Since the removal of classic cars from the Formula 1 game this is now the only place you race a real classic F1 car.

The three new layouts are the much prefered no chicane option, the short national circuit, and a rallycross track!

There is plenty more than that though.

This update adds two Extra Menus and several new Events in World Circuits. Unfortunately, none of them have a worthwhile reward for your time, and none have been added to Circuit Experience.

Physics Simulation Model

  • Adjusted the suspension geometry
  • Adjusted the simulation for tyre heat generation and wear ratio. This adjustment makes it easier to see the remaining tread
  • Altered the simulation of the differential gear (with a Fully Customisable LSD). As a result, it's now more effective when decelerating and provides a much smoother driving performance
  • Adjusted the Performance Points (PP) of some cars
  • Changed the conditions for mechanical damage occurring from a collision or contact if 'Mechanical Damage' is set to ‘Light’ or Heavy’ in the race settings

Controllers

Adjusted the performance of the wireless controller.

Sound
