F1 23 Update 1.19 Fixes McLaren Chrome Livery and Other Issues


F1 23 V1.19 update

The latest F1 23 update has been released, and with it comes a wide range of fixes and improvements. From addressing tyre issues to correcting the McLaren Chrome Livery, let’s take a look at what’s been fixed in F1 23 update 1.19.

Chrome finish

The McLaren Chrome Livery was one of the standout liveries of 2023. Bringing back the iconic McLaren silver of the late 2000s, the livery lit up the 2023 British Grand Prix and even scored a double podium for the Woking team.

The McLaren Chrome Livery came to F1 23 as an early Christmas present for players, rewarded for beating Lando Norris in a Pro Challenge around Silverstone. The livery was in high demand, with many asking for it to come to the game much sooner. But when it finally hit the grid, it wasn’t perfect for everyone.

The McLaren Chrome Llivery wasn’t rendering correctly for some in MyTeam, but the v1.19 update patch addresses this. Now you can dazzle your rivals on the track with both your livery and racecraft.
