Following on from the release of Patch 1.16 across all platforms, the latest F1 2021 PC Update 1.16.852849 is devoted to improving the stability of the game on your desktop sim rig or laptop.
It’s a relatively small update and change list, aimed as resolving the issues being experienced by some PC racers trying to play F1 2021. And along with the software update, Codemasters have also shared a few troubleshooting tips which might improve matters. Hopefully it should mean a lot less problems for sim racers using their PC to play the game.
The cross-platform patch has also tackled issues with the game crashing if you back out from an official championship, or cancel salary negotiations with your team, and then attempt to restart things. Or if you’re having problems rejoining qualifying sessions or league events. It also includes general stability improvements. So maybe PC and console sim racers will all have a more reliable F1 2021 experience from now on.
