Codemasters includes this change in its latest update

Decoration is a symbol of their fight against racism

Lovers of the official video game of Formula 1 are in luck. F1 2020 already has one of the main novelties of the current Formula 1 season. The new black decoration of the Mercedes team is now available in its latest update to the delight of fans of the Great Circus and more ‘gamers’.

Just before starting the 2020 Formula 1 season in Austria, Mercedes surprised everyone with a change of decoration to a totally black one, to demand equality and end racism.

With the release of the F1 2020 video game just around the corner, its developer, Codemasters, stated that they could not include it at the time of its release, but they could in a future update. That update has arrived. Just a few weeks after its release, the 1.06 update of the video game – available now on PC and soon on PS4 and Xbox One – already includes this change.

Among other minor improvements, the main novelty is the incorporation of this new paint that will delight many fans. But this is not the only decoration change for a Formula 1 team, as the Williams team suppressed the color red after the loss of their main sponsor ROKiT, although this change was already present in the initial version of the video game.

F1 2020 has all the drivers and teams from the 2020 Formula 1 season and the cars and drivers from the 2019 Formula 2 campaign, with the 2020 season pending introduction soon. It also includes the 22 circuits of the original calendar, with Vietnam and Zandvoort, despite the fact that these are not part of the new calendar configured as a result of the covid-19.

Despite the fact that some new circuits are going to enter the calendar this year, Codemasters has ruled out its introduction in the form of extra downloadable content for the video game. F1 2020 is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
