F1 2021 no ffb – Force feedback or FFB not working for you in F1 2021? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Here is a guide that might fix your problem.

F1 2021 – Force Feedback not working on controller – How to fix it

F1 2021 is finally available on all major platforms, and it looks like it’s doing pretty well as of now. The number of players playing the game is not crazy at all. But again, it is common knowledge that the audience base for games like F1 2021 is quite limited. People, who like them, play them a lot. And people who don’t tend to skip these releases. But whoever likes racing games, like F1, sure. In fact, F1 2020 was quite successful.

F1 2021’s PC release has been smooth so far, except for a few glitches and issues that occasionally crop up. In this article, we take a look at the no force feedback or “no ffb” error in F1 2021.

It seems that the Force Feedback function does not work on many gamers controllers and wheels . It’s quite funny, because I remember that FFB performed absolutely well in F1 2020, when it came out. Check out this post on Codemasters forums from a Thrustmaster T500 RS user:

T500 RS FFB does not work at all in the game. It works fine in F1 2020. I have tried different settings in the game and the wheel control panel.

Now the question is, can this problem be fixed?

How to fix

For starters, there is bad news for Thrustmaster T500 users trying to play the game on PS5. If you are using a Thrustmaster T500, I am sorry to say that the base T500 is not compatible with PS5 games. You can use the T500 on PS5, but only with PS4 games. Only these bases from Thrustmaster are compatible with PS5 games: T-GT / T300 / T150 / T80. For more information on this topic, you can go to this link or this link [Thrustmaster Force Feedback Issue Main Topic] . There is an entire thread dedicated to Thrustmaster compatibility.

Well, this is what you should do first. Go to this link and see if your controller or wheel is listed or not. It is a list of compatible wheels and controllers that the developers wrote down.

Let me clarify one thing, there are hundreds of wheels and controllers on the market. So it is impossible for me to know about a specific problem, unique only to its controller. Still, there are some basic steps you can take to solve your problem.

If you see your controller listed, this is what to do next:

  • Remove all other drivers connected to your PC. Sometimes multiple controllers can cause some games to malfunction.
  • Make sure you have the latest drivers and firmware on your wheelbases
  • Perform system reboots between uninstalling the old driver and installing the new driver [mentioned in the supported drivers thread]
  • If these don’t fix the problem, please post a full bug report with all the requested information. This Linkwill show you how.

Finally, if you are a Logitech G29 or Logitech G920 user. The settings mentioned in this post should help you.
