F1 2019 Update 1.20 Patch Analysed

So what have Codemasters fixed in this latest F1 2019 patch?

Safety Car Updates

To start with, they have addressed an issue that has been plaguing season mode racers since the games launch in 2019. Improvements to the safety car.

The goal of this update is to have the safety car deployed more often during a race. Up until this point, many gamers go the whole season without seeing a single safety car.

Now Codemasters are saying that the safety car should appear more frequently. This is due to an improved obstruction detection programme, allowing the safety car to detect on track incidents easier.

Along with this, the VSC chance has also been increased, especially when there has been a car retirement.

League Racing Improvements

New features have been released for league racers. The ability to save session progress in between sessions and the addition of reserve drivers.

Reserve drivers being added should result in league races running more smoothly.

Other Fixes

Other than the improvements above there are also a selection of fixes through out the game.

There are a selection of career mode fixes, including issues where progress would not be saved during the Austrailan Grand Prix weekend. Also an issue where Devin Butler and Lukas Weber would appear in the F1 season even after the user has skipped the F2 feeder series has been fixed.

Players will also be warned if they try to purchase upgrades if the selected department is about to experience a regulation change. This should avoid players wasting research points towards the end of a season.

There have also been some stability issues fixed, including issues with the Logitech G29, and adding keyboard support for the Xbox console.
