F1 24 V1.5 Update Changes Ferrari and Smooths Out Barcelona

EA has announced the third post-launch update for F1 24, which brings some major changes to the game. Cars, tracks, game modes, and game features are all affected by the update, with V1.5 being the biggest update since F1 24 launched last month.

Let’s take a look at what’s coming in the F1 24 V1.5 update.

Changing Ferrari

Since the Miami Grand Prix back in May, eagle-eyed fans may have noticed something different about the Ferrari cars. The Sunshine State race saw the Scuderia debut its brand-new title sponsor, with Hewlett-Packard (HP) branding plastered all over the car.

When F1 24 launched, however, HP was nowhere to be seen on the Ferrari. That’s now changed in update 1.5. Fans can now rack up the laps in the overhauled Ferrari, with the HP logo now taking pride of place on the car.

The Ferrari race suits for Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz, and of course, you if you drive for the Italian team have also changed to match the real-world suits and the official team name has changed to Scuderia Ferrari HP.

As for the rest of the grid, the UI color has been changed for Haas and Visa Cash App RB. This will help players distinguish between the two teams more easily.

The changes aren’t just limited to the teams as a whole. Update 1.5 also brings significant changes to the AI drivers.

Racing the AI

Many F1 24 players have noted the AI unrealistic performances. Whether they are rocket ships down the straights or setting outlandish times when simulating sessions, players found it hard to keep up with the rest of the grid.

Update 1.5 changes the AI behavior to make the racing more even. Simulated lap times will now resemble on-track times more closely, while ERS will be used by the AI more realistically to encourage overtaking and build gaps between drivers.

Players should now find the AI easier to handle during races. Overtaking should and defending against other drivers should be easier.

AI drivers will also use the correct tyre compounds during Sprint Shootouts, once again adding to the realism.

The changes don’t end there either, with another major issue reported by players also fixed in update 1.5.

Smooth racing

There’s nothing worse than hitting an invisible obstacle while racing. For F1 24 players, this was a regular occurrence during the Spanish Grand Prix.

When approaching the penultimate corner, some players were colliding with the outside curb, launching their car into the air. This, as you can imagine, was causing drivers to crash out unfairly during races.

Update 1.5 smooths out Barcelona, removing this invisible blockade just in time for the real-world paddock to race around Catalunya. Now F1 24 racers can comfortably nail the final corner complex without being sent to the moon.

The DRS markers in Spa and Albert Park have also been relocated at the correct points along their respective circuits.

Various other issues and crashes have been addressed in update 1.5, resolving many game-breaking problems players had been facing.
