F1 2017 Gets Polishing Patch 1.6

By Kelly Packard, 5 days ago
Developer Codemasters is adding the finishing touches to F1 2017. The simulation racer launched on August 25th, and our reviewer Andrew already lavished it with praise, rating it 4.5 out of 5 stars. A new patch can only improve on the current version, with a short list of fixes taking aim at crashes, spawn problems, vibration issues and more.

  • McLaren Engine upgrades are now correctly applied
  • Players losing vibration / force feedback in multiplayer
  • Blue flags at the start of some race
  • Cars spawning on top of each other at the start of a race
  • Simulated lap times being too fast compared to actual race times
  • Grid penalties for changing parts now apply correctly when reforming the grid after a formation lap
  • AI will no longer post single sector times as lap times at Monaco
  • Stats for Public Multiplayer now work correctly (in order to fully implement and correct this, stats and ranks will be reset)
  • Added Polish subtitles
  • AI drivers will suffer reliability issues in Championships mode
  • Various crash fixes
Patch 1.6 is live now for all versions of F1 2017.
