1. Run an equal performance time trial on one of these circuits and the best time you can get correlates to what AI difficulty will be evenly matched for you

  2. This is fantastic, I was going back and fourth between time trials and grand prix's to find my new perfect differcultly rating and came to 80. And when I looked up your table and the times I was setting on bahrain and australia, guess where I fall? On 80. Amazing! Wish I had this before I spent like 10 hours figuring it out the hard way lol

  3. How did you do this? Like, there's no way you checked the AI lap times at every difficulty at every track, right?

  4. This is calibrated for 2021. At least for MyTeam this is way off. My times are 88-90 on your chart but in 22 I am running 70-75. 2022 def changed MyTeam difficulty so this chart doesn’t work for it. FYI

  5. I'm almost finished with F1 2020, am I to assume that random AI hasn't been fixed yet and that it'll still go up or down depending on the race track?

  6. The player will also go 'up or down' depending on the race track, everyone has tracks they are good at and some they are bad at.

  7. This really doesn't happen, just some players are better and worse at tracks. I have been consistently around the same ai ever since I started. If you are having to lower the ai for some tracks you are simply bad at them.

  8. Thank you man. First race in Bahrain was super hard for me because I tried my F1 2021 difficulty, looking for a better Saudi race with this

  9. I had the complete opposite lol. I put it a few points below my 2021 difficulty and was way tok high up the field. Increasing it for Saudi and hope for a more realistic race

  10. Ah does this explain why I couldn’t get 19th on the qualifying sim and then actually had the 3rd fastest overall time and qualified top 10?

  11. I’ve gone from butchering the AI at 95 to just keeping up at 87. And the desperate dive bombs! They just dive in and put us both in the wall

  12. Handling definitely is taking some getting used to this year. That's not a bad thing. But I was running around 90 AI in F1 2021 now this game these times suggest I should be at 65. Lol

  13. I have only played for 2 hours total so far but dude. Holy shit. The car doesn't spin out on turns anymore when applying the throttle but something seems to be happening where it tyres "grab" the road and I inevitably spin out.

  14. I’m really confused on this, my lap times on time trial suggest I should be up in the high 80s or 90s but when it comes to races I can’t even keep up with 75 difficulty, AI seems so overpowered on straights I can’t overtake them even if we’re side by side and I have DRS and they don’t but they pull away from me with no difficulty at all

  15. DRS has barely any effect in this game currently, same with slipstream, they both need fixing really. ERS is OP if you manage it well but that’s mainly for online. AI straight line speed is broken and the AI coming out of corners is even worse really.

  16. Thanks! AI difficulty seems to be very different this year. MyTeam in 21 I usually ran high 80s low 90s… I’ve been running low 70s this time around.

  17. The issue in My Team is, that the challenges during practice are way different, then the AI performance in quali or race

  18. Argh, these times are all over the shop in a way - some tracks the real world drivers are at 80 AI pace (bahrain) and sometimes they are at 110 AI (Saudi, Australia).

  19. Just my guess, but maybe codemasters realize some tracks are easier to drive on, so the AI is stronger than real life.

  21. This is pretty fucking awesome man. Thanks! So if in my first online experience, and first dedicated F1 game run I turned 1:33's at Silverstone, indicating I'm a 64 AI handicap basically, is that ok for a beginner on wheel? Or do I just suck? I normally just play Forza Horizon w controller and ACC w wheel

  22. Apparently Portugal was supposed to be included in this year's title despite it not being on the calendar? I'd be interested to find out if that has changed because I didn't get F1 2021 in anticipation for the new regs this year and I would love to be able to try driving that beautiful track.

  23. I’m not sure about anyone else but I’m about 10 ‘clicks’ down on what I was in F1 2021, I was about 88-90 depending on the track in last years game, currently on 80 on F1 22.

  24. This is extremely useful. For those who don't get it, go on "Time Trial" and set a lap time on each circuit and cross reference it with the lap time next to the difficulty setting in the photo 👍

  25. Gonna run through the tracks and get some averages... It'll take a while but I've done Bahrain and Saudi and two things are sticking out to me right away...

  26. This one is working perfectly for me, I do 5 laps in time trial, use an average calculator for all those times then check the nearest times on the sheet Thanks so much for this, the ai are so inconsistent

  28. Looking at this I might need 0 AI 🤣🤣 First F1 game and my god I can never catch the AI anywhere. Started on 70 now on 50 and it's still just as difficult

  29. Dose this work for my team mode I want to be fighting at the back where I should be because my car is worst on the grid?

  30. It definitely gives you a good basis. One thing I have noticed for myself though is if you go into time trial and just do a hand full of laps and use the best time you will get some difficulty number.

  31. If only they would make the AI consistent across all tracks. It is so annoying having to do this for each track every year.

  32. What if I tell you that the AI is quite consistent but you are not! Everybody has good tracks and bad tracks just like in real life. Nothing wrong beating the AI at one track and getting beaten at another.

  33. Jesus my guy. Whoever did this really helped a lot but also must have spent so much time on this since release.

  34. The probably for me is I can throw a nice lap down in time trial equal performance cars…then I hop in my shit box on My Team and ooooof.

  35. I'm somewhere between 90-100, that actually makes me feel crappy, but at the same time I only played for like 1 hour so far on my wheel

  36. This is fucking amazing. Just getting into F1 and the games and I played a week in f1 2021 on 55, but 55 seemed to CRUSH me in this game. Thank you for sharing!

  37. No one pointing out that it’s F1 22 and not 2022? Just kidding, this is an insane amount of effort you’ve done. Thanks for your service!

  38. From my testing this seems to be maybe couple tenths off.. I did my own test going into championship and doing short quali, and 100 AI pole times are around 2-3tenths slower than what you have got here?

  39. How the heck do you get into turn one at the start of the race. And not brake too late to plow into the car in front of you. Or brake to hard so the car behind you slams into you!!

  42. Thanks for this. I always forget to adjust the AI difficulty level. I was in the Alpha Tauri car and was out lapping Verstappen.

  43. I feel like I had to bump down the AI in this game. Normally I keep it at about 86, but in this game if I put it over 76 I get smoked..

  44. Noticed this while doing my F2 race in my driver career. Was like 2 seconds off of the pace in quali and then went from 22 to 7th in the race. Something is just super off this year.

  45. Thats because you are looking at race pace, this chart is quali pace, i.e go to time trial, see your average pace there then use that as the AI point

  46. Just got the game, did a TT run, my lap corresponds to 96 which seems about right considering I’m not as fast as in 2021 yet

  47. I think that ended up being for casual mode. It was meant more for beginners that would spin around and the AI sort of slows so they can catch back up.

  48. So thankfull for this, after struggling in MyTeam with the Garbo2000, I easily put down 85 difficulty times in the time trials. So I’m not as bad as I thought

  49. Wow reading everyone's AI settings makes me realize how laughably bad I am. Shout out to my sub-50 brethren!

  50. The last F1 game I had was 2020. I remember you could change difficulty settings in the loading screen and if you got it wrong you could quit and rejoin and adjust the difficulty accordingly in the loading screen, however in this game, unless I’m missing something, if you pick a difficulty and it’s wrong you have to live with it as there’s no way of changing it. Very weird thing to remove from the game. Made it far more forgiving and you wouldn’t have to use this chart or go to hot laps to test it. Just see the AIs speed, if they are too quick or slow, leave and join back and change it.

  51. This. I qualified P7 in Miami, not a fluke, but there was no chance at all of me finishing anywhere but P22 within the first five laps of a 25% race. Got so frustrated I just retired and deleted that save.

  52. Well, not sure if they patched AI or something. But in the first races I set 80 and could quali and race perfectly, and now in azerbaijan I have 80, and AI just set 1.40.2 in Q1.

  53. Can‘t confirm your 1:40.2, although the sheet might be 5 AI ticks off here and there. Azerbaijan is one sample where the sheet said 1:43.0, but the AI was 1:42.4.

  54. I’m a casual player, I use a controller just like to play to relieve stress after a long day. This chart sure doesn’t seem to equal the times to AI difficulty. I’m only a level 70 guy and the AI on that level is driving 1:32.035. Needless to say I’m not keeping up in my updated My Team Car. Dropped it to level 60 and the AI is doing the same thing 1:32.184 Am I doing something wrong?
