The last update to come to F1 2021 was patch 1.05 on July 28th. 2021. This update was available for PC and PlayStation before eventually coming to Xbox platforms.

Well Codemasters has now released a new patch for the game today. The update is version number 1.06 and it comes with a ton of bug fixes and gameplay improvements. The PS5 patch number is 01.006.000. Much like the other patch, this new update is available now for PC and PlayStation, and will be out on Xbox at a later date.

One of the cooler things about this update is that it will fix online issues that Xbox players had been having with the game. Stuttering while playing on a headset has also improved. Potential crashes have also been addressed too.
