Custom team can now be used within Grand Prix

Today’s update has added the ability to race as the 11th team in Grand Prix mode. All teams will have equal performance, so this is the perfect opportunity to compete against the entire F1® 2021 grid in full, racing with your currently selected livery.

You will also be able to pick a teammate from the F2™ 2020 and F2™ 2021 seasons (except for Mick Schumacher, Nikita Mazepin, and Yuki Tsunoda) – as well as the My Team Icons, which are available to purchase in-game.

How does your perfect line-up stack up against the competition? Is it time to promote a new driver from F2™? Maybe this is the ideal opportunity for you to test who your new Icon signing will be in Grand Prix before recruiting them in My Team?

Connection Warning Icons

We’ve added some additional feedback when playing in Multiplayer in the form of the connection warning icons – you’ll see those if you or your competitors experience connection difficulties in-game. Here’s what we’ve added and what they mean:

Connectivity Issues

  • You’ll see the ‘Connectivity Issues’ icon displayed if you are connected to less than 67% of the players in the game.

Low bandwidth

  • Divide your bandwidth by the number of connections in your game, and if this number drops below a particular threshold, you’ll see the ‘Low Bandwidth’ icon.

Host Bandwidth

  • Similar to ‘Low Bandwidth’ but focused on the host’s connection. Divide the host’s bandwidth by the number of connections in the game, and if this number drops below a particular threshold, all players in the game will see the ‘Host Bandwidth’ icon.
