Now I'll have to admit, it's taken a pretty long time for Codemasters to push out a relatively small update for F1 2020, that doesn't even contain the latest McLaren livery updates. Unless one is willing to delve into the rich collection of mods for the game available here at RaceDepartment, wait is exactly what we've had to do.

The new for 2020 Mercedes livery is of course the headline piece from the latest build, the German brand having caught out Codemasters by revealing an all new design just prior to the start of the real world Grand Prix season, however update 1.06 also includes a few minor tweaks and improvements to to the core gameplay mechanics.

It should be noted that balancing of team performances within the game have not been undertaken for this build, although tweaks to the relative pace of the cars are expected further down the line when a clearer picture of the respective team performance levels are known.

Is it like a 2020 season thing or are they going back to the old one at some point during the season ?
Looks great! I guess we should be thankful to god or whoever made the decision to not put a huge BLACK LIVES MATTER on the sides. A tiny "end racism" is perfectly acceptable. The BLM logo would have looked super silly on the car of a super privileged multimillionaire black guy who never really faced "racism" anyway.
