F1 2017 is already pretty good, but the latest patch from the developer, Codemasters, is adding some tasty new treats for fans of four-wheeled fun and games.

The headline feature is a new photo mode for consoles, allowing players to get creative and snap their best angles of the action. The feature is already available on the PC but the new patch brings it to both Xbox One and PS4.

Spectator mode is also getting some hefty improvements:

As a spectator, you'll be able to control what information is shown. You'll also be able to see live timing for the car you're spectating, fastest laps, as well as sector-specific yellow flags. If you don't want to see any of this information as a spectator, though, you will be able to disable (or enable!) as you please.

You get a broadcast style box on the left of the screen allowing you to see information such as:

  • Gap to the race leader.
  • Gap to the car ahead or behind.
  • Positions lost or gained.
  • Fastest lap times.
  • Current tire compound.
  • In the pits.
  • Number of pit stops.

The "sports update" also adds updated liveries and car performance data in line with the current F1 grid. The patch is pushing out now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and for more information and the full changelog check out the Codemasters blog.
