    F1 Mobile Racing 2019 Update.jpg
    A new update to F1 Mobile Racing is heading your way soon - offering the first opportunity to drive the 2019 Formula One grid in any racing game.


    Currently available on iOS and Android and featuring the 2018 racing season, update 5 for F1 Mobile Racing will see the inclusion of the teams, drivers and liveries from the current Grand Prix year, with the new content replacing the 2018 version within the game.

    Codemasters have explained that any player who has already purchased a 2018 livery within the game will receive the corresponding 2019 livery free of charge once the update goes live - although they haven't fully committed to exactly when that update will be available, short of some time in early May.

    Team liveries from the previous season will be removed, but for existing Mobile Racing players who have already purchased a livery, they will receive the corresponding 2019 team livery free of charge. For example, if you already own the 2018 Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport livery, the 2019 Mercedes colours will be waiting for you in your Garage after installing the new update! 2018 driver helmets will remain in the game, and you’ll retain any helmets you’ve purchased, but only the new helmets will be purchasable from Update 5.

    What do you think of F1 Mobile Racing? Do you like the concept, have you tried the game yet? Let us know in the comments section below!

    3D models look really wrong, 2019 style front wing, totally wrong nose,
    driver looks about 9 years old there sat way too low inside the cockpit looks really strange tbh,
    not convinced by the visuals 1 bit.

    I'm not terribly happy with the game. I play it for the arcade feel of it, not because it is in any way realistic. But, I suppose it is nice to have the new grid available now...especially with the season challenges they have for us.

    Well the models are just the generic base models (judging from the small print "2019 F1 Technical Regulations Cars", so I guess there will be an update on those.

    Yes I missed that part my bad,
    non the less the drivers are still like 9 year olds, the regulations are quite clear at this point for safety of the drivers they need to be seated in a certain position,
    youll tend to see that the top of the drivers surround the base structure where the halos are mounted,
    the drivers visors are always level with the top of the surround, like I say for safety.

    I do not see that here so still stand by my original post.

    Fully agree on that. Drivers look tiny and completely out of position.

    This game is crap.

    Took a few days off to let this new update settle in. Get back in to realize my entire car has been disassembled and have to put all my updates back on it. This ticked me off last update this happened. I just deleted the game from my phone because I'm never getting the same car back. Again.
