F1 Mobile Racing update 29 adds new car parts and upgraded car models 

F1 Mobile Racing – the iOS and Android-based Formula 1 racing game co-developed by Eden Games, Codemasters and Electronic Arts – has just received a new update today (21st August 2023), and it adds a whole raft of updates to the officially licenced racing game. 

Car updates 

The F1 Mobile Racing development team has been hard at work updating the look of the game’s cars to match their real-world counterparts. Given teams constantly upgrade and change the appearance of their cars’ aerodynamic packages throughout the season, this is a necessary update. 

This has also extended to each car’s cockpits, with all 10 F1 teams’ steering wheel set-ups refreshed; including Williams’ unique dash-mounted screens. 

Legendary rarity level 

A new Legendary rarity level has been added to the game, offering a stats boost to three areas of car performance as opposed to the previous maximum of two.  

Legendary items include new driver cards, parts and team principal cards, with a full list below for reference:
