F1 2020 is taking the gaming world by storm.
Now just 10 days after full release it is one of the most streamed games on Twitch and has received near-universal acclaim.
However, it wasn’t without bugs and issues upon launch. Another patch is here to fix plenty of things.

Update 1.05 release date & platforms
The patch is now live for PC and both Xbox One & PS4 players.
It had arrived first on PC, but Codemasters ensured console gamers weren’t behind for too long.
Frustratingly, the patch notes do not discuss the updated Mercedes livery or other team colours & liveries that are in need of a refresh.
Codemasters has promised it will be in a digital update “soon”, but a specific date has not yet been given.
Undoubtedly the timeframe is impacted by developers still working from home.
Hopefully the correct liveries will be with us before long.
