At the weekend, Formula 1 returns with the start of the season in Bahrain. In advance, the Codemasters team has released a new update for F1 2020. However, there is no content for the start of the season. Instead, version 1.17 takes care of several bugs that last appeared in the racing game.

The update is available now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The developers have also published the patch notes that we have included at the end of this message. Codemasters will soon also announce the next part of the simulation with F1 2021. In our special we already dared to look into the future and talked about the expectations for the upcoming game. In focus: the takeover of Codemasters by EA.
