F1 2021 Patch 1.05 is now available on PC. The update introduces improvements to Nvidia DLSS implementation. There is also a new option that allows you to select the quality of ray tracing.

The update has also fixed many crashes that can be experienced in the game. For instance, have you experienced the game crash after returning to a ranked lobby? The issue here is that it would occur after the lobby had split.

Fortunately, the developers have managed to resolve the issue, so you do not have to worry about it ever happening again.

Because the patch contains general stability improvements and fixes, you will likely have a smoother gameplay experience after installing it.

Patch Notes

  • Improvements to DLSS implementation.
  • Resolved a crash that could occur after returning to a ranked lobby if the lobby had split.
  • Addressed an issue where players could be split into a placeholder lobby when re-matchmaking in ranked.
  • Rebalanced Prologue and Chapter 9 of Braking Point on Hard difficulty.
  • Addressed a crash when previewing items within the Podium Pass.
  • Addressed a crash when Player 2 quits in Two-Player Career Player career while Player 1 is in an interview.
  • Addressed a crash with UDP if the number of active cars was zero.
  • Addressed a crash when editing colors of customization items.
  • Addressed a crash that could occur when saving an F2™ highlight from Grand Prix mode.
  • Addressed an issue where Two-Player Career could be locked to equal performance.
  • Addressed an issue where players could be placed on suboptimal tires during an F2 Sprint race.

With improvements to DLSS implementation, it is a good idea to download the latest drivers from Nvidia to ensure optimal performance. Sadly, AMD users who are hoping to use FidelityFX Super Resolution will have to wait until the developers add support for the technology.

It is also worth noting that enabling ray tracing can improve the graphical elements of the game. However, you will need a competent CPU and GPU to take full advantage of it.
