F1 22 Update 1.09 Patch Notes: Tyre temps fixed, auto gears, AI fixes, and more

Monday sees Codemasters drop a new patch for Formula 1 and we have the F1 22 Update 1.09 patch notes!

The list is pretty in this update, and includes news on crossplay following its recent beta test.

Of course, F1 22 isn't the only Formula 1 game these days, as F1 Manager 2022 hits early release this week.

But what has Codemasters fixed? Let's check it out.

F1 22 Update 1.09

There are plenty of big bug fixes and quality of life changes for the Formula 1 game.

The biggest points are an improvement to the automatic gearbox assist that corrects spending too long on the rev limiter and a fix for starting tyre temperatures when not using a formation lap.

There have also been updates to AI logic in certain situations and some multiplayer stability updates too.

Crossplay lands later this week

While not included in Update 1.09, EA & Codemasters has confirmed that crossplay will arrive in the game later this week after its recent beta testing.

Once it does land you will need to go to Game Options > Settings to enable crossplay.
