There’s a small update for PC and console racers to download with a minor F1 2019 Patch v1.21 released on all platforms. It addresses a few small issues with the game including players being stuck between qualifying sessons in leagues.
F1 2019 Patch 1.21
GAMEPLAY- Repair Wing Damage Settings
Previously, under very light damage, a wing change would not happen even if the player instructed the change to happen. The reason for this being that the car performance after losing such a small amount of wing was minimal, and therefore would decide that changing the wing was not worth the time lost in the pitstop.
This has now been updated so that the user can update the MFD to change the ‘Repair Wing Damage’ setting, and the game will follow the player instruction regardless of level of physical damage incurred.
LEAGUES – Addressed an issue where users would get stuck at qualifying 1 if full qualifying and saving between sessions are enabled
From user feedback, we noticed that players could not advance through the qualifying sessions if full qualifying and saving between sessions are enabled. This has now been amended and the player can play through the league experience. You will not need to start a new league for the improvements to take effect.
SPECTATOR- Addressed an issue where users could see drivers on incorrect tyres after a pit stop
In some cases, spectators will see at least one car on the wrong compound after everyone has completed their pitstop.
This has now been updated to show the correct tyres fitted to the car in spectator modes.
MULTIPLAYER – The spectated car will no longer appear ghosted in one-shot qualifying
In some instances, spectating a one-shot qualifying session in Multiplayer would cause cars spectated to be a ghost. The cars were ghosting onboard as well as on external cameras. This has now been amended so you can spectate a player without the car ghosting.
TIME TRIAL- F2 car leaderboards will now show which era car has been used (2018 or 2019)
To help players differentiate between era of F2 cars, we have now added an icon into the menus.
Information from the Codemasters forums also includes that there’s at least one more patch in the development plans for F1 2019, although things are always subject to change.
