UPDATE: Just a quick update on yesterday’s correction to our patch notes for 1.07.

We are currently working towards enabling this in a completed state for an upcoming patch. Thanks to Nvidia for helping us in tracking down this issue.

Hi everyone!

In this patch, the performance order of the teams has been rebalanced to better replicate the F1 Season and how it has evolved since preseason testing.

This update affects both the car handling of your car and the performance of the AI cars. Individual team handling traits have been tailored to be more representative of their real-life counterparts, with updated aerodynamics achieving a performance improvement of between 1 – 1.5 seconds per lap, mainly in higher cornering speed, and vehicle performance has been updated to give a more accurate assessment of each car’s strengths and weaknesses. The other update that you’ve been asking us a lot about is F2 in multiplayer, this will be available in Unranked Multiplayer and LAN game in patch 1.05.

 
Here's the notes for this patch:
  • 2019 season performance updates
  • F2 is now available in Unranked Multiplayer and LAN
  • AI performance has been improved in wet weather for both F1 and F2 vehicle classes
  • Improvements to AI blocking behaviour
  • In photo mode changing shutter speed will no longer make the screen go black
  • Fanatec wheels will no longer send strong force feedback turning the wheel to the right on race starts
  • Rain / ERS charging lights now work on PS4 Pro
  • First Ten Down (Complete 10 races online) achievement will now unlock correctly
  • Stopped graphical glitches occurring and getting more frequent during long play sessions
 


Post patch 1.05, we are working through a number of updates which are a little further off, but these should all be made available over the next couple of months:
 
 
Paul Ricard Pit Lane Update – July/August

Visual Car Updates – August. You will be delighted to hear that we will be adding the Ferrari 90 Anniversary logo onto the engine cover as part of this update!

F2 2019 Season – September

“Damn your love!” shout Codemasters. “Damn your lies!” And with that, F1 2019 is go, the latest video game adaptation of Fleetwood Mac’s song The Chain. The frustrations, burdens, and dependencies of the human heart are transmuted into a metaphorical automobile, which we must drive at great speed through the straights and chicanes of life, listening to the wind blow while surrounded by rivals and relying on our team with our very life on the line. Weird metaphor, but it makes for some fun video games.

F1® 2019 Anniversary Edition

Let's get straight to business, shall we? F1 2019 is the most authentic F1 game I've played. And yes, I'm old enough to have been around when Geoff Crammond was still doing his thing (Formula One Grand Prix was such an obsession back in the day I'd write a mini-fanzine reporting on each race in-between the full-length Grand Prix I'd run every Sunday), to have manhandled the Ferrari 312 around the original 8.774 mile Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Grand Prix Legends and to have pumped 20p pieces into Namco's Final Lap.

And I've followed all of Codemasters' efforts since it acquired the official licence, from the modest beginnings of stopgap offering F1 2009 through to more convincing fare like F1 2013. There have been more than a few blips along the way, but plenty of high points as well - especially in recent years, as the team really began to find its voice. It's a familiar voice, too; the one of the avid enthusiast that tunes in to watch every test session, the one that revels in the details of new turning vanes and bargeboards and how upgraded rear wing elements might impact v-max down the long back straight.

The voice of F1 nerds like myself, basically, and to play F1 2019 is to indulge in a shared passion for the sport. This year's entry makes small strides in some areas and large ones in others, though as with the sport itself it's the small details that make the biggest difference. Visuals have been given the slightest of overhauls, though they have a big impact; there's now a perceptible haze that hangs over Bahrain as the desert night sets in, you can more readily read the state of a set of tires by looking at their texture as well as feeling the car slip under your fingers and new lighting gives the whole package a lift. The human character models still look as dreadful as ever, of course, although F1 2019 does manage to make Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto look even more like Harold Lloyd so I'll take that as a positive.
