F1 23: Major Tire Wear Bug Fixed in Update v1.07

Equal now means equal: A major bug regarding tire wear in F1 23 had recently made waves, putting the entire esports competition aspect of the game in question - which is why EA Sports and Codemasters have reacted and fixed the problem as part of the v1.07 update. Career Mode players and console racers using Logitech and Thrustmaster wheels can also breathe a sigh of relief.

While F1 23 aims to recreate the strengths and weaknesses of the real Formula One vehicles, it also has the option to set cars to equal performance for competition purposes, such as the Formula 1 Esports Series. However, not all of the cars had the same tire wear rate, as recently came to light, which particularly disadvantaged drivers of the Haas and Ferrari cars. As part of the new patch, this problem has been fixed, so equal performance now means equal.

FFB Fixes on PC & Console​

This is not all there is to v1.07, though: Players had also reported a loss of Force Feedback with both Thrustmaster and Logitech wheels when playing on Xbox, and PC racers would sometimes lose FFB when returning the game to focus after alt-tabbing out of it, for example. Both of these issues have been fixed.

Meanwhile, drivers should no longer retire before the last race of the season in Career Mode. Previously, contract negotiations and retirements have happened prior to a season's finale, causing issues moving forward. Various UI bugs and multiplayer issues have also been taken care of - you can find the full list of changes below.

"Fixed an issue where AI drivers could slow down and match player speed during Qualifying Inlap" I don't believe this, please someone confirm this as I am waiting for the sale to get this thing. Also is it only for inlap? Or out lap as well?
This is how many years of this bug they are fixing now?
I don't even know
 
Why the update is called v1.07? On PC game boot screen shows 1.6xyzxyz to me.

Then you did not receive the update yet. The current version is 1.7.1008687.
1.6.1006145 was the version with the 1.05 patch (which received a hotfix included, thus was upped one number).

Looking forward to this game (as it should be better than 22) but I cannot justify giving 70€ for it. Waiting for a sale... Those limited time events are a pity though.
It is better. The handling model it's way better and now I feel connected to the car. I hate with all my heart F1 22 as the driving experience is really bad and the car is really unpredictable. This year though it has been improved massively.
