If you have a headset with a microphone, you can use voice commands to get information or make changes, by speaking into the mic with certain key phrases. The available voice commands are:
By using these phrases, you’ll be able to get the requested information or make the indicated choices without needing to go into any menus. Of course, it is possible to do all of these things without voice commands, as well.
In career mode, you have a “flashback” option that lets you replay part of the race and try again. This will let you undo a mistake if necessary, without needing to repeat everything.
There are a number of assists available. Use these to help you with your driving, especially if you’re new to this sort of game or just need some time to get used to it.
Assists available in this game are a braking assist that helps you brake when necessary, traction control that helps with corners and acceleration, a dynamic racing line that helps you while racing behind other cars, an automatic gearbox option, a pit assist that helps in the pit lane and a pit release assist that helps while leaving, and an automatic ERS option.
These assists also have different levels available, so you can gradually lower and remove assists as you become more comfortable with racing, taking on more and more of the driving experience yourself. Having assists active will slow you down, but it’s excellent when you’re starting out.
When you start the race, you need to avoid wheelspin. This means, even though you want to get a fast start, it can be beneficial to start out a little slower instead of going at full power. Your controller or wheel will vibrate when you’re revving at the ideal throttle for the start, which is around 11,000 revs.
Your fuel management and ERS management are critical parts of racing and being able to go fast. Moderate and keep an eye on your ERS adjustments to make sure you don’t overheat your engine or lose power by using too much high fuel. Use the Overtake setting strategically and then lower it again.
Corners are a tricky part of racing and can make or break a race. You want to aim for smooth cornering by driving into corners at a slower speed and then leaving them at a faster speed.
There are a lot of little customization details that go into your race, so experiment with different setups and options until you find what works best from you. You can also check out the video below for additional tips on how to go fast.
To buy new skins, gear, and other items, you’ll need to earn credits. Credits are earned in three main ways.
First, you’ll get a weekly bonus sent to you in-game based on your Safety Rating. The higher your Safety Rating is, the bigger a bonus you’ll get.
Second, you’ll be rewarded with credits for completing Weekly Events. Each week, there will be a Grand Prix, Classic Grand Prix, or Featured Event for players to participate in, and once the week is done, you’ll receive credits based on your spot in the leaderboards.
Finally, participating in Ranked online matches and completing the available objectives, which are updated each week, will also reward you with credits.
