F1 23: Possible Improvements for Next Week's Update

F1 23 Hungarian Grand Prix Update.png
As Formula One has set up shop in Hungary, EA and Codemasters are working on another update for F1 23. After fixing a major bug related to equal-strength tire wear in v1.07, the upcoming patch does not have to tackle such big issues, but a few fixes that could be coming would make players' lives easier in a few game modes.

Most of the issues that are currently awaiting a patch are not game breaking ones, but they have the potential to be annoying. The most obvious example is the hard tire compound being unavailable after sprint races in Two-Player career, limiting strategic options for the feature race. Issues with connecting to LAN lobbies should also be rectified in the near future, according to the Community-Raised Issues thread on the EA forums.

Smaller issues that might get fixed with the upcoming update include EA friends lists showing no entries if players have added a large number of friends, implementing the correct times of day for both the Bahrain and Saudi Arabia races, and qualifying practice programs being way more difficult than they should be.

FFB Troubles​

A considerably more sever issue affects players using Thrustmaster T300 as well as Logitech G923 and Pro wheels, who have reported loss or complete absence of Force Feedback. While the game is of course still playable without, this issue makes it significantly harder to control the cars and predict their behavior.

Currently, these issues are listed under "investigating", but since Logitech and Thrustmaster hardware is wide-spread and commonly used by racers, this should be the top priority issue to fix. They might be included in the upcoming patch if EA and Codemasters can find a solution in a timely manner - especially since more wheel-related issues have been raised, with Logitech TrueForce not being available in the Xbox version of F1 23 and "various Force Feedback issues across multiple platforms" being part of the ongoing investigations as well.
