turn the Formation Lap and SC back on in the near future?

I think admins or other staff members are going to do some testing or something. Fisi has also said that it'd be good if we tested this ourselves in social races.

After scanning the Patch notes only the below has been patched in terms of SC and Formation lap,

As @RigorousTiger has stated Fisi has asked if we can test the SC and formation laps in the socials we arrange during the week, but the league races wont be changed until the admins are happy it wont have negative affects or cause issues in the league races.

- Fixed issue where players could be disqualified at the end of a race if they were disqualified during the formation lap.

- AI will now pit under the SC for optimal strategy instead of waiting for the SC to go in.

- Player no longer told to catch SC when leading the race and already behind the SC.

- Fixed an issue where the AI attempts to overtake a player with FW damage under SC conditions and then receive no penalties.

- Increased the likelihood of SC & VSC periods occurring in online championships.

Hello guys.

I just made an account for AOR and I'm looking to join any of the main F1 PC Leagues. When will I be able to sign up? I read in the sign up thread that it might become possible to join late to the recently started season around this time, but the sign up thread is still closed for comments. Any info about when I might be able to join, or any tips on what I can do to improve my chances?

You will need to do the TT and hopefully sign ups will be reopened after the break.

Depending on where vacancies open up at your pace will determine when you can be placed.

Social races are open to join, there we can get an idea of your connection and driving style.

Good luck.

Ok. Thanks for the quick reply!

What break are you talking about and when will that be?

I will start doing my TT work on the tracks mentioned in the sign up thread as soon as possible.

The social races sounds fun as well. I need to educate myself on what they are and how they work :)

So, for now, the best thing I can do to get into the league is to keep an eye on when the sign up thread will reopen and do TT and social races in the meantime?

Looking forward racing with you guys! I just started playing again after some years away from the F1 games, so I have some catching up to do, but Im passionated about being back :D

Take a look at the Patch Notes of 1.10: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/59264/patch-1-10-notes-and-release-information
This should theoretically allow us to turn at least the Safety Car on again. Of course this has to be tested beforehand.
  • Safety Car - Fixed the falling too far back system so it will no longer give penalties incorrectly.
  • Safety Car - Lapped cars will no longer be able to overtake cars that have lapped them.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the delta to stop working during a virtual safety car period.

I have a quick question, don't know if this is the right place for it but I will ask it. Does anybody out there in F1 land use a thrustmaster T300 base with fanatec clubsport V3 pedals? Does F1 2017 support this combo on PC? Thanks in advance
