The latest patch for Codemaster’s F1 2020 game was released last night, bringing with it numerous bug fixes, updates, and even some new DLC in support of the Keep Fighting Foundation. 

Patch 1.07 for the F1 2020 game was released last night to PC users, with other platforms expected to receive the patch later this week.

The patch appears to address a number of frustrating issues that had made themselves known in the game, such as players incorrectly being incorrectly offered a 0-stop strategy during a race that requires at least 1 pitstop, along with a number of other bug fixes, improvements, and a new DLC pack.

Bug fixes in patch 1.07

Patch 1.07 for F1 2020 fixes a number of little, yet annoying, issues that have been plaguing the game up until this latest update.

The most notable is the removal of players being incorrectly offered a 0-stop strategy in a race that requires at least 1 pit stop.

Alongside this, patch 1.07 also addresses crashes caused when accessing mail resulting from changes within leagues, as well as fixing a crash bug that could occur while spectating a multiplayer race.

Everyone’s favorite engineer Jeff will also now give the correct Championship standings information during a race.

Gameplay Updates in patch 1.07

Patch 1.07 also brings with it a number of gameplay updates, which will likely come as a relief to hardcore fans of the F1 gaming franchise.

Players will now not be penalized for passing the safety car on the pit lane entrance/exit, nor can they overtake the safety car once it is ready to return to the pit lane since the patch went live.

Should the player be eliminated in Q1, parc ferme rules will now be applied correctly, resulting in serious limitations to the setup changes available to the player.

F2 has received a number of large updates in the latest patch too; The sprint race grid in F2 will now always correctly reflect the result from the feature race, while F2 races in Vietnam will now be the correct number of laps.

Alongside these major updates, there are also small tweaks courtesy of this latest patch. These include an improvement of the splitscreen resolution, removal of player two’s ability to change race strategy for P1 in splitscreen, and the addition of brake boards at turn 12 in Brazil.
