Hey guys,

Just to update you on the newest patch v1.7. You can find the notes below:

  • Added the Master difficulty option when starting a new Career and Championship Season.
  • Fixed a bug that could give players who rejoin a multiplayer session the wrong tyres.
  • All cars now use the same gearbox when playing with Equal Performance.
  • Nvidia Scalable Link Interface (SLI) performance improvements.
  • Fixed a number of crash bugs.

Notes on the SLI speed improvements.

We have been in discussion with Nvidia for a while regarding a shadow corruption bug occasionally seen when running F1 2016 on a PC with SLI. Some of our performance improvements may have made this issue more frequent for a few of you, but we felt it was better to release them and give you a choice about how you want to run the game.

If you do experience this problem, we have several workarounds for you.

1. Have the full speed increase, but live with the potential of occasional shadow corruption.
2. If you do see the issue you can limit your FPS to reduce its frequency and potentially prevent the problem altogether.
3. If neither of these solve the problem, turn off SLI to stop the issue from occurring.
