    F1 2016 Patch.jpg
    Codemasters have confirmed a new patch for the impressive F1 2016 title is due for release across all three platforms available for the game, bringing with it fixes to the frustrating crash bug and some multiplayer enhancements amongst other things.

    The new patch brings F1 2016 up to version 1.5.1 and again takes the title a further step forward from its already impressive post release state. Many consider F1 2016 to be the finest edition to the series since Codemasters took over the official Formula One licence, with the latest game benefitting from a much expanded career mode, several new features such as manual pit entry and race starts, plus further fine tuning of the driving experience in the title.

    Although with several issues remain for all three platform editions of the game, Codemasters look like they are working hard behind the scenes to bring about the final polish a title of this obvious underlying quality deserves.


    F1 2016 Update 1.51 Patch Notes:
    • Fixed a crash loading specific mid-session saves from a previous version.
    • Fixed the LCD display on the steering wheel not always showing the current gear.
    • Fixed a multiplayer bug that would sometimes show players who pit under the safety car as being in first place which led to the queue breaking and penalties being awarded incorrectly.
    • Players who disconnect now behave like players who have paused, they will ghost and drive at the chosen AI difficulty level.
    • The session starts in countdown will no longer reset when a new player joins the lobby.
    • Fixed a number of crash bugs.


    Check out the F1 2016 sub forum here at RaceDepartment for all the latest news, discussions, setups and mods for the most recent Codemasters release. If online driving is your thing, head over to the F1 2016 Clubs and Leagues page to see what's on offer today!

    Wonder if they are going to fix the 4 wheels with no car bug. Kind of creepy when just 4 tires are chasing after you.

    Love the confusion. CM are trying to keep the patch numbers the same across all platforms, which is why on PC (for example), the last patch was 1.50 and it never had a 1.4 patch. The 1.4 patch was just for PS4.

    Looking at CM forum, this patch's announcement thread across all platforms is currently called ......... Patch notes1.06 ....... err what? :D

    ....... however, the actual patch notes in that thread confirms it as v 1.51

  7. -Fixed a multiplayer bug that would sometimes show players who pit under the safety car as being in first place which led to the queue breaking and penalties being awarded incorrectly.

    curious, Is this the reason behind the "overtake safety car" game breaker message that ends with everyone being wrongly disqualified eventually? I hope this fixes that complete joke of a bug, can't use the safety car in leagues until then...:mad:

  13. Something that in my opinion is completely necessary is the possibility to change the helmet during the career without restarting it. I hope codies will fix that soon

    Out of curiosity what is the obsession about being able to change the helmet in career mode? I have seen this asked quit a bit on the codemaster forum.
