And here’s some additional tweaks that have been added to the PC patch:

While not a huge fan of Formula One racing, I find myself on a yearly basis playing the latest F1 game by Codemasters. As a testament to the studio’s talents, I typically have a fun time despite not being the target audience. None of the past racing titles have truly captured my attention, though, as after going through a year or two of grands prix, I find myself moving on to play something else.

How are you enjoying F1 2017?
