PC players can start playing the Early access after a troubling first day.

Earlier today, Early access to the latest edition of Formula One started, to the enjoyment of thousand of console players.  And while the console players have been enjoying the new Formula One edition all morning, Steam users were forgotten.

PC players were left confused with the message: Available on the 2nd of July, which is the regular release date. Early access should have been available to players who purchased the more expensive, Champions edition.

There was no public statement from the EA as the only Tweeted about servers going down on all platforms. This isn't the first time the EA has had trouble with Early access, as FIFA players has the same issues in the past.

In response to the game being unavailable, players started asking for a refund, as they paid more specifically for Early access.

Just an hour ago, F1 SteamDB got an update, and minutes ago, players started reporting that the game is finally available to play on PC. 

Hopefully, this will be the last problem for PC players with Early access.

NVIDIA published the new set of drivers for the game as well, so if you own an NVIDIA card, download the drivers first to have your game as optimized as possible
