Worst multiplayer of all the F1 Games?

Is it just me or is the multiplayer on this one much worse than 2011?

I play Sprint mode as no one seems to play the other modes and it is killing me. I race clean and fair yet for example I just played Singapore. I was second off the line and went into the first corner fine, someone clips me and I go spinning round. THEN it gives me a 10 second penalty for causing a collision! Then you can be racing fine and someone spins. The computer on this one seems to make the player ghost until the very last second before you're about to make contact, then switches to normal mode, causing you to hit them (and then you usually get a penalty for a collision).

So on the Singapore race I just did I was in the lead and some guy hung back to take me out, He just stopped dead in the track and didnt move. I got another penalty.

The game is killing me. Codemasters have spent all their dev time on making the game look pretty but they've implemented things to try and make the game fairer online but just made it 10x worse for those that want to play properly.

Worst thing about multiplayer is that they removed the option to turn collisions off in custom lobbies, now we have no way to get rid of rammers.

Sorry for the bump of this, but just been playing this online (first time I've played online on this game, only had the game a week). I've suffered similar problems to the opening poster.

Had a race in Hungary, made a sluggish start, and the majority of the 12 drivers crashed on bend 1. Due to being a bit behind, I went tight up the inside on bend 1, and got clipped by a car trying to get out the pile up...and somehow got a 10 second penalty! Similar happened in the next race in the US. Yet, when leading a race earlier today, some berk intentionally spun me on a corner while I was leading and...surprise surprise, he didn't get a penalty for it!

Quite annoying, shall be glad when I've got the "15 & 30 Online Races" achievements done, so I can avoid playing Online again!

Completly agree!!!

The only way to get serious about this game on online matches is to get a private game with people you know, otherwise you´re just waiting to get hit

I also agree with this!
And normal online racers are so laggy and frustrating!

HERE HERE-I love starting last on the grid- you can just drive tight to apex then away whilst every one else is in trap/wall.
I played last night against 16 others@ spa- i was up to 3rd by el-rouge. Also what with people driving slow/ hitting brakes on all of a sudden! I got DSQ from valencia as some idiot just threw on his anchors and i smashed into him- no time to react.

I try and be fair as can be- If i accidently nudge someone ill slow down to give the place back- why cant everyone race like this.
Send me a friend request if i can join you for online races- cheers
