1) Best Graphics Settings for F1 2019

You can skip this step if you don’t want to change graphics settings. These High Performance graphics settings are for PCs which close to the minimum system requirements.

If you have a good PC, you can increase the settings slightly.

Go to in-game graphics options and make sure the settings are as follows.

GAME OPTIONS > Settings > Graphics Options > Video Mode

Confirm Changes and Exit the game.

If you encounter screen tearing problem during the gameplay, you should enable the VSync. If you have a monitor with G-SYNC or FreeSync, you can activate them instead of Vsync.

In the meantime, you can try running the F1 2019 with DirectX 11 instead of DirectX 12. It can improve performance. DirectX 11 was better when I tested it.

  • Thank you for the detailed steps.

    I followed the instructions but unfortunately the game is not working at all now.

    I have a Windows Surface pro with 2GB Intel HD Graphics 520 and an 8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M.

    The problem is that when i open the game, it only uses the Intel Card and 0% of the NVIDIA, i verified this in the Task Manager.

    All drivers and software are up to date.

    I am struggling to find a solution.

    • The Nvidia control panel might be bugged.

      • Download the latest Nvidia driver https://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx
      • Download the DDU to completely remove old drivers.
      • Run the 7z file and extract it to a folder on the desktop.
      • Select device type. By the way, before doing this, recommended that reboot the Windows in safe mode.
      • Select “Clean and restart”
      • After that, install the driver and restart the PC.
