There’s a new update to download with F1 2021 Patch V1.17 released. The download mainly contains a number of further fixes and improvements for the Codemasters Formula One game, but does add the Red Bull White livery as an option to choose for your car if you’ve missed it since it was temporarily available in the past.
There are a couple of handy league improvements, with the fastest lap point no longer disappearing if you make any edits, and grid penalties will now carry over as intended. And you also get a number of general game improvements covering AI, some R&D bugs, general stability and a calibration issue if you’re using Fanatec CSL DD pedals.
