    Motorsport Manager has today received an update to build version 1.31, adding several enhancements and fixes to the popular PC game.

    Deployed automatically via Steam, the latest update from Playsport Games brings a substantial number of fixes to a title that has shown signs of continual improvement as the developers remain active in updating the game following it's release back in November.

    Build 1.31 highlights include a raft of fixes to outstanding bugs within the title, not least of which is addressing the results positions recording error and a range of frustrating interview question faults. Furthermore the new update addresses a long standing corrupted save file issue that has plagued a number of players in recent builds.

    You can read the full update notes for 1.31 below:

    • Added a Blue Flag preference toggle
    • Blue Flags now take into consideration how fast a vehicle is compared to the backmarker

    • Fixed a bug where drivers would occasionally ignore pit orders and then crash

    • Fixed a bug where music would continue to play during sessions if a new career had been started with the tutorial on
    • Fixed a bug where the Commentary Feed would not display in the race if the player had skipped the previous session
    • Fixed an issue where the 'Pre-Season Start' item would refer to the series you came from, instead of your current series if recently promoted
    • Fixed an interview question where the player's driver that finished in first was treated as if they were not part of the team
    • Various interview bug fixes
    • The graphics quality settings in 3D mode affects the quality of the GT car image displayed in 2D mode
    • Improved AI in-lap and out-lap behaviours to give other cars more space during practice and qualifying
    • There is now less corner-cutting on certain layouts in Beijing
    • Fixed an issue where any votes the player had chosen wouldn't appear in the calendar until the day the vote was due
    • Fixed an issue where messages telling the player that their tyres were not appropriate were always incorrect
    • Fixed an issue where the incorrect wheel models were being picked based on the tyre rules
    • The "Living Up To Their Namesake" achievement has been made easier to obtain
    • Adjusted the way lock ups are calculated
    • Fixed an issue where the qualifying rule type could be changed for previously saved games.

    • Fixed a bug where a second chassis would appear in the Car Screen after part development was reset by the GMA
    • The number of real safety cars that can appear in a race has been capped per session length
    • Modified the tyre information rollover so that 'estimated laps remaining' takes the current tyre wear into account
    • Added a rollover to locked tyres at the start of the race to display the estimated laps remaining for that tyre
    • When entering the pit screen in Q3 and observing a locked tyre, this tyre is no longer permanently locked for both drivers in the following race
    • Fixed an issue where the player would not be able to progress past the 'accept money from chairman' phase in a new game
    • Fixed a rare crash bug when loading into a race
    • Fixed misaligned tutorial boxes
    • Changed the way the race director assesses the weather forecast to unlock tyre selection
    • Fixed an issue where the 'Liverypack AssetBundle' would prevent the game from starting
    • Fixed an issue where the reserve driver was using the main drivers feedback stat during practice
    • Fixed an issue where the "Reigning Champion" trait would not be re-applied to drivers who had previously won it
    • Fixed an issue where pre-race media messages were not being triggered after loading and saving a game
    • Fixed an issue where Predator's rival team was... Predator

    Great update, Blue flags were my big concern, now, thinking on next update would be cool to have the ability to make the transition career from open wheels to GT´s....... I would love to be able to choose a GT team on my next season and use the same career in order to maintain CV so to speak!!!

    You can apply to another team if i'm not mistaken. If their manager is at risk you could apply for the job at that team. I think that is a way to change from open wheel to GT
