F1 2021 Codemasters

F1 2021, the racing game now owned by EA, received an important patch yesterday. The developer of the game, Codemasters, released Patch 1.06 on all platforms. The patch is mostly focused on bug fixes and some minor improvements. So, it is not as substantial as the previous update that brought DLSS support.

The patch improves the haptic feedback on PS5 when it’s set to weak. The loading screen of Braking Point will not cause high GPU usage anymore, and achievements in “League Racer” will now be unlocked correctly.

From now on, Ghosting will be turned on for Ranked matches. Minor damages will now cause MFD to pop up and players can change car performance after creating a league.

We have mentioned the rest of the changes below:

  • Addressed an issue where there could be no force feedback on Thrustmaster wheels if the task manager was open in the background in Windowed mode.
  • Addressed an issue where force feedback would not be active on Thrustmaster wheels when launching from a desktop shortcut.
  • Audio will no longer stutter when connecting an official Xbox headset into the controller.
  • Quick Practice will no longer cause excessive wear to components.
  • Addressed various issues with online session connectivity on Xbox.
  • UDP: LapHistoryDate will now be correctly sent for an active car after another has retired.
  • Addressed a potential crash while using photo mode.
  • Addressed a potential crash during broadcast sequences.
  • Track surface will now appear correctly for player 2 in split-screen during a wet race.
  • On-track VFX can no longer be seen by other drivers in F2 one-shot qualifying.
  • 3D Audio for headphones has temporarily been disabled on PS5. This will be re-enabled as soon as audio issues relating to it have been resolved.
  • Mid-season driver negotiations have been removed from the first season of a Real Season Start career.
  • Addressed an issue where the Emirian Flag could be displayed on the podium instead of the Turkish Flag.
  • Tire wear can now be viewed on the MFD during the formation lap.
  • Rebalanced chapters 1, 3, 5, 9, and 12 on Normal difficulty in Braking Point.
  • General stability improvements.
  • Various minor fixes.

The complete patch notes are available on the official site.
