New F1 24 update refreshes Ferrari and fixes Barcelona issue

F1 24’s latest patch has dropped today (24 June 2024), adding Ferrari’s new liveries to the game, as well as a raft of other fixes and improvements. The v1.5 update applies to PC, PlayStation and Xbox versions of EA and Codemasters’ game.

The headline feature showcases the Scuderia’s new sponsorship deal with US-based computing giant Hewlett-Packard, with the Californian company’s HP logos appearing on both Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc’s cars and suits.

With the Spanish Grand Prix taking place over the weekend the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has appropriately received a bit of work, with a troublesome bump being flattened out at Turn 13.

The game’s updated ERS system has also received some attention, with AI opponents now set to use the system to both overtake and defend more realistically. For players with deadzone issues in their pedals, or for those using sensitively-triggered gamepads, the brake pressure required to stop ERS deployment has also been increased.

Many bugs have been squashed in the v1.5 update too, with game-breaking issues in career mode – like being unable to progress beyond Secret Meeting screens – also being fixed. The full changelog is outlined below.
