Hungry for more F1 after the Hungarian Grand Prix last weekend? Codemasters and EA Sports have just the thing for you with a brand-new F1 23 patch. Update 1.08, the third overall patch for the sim racing game, is live for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

If you ever wondered why the free practice programme for qualifying in career mode is so much harder than all the others, then wonder no more: It was all due to a bug, which has been fixed in this update. That means that you should be able to nail the qualifying practice programme to the same degree as the others, collecting valuable research points for your team.

Another important point of this patch is that an issue with tyre allocation in co-op careers should no longer trouble you. Previously, the game would allocate wrong tyre sets to players during any race weekend following on a sprint weekend, which obviously made things rather difficult.

Check below for the full F1 23 update 1.08 patch notes.
