    Try quick race and put yourself at the back of the grid, maybe 85% AI. Passing the first half of the field won't be too hard, but the challenge gets tougher and you often end up faster than the guy behind you, but matched to the tenth by the guy in front and it's hard to close the gap.
    Perhaps give it a try and see how you get on.
    I agree with this, I've always started from the back and worked my way up quite quickly in Formula A to winning over 15 laps with default tune. But now at 85% it's touch and go, just one my first race at that level having to tune the car a litte, which I detest doing because it doesn't interest me, passing off the last bend. SO plenty of challenge like that. Can't see the point of qualifying and running from the front, that's what makes F1 so boring now anyway

    The only issue is the ones at the back tend to be more psychotic with their behaviour than the leaders, so ramming, flying across chicanes and accelerating flat out on gravel all become irritations in the AI!

    Yeah mostly in career mode especially at the beginning the AI are too easy and are being worked on... the only real way of getting good races is to race in QRW with AI at 80- 85%

    I reckon from back to front over 15 laps with 85% AI is a pretty tough challenge. Make one mistake and you‘ve had it, and the number of times I‘ve been fighting for the lead on the last lap, planning my move three or four corners ahead, it‘s fantastic and gets the nerves jingling. I always drive clean and fair though as much as I am able, not pushing my way through like you have to in Gran Turismo but setting up the pass, backing off and giving them space if it‘s not on etc.
    Played like this, there is nothing to touch this game, it‘s so rewarding, and the replays look amazing, just like watching telly.

    Yep, I got full adrenalin rush having timed my overtake to the last bend and knowing that I might do it genuinely the most excitement and good feeling I've ever had from any computer game, felt very similar to some real world personal sporting achievements, and surpassed most of them. Not sure I'll ever be able to master 100$ front to back as I've had to make the car less stable to get the speed and spinning, etc. is so much easier now I can't push much harder in racing. Completely different to hot lapping or leading from pole. Very different experience.

    Will give this a go then

    I've def noticed if I start from pole and get a couple of sec lead then I can stay ahead whereas if I let them get within half a sec they normally fight with me

    Going to have to go to 90% I think, just won consecutive 15 lap, 30 field, at Monza in the Formula A and Le Mans with the Oreca. But then they are the only tracks/cars I can drive properly as I've done over 2000 miles at Monza now, lol, and 4000+ at Le mans. Now that's dedication

    I'd have liked to only be able to win on 100% after having to really fine tune car setups
    And my driving at a track

    For example forumla c career mode 100% race distance I've won every race so far including Brno which I never raced until practice.
