EA F1 22 has announced in-game circuit upgrades to several tracks.  Spain, Australia and Abu Dhabi have all benefitted from the upgrades. Bringing fans even closer to the action, the changes allow gamers to recreate iconic racing moments. Gamers can now also race just like Verstappen vs Russell at Barcelona. Or, fans can choose to re-live that race in Abu Dhabi.

Our Preview version game review showcased the Miami track as well as its features. Now with the game’s launch fast approaching, EA’s latest changes ensure the updated tracks further enhance the game’s experience.


  • Turn 10 sees a new layout matching those introduced in real life for the postponed 2021 race. Turns 10-14 have updated off track areas, alongside several sausage kerbs around the circuit. Alpine’s Fernando Alonso has demonstrated the changes in this special video.
  • The Albert Park Circuit has been remodelled using LIDAR data, boasting more detailed height and camber. Outfield areas see walls repositioned, and kerbs replaced with new photogrammetry versions. There are multiple changes to the circuit with a new layout to turns 1, 3, 6, 8/9 (replacing the chicane), 11, 12, and 13.

Abu Dhabi
  • Yas Marina’s turn 5,where Verstappen overtook Hamilton to secure the 2021 Formula One World Championship, has changed with the chicane removed before the hairpin. The hairpin has also come forward adding more runoff. The turn 9 chicane and 90-degree turns become a single cambered turn, replacing turns 11-14. Turns 13-15 now round off around the hotel to allow cars to follow more closely.

In a statement announcing the changes, EA said:

“Today Codemasters® and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announced EA SPORTS F1® 22 in-game updates to Spanish, Australian, and Abu Dhabi circuits, bringing them in line with their real-world counterparts. All improvements have been designed to promote greater competition as part of the new era of Formula 1®, with the introduction of new cars and regulations for the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship.

F1 22 will release on July 1 2022. Players can pre-order the digital-only F1® 22 Champions Edition for additional content. The digital-only release gives gamers three days of early access.
