Newly-released racing sim F1 23 is getting its first update in the coming days with patch 1.05. It’ll be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, so no platform will have to wait longer than any other for the changes to be implemented.

The biggest item on the list of fixes in this update is a bug that occurred at the end of a red flag – that’s the one interrupting the race due to a danger on track, be it extreme weather or debris from an accident. The game would sometimes randomly switch around drivers’ positions after the red flag ended, which is obviously not an intended feature – though probably a welcome one for the drivers at the back of the field finding themselves in front all of a sudden.

Check below for the full F1 23 update 1.05 patch notes.
