Codemasters has rolled out a new patch, which means it is time for the F1 22 Update 1.16 patch notes!

Just because the season is over doesn't mean the Formula 1 game is forgotten. Some sporting updates have been made, along with fixing some frustrating bugs.

There is also a new mode coming to the F1 22 game today! Let's take a look at the full patch notes.

F1 22 Update 1.16

The biggest fixes in the new update focus on tyres.

The incorrect DSQ glitch has been fixed, meaning cars won't be disqualified for the game not recognising they used two tyre compounds.
