Trotz guter Wertungen hatte F1 2010 mit einigen Startschwierigkeiten zu kämpfen. So konnte ein verbuggter Boxenstopp die Spieler so manches mal ein sicher gewonnenes Rennen kosten. Auch die Strafwertungen waren nicht immer gerechtfertigt. Mit dem jüngst veröffentlichten Patch sollten diese Fehler der Vergangenheit angehören. Es häufen sich aber die Meldungen, dass nach wie vor nicht alle Probleme mit dem Spiel behoben seien oder dass das Spiel nach der Installation des Updates sogar überhaupt nicht mehr läuft. Wir werden in dieser Angelegenheit weiter recherchieren und halten Sie auf dem Laufenden.
