F1 2021 Updated to Version 1.15 On All Platforms

F1 2021 January 2022 Update 01.jpg
F1 2021 has been updated to version 1.15, which brings bugfixes and improvements, including adjusted AI speed through select corners.

The calendar year may now read 2022, but F1 2021 is still receiving updates from developer Codemasters. The recent update brings the title to version 1.15. While not a major update, the fixes and changes will bring welcome improvements to the most recent official F1 game.

Among the changes are adjustments to the speed the AI cars are able to carry through specific corners. The Red Bull Ring, Spa Francorchamps, and Zandvoort will see the AI cars slowed slightly through specific corners.

Another notable addition is the ability to race your custom team within a Grand Prix. Previously the Grand Prix slots were filled by the real world teams, but players can now bring their custom built teams to the grid. To fill the second team seat, you can choose an F2 driver other than Schumacher, Mazepin or Tsunoda.

With still a month to go before the real-world teams start their winter testing, those of us longing for Formula 1 action can try out some of the improvements found in 1.15 of F1 2021 to satisfy that craving. If you've tried out any of the new features in the January update, let us know in the comments below.

Yawn, didn't add triple screen support!
While yes it's very annoying there is no triple support you can still do so. With nvidia surround or in my case a custom resolution. I run a 34" ultrawide in the middle and 2 x 27" on the sides. Surround won't let you mix resolution but you can get around this by defining your own resolution.
 
F1 2021 is the only racing title that I drive in pancake mode, literally because I must. After using VR for more than a year, I actually surprised myself for being able to race in 2D again. :whistling:

Okay if you have your screens like a big UW but if you have correct angles of the screens they is is warped no matter what you do. There needs to be a tool to adjust for monitor angles.
 
No update to include Team Bosses arguing with Race Officials? :)
Nah that'll be DLC for MyTeam. Expanding the victory radio messages with other ones things like "I would recommend a red flag", "can Perez start from the pits?", "please not a Safety Car", "No Michael! No" and whatever that message regarding Alonso and Raikkonen in Austin was (it's too complicated for me to remember fully lol).

Anyway, it'd be too realistic for the F1 games.

Jk I actually really enjoy the F1 games.
