Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing may have wrapped up this season’s titles already in real life, but this may be very different in your F1 23 career. To spice up the season finale for you, EA Sports has released another patch for the sim racing game – and it’s a big one. Update 1.15 is live for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, introducing a refresh on the game’s car models.

Some F1 teams changed up their car designs rather drastically from how they looked at the start of the ongoing season and this refinement process is finally visible in the game now – you can say “Tschüss!” to the cursed no-sidepod Mercedes, to name the most prominent example.

New looks, same old action: All car models in F1 23 are now up to date.

Another big change is the addition of the official F2 2023 season in the game. This season’s F2 cars are available in career mode, F1 World, and multiplayer now.

Check below for the full F1 23 update 1.15 patch notes.
