F1 2021 Updated to Version 1.16 Across All Platforms

F1 2021 February Update 01.jpg
Codemasters has published a small update for F1 2021 across all platforms, bringing the title to version 1.16.

A small update is now available to be installed for F1 2021 on all platforms. The focus of the update is mainly bug fixes and minor UI improvements.

Development of F1 2021 will undoubtedly be coming to a close soon as the development team at Codemasters shifts their focus to the next installment of the series.

F1 2021 was widely well-received in reviews. The title showed some gameplay improvements versus previous titles, but also an elaborate and well produced story mode to help players reenact the off track drama we're seeing more of in the real F1.

A challenge facing the development team this offseason will be the implementation of new performance metrics and car styles owing to the regulation changes in Formula 1 going into next season. We typically see F1 titles released in summer, and that should be the case here as the team will need time to gather data and scan cars which are only now being revealed to the world.

The changelog for the version 1.16 update is below. Are you still playing F1 2021? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below on this title and your expectations for future titles.
