F1 2017 Patch 1.6 Is Now Live

Improved texture quality on PS4

Codemasters latest hit, F1 2017, has been patched and is now at version 1.6 on both PC and PlayStation 4, with the Xbox One release scheduled for the next day or two.

Here are the patch notes for the console version:

  • 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
  • Improved texture quality on PS4
  • 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

And here’s some additional tweaks that have been added to the PC patch:

  • McLaren’s Engine Power upgrades will now have an effect on the car when bought and applied.
  • Spec and Multi-Class Races with Classic cars in Grand Prix now work properly.
  • The player’s Team Mate at the start of a career will now always be the one they have chosen

    Thank goodness the Blue Flag scenario is included in this update. Still really enjoying this game.

    I’m still having a lot of issues with handling under braking (using controller), car always swerves left. Starting to think whether my analogue stick is broken and its not the game.

    Enjoying career mode but I don’t seem to be progressing the car as much as other teams (even though I’m getting max resource points each race weekend) and the invitational events offer nothing to the game and seem to be ridiculously difficult to pass in context to set difficulty.

    As expected the Ferraris and Mercedes are well ahead of the rest of the pack but on my career mode Hamilton is about 2 seconds faster a lap than even Vettel or Bottas. He’s untouchable.

      Check on the straights too – I have noticed my analogue stick sits slightly to the left if I just take my finger completely off it unless I seem to press it to the centre. It’s tiny, but noticeable if you notice you start to drift to one side.

    I’m glad to see the McLaren fixes as I’ve just started career mode with them.

      Only problem being that engine upgrades having no effect was much more realistic.

    Haven’t played F1 2017 much. Screen tears seem much worse in this version.
