After an eventful US Grand Prix last weekend, a surprise F1 23 hotfix has rolled out on all platforms. Update 1.16 is a small but important patch that fixes a frustrating bug. Let’s find out what’s new in the F1 23 update 1.16 patch notes.

Thankfully, the latest F1 23 patch squashes this frustrating bug.
In addition, update 1.16 rebalances and makes a few corrections to the F1 esports driver’s statistics. These are the only additions in F1 23 update 1.16, but you can find the full patch notes below.
