Weird. If I'm not mistaken, S and M are the mandatory tyres for Austin, as long as you had used one of them for one entire lap you were on the clear.
Most likely this was a glitch.
"Unless wet or intermediate tyres are used during the race, all drivers must use at least two different specifications of dry-weather tyres in the race, at least one of which must be one of the two mandatory sets nominated by Pirelli, though the teams are free to decide which one. " That's the rule. So it has to be a glitch, unless you had participated in Q3 and then used a different set than the one you used in your fastest lap for Q2, but I think it's impossible to do that change.
i did the race at Austin in career mode today.
I was able to start the race on the Soft Tyres since I could make it through Q2 with them.
In the race i switched to the Super Soft but got disqualified going into the last lap for "not using the required tyres".
I'm wondering what I've done wrong, especially because the AI did the exact same strategy just reversed, starting on Super Soft and switching to Soft.
Not PS4 but I play on Xbox One with a controller and. It is also very tough. I find that youy wear your tyres more because you can't adjust your turning too easily - it's either full or nothing. Can't justify the price of a wheel though to make it easier.
F1 2016 - Really hard to play with controller! (PS4)
Must to optimize it!
Eg. I use many time, but still can't find the great car setup (Mercedes) in Monaco!
It's so difficult!
By the way, have anyone also play with controller (PS4)?
I really want to know how to setup (Mercedes) in Monaco.
