Description

F1 Manager for PC is the official racing simulation game of the real Formula 1, Two and Three championships. You are a manager, in charge of both the car’s development, and the team’s morale and readiness for the races.

About the Game


Compared to the game’s last outing, this version has a much more detailed and intricate career progression in the My Team mode. It also adds an extra touch of realism, using the actual voices of professional commentators, Martin Brundle, Karun Chandhok and David Croft.

Your duties are wide ranging: from assigning designers to work on the car’s new wings – shave off every second you legally can! – to managing the laboratories and workshops that your designers are based in. For example, do they really need an expensive but cutting edge wind tunnel to test out their inventions? Yes, they do if they are to get you the wins that you need to succeed!

Your range of duties can make it feel as though you are playing two games simultaneously because of the dual presentation. There is ‘behind the scenes’ stuff, with your research and development people, team details, the nitty-gritty of sponsorship agreements and so on – even including your emails, all accessed through a series of menus. You can even assign a pace level to drivers to assess how quickly they will pick up new skills and respond to changes.

The second part is the glossy glamorous face of the industry which is presented much as real life television shows the races to the public. You can even monitor your drivers’ tyres and comms, just like the real managers do from their small control centres near the pits, alerting drivers to changes in the weather or the advent of the safety car.

This latter part is wonderfully presented, and is bolstered by real Sky Sport commentators offering comments at appropriate moments. You can also listen into real race radio that you will be hard-pressed to distinguish from the real thing, next time you watch the racing! These wonderfully authentic touches give the game a grounded realness that is wonderful to experience.

The Nitty Gritty


As with any management game, the basics of the game come down to resources: how much have you got and which bit of the game needs it the most – and which will offer the greatest return? These are not always the same!

Formula 1 is an expensive business and you will spend more time and money than you thought possible immersing yourself in the minutiae of your cars’ tyres! As well as ensuring that all the cars have the right tyres in the right condition, you will be sourcing sponsorship deals – remember those emails – meeting with the board to secure more funding or justify your large budget, a budget that is needed to keep your cars in the top listings.

What’s New in The Game?


In summary, new to this game, F1 Manager 2022 has the following features:
  • Drivers can be signed from any of Formula 1, Formula 2, or Formula 3

  • Facilities can be upgraded – if you have the budget for it!

  • The game features realistic camera angles based on those used for the real races

  • It features a true to life broadcast presentation with realistic TV graphics

  • Any regulation changes can happen in real life will be implemented in the game

  • It features real life team radio from actual Formula 1 drivers and staff

  • The player can use the team's reserve driver in practice sessions, saving your celebrity driver for the big races and qualifying heats

  • There is a strategy editor where you can schedule pit stops, set the pace for each stent and a range of other tweaks

  • Your R&D people will enjoy parts development, although they might not like the cost cap you set for them!

  • F1 Manager for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    For the first f1 manager game is good, but i hope that the second one will have more features, better graphics, start from f2 and than go the f1(i know this is just me with this) and make the second season(if you start with merc, ferrari or redbull) harder.

    It's the old Motorsport manager with new, very cluttered interface, original F1 theme and other improvements, yet there's no gameplay improvements over the 2014 version. Whatever you chose or do outside the race has little to no impact at all. Very dissapointing.

    Been waiting for this title for months and it's been disappointing to say the least.

    Foundation of the game is solid enough but many game mechanics feel very alpha and it's quite evident that the lovely graphics were pushed hard to gloss over aspects of the game that are severely under cooked:

    - FP sessions are almost pointless. It's been shown that having a good or bad FP sessions will have very little bearing on overall lap time.

    - race management is basically an ERS management game; ERS+DRS are Stupidly overpowered

    - so once a driver overtakes another driver, it's rare they manage to get out their DRS zone before the next lap so you have this merry-go-round of overtakes which is terribly immersion breaking and dumb to look at.

    - the AI in general isn't great.

    - very little info in game on how to go about one of the most crucial aspects of an F1 Management game; designing parts

    In it's current state it's very shallow.

    The game has some Bugs on the IA behaviour. On a flying lap in qualy if a car is on exit lap they Will make you brake. But if you like games like Motorsport Manager and the F1 this is your game. You can't be worse than Binotto.
    • IA has some Bugs that would be corrected
